making the decision. “After I played well in Portugal that pretty much had me in at Turkey, and I was almost thinking ‘I don’t know that I really want to play that well at the end of the year, because then I will be in Dubai and I won’t be able to play the Australian Open’,” Herbert said. “Early on I was like, ‘No I want to go home and play’ and then once I saw the opportunities that Dubai could give me, then I realised I kind of had to play. “And then if I get to top-50 in the world and my career progresses quite quickly and this time next year we are sitting in a position where I am quite a lot higher ranked in the world and I’m a bit more of a household name in Australian golf, then that’s when I can have a better opportunity to come back at the end of the year and play the Australia Open and hopefully attract more crowds and hopefully bring a bigger hype to the event. “As much as it was annoying to miss this year, in terms of giving back to Australian golf it could actually do me and the country some good if I was to play well.” Although it is to be admired – and if things progress as Herbert plans, appreciated – his love affair with tournament golf in his home country might come as a surprise to some. I’m going to have to try and get in that Presidents Cup team next year, because seeing tournaments back here at the Sandbelt is awesome, I want to be part of one. - LUCAS HERBERT Herbert jokes with Tiger Woods during a practice round at Carnoustie.
