Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 154 - The Open preview
FOWLER THE TOAST OF THE SCOTS LINKS-LOVIN’ Rickie Fowler called on every ounce of his ability to succeed in trying conditions in sealing a one-stroke victory at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Gullane Golf Club. The American birdied the last hole to clip compatriot Matt Kuchar and France’s Raphael Jacquelin by a shot in a gripping finale. Authoring a finish reminiscent of his electric run at the Players Championship in May, Fowler birdied three of the last four holes to card a 68. He closed in style, rifling his second shot to the 18th to tap-in distance to end Kuchar’s hopes. Jacquelin needed a hole-out eagle on the last to tie and came within inches of pulling off the shot but had to settle for a share of second. Fowler now hopes to match the deeds of his friend Phil Mickelson two years ago by capturing both the Scottish Open and Open Championship in one fortnight. “Phil mentioned to me, win this and there’s a good chance you win next week, so I had to take care of business,” Fowler said. “I don’t know what’s so special about links golf but it’s my favourite. The golf course can play so different day after day and it presents a new challenge. It was a good test this week at Gullane." MORE> _______________________________ JACK & ARNIE TAKE ON KEY US OPEN ROLES IT might be 11 months away, but the 2016 US Open is already shaping as a legend-filled occasion with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer named as honorary co- chairmen of the 116th championship at Oakmont Country Club. The duo made golf history at the Pittsburgh course in 1962, when 22-year-old Nicklaus defeated Palmer in an 18-hole playoff to win his first major and the first of four US Opens. “Golf fans cannot help but connect these two extraordinary players to Oakmont,” said USGA president Thomas O’Toole Jnr. “They are ambassadors for our game, and it’s only fitting that they serve together as we bring our ninth US Open to this storied venue.” “Hopefully I don’t sound presumptuous, but I am sure both Arnold and I are extremely honoured to be asked to serve in these roles,” Nicklaus said.
