The Australian Open 2011

  • Golf Tour News

We are now in countdown for what will be the best two weeks of golf Australia has ever seen, and I can’t wait!

Aussie Open next week at The Lakes.  I played there last week, wow the course is great and it will be in tremendous condition for the tournament. If it blows at all it will be tough, but hey, these guys bomb it 300 plus and average 28 putts around so it should be a snack… Let’s hope the tournament officials don’t wimp out and keep the greens long and slow. I’d love to see them running 11 or 12 plus on the stimpmeter.  Colin Montgomery has been quoted on Tiger being picked, and suggested that “Tiger has been picked for his stature in the game and for other reasons…” What a joke… if you had to have someone playing for your life I somehow think you wouldn’t be picking Keegan Bradley over Tiger, let’s be serious for once.  All Tiger needs to do around The Lakes is hit his Stinger from the tee and putt well and he will win!

As for Presidents Cup – The US Team is outstanding and I think the event will be great!  I think the Internationals will win only just and it will be on the back of Normans two Captain’s picks Baddeley & Allenby.  Allenby will fire up and not get beat around Royal Melbourne; he will love playing back in Melbourne and with Badds putting the spots off it he will be hard to beat.  I hope Norman pairs them together.

So if you’re not excited you’re not a golfer! Bring it on…
