The 2009 Australian Open rolls around this week at New South Wales Golf Club. Your favourite news services will no doubt be bringing you all the action and Aussie Golfer
will also be amongst it all week in attempt to give you a slightly different look at Australia’s oldest national tournament.
Australian Open media centre. Here is where all the stories will break this week while Caddyshack is played on the big screen.
I popped down to the course today and had a look around the media centre where all your trusted news services (and some that report on the latest with Tiger Woods) will be firing off the latest scores and reports. The place runs like clockwork and the player interview area is all set for the first press conferences starting with John Daly tomorrow morning. (He was on course early this morning – video)
Press conference area ready for the arrival of John Daly, Marc Leishman, Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott.
While I was getting my first look of the facilities, players getting their first look of the NSW Golf Course were sent scurrying back to the club house as the first serious rains to hit Sydney in weeks hit. It is absolute perfect timing. Though lush and looking superb, the course will be even better for these rains and with fine, warm conditions forecast for the weekend.
I’ll be blogging each day from the Open and you can follow any live news via the Aussie Golfer Twitter feed. Come to think of it, John Daly on Twitter will no doubt be giving updates too.
