Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 151 - US Open Wrap
EURO TOUR CO-SANCTIONS AUST PGA THE Australian PGA Championship will reach more than 500 million viewers globally and be the richest tournament in Australia in 2015 thanks to a new co- sanctioning agreement announced today with the European Tour. The oldest and professional tournament on the PGA Tour of Australasia schedule will be played at the RACV Royal Pines Resort from December 3-6 and is expected to attract a number of the world’s best players with the prize fund increasing to $1.75 million. PGA of Australia Chief Executive Brian Thorburn said sanctioning with the European Tour would provide a greater reach with a new broadcast agreement through Europe, Asia and the US. “This will be the highest purse in Australian PGA Championship history and will position the tournament more strongly on the international stage with exposure to a greater broadcast platform than any of our previous tournaments,” he said. “This is a huge step forward for the tournament to rank alongside many of the great tournaments in Europe and Asia." MORE> LANGASQUE CLAIMS AMATEUR FRENCHMAN Romain Langasque fended off a strong challenge from Scot Grant Forrest to claim the 120th Amateur Championship at Carnoustie. Langasque put on a supreme display of ball-striking as he took command of the 36-hole Final and finished off the local favourite 4&2. He now gets a start in The Open Championship next month, next year’s US Open at Oakmont and he will invited to the Masters Tournament. The 20-year-old sealed the win on the par-3 34th hole when Forrest conceded the hole and the match after his tee shot had gone through the back of the green and his chip coming back went past the hole, while Langasque faced a 10ft birdie putt. “This is just a dream for me,” Langasque said. “It is just incredible that I am going to play at St Andrews in one month’s time for The Open. “When I came here I played my first practice round and played really well at Panmure maybe six or seven-under-par and then when I played my practice round here at Carnoustie I was maybe six or seven over so when it came to the first round I just tried to do my best on every shot."
