Asian Golf Awards – The Benchmark To Be Measured By!
Kisner Is King Of The Hill!
After playing brides-maid to Bubba Watson at the 2018 WGC Dell Technologies Match, Kevin Kisner (pictured) came charging back to lay his claim to victory at this year’s final.
The otherwise colourless and low-profile American (seeded 48th to win), slam-dunked three birdies to win the title against another American, Matt Kuchar.
Kisner played a very consistent game by landing his drives on the fairway and although he is not regarded as a long hitter, managed to out play and out strategize Kuchar who is by far a big hitter.
It was safe play that guaranteed Kisner to beat Kuchar by a score of 3-2 to go home with the win.
In the semi-finals Kisner took down Italian super-star Francesco Molinari who went on to finish in third place by beating Denmark’s Lucas Bjerregaard.Read More
“Beast From The East” Is Conquered!
There’s no denying that the DLF Golf Course in Gurugram, India, has rightfully claimed its place to be ranked amongst the most treacherous golf courses in the world.
Throughout the past four days, the Gary Player designed golf course showed its dark side by bearing its teeth and repeatedly dashing the hopes of golfers who were gunning for glory at the Hero Indian Open.
Perhaps the golfer who took the most severe and painful beating at was Julian Suri, the American of Indian descent. From day one, he held the lead for a number of times. However, on the final day, after having led at 10-under par, the beast struck and brought him down.
Eventually, the unfancied Scotsman Stephen Gallacher (pictured) emerged to become the man to slay the “Beast from the East” and win his first European Tour title in five years. The 44-year old had his son on the bag and it was an emotional win for the former Ryder Cup player.
The Scot had shared the first round lead but a second round 74 saw him slip back and his chances looked doomed when he made a quadruple bogey eight on the seventh hole in the final round.
A closing 71 moved Gallacher to 9-under par and gave him a one shot win over Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura, with Spaniard Jorge Campillo a further shot back.
Suri finished alongside South African Christiaan Bezuidenhout at 6-under par.
