Golf Australia Express : December 2013
LETTERS WHAT A THRILLING MATCH and such a deserved win by Jason Day at the World Cup of Golf. I was cheering him on at the US Masters when another great Aussie held on to win that day. JD has done the hard yards and I believe his time is nigh to win a share of those majors. His [World Cup] win was even more remarkable given it was in the shadow of the tragic loss of several family members in Hurricane Haiyan. Wonderful that he could also share the winning of the World Cup with Adam Scott. Truly a historic day and I hope all Australian golfers will be as thrilled as I am at the rise and rise of Jason Day. Bloody bewdy, mate. —MICHAEL VAN VLIET, VIA EMAIL THE LETTER OF THE MONTH RECEIVES A DOZEN CALLAWAY HEX BLACK TOUR BALLS IN ALL my nearly 60 years of watching golf—either on television or live—I don't believe that I have ever seen such an exhibition of driving that Adam Scott showed us at Royal Pines—particularly on Thursday. The nearest I can come for sheer brilliance and exhibition was probably Greg Norman at his best. Good on you, Scotty! —HAMISH GLASGOW, VIA EMAIL IT FEELS like double standards when Simon Dyson is disqualified for his infringement and could face further sanctions yet Tiger Woods has numerous infringements for what seems like no penalty. The Masters was the shocker—surely he signed an incorrect card and should have been disqualified. Maybe the TV rights play an important role in some decisions! —WENDY GREIG, VIA EMAIL YOUR THOUGHTS LETTER OF THE MONTH I WAS very touched by the way the players supported Jarrod Lyle throughout his comeback tournament. Jarrod played very well and I am sure he will get back to his best form for the PGA Tour. I wish Jarrod all the very best for his future career. —GRAHAM ROPER VIA EMAIL MARK (Allen), your comments re Tiger Woods [OTG November] are spot on. Further, I think the right man to be No.1 currently sits at No.2. The golf world needs Adam Scott rather than Tiger Woods as its face and de facto role model. Let's hope he gets there sooner rather than later. —PE TER BELLIS TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS
