Golf Australia Express : GA Express 251
GOLF fashion has always been questionable to say the least, and not much changed at Royal Birkdale last week. Jason Day and Justin Thomas turned heads with some curious numbers in the opening round. Thomas sported a white shirt with a navy tie and cardigan combo, while Day wore white Nike Air Jordan high-top golf shoes, with black (almost jodhpur-like) trousers that stopped just above his ankle. T HERE is much to be said about the value of a good caddie. They do far more than carry the bag and advise on wind direction and playing lines. When the wind and rain struck Royal Birkdale in the second round, the likes of Steve Williams and Michael Greller came into their own. Williams called Adam Scott off a shot as he was about to pull the trigger – he could feel a gust of wind turning into their faces, which would have greatly affected the outcome of the shot. “One of his great attributes is he feels what's going on so much, more like a player than a caddie, I think,” Scott said. “I think on a day like today you really want to heighten your senses and that's the caddie's role, as well. It's just a day to focus because errors get magnified on a day like today. As much as the player doesn't want to make an error, the caddie doesn't want to, either, or it looks pretty bad.” B RANDEN Grace has now finished in the top-5 at five of the past 11 majors and is seriously knocking on the door for the PGA Championship next month. Proof of the quality of his game was his third round 62 – the first in men’s major championship history – which catapulted the South African from just inside the cut line to a spot high on the front page of the leaderboard. we learned...
