Golf Australia Express : GA Express 226
L AST weekend was supposed to be all about Tiger Woods. Well, not all about him, but a large chunk of the pre-Farmers Insurance Open rhetoric was understandably centred on how Woods would fare in his first truly competitive hitout for the better part of two years. Woods’ name did feature, too, in the post- tournament wash-up, despite the fact that he was done and dusted on Friday, having shot rounds of 76 and 72 to miss the cut, along with world No.1 Jason Day. But the whispers about Woods were only to draw fleeting comparisons with the PGA Tour’s latest young superstar Jon Rahm, who emerged from a Sunday logjam with a career- shaping back nine to claim his maiden PGA Tour title. Just as we all came to terms with what Justin Thomas has already achieved this season, a 22-year-old Spaniard rolled in a 60-foot eagle putt at the 18th hole to seal his first win just 12 tournaments into his professional career. What of Woods? In a stunning parallel, the former world No.1 was just 23 when he, too, poured in an eagle at the last for a 65 to capture his first Farmers Insurance title. "I THINK HE’S ONE OF THE TOP PLAYERS IN THE WORLD. I THINK THERE’S AN INTANGIBLE THAT SOME GUYS HAVE WHERE THEY WANT TO HAVE THE PRESSURE, THEY WANT TO BE IN THAT TOUGH POSITION, THEY WANT TO HAVE EVERYTHING FALL ON THEIR SHOULDERS. AND HE HAS THAT."
