Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 138
MURDACA FINDS MASTERFUL FORM ANTONIO Murdaca could not have dreamed of a better build up to the Masters in a few weeks. Just days after returning from a reconnaissance trip to Augusta National, the 19-year-old returned home to Adelaide to win the South Australian Amateur Classic by seven strokes. Murdaca, who will fly back to the US next week, fired a 2-under 70 at Royal Adelaide to reach 11-under, with Sydney’s Brayden Petersen (-4) and Queensland’s Douglas Klein (-1) claiming second and third. In fact, they were the only other golfers under par for the event. MORE> _______________________________ TOUR MERGER TALKS “NONSENSE” PGA of Australia Chief Executive Brian Thorburn has dismissed as “nonsense” a British newspaper report that the PGA Tour of Australasia and the European Tour were in talks about a merger. “We have had discussions about the Perth International and renewal talks about that tournament but a conversation of merging and takeover of all events is completely off the mark,” Thorburn told SEN radio. Thorburn was reacting to a report in the Daily Mail by Derek Lawrenson, who wrote “negotiations have reached an advanced stage with the PGA of Australia for some sort of merger”. MORE> _______________________________ WHATEVER HAPPENED TO... ROBERT Gamez? It was 25 years ago this past weekend when the then 21-year-old won the Bay Hill Invitational in dramatic circumstances and added to the hard luck stories inflicted on Greg Norman. The Shark held the clubhouse lead with Gamez standing in the middle of the 18th fairway. The young man changed from a 6-iron to a 7-iron and promptly holed his second shot for an eagle and the win. He celebrated the victory by shouting his mates a big dinner at a local Taco Bell. Now 46, Gamez won just one more time (2005 Texas Open) creating a Tour record of 394 events between wins. Last year he underwent quadruple-bypass surgery.
