time for a career change.....
« on: November 23, 2006, 03:36:39 PM »

It's day two of the Australian Masters Golf, MastercardMasters.com where the winner gets to take home a lovley Gold Jacket. (and a free bowl of soup)

Round 1 action saw Jon Abbott open with a sizzling 96.  He's set to tee it up for round two later today, although I'm tipping he might 'withdraw'. If I was a 'Pro' and I shot 96 and don't think I'd be game to show my face on a golf course ever. Would you take a lesson from this guy??

Infact I'd say it's time to give it away and do something that you can actually do..... well. I'd suggest he'd earn more money on Unemployment benefits.

I'll be following his progress today.. to see if he can maybe break 90. Grin

"Golf gods take winner back to wilderness"

HUNTINGDALE yielded to some of the world's best professional golfers in benign conditions yesterday, but the course inflicted just a little pain. Or, in the case of rookie Victorian professional Jon Abbott, a great deal of agony.

Abbott began his day with a birdie at the par-five 10th and rolled in a long birdie putt at the ninth hole, his last. But in between, he walked into the sort of nightmare that every golfer has witnessed.

Abbott carded a 96, 24 over par, to be 32 shots off the lead on the opening day of the $1.5 million Australian Masters. He took a 10 on the par-five seventh and a nine on the par-five 14th, finishing with only two pars.

Shattered afterwards, he signed for a 95 when his score added up to 96, and exposed himself to the possibility of disqualification under golf's rules. The scorers amended his card upward by a shot and chose to let the error pass, a tour official explaining that a player who makes an arithmetical error on his card is not subjected to penalty so long as the scores for individual holes are correct.

Abbott is no hacker. He was a member of the Victorian amateur team last year and, having turned professional, won the Vanuatu Open at Port Vila in July, pocketing $40,000 in prizemoney. He was also fourth in the West Australian PGA Championship and made the cut at the Queensland Open.

"I've just lost it," he said of his game. "First year out (of amateurs) I've had a pretty good year."

Asked when he lost his swing, he said: "Two days ago. I don't want to hit the ball. It's pretty much going right, every shot."

Coached by Richard Cooney, Abbott knew before the tournament he was in trouble. Asked whether he would head to the driving range, he said: "(I'll) hang the boots up maybe. I don't reckon I've ever shot 95 before. It just went."

 Shocked

not sure... I know the course pretty well, and the OB is pretty hard to get to. I don't have vision right now, just his scores. after yesterdays round he just said... he lost his swing... i suspect know he's got the yips and is probably just flubbing it
