NATHAN GREEN FIVE OFF THE PACE AT AUSTRALIAN PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

Just three players from the Hunter made the cut at the Australian PGA Championship, with Toronto’s Nathan Green still the pick of the bunch. Following a first round 75, Nick Flanagan continues to climb the leaderboard, now up to equal 12th. Green started the day three off the lead, but his opening tee shot wasn’t his best. “Wow you don’t see that too often with these modern drivers, they’re almost idiot proof.” He recovered to claim par on the first, but dropped shots on the second and the fourth left him five shots off the pace.

JAMES NITTIES FINISHES EQUAL 12TH IN PERTH

South Korea’s Jin Jeong has taken out the $2-million Perth International following a playoff. Opening round leader, James Nitties, saved his worst for last. Set to turn 31 this week, this putt was a rare highlight. “That looks very very good from James Nitties, perhaps an early birthday present.” Before today, Nitties had the least amount of putts at the tournament, but that form deserted him when it mattered most, as he dropped back to finish equal 12th.

ONIONS LEAVES RIVALS IN TEARS AT MEREWETHER

Just a day after finishing second in the Maitland Pro Am, John Onions is the king of Merewether. The Sydney golfer scored a one-shot win in today’s tournament, edging out Scott Davis and Brendan Smith. Defending champion, Ed Stedman, was looking good early on, draining this birdie putt on the eighth. It was a similar story for Smith, he grabbed birdie on 17 on his way to a round of 67. Rudi Beizudenhout didn’t have much luck in his round of 78… Toronto professional Darren Green also finished over the card. Merewether pro Peter Johnston just missed out on the top five. Read More »

GREEN AND FLANAGAN WITH PLENTY OF WORK TO DO

Hunter golfers Nathan Green and Nick Flanagan face an uphill battle, if they’re going to earn a place on next year’s PGA Tour. Both players missed the cut at this week’s Chiquita Classic and now sit well outside the top 50 with two events left to play. For Flanagan, the disappointment was compounded by the fact he was one of the leading players after round one. His opening score of 72 included three birdies and an eagle on 18. Unfortunately his second round 77 saw him miss the cut. The second tier finals continue on Thursday at the Nationwide Championship. Read More »

NITTIES IN THE HUNT ON GOLF’S SECOND TIER TOUR IN THE USA

James Nitties is on track for just his second top 25 finish this year on the Web.com Tour in the US. Fellow Hunter golfers Nathan Green and Nick Flanagan failed to make the cut, while Nitties sits five shots off top spot. The Australian looked like making a charge up the leaderboard on the back nine, setting up another birdie putt on 15. Nitties once again proved to be his harshest critic, despite a decent tee shot on 16. In the end this miss on 18 cost him a shot, as he heads into the final day at six under. Read More »
