Adam Scott and Boo Weekley were in the media centre today in the lead up to the 2014 BetEasy Australian Masters.
Scott sounds reasonably confident of doing something no one else, not even Greg Norman managed to do before – win three consecutive Australia Masters titles.
You may know Boo Weekley as that guy who did the crazy horse riding celebration with a golf club at the 2008 Ryder Cup. The outspoken, but very laid-back American is in Australia thanks largely to the invitation from his good friend Steven Bowditch.
Both, (aside from being fellow golfers on the US PGA Tour) are hunting buddies and it sounds like Weekely is keen to do a bit of that while he is down in Australia.
Trust us. This press conference is worth a listen.
2014 Australian Masters: Boo Weekley press conference audio
Weekley on Australia:
I mean, this is my first time ever visiting over here and it seems like everybody has the same demeanour that he does, everything just happens, let it go. It’s almost like a rain hitting on a jacket, just running right off of you. It’s kind of cool to be able to say that. Like I’ll get frustrated driving in traffic and he’s sitting over there, “Don’t worry about it, Mate. Just take your time, we ain’t in no hurry.”
Weekley on his golf game:
It’s just golf, man. They can’t kill you and eat you out here. It’s just, whether I shoot a hundred or if I shoot 50, still going to be golf one way or the other. I’m going to go out and play the best I can play. I don’t think about it as I’m over here in Australia playing golf as I am sitting at my house playing golf with my buddies drinking beer. It’s all the same, just golf.
