Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 176
weird and wonderful 2015INREVIEW NOT every golfer named Jordan has things fall their way in 2015. Washburn University golfer Jordan Hecker is forced to withdraw from a college tournament in Missouri after a 10-centimetre tee impales his left foot after he treads on it. FORMER Australian PGA champion Daniel Popovic sees his practice session at his home club of The Heritage interrupted by a kangaroo intent on boxing some of the flagsticks on the practice green. IN THE playoff for the Lotte Championship in Hawaii, Sei Young Kim defeats Inbee Park by holing a full 8-iron shot from the fairway moments after chipping in just to force extra holes. The South Korean would win three times in her rookie LPGA season. PLAY stops during The Open due to high winds at St Andrews. The weather is so bad at times at the Home of Golf that The Open finishes on a Monday for the first time since 1988. AT THE Wyndham Championship in August, Tiger Woods holds the 36-hole lead. That used to not be strange at all but these days it is. WHILE co-leading the US Open, Branden Grace misses the golf course with his tee shot and instead hits a train line running alongside Chambers Bay. The South African double-bogeys the 70th hole and shares fourth place. PHIL Mickelson and Zach Johnson lose two holes while playing only one in their fourball match against Jason Day and Adam Scott at the Presidents Cup. Mickelson is pinged for playing the wrong type of ball as their match finishes all-square. STRAIGHT after the Presidents Cup in his homeland, Sang-moon Bae is required to sit out two years in the prime of his career in order to enlist in the Korean military. Even elite sportspeople cannot escape the mandatory service term. RICHARD Green cards an albatross by holing his drive at the par-4 1st hole at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links during the pro-am for the Victorian Open. The ball initially finds a greenside bunker before slingshotting off the lip and straight into the cup. Five days later, Green wins the tournament while his fiancée Marianne Skarpnord takes the concurrently run women’s title. BIG-HITTING Spaniard Alvaro Quiros can’t manage the final foot of the 12th hole at the Portugal Masters. He botches a six- footer for birdie then watches in horror as his tap-in for par is spat back at him off the back rim of the cup. 10 QUIRKIEST THINGS TO HAPPEN IN GOLF IN 2015
