In the tradition of the new referral system, let’s take a look at the Australian golfers on the European Tour this year with some traffic signals.
Green means they will win and make a big impact. Amber means it’s possible with some reservations and red….no chance.
Scott Strange, Brett Rumford
These two guys are underrated. Scott Strange battles away and has two wins on the tour with four top-10s last year. Brett Rumford has three European Tour wins and may be slightly disturbed by his time in Australia, notably at the gusty Australian Open but he’ll come back strong. Both these guys are very strong mentally and will win again.
Richard Green, Scott Hend,
We’ve all seen the sort of golf Richard Green is capable off with some great victories over the years. He’s very consistent but had an ordinary 2009 by his standards. Scott Hend has played all over the world and never quite pushed to the next level. Some Australian form shows he’s on the right track but only time will tell.
Marcus Fraser, Peter O’Malley, Andrew Tampion, Matthew Zions
Marcus Fraser and Peter O’Malley have been true “journeymen” in Australian golf. Fraser’s form is inconsistent and its no secret that Captain Caveman putts better than O’Malley. All these guys will struggle on tour this year.
