Golf Australia Express : Issue 25
WHILETHE world’s best battled it out in Arizona at the match Play, American rookie John Huh and Australian Robert Allenby staged a see-sawing head-to-head battle of their own at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico. And it all began after what was meant to be the final hole. Eight playoff holes later—yes you read correctly—and Tour rookie John Huh was enjoying his maiden PGA Tour victory. And at just 21, Huh showed he’s no ordinary rookie by winning in only his fifth start on Tour. Starting the final day seven shots adrift, Huh shot a scintillating 8-under 65 that included an eagle and six birdies around El Cameleon Golf Club to finish at 13-under. Still on the course, Allenby appeared to have the Mayakoba Golf Classic in the bag, holding a two-shot lead with one to play. That was until a rookie mistake from the 40-year-old veteran at the final hole—a double bogey cost no less—sent the match into overtime. “It’s amazing,” Huh said after the win. “It’s my rookie year...and playing in my fifth event on the PGA TOUR—I just couldn’t put it in words. “It’s really hard to explain this. It’s major. I mean, it was my dream.” The victory follows strong performances at the Farmers and Phoenix Open where Huh finished T6 and 12th respectively. He collected $666,000 for the win and moved to 9th on the money list. OTG WHAT JUST HAPPENED ON THE PGA TOUR...
