Golf Australia Express : Issue 6
WHENYOU’RE ranked No.4 in the world at age 22 and have already won a major, it’s only fair you’ll go into a PGA Championship as a favourite. Talking up your chances heading in will only add to that hype. Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is exuding confidence heading to Atlanta Athletic, and he stands the outright favourite. DUSTIN JOHNSON goes into the PGA as the sentimental favourite. The class shown after missing out on last year’s playoff for a rules violation endeared the young American to many. He has the game to win and deserves a little fortune. And at about $26 with the bookies, he’s worth a flutter. MANYIN the golf world underestimate Luke Donald. No so the bookies. After the past decade, it seems weird the current World No.1 golfer has never won a major. (Neither has the World No.2, Lee Westwood, for that matter.) Can Donald finally get off his duck? WITHTWO wins on the US Tour this season and a 6th standing in FedEx Cup, the 2010 PGA runner-up brings some serious game to Atlanta Athletic. Bubba’s odds are way out with the bookmakers. If you like a flutter, this man is your moneymaker. IFEVER we were due to get a pick right, this is it. Australia’s Jason Day is shaping up to claim his maiden major victory at Atlanta Athletic this week. His major form this year has been major impressive. The World No.7 has finished runner-up at two of the last three, is in career-best form and at just 23 years of age still plays with the freedom of youthful exuberance. He plays well on US courses—a long game, superb wedge-play and tight putting will set a player up for that. And he’s got plenty of support in the galleries. A win here would not only secure the fourth first-time major winner on Tour this season—the first time since 2003— but also top off a fantastic year for Day, who’s enjoyed eight top 10s in 16 events, sits 12th in the FedEx Cup standings, and has already pocketed $3.1 million in prizemoney. He’s had his backers for quite a while now, but never before has his game seemed so mature. Unflappable in the clutch, his steely nerves under pressure show it’s not so much ‘if’ Day will win a major, but rather when his first will come? We believe the answer is Sunday.
