Golf Australia Express : January 2013
A FRESH START ED’S WELCOME EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Damian Shutie firstname.lastname@example.org EDITORIAL TEAM Mark Allen Adrian Ballantyne Will Hone Damian Shutie INSTRUCTIONAL EDITOR Mark Allen CONTACT US EDITORIAL - email@example.com ADVERTISING - firstname.lastname@example.org OTG Mag is produced and published by OTG Media Pty. Ltd © 2013 All Rights Reserved ANEW YEAR MEANS a new season. And a new season means a whole new opportunity for players on all tours around the world to make a name for themselves on the big stage. It's always fascinating to see a new season unfold, watching individuals gather momentum as the year progresses. Who's going to peak early and who will time their run to be at the top of their game come major time? Which little- known players will become a household name by the end of 2013? Will we see another 'old timer' step up and snatch a storied title, or will there be major redemption for the likes of Adam Scott? What game-changing equipment will manufacturers come up with this year? Will any of it actually change our game? Can Rory continue to dominate as world No.1 or will his much- publicised change in equipment sponsorship bring another unwanted change with it? Will Jason Dufner ever smile? These are the types of questions that cannon around my brain when I think about what lies ahead for the next 12 months. It's hard not to get excited about the prospect of watching all the unknowns become known with time. It's also a nice time to reflect on 2012—a year that saw many highs for many golfers and some real heartbreak for others. Inside this issue we look back at the highlights from 2012, as well as announcing this year's OTG awards—the ones golfers don't want to win. Sure, it's all in the name of fun, but that's what we're all about at OTG. We also take a look at billionaire mining magnate Clive Palmer and whether his involvement in golf in this country is a good thing for the industry. It's a fascinating read to say the least. This month we also welcome a new contributor to OTG—the one and only Mark Allen. The former Tour player and current SEN broadcaster will be voicing his opinions on all things golf each month. Marko, welcome aboard mate. Most of all, I'd like to wish each and every one of our loyal readers a ripping year full of fun, laughter, health, happiness and plenty of golf. See you on the greens.
