Australasia PGA Tour - Daniel Chopra

Postby BSharma » Sun Dec 05, 2004 7:22 am

The last tournament of the year for Daniel is The 2004 MasterCard Masters, which will be held at Huntingdale Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia from 9th - 12th December.

It will be a great way for him to finish his season with a victory.

Australasia PGA Tour - Daniel Chopra

Postby BSharma » Mon Dec 06, 2004 2:20 am

I heard from dan's wife (Sam) and Daniel was very tired on the first day of the Australian PGA tournament and did not have a good round. He felt better on the next three days and his scores improved. He missed about 5 birdies on the last day and if he had made some of them he could have finished higher. He feels more comfortable on the golf course than earlier, and one of the points that top golfers like Vijay, Tiger, etc say is that to win a PGA tournament you have to feel that you belong in that group.

Bad weather has stopped the play at the 2004 MasterCard Masters but Daniel was able to finish his first round today. He had four birdies and two bogeys for a 2 under par round.

Robert Allenby had a round of 66 (-6), Corey Pavin is at -4, Hunter Mahan (-3), Geoff Ogilvy (-3). Stuart Appleby (-1 after 11 holes) and Adam Scott (+1 after 11 holes) have not yet finished their rounds.

2004 MasterCard Masters - second day

Postby BSharma » Fri Dec 10, 2004 4:59 pm

Daniel slipped down the leaderboard on the second day but made the cut. Hopefully he will have enough strength left in him to play the last two days of the tournament and have a good showing. He must be one tired golfer after playing in so many events in 2004.

2004 MasterCard Masters - third day

Postby BSharma » Sat Dec 11, 2004 6:26 am

Daniel had another par round of 72. I think that tiredness is taking its toll on Daniel. He will be happy to go home and rest for about three weeks.

This news has nothing to do with Indian players but since this forum is big in tennis, I will share a news item about tennis and golf.

Former Australian Davis Cup player Scott Draper finished 12th in a field of 80 on Friday and was one of 37 golfers to gain his playing card for the Australasian Tour for 2005.

WOW ... Remarkable ... Scott Draper spends lots of time in Top 50, but couldn't rise to the Top 10 ... Wishing him goodluck for his Golfing career.

Like last year, Daniel is once again playing in Australian tour in these closing months of the year. Daniel finished first round at even par and he is T38th at MFS Australian Open Championship. The leaderboard is led by Robert Allenby as he played a superb first round of 9 under par.
