Golf Australia Express : November 2012
STROKE OF GENIUS FOR A ROLLERCOASTER of emotions, Nick Watney’s week on the PGA Tour was hard to beat. His caddie— Chad Reynolds—fainted from heat exhaustion and couldn’t complete the first round at the CIMB Classic, with Watney’s wife Amber stepping in as his looper for the final hole. He parred the 18th to card a first-round 71. Watney used a stand-in caddie for the Friday round before Reynolds returned for the weekend and helped his boss card a round of 61 on Sunday to win—and pocket a nice little earner for himself. NATIONAL DILEMMA GRAEME MCDOWELL HAS sought guidance on which nation he should play for at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. McDowell could play for Ireland or suit up for Britain. Fellow countryman Rory McIlroy has already suggested he’ll be representing Britain in Rio, receiving an avalanche of backlash from (former) fans in Ireland. RORYING BACK RORY HAS CONFIRMED he'll be teeing it up at the Australian PGA Championship in December—only it’s not that Rory. South African Rory Sabbatini returns to Coolum for the first time since blowing a 54-hole lead at the event in 2007. “It’s been an up and down year for me, but the Australian PGA will be a great way to finish off the year,” six- time PGA Tour winner Sabbatini said. Australians Brendan Jones and Marc Leishman have also committed to play the year-ending event. WHISKY BUSINESS RAISE A GLASS—the Australian Masters has a new title sponsor. To be played at Kingston Heath from November 15-18, event promoter IMG announced the first of our regular big three events would be renamed the ‘Talisker Masters’. Diageo Australia managing director Tim Salt said it was a fitting blend. “Scotch whisky and golf are arguably two of Scotland’s greatest gifts to the world,” he said. “So it seems fitting that Talisker— the celebrated Scotch whisky from the Isle of Skye—and the Australian Masters come together to write a new chapter in the tournament’s long tradition.” We'll drink to that.
