August is officially “golf month”. After the 40/1 triumph of Justin Thomas for blog followers in last week’s US PGA, lightning struck twice in this week’s Paul Lawrie Matchplay.
We were sweet on the chances of Spanish youngster Adrian Otaegui (“European Golf: What a guy, Otaegui”) and he duly triumphed to reward subscribers.
The Jose Maria Olazabal protege looked much like his mentor when dominating his matches all the way to the final. Then we saw a glimpse of a Ryder Cup future when he fought back from 3 down at the turn against local crowd favourite Marcel Siem by shooting a 6 birdie blitz in 8 holes to triumph on the 17th.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this starlet through the Autumn programme.
And now we enter FedEx playoff season…..stay tuned as we aim to stay hot off the tee.
