Golf Australia Express : GA Express 224
INTERNATIONALS TO TEST USA AND then there’s Hideki Matsuyama. We mused late last year that the 25-year- old had rotten timing – if he was in his year- ending form when there were majors to be won, he’d almost certainly have grabbed at least one of the big four. With a form linethatread5,1,2,1,1,1toroundoutthe year, he was in rare air. The question was whether he could carry it into 2017, but after just one event (a second-place finish at the Tournament of Champions) we already have our answer. Matsuyama is only 24, Tiger Woods says he’s built to go the distance, and if his form holds for just a few more months he’ll be a major champion. Can’t wait to watch him. AS MUCH as it hurts to admit it, the Presidents Cup hasn’t been international golf’s finest hour for most of its 11 iterations. With only one win and a tie – both well over a decade ago – the International team would probably prefer to forget its previous attempts at toppling the United States. But the 2015 event brought hope, with the Internationals coming within a point of finally having some success, and that was despite current world No.1 Jason Day scrounging just half a point from his five matches. With much of the International cast likely to be back again – Day, Adam Scott, Hideki Matsuyama, Branden Grace and Charl Schwartzel – if ever there was a year our boys might just be able to do the deed, this is it.
