Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 173
SPIETH WARMS UP IN MELBOURNE WORLD No.1 Jordan Spieth played golf on the famous Melbourne Sandbelt last week, just a few kilometres away from where the Australian Masters was being played. The reigning Masters and US Open Champion will defend his Emirates Australian Open title at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney this week after playing the likes of Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath. His Australian coach, Cameron McCormick, accompanied the 22-year-old for the social rounds and he was happy to pose for some photos and sign autographs for members at both clubs. With several tweets being sent during the course of his rounds, many in the Twittersphere quite rightly asked why the Texan was not playing the Australian Masters if he happened to be in town. Simple answer...his contract to play the Australian Open in Sydney prohibits him from playing in any other event in Australia. ____ ______ ______ ______ ______ ______ _ NORMAN MEDAL NOMINEES NAMED THE PGA of Australia has released the list of nominees who are in line for the inaugural Greg Norman Medal to be presented at a gala evening on the Gold Coast on December 1. The Greg Norman Medal will be presented to the best male or female professional golfer on the world stage in 2015, with eight nominees selected by a five-member panel – Adam Scott, Jason Day, Matt Jones, Marc Leishman, Steve Bowditch, Minjee Lee, Rebecca Artis and Karrie Webb. MORE> ____ ______ ______ ______ ______ ______ _ JOHN WINS ARGENTINE AMATEUR VICTORIAN Cameron John has fought back from a sluggish start to win the Argentinian Amateur Championship 2 & 1 in the final. John and Queenslander Anthony Quayle, Australia’s sole representatives in the championships, squared off in one semi final earlier on the final day and it was John who prevailed in a low scoring match. The 16-year-old, from Ferntree Gully in Melbourne, moved into the final against Brazil’s Andre Tourinho. Having been drained by the semi final match in the morning, John found himself three down through the opening four holes of the final. He fought back strongly and had squared the match heading into the back nine. With momentum now in his favour, John closed out the match on the 17th to claim the 120th championship.
