Golf Australia Express : Issue 14
SEVEN SHOTS off the lead heading into the final round, a remarkable 65 and 18-under total from Australia’s Richard Green was enough to overrun the field. “ I thought I was a little too it far back,” Green said after the win. “I set out there today to shoot a good scoreandIhad64inmy mind and I thought if I got anywhere near, I would have a great week.” Spain’s Pablo Martin appeared to have the win in his grasp for much of the final round. But the 24-year- old bogeyed the 13th, 15th and 16th and ended his challenge when he drove into water at the 18th. He dropped to a share of sixth. Tied for second at 16-under were Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño, Swede Robert Karlsson, Dutchman Joost Luiten and Italy’s Ryder Cup star Francesco Molinari—who carded his second 10-under round for the week. MARTINKAYMER heads the field this week and is the hot favourite to take out the €416,660 first prize cheque. The 26-year- old German reached the world No. 1 ranking early this year—albeit briefly— and will look for his second European Tour win of the season. Kaymer’s sole 2011 victory came at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship back in January. He’s twice finished inside the top 30 at this event in 2007 and’08. BIG HITTING Alvaro Quiros returns to the Arnold Palmer-designed Oceânico Victoria Golf Course aiming to be the first player to win the title twice. The 28-year-old Spaniard won here in 2008 by three shots at 19-under. But his 2011 season has been a mixed one. A return to this happy hunting ground might be what Quiros needs to recapture the early season form that saw him win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and finish 2nd at the Qatar Masters.
