Golf Australia Express : March 2013
EURO FOR BAN, US AGAINST IT THE European Tour has backed the R&A and USGA in their proposed ban on anchoring putters. “Virtually all of our Tournament Committee and player representatives support the proposed rule even though they are aware, and have taken into account, the fact that some members, and especially our senior members, use the anchored method,” European chief executive George O’Grady said. However, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem has said the PGA Tour is opposed to the rule change. “We have to look at it from the standpoint of is it good, bad or indifferent for the game as a whole— professional level, amateur level—and we conclude that it's not [a bad thing],” Finchem said. RORY TO TELL THE WHOLE TOOTH ABOUT WALK OFF THE RORY McIlroy PR camp has gone into meltdown trying to salvage something from the world No.1's bizarre Honda Classic walk-off. Out of sorts at 7-over through eight holes in Round 2, the Northern Irishman called it quits, handing his card to playing partner Ernie Els before retreating. We were later told it was a 'toothache' from an impacted wisdom tooth that forced his withdrawal on Friday. But in an interview with Golf.com's Michael Bamberger, McIlroy admitted what he did at PGA National "was not good for the tournament, not good for the kids and the fans who were out there watching". "It was not the right thing to do,” he conceded. There's little doubt the incident has cost McIlroy fans—the one thing that ticks them off more than any other is a quitter. MAJOR MOVE FOR GOLF GAMERS VIDEO game buffs can rejoice—all four of golf’s majors are available to play in the new EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 game. Featuring the great Arnold Palmer alongside TW on the cover, the latest instalment of the franchise has 20 championship courses to play. And the ladies don’t miss out this time either, with an LPGA career mode allowing gamers to play through a season and attempt to win the Kraft Nabisco Championship. AROUND THE TRAPS A LONG LYLE COMING SANDY Lyle has been gifted a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish Golf Awards, 25 years after his Masters triumph. Lyle won The Open Championship in 1985 before becoming the first Briton to win the Masters three years later. He also collected 30 professional wins and played on five Ryder Cup teams.
