Known as one of the biggest hitters in the world, Colsaerts was the longest driver on the European Tour in 2010, 2012 and 2014, and owns the record for the longest drive in European Tour history, pounding a ball 447 yards at the 2014 Wales Open. Being huge off the tee isn’t everything, but Colsaerts is worth more than a glance. LEE WESTWOOD THOSE who witnessed Lee Westwood’s nail-biting victory over Greg Norman on the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff at the 1997 Australian Open at Metropolitan will always have a place in their heart for Westwood. The ultra- consistent Brit hasn’t won much in recent years, but he’s never far away and at the very least he’ll provide more than his share of entertainment over the four days in Sydney. NEXT year he’ll be captaining Europe’s Ryder Cup team, but this week Darren Clarke’s focus will be on turning in a good performance in Sydney where he’s certain to be one of the most popular players going around at The Australian. The Northern Irishman will be hoping to create slightly fonder memories at the Australian Open this time around, after the cart in which he was being driven famously (and dangerously) plunged into a bunker and flipped at the 2008 event.
