Dustin Johnson is surely going through a fantastic state lately - he has been the longest of hitters on PGA Tour with an average of 315.1 yards, owns 2nd best average & it seems that he is on his way to make big at Zurich Classic.
The 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play has come up with a new format this year that has been duly welcomed by pro golfers like Adam Scott & Jason Day.
Adam Scott has been teamed with Chris Kirk from America, Paul Casey from England & Francesco Molinari from Italy.
Paul is like the dark horse of the group who finished as runner-up in 2009 & 2010 events. Scott, who missed the 2014 WGC partly in protest of traditional Match play format, is hopeful that the latest change in format would be helpful for him.
Bubba Watson earlier told that he came to the Augusta National Golf Club in 2015 more set to defend his title than he was 2 years ago. And it really showed. Bubba, who has skidded on the Masters Tournament winner’s green jacket 2 of the last 3 years, started his bid to the 4th player to win back-to-back honors with a 1-under par Seventy-One. He trails leader Jordan Spieth by 7 shots going into Friday’s 2nd round.
Adam Scot, the Australian Golfer who currently holds the third rank has selected Mike Kerr, a Zimbabwean as his full time Caddie. Mike Kerr was the Caddie of Scott when he was playing at the Australian Open in November last year.
Mike Kerr got the fifth place in the competition. He was Scott’s caddie also in the month of December last year when he got the second place in the PGA Championship Australia. Kerr was offered the job of being the full time caddie for Adam Scott soon after that.
The United States did not enjoy the best of Ryder Cups this time around, suffering yet another defeat in the prestigious team event. But while the Europeans lay the claim to the famous trophy for yet another time, American golfer Matt Kuchar remains the undisputed king of the ping pong table.
Paul Casey is one of those names in the world of Golf these days which is a symbol of calmness. He is currently sitting at the 125th position of the FedEx cup standings which is the final spot for making it into the first end of season play-offs. This play-off will be starting off with the Barclays in the upcoming week. In a press conference held recently Casey looked calm and confident for the task ahead. He said that he was desperate to win it and play it in the next week. His desperation looked in his play as in the opening round he scored 65 two back of the current leader.
The Ryder cup is all set to be played and both the continents have started off their preparation for the cup. This year the Ryder cup will be played in the country of Scotland in the month of September. The US team has started off with announcing the players who will be representing them in Scotland this year. The US team made a big announcement this week as they named Tom Watson as their captain for Ryder cup 2014. Steve Stricker was named as the man who will act as the deputy to Watson.
The US Women’s Open this year is sure very different from its previous seasons, since it is the very first time in the history of golf that it is being hosted in the same golf course where the US Open for men was held. That is the reason why Juli Inkster was taken aback mildly, when the teeing off time was made public. Inkster at present is fifty three and will be taking part in her 35thUS Women;s Open. However Luci Li is just eleven and this is her maiden tournament.
With Tiger Woods not competing in the forthcoming Masters, the first thing that comes to anybody’s mind is that won’t the tournament suffer because of the absence of the 4 times champion. It definitely is a big deal that Tiger Woods will not be competing in the next week’s Augusta; nevertheless the Masters is a much bigger concept than a single player.
Australian golfer Adam Scott has mentioned that his performance of five over par at the World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship in Miami has proven that he still needs to work on his game, especially with the defense of his US Masters title looming large in front of him in a month.
The Australian did not manage to break par at any of the rounds throughout the event at the Trump National Doral, a whopping nine shots behind the eventual winner Patrick Reed.
