Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 174
T HERE are two ways you can look at the Australian PGA Championship. You can bemoan the fact that the tournament’s headline act is world No.37 Brandt Snedeker, who’s in somewhat of a funk, having missed the cut at his last two events and having not recorded a top 10 result since finishing tied for 10th at the Travelers Championship in June. You can express disappointment that a tournament reborn amid much fanfare two years ago at Royal Pines, and that attracted US superstar Rickie Fowler, eventual winner Adam Scott and Marc Leishman, is so bereft of big names that it is touting Swedish world No.55 David Lingmerth as a genuine drawcard. Or you can view it as a chance to see a group of young golfers competing for Australia’s richest tournament purse and eager to prove why they’ll be deserving of top billing here in future years. For our own sanity and to save our families from another week of ear bashing about how badly things have deteriorated since Greg Norman’s halcyon days, we’re taking the second option.
