Golf Australia Express : Summer of Golf 2012-13
Our 'Summer' of Golf ED’S WELCOME EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Damian Shutie email@example.com SENIOR WRITER Adrian Ballantyne EDITORIAL CONTRIBUTORS Sam Gole Will Hone NATIONAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER Sam Gole sam @otgmag.com.au 0412 230 769 CONTACT US EDITORIAL - firstname.lastname@example.org ADVERTISING - email@example.com OTG Mag is produced and published by OTG Media Pty. Ltd © 2012 All Rights Reserved THEREIS SOMETHING VERY Australian about calling our local season the 'Summer of Golf'— especially when considering half the scheduled events on the calendar fall within spring. But for Australians, summer is more than just a season. It's a way of life. Those in the north of the country enjoy an almost year-long summer, making the most of the good weather enjoying more rounds than at a work Christmas party. In contrast, our southern state dwellers are only now starting to come out of their frost-bitten shells, shaking off a bitterly cold winter with thoughts of sun-filled rounds keeping them going. Our nation's weather is as varying and fickle as one game of golf to the next. You've gotta love it. There's little doubt that summer in Australia is synonymous with 'golf' for many of us—so too is the PGA Tour of Australasia. Getting out to watch local and international stars tee it up on some of our finest tracks is an experience that can't be matched. This season, our big trio—Australian Masters, Emirates Australian Open and Australian PGA Championship— has morphed into a quartet with the inclusion of the $2 million Perth International in October. Being a co- sanctioned event with the European Tour will mean some pretty hot golf will be played. And with an array of big name players again committing to play Down Under over the warmest months, this golf season promises to produce some huge spectacles—about the size of Tom Kite's, I'm tipping. Again we'll have the chance to see the likes of the legendary Tom Watson, Darren Clarke, Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Justin Rose and Jason Dufner in the flesh—not literally thank god—at various tournaments during the summer. And you'll find all the information you'll need about who's playing at which events inside this special Summer of Golf issue. We also preview every tournament on the PGA Tour of Australasia schedule as well as throw in a level of interactivity you won't find anywhere else, just to keep it fun and interesting for you readers. Feel free to use this issue as a bit of a summer golf guide—come back as often as you wish for player or tournament information and don't forget to send your mates our way, too. This PGA Tour of Australasia guide is unashamedly free—we want to see as many people interested in the greatest game of them all during summer. And while you're at it, be sure to get out to an event or two if you get the chance. There's plenty of fine golf on offer all over this great nation for the next five months. And it just wouldn't be 'summer' in Australia without them. See you on the green. DAMIAN SHUTIE Editor-in-Chief firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @OTGmag PHOTOGRAPHY BY
