According to an Australian newspaper, the International players felt too many spectators cheered for the U.S. team and not enough were vocal in their support of Stuart Appleby, Adam Scott and the like. Maybe that’s because Adam Scott couldn’t hit a two foot putt…
“We need not be afraid of sending it down south, because that is an advantage for us,” said Australian Adam Scott.
Only if Scott’s putting and driving is changed by being in the southern hemisphere…
“The Americans need to get outside their comfort zone for us to do well,” Scott added. The International players sometimes wondered if they were really playing a home game in the past four days at Royal Montreal, near the US border. The galleries cheered for Americans Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson sometimes with greater fervour than the Internationals.
Like they didn’t cheer for Mike Weir. Maybe Canadians just wanted to cheer for good golf, something that was in short supply on the International side. I guess Australians will cheer for Scott’s leaky driver and balky putter….
Now Vijay Singh also suggested in the article that the best place for the event would be South Africa or Australia. Knowing the rumors of Singh’s interest in, well for lack of a better term, nightlife, I’m surprised the big man from Fiji didn’t
find love have fun on St. Laurent.
