European Tour - 2019

Post by GPB on Mon 14 Jan 2019, 6:56 pm

New Year, Time for a New Thread.

EuroTour makes it 2019 Debut this week with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Classic Presented by EGA.  Next week is Dubai and the following week is the New Saudi Event

Guessing that the EGA Presentation got Abu Dhabi a promotion to a Rolex Series event.


DJ and BK are playing in Abu Dhabi.  So is Fleetwood, Stenson, Oosthuizen, RCB, Barnrat, Poulter, and Oleson

Despite the the Hired Guns from USA and Rolex Promotion, Abu Dhabi will have its lowest OWGR rating in 10 yrs.  Pelley can't be happy about that.

What is a garbage dump doing on the Abu Dhabi golf course?

ET reckons Lowry is the first golfer to shoot 62 or less whilst "having hit fewer than five fairways", since records have been kept anyway.
Bet it's happened a few times on the PGA Tour, eh Phil, Tiger?

Love the ET video about content committee. Eddie P has mastered the David Brent look to camera.

Call it a stepping stone, but its videos are first class.

Certainly 100x better than the awful "golf-boyz".

Just seen an interesting occurence (for me) in the Abu Dhabi Championship. Ian Poulter in a bit of trouble on the 16th. Eventually got near the green but his route was interfered with by some sort of TV/Satellite mast. Poulter asked for referee ruling. Refereee gave him relief + club length. This was presumably being watched by someone from ET and more senior referee turns up and says mast was moveable and tells Poulter to put his ball back. Mast placed on ground and Poulter makes triple bogey. Interesting that one referee (obviously more senior) can overrrule another. Wondered what would have happened if Poulter had played a shot after getting relief but before other referee turned up?

Right or wrong, the referee's on-course decision is always correct, so players can't be penalised for an error by the referee. So if he hurried up and played, then he would have been in the clear even when the senior guy turned up.

Good that Poults rescued a birdie at the last, and great that Lowry strung together four great shots when he needed them most. clap guinness guinness (Probably not enough).

Huge win for Shane Lowry. I don't think I've ever seen a player make more 2's on par-3s than Shane did this week. He had nine birdies on the par-3's thru 3 rounds, and added 2 more today. He bogeyed one par-3 for the week, but that's still 10-under on the 16 par-3's. 2.375 stroke average on them for the week. Amazing.
