BEST v THE REST

Sunday Herald Sun - - Front Page -

THE ob­vi­ous up­side of the Pres­i­dents Cup re­turn­ing to Mel­bourne is we get to see the best golfers in the world.

The down­side is most of those golfers will be play­ing for the US team, and not the hap­less In­ter­na­tion­als.

The In­ter­na­tion­als, or In­terSpuds as they should be known given they’ve won just one of 12 com­pe­ti­tions, can boast just (13) and

(19) cur­rently ranked in the world top 20.

Given 12 play­ers are re­quired for each team un­der the Pres­i­dents Cup for­mat, the US can se­lect from the fol­low­ing: (1);

(3); (4); (9); (5); (10); (11); (15); (17); and (14); (16);

(18). Or the win­ners of 24 ma­jors and 138 US PGA tour events in to­tal.

As for the In­terSpuds, they’ve bagged three ma­jors and 39 US PGA tour wins.

By way of fur­ther com­par­i­son, the Euro­pean Ry­der Cup team has six play­ers cur­rently ranked in the world top 20. ON the sub­ject of sport­ing ra­dio move­ment in 2019, 1985 Brown­low medal­list is said to have im­pressed with his foot­ball chat at Mac­quarie Sports.

Cur­rently part of the break­fast team, could Hardie be mov­ing to the morn­ing slot in 2019, pos­si­bly be­tween 9-11am with a lo­cal pro­duc­tion that will be heav­ily AFL-based? WHILE no for­mal an­nounce­ment has been made, ex­pect Na­tional Indige­nous Ra­dio Ser­vice to con­tinue into a 22nd sea­son. There were ini­tial con­cerns that a lack of AFL fund­ing could see the valu­able com­mod­ity pull up stumps from pro­vid­ing a weekly AFL ser­vice to all indige­nous and com­mu­nity-li­censed ra­dio sta­tions across the na­tion.
