Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 158 - PGA Preview
I T MIGHT just be the best news that Dustin Johnson has ever heard. If only it came five years earlier. As Johnson walks up the 18th fairway at Whistling Straits this week, he’ll be forgiven for stealing a glance up to his right and wondering for the umpteenth time what might have been. He’ll be scanning for that innocuous smattering of sand that cost him the 2010 PGA Championship; the spot where his club fatefully brushed the ground, contravening the tournament rules and costing him any chance of being a part of a playoff with Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson. It’s a patch of Wisconsin coastline that has defined Johnson for all the wrong reasons. Those with a superstitious bent would argue that it was the first sign that the now 31-year-old is destined to go through his career without a major victory; that any time he is poised to join golf’s elite club, something will conspire to rip it from him. But those same non-believers can’t deny the symbolism of what the tournament organisers at Whistling Straits have done as they prepared to host the year’s final major. When (or if) Johnson tries to find that tainted smear of sand, he’ll find a thumping great grandstand in its place. “There’s a big stand over Dustin’s bunker,” Graeme McDowell told the Golf Channel after completing a practice round. 1 NIGHT $149PP TWIN SHARE 2 NIGHTS TWIN SHARE $280PP 3 NIGHTS TWIN SHARE $349 PP ENJOY: Deluxe suite accomm Free wifi Free in-house movies Unlimited golf + cart for the duration of stay Daily buffet breakfast Day spa vouchers STAY& PLAY southern highlands (02) 4862 8600 gibraltarbowral.com.au
