Matt carded a first round -7 under par 64 to lead the British Masters, a tournament supported by Sky Sports. He was obviously very happy with the outcome;

“It doesn’t get better than that. This is the first day and the crowds have been absolutely fantastic.”

“Tee to green, it is pretty tough you if you don’t hit in the fairway.” 

“The rough isn’t deep but it’s quite wet so it clings to the face and it’s difficult to get it the normal distance of your irons. It’s a test all round but tee to green it’s been tough.”

“It was a tough start. I missed quite a few cuts in a row at the start of the year, even though I felt I was playing all right.”

“Now I’ve been playing decent and getting the right results that I’ve been looking for.

“I’ve been getting so much experience just week-to-week learning more about myself, tournaments everything and that’s been the biggest thing.”

There are four players tied in second place at -6 under par after their opening rounds of 65, Robert KarlssonMarc Warren, Søren Kjeldsen and Lee Slattery.

Ian Poulter is hosting this week’s tournament,  at the club he’s represented since 2002, he was worried that something would go wrong;

“I didn’t know what to expect coming into the week, this is a first.”

“I’ve got big responsibilities, lots of things to do, lots of commitments. You have to manage those, but you can have a buzz on that first tee because you’ve spent a bit of time. You care about it.”

“I haven’t had that feeling in a long time, it was literally two minutes before teeing off.”

“It’s just like, all right, okay, just an easy 3-wood up the middle. I’ve really got to concentrate now because I need to. The fairway just shrinks a lot and that’s good. It makes you focus. It’s nice to have that feeling, especially on a Thursday.”

“All in all, 3 under par is a decent start, especially with a couple of putts that felt like they were dropping and edged out.”

 “A little lapse of concentration just as I was settling into the round of golf was a shame. Apart from that, a couple of shots and all of a sudden it’s a different round of golf.”

Alison, who had a first round -6 under par 65 to share the lead  at the Sime Derby LPGA Malaysia tournament with Xi Yu Lin, who is from China.

Alison has to struggle with school work as well as playing golf;

“Right after Solheim I took one day off and started school right away and did my apartment and bought books and went to class, did rush.”

“Yeah, I don’t know how I’m sitting here right now. I don’t know how I survived, but I did it somehow. I feel like it’s all a great experience.”

“I love still being in school and seeing all my friends back at school. I haven’t seen a lot of them since March because I took the spring quarter off, so it was nice to see all of them and friendly faces.”

“I feel like that’s what keeps me going, just seeing a lot of friendly faces and having a great atmosphere and support base supporting me back home.”

Xi Yu is comfortable playing on this course at the  Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club;

“Well, this is my second year playing this tournament, and last year I was sick first two rounds so I didn’t play very well.”

“Last year I finished pretty good, so I know I can play well on this course. I’m happy.”

There are four ladies tied in third place, all just one shot back at -5 under par after their opening rounds of 66, Yani Tseng, Chella Choi, Shanshan Feng and Michelle Wie.

World number one Lydia Ko started with an even par round 71, and has a bit of work to do tomorrow if she wants to contest this title.

Saying No to the PGA 2016 Tour Card, Is It Mistake?

White Dragon GolfWhite Dragon Golf

Danny Willet, from England, has turned down the offer from the PGA Tour to play on their tour for 2016. To me this seems like a huge gamble, Danny had this to say at his interview;

“We weren’t willing to up and move straight away and move everything over there just yet.”

“I think if you want to play in America and play well, you’ve got to be willing to up ship and go and do it full time.”

“That didn’t quite fit with what we’re trying to do. It wasn’t quite the right time for everything.”

“It’s about trying to get ourselves really bedded down, settled in and try and win a few more times and trying to compete more in the majors.”

“Hopefully we’ll have that same chance next year and we’ll see where we are. I’m still early in my career. I’ve got a long time left.” 

Danny is ranked No. 25 in the world, at the moment, but wants to concentrate on the  European Tour next year. This year he finished in third place at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, tied 6th in the Open Championship at St. Andrews, and in the process earning more than $1.26 million on the PGA Tour this season and qualified for the  PGA Tour 2016 by finishing inside the top 125 in the FedEx Cup.

I guess we will revisit this story this time next year, and see where Danny is at.

The Worlds Best Putter.

White Dragon Golf

The White Dragon putter is making life happy for many golfers, especially for those who have been struggling to get the ball in hole.

This is a letter we received recently from a customer who had a magical putting performance on his very first round with a White Dragon putter;

Hi Pete,
Terry Tacon here, just reporting in what happened when I took the White Dragon putter out for my first game with it. After missing golf for a fortnight because of rain-outs here in Wairarapa, Carterton members went to Manor Park on Tuesday. The putter was everything I had dreamed it would be and produced eight pars for me on my way to an 85, six shots under my handicap. Don’t need to say any more, except thanks for getting my game back on track.
Regards, Terry

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Thorbjørn Olesen Takes The Trophy.

White Dragon Golf

Thorbjørn Olesen from Denmark, takes the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship trophy at St Andrews in Scotland.

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

Thorbjørn won his third European Tour trophy at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, with a final round -1 under par 71, and a tournament total of -18 under par, a two shot victory. This Is the second Danish victory of the 2015 season, along with Søren Kjeldsen who won the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open;

“This is very special.”

“It’s been a very tough year and to stand here with this trophy, especially to win it at St. Andrews.”

“It’s something you dream of when you’re a little kid. So I’m very emotional.”

“I was very patient out there. I made a lot of pars.”

“The conditions were quite tricky because it was very cold, and a little breeze also. I just kept on being patient.”

Two Americans shared second place at -16 under par, Brooks Koepka and Chris Stroud.

Brooks with a last round -5 under par 67, and Chris -4 under 68.

Best round of the day went to Chris Wood who carded a final round -7 under par 65, which moved him up into a tie for fourth place with, Bernd Wiesberger, Benjamin Herbert, Joakim Largergren and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, all at -15 under par.

Thorbjørn will take a  three shot lead into the final round of the  Alfred Dunhill Links Championship after shooting -7 under par 65 at St Andrews to post a total -17 under par.

He gave credit to a hot putter, and a great deal of practice;

“My putter started to get very hot out there and I holed a lot of great putts. So yeah, it was good fun.”

“To be honest it’s been very tough this season with an injury, also, and playing some bad golf. But I’ve been finding my way and just practicing hard and just hoping for it to come along at some point.”

“There have been some good rounds, but I just haven’t been able to really do it for all four rounds. But yeah, hopefully I can do it this week. It’s definitely nice to be up there on the leaderboard.”

“We will see how the weather is tomorrow but if it’s the same, there’s definitely going to be a lot of birdies. I’ll just have to try to keep up and go out there and hopefully find a few birdies.”

“It’s always difficult to go into the last day with a lead. It’s definitely a nice position to be in, and you know you can shoot a good score around this golf course if the weather is nice.”

“It’s definitely not going to be easy but I’m going to go out there tomorrow and try my best.”

Florian Fritsch is in second place, at -14 under par, three shots back. Florian shot -8 under par 64 at Kingsbarns, and reported that he was worried about making the cut at the start;

 “At the beginning I was probably a bit more worried about maybe making the cut because this is a very big tournament, especially for me with the money that can be won and the position that I’m in, so this is definitely something that was kind of important to me.”

“A couple of choices were made due to that situation over what I would probably usually do but that’s what tournament golf does to you at times. I got more and more comfortable towards the end.”

“On the back nine I felt like I had a little bit more control. The golf course is very open. You can’t really lose a ball and that is definitely something that I enjoy and I guess most golfers like.”

“It loosens you up despite the situation. I hit a couple of good putts and ended up rolling in a few birdies and an eagle. That was a little extra.”

In third place is Benjamin Hebert, who finished day three on -13 under par after mixing six birdies with a single bogey at Carnoustie​ and scoring -5 under par 67.

Jimmy Mullen, who held a share of the halfway lead, could only manage a two over par 74 to fall to -9 under, while Anthony Wall stumble to a +1 over par 73 , both players were at Carnoustie.

Tomorrow everyone will play their final round at St Andrews, and Thorbjørn must be looking forward to it, and hopefully another 65 will give him the trophy.
