Golf Australia Express : December 2013
JAPANESE STAR U.S. BOUND HIDEKI Matsuyama plans to hit the PGA Tour next year, and who knows what he might do there. The Japanese whiz has become the first rookie to win his home tour's money title after winning the Casio World Open to bring his season victory tally to five. Matsuyama recorded six top 25 finishes from his seven starts at PGA Tour-sanctioned events after turning pro in April. Q-ING UP FOR Q-CARDS SPEAKING of Japan, a brigade of Aussies is tackling the final stage of Q-school for the Japan Golf Tour this week in a bid to secure a card for next year. Among the names vying for 30 premium spots are Stephen Leaney, Adam Bland and Daniel Popovic [pictured], who will play off in the gruelling 108-hole event at the Cocopa Resort Club's King and Queen courses. AROUND THE TRAPS LET IT RHEIN AMONGST the Australian Open fanfare, it was easy to forget there were some great stories among the battlers in the Royal Sydney field. Rhein Gibson— better known as the bloke who last year shot the lowest golf score ever recorded (55)—won his place at next year's Open Championship courtesy of a fourth-place finish, putting him among the top three finishers who weren't already guaranteed a spot. Best of luck to the man they now call "Mr 55". PRO AM SEASON THE first days of summer mean only one thing in Aussie golf: it's pro-am season. PGA Tour gun Marc Leishman did as expected in winning the Torquay Sands Surf Coast event with a six-under 66, Manly Golf Club first year trainee Taylor Cooper claimed his first win at the JMD Camden Pro-AM, while fellow rookie Tim Hart got the job done in the biggest win of his career at the Bartons/BMD event at Wynnum Golf Club. COMING 2014 NO ORDINARY GOLF CLUB.
