Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 147
L.E.T BREAKS WITH TRADITION WEDNESDAYS aren’t generally associated with professional golf yet the Ladies European Tour successfully broke with tradition by running last week’s Turkish Airlines Ladies Open on a Sunday to Wednesday schedule. It’s the first tournament on any circuit to conclude on the middle day of the week and shifted the golf public’s consciousness away from the traditional Thursday-to- Sunday timeframe. The LET made the move in a bid to lure a broader ‘off-peak’ television audience as the final three rounds would take place on ‘non-golf’ days of the week. According to the players, fans and sponsors, the move was a success with the #LETwednesday and #LOVEwednesday campaign gaining traction on Twitter. Englishwoman Melissa Reid led from start to finish, taking out the title by four strokes from France’s Gwladys Nocera at Carya Golf Club in Belek. JEAN THE QUEEN OF VICTORIA LISA Jean is set to make Australian golf history next year when she becomes the first female entrant in the men’s Victorian PGA Championship. The professional at Horsham Golf Club in western Victoria won her way into the field with an even-par 72 in last week’s PGA Professionals Championship of Victoria at Melbourne’s Eynesbury Golf Club.
