Putting Madness brings Justin Rose back to World n.1
I am ending my 2018 European Tour season in Turkey witnessing “Madness” or as my colleague Coach Alan Thompson put it “Golf is an enigma wrapped with mystery” I couldn’t agree more with Alan, after following the last 5 holes of the dramatic Duel Li Hao Tong / Justin Rose when not only both 3 putted twice but Li did it from 6 feet on the last hole to lose his Play off that would have been his biggest Title/Cheque!
By far the most incredible 3 putts from 6 feet I have witnessed in my 9 years on Tour, not forgetting that it was worth 350’000 euro! And even more, knowing that Li is a great putter and competitor.
Comments from the European Tour Blogger
“Incredible scenes as Rose misses his birdie putt, before Li misses both birdie and par putt
to hand Rose the title.”
It was my first visit to Turkey and I am glad to have met some friendly people, eat great food and enjoy wonderful weather. Belek / Antalya is definitely the place to come. On top of all I got to witness a local village wedding with traditional dancing ‘ Ganziantep’ as well the Fire Anatolia show.
One highlight of my week, a side from coaching Richard Sterne, was definitely meeting in person the visionary Fikret Ozturk Gradueted from Physics today top 20 leaders in Turkish Business and the owner of Carya Golf Club. Ozturk who's famous quote is:
"DO NOT PROMISE IF YOU CAN'T DELIVER, YOU MUST DELIVER AS PROMISED"
For sure Carya Golf Club did DELIVER as PROMISES a great golf event!
Until next year celebrating 10th years on Tour, Stephane #IamCaddiePlayer
