Golf Australia Express : August 2013 - PGA Championship
GOOD, BAD & THE UGLY ED’S WELCOME EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Damian Shutie firstname.lastname@example.org EDITORIAL TEAM Adrian Ballantyne Damian Shutie Mark Allen 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 ALOT of bizarre things happen on the golf course. I doubt too many are as strange as Vijay Singh's decision to pursue the PGA Tour for damages over his deer antler spray use earlier in the year. Inside this issue we look at why the former world No.1 should just move on from the whole ugly saga and concentrate on playing golf. After all, it only seems logical to defend a reputation worth defending, and when we take a look at Vijay's track record it appears the Big Fijian might be fighting a losing battle. From one World Golf Hall of Fame member to another, we switch to Phil Mickelson, still beaming from the 'best round of his career' on the way to winning his first Open Championship last month. As a fighter, it would seem Phil's career has been split into three acts—or rounds— that highlight just how far a determined player can get with a positive 'never say die' attitude on Tour. On the flip side, this month's Cover Story isn't about a great player continuing to climb higher, but rather a fallen star who also happens to be the defending champ of the PGA Championship. Rory McIlroy's game is sick. There's not much use in denying that. The real question is whether the illness is terminal or temporary. Listening to the language coming from the man himself, it's clear McIlroy is battling with a whole lot of self doubt that threatens to derail what could be an astonishing career. Of course, it's still early days for Rory, but when you consider what Sergio Garcia could have achieved with the right mindset all those years back...well, let's just hope Rors can sort himself out quick smart. And what better way to break away from the shackles that have apparently come with a $250 million endorsement deal, than to win the year's final major? We preview the PGA Championship and take a good look at its host course— the historic Oak Hill Country Club, one of New York's finest. And finally, I really should congratulate OTG senior writer Adrian Ballantyne on scoring his first hole in one recently. Welcome to the club AB—great to see you finally using that head of yours. See you on the green. DAMIAN SHUTIE Editor-in-Chief email@example.com Twitter: @dshutie PHOTOGRAPHY BY
