Golf Australia Express : GA Express 222
HE’S not quite the force he once was, but Englishman Ian Poulter will still undoubtedly draw a crowd wherever he goes at Royal Pines. Poulter currently sits at 160 in the world rankings, his lowest since his first full season as a pro in 2000, having sat out 20 weeks through the middle of the year with a foot injury. It’s also been four years since his last professional win and he missed the cut at his last two events on the PGA Tour. But you don’t reach No.5 in the world by accident, and the Australian PGA could be the perfect place for him to get things going again. POULTER TO PLAY BACK-TO- BACK? SPEAKING of Nathan Holman, it’s been somewhat of a lean 12 months for the Melburnian, who rode his winning form last year to a string of solid results and a career high ranking of 149 in the two months afterwards, but has since fallen off the map, with his last 16 events yielding eight missed cuts and two withdrawals. For a player seeking confidence, there might be no better time to return to the scene of his only professional victory. A SENIOR MOMENT THERE’LL be a big hole in the field this year, with three-time Australian PGA winner Peter Senior announcing his retirement during the Australian Open. Senior holds the remarkable distinction of having won the event while aged in his 30s, 40s and 50s, and the week will be all the poorer without him. A KINDER TEST THE 2015 Australian PGA was the tournament’s first outing on the newly revamped Royal Pines layout, and the course wasn’t kind to anyone. Nathan Holman’s final even-par total for the four days was enough to secure victory, but things should open up at this year’s event, with 12 months of course maturity expected to deliver softer greens and better scoring.
