One last time for the season for Tour Insider!
TI would like to congratulate Belgium on the World Cup win last week. As a passionate Aussie I wouldn't have tipped them but the Belgium boys swing it well and deserved their win. Handling the weather on Friday going a long way to a great win.
Cam Smith - If he displays last week’s form he just wins. TI has admired his media work the last couple of week’s and thinks Aussie fans will grow to love this bloke the more of him they see and here.
John Senden - Has had a number of chances in the past more so at Coolum to meet Joe Kirkwood but has just come up short. The recent health battles of son Jacob has given him a new perspective and he seems very relaxed and could easily fire this week.
Jason Scrivener - One of Ti’s favourites but I haven’t seen him much this year. Played well in Hong Kong last week (on a course he loves) but should be able to carry that form through. Broke through for his first win last year and would not surprise to see him hoist another trophy.
Harold Varner III - Seems to love the course and was his usual jovial self when TI ran into the man earlier this week. He is a PGA Tour player and past winner so must be respected. TI needs to be honest and say he would prefer a local winner but Harry would be a popular winner again.
Cam Davis - Such a talent and fans should get out and watch this bloke hit a golf ball. A super ball striker and with the pressure off this week (not defending) he is a real chance to win again.
TI would like to wish all players well as they fight to win the Order of Merit, grab status for next year and win a big cheque to buy the Christmas gifts!
