Golf Australia Express : Issue 45—The British Open
“I’ve played a lot of Opens now and I should be able to make this adjustment no problem at all.” AUSTRALIANS AT THE OPEN & THEIR RANKINGS: Adam SCOTT 13 John SENDEN 35 Aaron BADDELEY 50 Geoff OGILVY 55 Greg CHALMERS 63 Marcus FRASER 78 Marc LEISHMAN 80 Robert ALLENBY 100 Brendan JONES 106 Brad KENNEDY 128 Nicholas CULLEN 341* Ashley HALL 610* Aaron TOWNSEND 849* * International Final Qualifying (Australasia) ADAMSCOTTISAMANona mission this week. As Australia's highest-ranked player at Royal Lytham & St Annes he remains our best hope to lift the claret jug. The 32-year-old is feeling fresh, having teed it up at just nine events this season. The light playing schedule reflects his desire for one thing—winning a major: "I’ve set my schedule to prepare and practise a lot better for the majors and it’s definitely paying off,” Scott said. "I feel like my game stands up to four days of major championship golf better." “I love The Open and I really feel my game, ballstriking-wise, is going strength to strength and the short game is on a nice path as well.” The last Australian to win a British Open was Greg Norman in 1993, a fact our boys are sick of hearing repeated. So can that change this week? "If you can have a good adjustment and get comfortable quickly then I think you’re starting ahead of the field,” Scott said. “I’ve played a lot of Opens now and I should be able to make this adjustment no problem at all. “I just want to play. “It’s time to kind of jump out of the gates.” And that's exactly what we'd like to see this week. Best of luck Scotty. OTG LUCKY 13?
