Golf Australia Express : November 2013
SIMON SAYS, 'UH, OH' A TV viewer brought down European Tour player Simon Dyson at the BMW Masters when the keen- eyed fan spotted him breaking a rule on the 8th green. Dyson was seen using his ball to tamp down the green in the line of his par putt—a breach of a rule that stipulates players cannot touch the line of their putt—and was reported. Dyson was disqualified and will now face a disciplinary hearing, where he could receive anything from a reprimand to expulsion from the Tour. AROUND THE TRAPS AN OPEN BONUS IN SYDNEY HERE’S a massive bonus for any bolter who manages to spring up and grab the Australian Open: a spot in The Open Championship next year. The top three finishers at our Open who aren’t otherwise exempt will secure their place in golf’s most elite field, under a new initiative that does away with the traditional qualifying format. Defending champion Peter Senior said it was a “fantastic development”, although he probably wishes he’d won a year later. BURKE THE BIGGEST BOMBER A LAZY $250,000 in the pocket and the knowledge that few par fours are safe off the tee. Not a bad night’s work for Tim Burke, who won the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Burke crushed his winning shot 427 yards and anointed it as the greatest shot he’d ever hit. “I’ve never hit a better ball in my life,” he said. “I knew it was going to end there.” CLUBGLOVE.COM.AU
