Pom and Har­wood: Un­fin­ished busi­ness

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - NEWS -

Long time Aus­tralian

Pro­fes­sion­als Peter O'Malley and Mike Har­wood looked to at­tend to un­fin­ished busi­ness at last month's Paris Leg­ends event which was held at the 2018 Ry­der Cup venue, Le Golf Na­tional.

The course played very tight at last year's event but both Euro­pean Senior Tour reg­u­lars were hurt by en­dur­ing mul­ti­ple dou­ble bo­geys over the 54 holes last year.

Pro­fes­sion­als at every level hate drop­ping mul­ti­ple shots on any hole and pride will likely be a driv­ing fac­tor for both O'Malley and Har­wood when play gets un­der­way.

Even Aus­tralia's (ac­tu­ally he lives in Re­muera!) top fin­isher last year, Peter Fowler, had a dou­ble on his card in round one though re­cov­ered nicely on his way to a T6 fin­ish.

Fowler is once again the stand­out Aus­tralasian on the over 50's cir­cuit in Europe and cur­rently lies fourth on the 2017 Or­der of Merit.

He has fin­ished in the top five at each of his last three starts in­clud­ing a run­ner-up re­sult at the Ital­ian Senior Open two weeks ago.

Fowler will again be among the favourites at this event though big hit­ting Amer­i­can crowd favourite John Daly will likely grab the bulk of fan and me­dia at­ten­tion.
