Golf Australia Express : January 2013
TRAVELLING TOUR THE PGA Tour will venture outside the comfort of the United States three times in the first six tournaments of the 2013-14 season. The PGA has revealed the six events that will carry the Tour through to the end of the 2013 calendar year, including the OHL Classic in Mexico, which shifts from a February slot, the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in Shanghai and the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, which will be an official PGA Tour event for the first time. LPGA ROOKIE FLURRY THE LPGA Tour welcomes 35 new faces in 2013, with a top group of rookies set to join the world’s best women. Among them will be four Australians, including Yarrawonga’s Breanna Elliot, who missed out on full LPGA status after coming unstuck in a seven-player playoff in the final stage of Q School. BAH-RAINING TITLES ENGLISH GOLFER Andrew Marshall completed a hat-trick of titles in Bahrain with a victory in the Fifth King Hamad Trophy at the Royal Golf Club. The 39-year-old won the three-round event at nine- under, with second-placed Younes El Hassani five strokes back at the European Tour event. BMW THE CHAMP OF CHAMPS THE BMW Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club has been named the PGA Tour’s tournament of the year for 2012. The event was one of the Tour’s best patronised, attracting 143,000 spectators over four days. The Travelers Championship also picked up a number of awards, including Most Fan Friendly event, Best Use of Players and Best Title Sponsor Integration. MONTY A SHOO-IN FOR IMMORTAL FAME COLIN MONTGOMERIE will be the latest golf star to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Monty, who won the Harry Vardon Trophy as Europe’s top player eight times, will be honoured alongside longtime former European Tour boss Ken Schofield.
