Ogilvie Stays In Front

By Sports NetworkMarch 1, 2003, 5:00 pm
Nationwide TourADELAIDE, Australia -- Joe Ogilvie managed only an even-par 71 Saturday but it was good enough to build a two-shot lead at the season-opening Jacob's Creek Open Championship. Ogilvie, a two-time winner on the Nationwide Tour, finished 54 holes at 6-under-par 207.
Australia's Shane Tait shot a 4-under 67 to move into second place at 4-under-par 209. He was followed by fellow countryman Jarrod Moseley at 3-under-par 210.
Swirling winds continued to blow golf balls all over Kooyonga Golf Club during the third round. Ogilvie, who worked himself into a share of the lead after the second round, made the most of it and picked up his first birdie of the day at the second to reach 7-under.
Ogilvie ran into trouble at the fourth. He hit a bad drive and his second shot fell in the rough short of the green. Ogilvie had a chance to save par but missed a 10-foot putt for a bogey.
He recovered with a birdie at the eighth to return to minus-7 and open a three-shot lead as his competitors faltered. Playing partner Marcus Fraser, who began the day tied for the lead with Ogilvie, struggled with a double-bogey at the very same hole. Fraser was ultimately disqualified for marking an incorrect score on the 17th.
'When you make a birdie on that hole it's a big thing,' Ogilvie said of the eighth. 'If it happens tomorrow it will be really big.'
Ogilvie increased his advantage to four shots with a birdie at the 13th after his second shot landed three feet from the cup. He gave the shot back at the following hole, however, after he failed to save par from virtually the same distance.
The 28-year-old stumbled again down the stretch with a bogey at the 17th but it was still enough to hold a two-shot cushion heading into the final round.
Roland Thatcher carded a 74 to finish four shots off the pace at 2-under-par 211.
Andre Stolz posted an even-par 71 to finish tied for fifth at 1-under-par 212 alongside Cameron Percy and Peter O'Malley.
Peter Senior, D.A. Points, Shane Bertsch and Brett Rumford were six shots back at even-par 213.
This event is co-sanctioned by the Nationwide Tour and the PGA Tour of Australasia.

    The Open 101: A guide to the year's third major

    By Golf Channel DigitalJuly 20, 2018, 5:30 am

    Take a look at some answers to frequently asked questions about The Open:

    What's all this "The Open" stuff? I thought it was the British Open.

    What you call it has historically depended on where you were. If you were in the U.S., you called it the British Open, just as Europeans refer to the PGA Championship as the U.S. PGA. Outside the U.S. it generally has been referred to as The Open Championship. The preferred name of the organizers is The Open.

    How old is it?

    It's the oldest golf championship, dating back to 1860.

    Where is it played?

    There is a rotation – or "rota" – of courses used. Currently there are 10: Royal Birkdale, Royal St. George's, Royal Liverpool and Royal Lytham and St. Annes, all in England; Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland and St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Royal Troon, Turnberry and Muirfield, all in Scotland. Muirfield was removed from the rota in 2016 when members voted against allowing female members, but when the vote was reversed in 2017 it was allowed back in.

    Where will it be played this year?

    At Carnoustie, which is located on the south-eastern shore of Scotland.

    Who has won The Open on that course?

    Going back to the first time Carnoustie hosted, in 1931, winners there have been Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton (1937), Ben Hogan (1953), Gary Player (1968), Tom Watson (1975), Paul Lawrie (1999), Padraig Harrington (2007).

    Wasn't that the year Hogan nearly won the Slam?

    Yep. He had won the Masters and U.S. Open that season, then traveled to Carnoustie and won that as well. It was the only time he ever played The Open. He was unable to play the PGA Championship that season because the dates conflicted with those of The Open.

    Jean Van de Velde's name should be on that list, right?

    This is true. He had a three-shot lead on the final hole in 1999 and made triple bogey. He lost in a playoff to Lawrie, which also included Justin Leonard.

    Who has won this event the most?

    Harry Vardon, who was from the Channel Island of Jersey, won a record six times between 1896 and 1914. Australian Peter Thomson, American Watson, Scot James Braid and Englishman J.H. Taylor each won five times.

    What about the Morrises?

    Tom Sr. won four times between 1861 and 1867. His son, Tom Jr., also won four times, between 1868 and 1872.

    Have players from any particular country dominated?

    In the early days, Scots won the first 29 Opens – not a shocker since they were all played at one of three Scottish courses, Prestwick, St. Andrews and Musselburgh. In the current era, going back to 1999 (we'll explain why that year in a minute), the scoreboard is United States, nine wins; South Africa, three wins; Ireland, two wins; Northern Ireland, two wins; and Sweden, one win. The only Scot to win in that period was Lawrie, who took advantage of one of the biggest collapses in golf history.

    Who is this year's defending champion?

    That would be American Jordan Spieth, who survived an adventerous final round to defeat Matt Kuchar by three strokes and earn the third leg of the career Grand Slam.

    What is the trophy called?

    The claret jug. It's official name is the Golf Champion Trophy, but you rarely hear that used. The claret jug replaced the original Challenge Belt in 1872. The winner of the claret jug gets to keep it for a year, then must return it (each winner gets a replica to keep).

    Which Opens have been the most memorable?

    Well, there was Palmer in 1961and '62; Van de Velde's collapse in 1999; Hogan's win in 1953; Tiger Woods' eight-shot domination of the 2000 Open at St. Andrews; Watson almost winning at age 59 in 2009; Doug Sanders missing what would have been a winning 3-foot putt at St. Andrews in 1970; Tony Jacklin becoming the first Briton to win the championship in 18 years; and, of course, the Duel in the Sun at Turnberry in 1977, in which Watson and Jack Nicklaus dueled head-to-head over the final 36 holes, Watson winning by shooting 65-65 to Nicklaus' 65-66.

    When I watch this tournament on TV, I hear lots of unfamiliar terms, like "gorse" and "whin" and "burn." What do these terms mean?

    Gorse is a prickly shrub, which sometimes is referred to as whin. Heather is also a shrub. What the scots call a burn, would also be considered a creek or stream.

    Tiger Tracker: 147th Open Championship

    By Tiger TrackerJuly 20, 2018, 5:25 am

    Following an even-par 71 in the first round of the 147th Open Championship, Tiger Woods looks to make a move on Day 2 at Carnoustie.
