What would we give for Mcilroy to be playing for Britain!

The first Match Play event of the season took place last week at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco with the world’s top 64 players competing for the WGC-Cadillac Match Play title.

It seems even if the Brits had played out of their skin this week, a certain Northern Irishman, in the shape of Rory Mcilroy would have still found a way to beat them. Continue reading What would we give for Mcilroy to be playing for Britain!

Two Toms on Tour score well in China

Tommy Fleetwood and Tom Lewis both finished in season best positions, at the Shenzhen International at Genzon GC.

Fleetwood, who may feel a good round has come too late for him, finished in third place shooting 12-under, a shot behind the two leaders who were split by a playoff hole.

Lewis, who has not featured much this season, finished a shot behind his name-sake in fourth position sharing it with fellow Briton David Howell and five other players all on 11-under par.

Finally back to winning ways

Richie Ramsey became the first Scot to win on the European Tour this season at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco this week, getting the Brits back to winning ways after several disappointing weeks.

With four British players in the final five tee times on Sunday, including two Scots it looked promising that we would have a winner from the home countries once again.

Certain Brits need a really good week

With the Masters in 2 weeks time, players get their first big chance to leap up the world rankings pushing further for spots at the Olympics next summer. However, players who have had a decent season so far may not get their chance to prove themselves on the big stage at Augusta.

It seems the Brits can’t mix with the big boys at the top

In a week that produced the 18th different winner through 21 tournaments this season on the PGA Tour,a British player is yet to win, not looking a promising season for Great Britain.

The PGA Tour took place through the Arnold Palmer Invitational, at Bay Hill Club & Lodge this week and it was another disappointing week for the British following.

British golfers will be glad to be out of South Africa

I may be picking at straws here but in a disappointing weekend for the British golfers, David Horsey seemed keen to keep the theme of the week going putting himself at the top of the leaderboard after the first day in Pretoria.

His second day was not so strong, but he and fellow Brit Craig Lee, were in a six-way tie for the lead going into Sunday on nine-under.  Neither could push on further on the last day, with Lee shooting level-par and Horsey carding a round of plus-three with five bogeys and a double bogey.

Brits fail to challenge the top players in Miami

In the first World Golf Championship of the year, Britain’s players did not fill us with hope for when they are put against the rest of the world in next year’s Olympic games.

With each of the world’s top 50 players in action at the Cadillac Championship, the best British players were tied 12th in Lee Westwood and, Race to Dubai leader, Danny Willett, which does not bode well for Rio next summer.

An Englishman in contention again in South Africa

In the European tour this week, Matt Ford went into the last day two shots behind the leader, leading the way for the British players at East London GC, South Africa.

Ford makes it three Englishmen in three weeks to be in the last group on the last day.

He could not have expected what happened on the last day thought, with South African Trevor Fisher Jnr hitting at round of eight-under-par under pressure from the rest of the field, which hosted a whole number of Brits this week.
