13th March 2020 Players Championship and Coronavirus

The Players Championship halted, well cancelled after Hideki Matsuyama's dazzling first round of 63 and impressive tied for 2nd group at 65. Was there disappointment? Well the players did not show it as such...

The players really get it, for them its no danger at all as there are miles apart on the golf course, you gotta think of others, it is for the fans, the crowds' safety, the wider public, our loved ones and the medical workers. The world stood still and golf just followed.

 

15th April 2019 2:55am - 83rd Masters Tournament 2019

He has done the impossible, still able to turn it on down the stretch but not the extraordinary amount more than 10 years ago, just enough to close it out.

Just incredible with all the doubts(not just his but his fellow younger competitors as well) and without the Tiger power of the yesteryears.....a win with the heart and believe, against time, against us not wanting to see him disappointed.

You would not believe it, as it happened:-

Masters 2017 - What a Difference a Day Makes

At least for Sergio Garcia after 2 decades since appearing on the scene as the young matador mostly likely to take on Tiger Woods and it did start with a bang at the 1999 PGA Tour Championship, not winning by a shot. At just 19years old, "it was just a matter of time". However "time" did not come again until the 2007 British Open which playoff was a battle of the would first breakthrough major championship winner. Padraig had the Irish luck that day,

And it would take another decade again, in 2017, that unknown to all Sergio still had it in him, letting the competition slip into playoff and holding it during sudden death. Truly, what a difference a day makes....green jacket fashion!

Masters Tournament 2016

Sunday

Congratulations and commiserations, that's what everyone's calling it, so you know what happened.

Winner is Saujana Golf & Country Club!

 

Day 3

It went according to "plan" at least for Spieth, McIlroy not able to make a dent to the leader under armour. Rory did not play badly, 3bogeys and a double. He got near to the pins but no birdies for the round. Jordan was the one struggling tee to green, opening drives to the right maybe just forcing it a bit to keep pace with Rory.

On numerous occasions, Rory had to wait for Jordan to putt first with the advantage being closer to the hole but Jordan made the birdie he did not, on the 12th after both of them double bogeyed the previous 11th and then on the 15th par 5.

Masters 2019 a

McIlroy losses ground on his bread & butter hole 15th. Spieth went along with his process which looks pretty much looks like something he learned from Tiger or at least from watching him, limit the risks get it on the green and make the 20/30-foot putt. On the Augusta National greens it seems there is no advantage being within 10feet as it shows everyone still struggles to one putt. Or course par saves from 5/6 feet helps.

Will it be a two peat? Will the putting hold up under constant pressure? Yes, but everyday is Sunday.

 

Ding Ding Round 2

Suddenly a major contender entered the ring. The main fight is actually in Round 3, last pairing. Young Guns Part2. How would it affect Jordan Spieth's "believe in the process"? He showed yesterday at some point there is no procedure but still managed to contain any major fallout to keep the lead. Surely playing with McIlroy in the last pairing Day 3 with only a one shot advantage, you will need to add a little appendix to the process. Will Spieth make some adjustments? How will the dynamics between the two be:-


Will this be Jordan Spieth's view throughout the round, Rory by the side of the fairway 50yards out in font looking back, waiting with arms folded? Are you coming? I guess we will get some looks by Rory if he gets the upper hand just to add that little pressure. And Jordan would know it too and have that calculated too. Yeah but McIlroy unlike Dustin Johnson has one more major than you, and that's got to play at the back of your mind. Reaching the green in two but missing a 5-footer birdie while the other guy goes by regulation and nails in a 20 or 30-footer, will also get to you. Tough as nails + precision golf vs Power + finesse golf. Who won again Batman vs Superman? Us.


First Day

How is it even possible that this kid actually does what he says he will do?

Anyone who has played golf knows you set your goal each round before you tee off, the expectation to hit the mark is there(I guess more frequent for pros) but it is not within you, you just can't say you will do it as defending champion at Augusta National on the first day and take a 2-shot lead at 66, exclaiming "Got it!" hitting out from behind a tree at the 11th to save par in the process. A "Phew!..." would have made all of us feel a lot better. And it is not because a 22-year old will be brash, he is stating it and doing it like it is a matter of fact.

Jordan Spieth doesn't have the power tools of Tiger or Rory or Day which makes us golfers ask if what we have achieved even counts for anything. He can control destiny. We want to see Spieth do it but with a surprise or appreciative appearance. Now we want watch Spieth not winning it in the next three days (nothing against Jordan) just to validate the point you can't believe you can control the Masters.

Somehow if he doesn't win, I got feeling it will be just like losing last year's British Open he played the way that he said he would. Only a better play emerged.


June 2015

115th US Open Championship

Dustin Johnson missed out on a full 18th hole playoff with Jordan Spieth by missing a 3-footer birdie after a missed eagle putt to win from 12-feet. The immense pressure was understandable, was he thinking of the winning putt and did not consider the return putt. The 3-footer was no gimme but highly makeable, should he have taken more time to calm himself? It is a tough putt under the circumstances, he lasted 18-holes to find out if he could win and yet it will take another 18th holes. Mentally to put yourself through that, you got to wanna play win or lose. Jordan Spieth was raring to go another round, young gun. He didn't have to.

Drama unfolded thick and fast on from the 16th - Branden Grace hit one out of bounds on the 16th and Spieth made an tough birdie to take a 3-shot lead (at 6-under). That's was it. Yet Spieth stumbles (a 3-putt) on the 17th with a double bogey. Oosthuizen was in the clubhouse at -4. He was watching the TV as Spieth fires a 3-wood onto the 18th green for an eagle putt no more than 15-feet while Johnson birdied the 17th. Spieth missed his chance at putting everyone out of their misery. Johnson still had chance, a very good chance in fact. It hit an iron into 18th, within 12-feet of the hole. Did he choke? No, after the missing the eagle putt the roller coaster ride was just too much.

Chambers Bay looked just spectacular, instagram picture below by Luke Donald on the 6th hole.

Dare we say it, we miss Tiger Woods. Now, wouldn't it be exciting to see the player of our generation to win just one more golf major. Forget Jack Nicklaus' record, Tiger is already a legend. We just want a proper ending. Tiger Tracker....

March 2015

Best lesson in golf...how to throw a golf club like a pro? Seriously it will improve your golf swing, courtesy of Rory McIlroy  in the 2nd round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. We guessed the Blue Monster got the better of him.

Here is a breakdown of the perfect swing...

McIlroy1

Couldn't he just threw it like the amateurs, up and over the head. How deep is the lake? It would be great for a fan to recover it and hang McIlroy's 3-iron on his wall, the one that got away.

 

2015 in Golf (Vintage year?, somewhat the excitement came later in the year)

It started sort of a run of the mill year, the story unfolded slowly.

 

No shows

Everyone at the start of the year expected Henrik Stenson to continue his blitz from end 2013 but it didn’t happen that way. The 10 million dollar man with the robotic powerful strokes that seems to hit through the ball more than any golfer manage only a so-so year.

Bubba Watson second win at the Masters came without any major challenges on Sunday.

Tiger Woods worst year, yes?

Who? Billy Horschel, he is coming here in KL for the CIMB classic. (we had to be reminded by the billboards) Not to take any credit away but really a dark horse or Trojan horse that came up with a mathematical win for the Fedex playoffs. How many years have they shown us the possibility in numbers for others to wrestle the top spot from the leader who usually way ahead in points with two or more major wins? Never happened until now.

 

Fireworks

Those in the golfing age (in your forties) would remember the 80's movie Young Guns, and in 2014 we had many young guns or those likely to wear “Under Amour”

– Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Lydia Ko, Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie and Rory McIlroy (over the hill by young gun standards)

We have quick draw Patrick Reed with his declaration “I should be in the top five”, 23-years young, confident and brash but golf does that you when you think you have found the elusive key to the swing.

There is the cool, calm and collected can't do know wrong 21-year old Jordan Spieth and sharp shooter 19-year old Kraft Nabisco Championship major winner Lexi Thompson.

Get out of here, did you say 17? It is the rookie but deadly Lydia Ko, her first year as a pro.

The original young gun Michelle Wie who at age 10 qualified for USGA Amateur Championship and finally redemption with US Open success at 25years.

Finally the posse would not be complete without the biggest gun of all,  Rory McIlroy at 25 years old.

 

More Fireworks

We had the most exciting Players Championship in recent years thanks to Martin Kaymer. He looked like a choker during the finishing holes after a rain delay. Leading by 3-strokes when play resumed he immediately double bogeyed the 15th. He was bumbling away like Mr. Bean through the par 5 16th and look like unraveling when the ball was in the air crossing the water(or not) on the 17th. What saved him? The krazy super lucky tee shot that spun off green but didn't go into the water or the equally krazy breaking monster par putt? Saved him the US Open crown too.

Michelle Wie not defeated by hype, winning her first major after all the hype over the years, it is nice to see her being able to see past all of that.

Of course it is McIlroy’s year, super drives, fluid, fast, crisp and sharp hits. Not the runaway leads like yester-Tiger but eagle on demand just the same. Back to back majors British Open and PGA Championship in sterling fashion.

 

At the local scene in 2015

Lee Westwood – Maybank Malaysian Open champion.

Shanshan Feng - winner of the "Women with Drive" Sime Darby LPGA.

Ryan Moore – living up to the tagline “Back for Moore” (what are advertisers to write for 2015, “Back for Good”?, CIMB Classic winner again on a Monday again)

 

 

April 2015

Kraft Nabisco Championship. Can you spot the differences in the pictures below?

It starts with a little sprinkle of miracle (aka mineral) water in hot Malaysia and ends in a bath robe in a major championship. As good feng shui goes some water leads to more water, for Lexi Thompson in the form of a lake. Inbee Park kicks of an incredible 2013 season with a win in the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in 2012. Similarly it work wonders for Lexi Thompson to win in Malaysia in Oct 2013 and then six months later at the major Kraft Nabisco Championship she gets to jump into the lake. Dare we say it the Sime Darby LPGA event is precursor to bigger events and not to be missed.

Solheim Cup

Congratulations to Europe on their record (by the biggest margin) and first ever win over the Americans playing away.

But what’s the Solheim Cup without top players? Did anyone interview Inbee Park or Na Yeon Choi what they thought about the Solhiem Cup?

Take a look at the players come that make the US and European teams based on the Rolex World Rankings.

Take the world’s top twenty women golfers and you only get 5 players on the US team and 3 on the European team. And the US team needed to call on Michelle Wie ranked 87th (not to pile on more pressure on Wie) shows that US/ Europe talent may be in limited supply.

If you take the other players in the top 20 from Korea, Japan, China/Taiwan, Australian and NZ you have huge talent to form another more compelling 12-player team.

 

Description: TPEDescription: CHNDescription: KORDescription: JPNDescription: AUSDescription: NZLDescription: THADescription: D:\Loke\GLinkRTFR\Website Content\Articles\Far East.jpg

Re-shuffle the teams a bit……throw in a captain’s pick in the form Thai Ariya Jutanugarn and you have diverse players from more than half dozen different countries as in Europe. You will have a multi-language team and a 16-year old amateur as well that will make pairings interesting.

Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan has a lot of goodwill to build between them and Oz & NZ need to join their neighbours of the same time zone, and what is a more exciting way to do it.

And finally have them play the USA & Europe combined you will have more excitement than the Ryder Cup. (Charley Hull should get the captain’s pick)

Welcome to the Far East Invitational Cup, where team Asia-Pacific All-Stars take on Team Eumerica.
