Johnson thinks that Woods is fit for golf
Current ranked one golfer Dustin Johnson thinks that fellow player Tiger Woods is fit to play and it would be great for the game to get one of its finest back. Now 41 years old Tiger Woods provided the world with a tantalising footage of his imminent return to the sport with him hitting a “Stinger” shot with a long iron which he posted on Twitter and this has sent the golfing community in a frenzy in anticipation of his finally getting his A-game back. The Stinger shot was one of his most abused moves when the former world number one was in his prime back in the day. It has been only recently though that the 14 times major champion has been able to resume full golfing routines after almost a decade of being plagued by back injury and consequent corrective surgeries which put off his comeback by a long way. Tiger Woods last won a major trophy with the US Open back in 2008.
Queensland Open the perfect stage for Jake McLeod to prove himself
Jake McLeod is all set to bring his top game to his new home club but not before he makes sure that everything is perfect with regards to his game. And what better way to prove to himself that he is indeed in his top for other than giving a top-tier performance at the Isuzu Queensland Open at the Brisbane Golf Club in Australia. McLeod 23 has his sights set on the Queensland Open before he tees off in his new home club and he predicts that a sharp 15 under par will be required to win in the softer green course in Brisbane after the Par 70 to Par 71 correction. Gold Coast-based player Michael Sim, 2015 New Zealand Open champion Jordan Zunic, and Victorian Deyen Lawson who posted a record 65 last year are the other top picks for the Q-School in Europe. McLeod is pretty confident given his recent form and though still getting chided for his man bun-things seem to be moving pretty smoothly for the youngster.
Dustin Johnson and Matsuyama in the same group
With the PGA Tour concluding its three-week engagement in Asia with the WGC-HSBC Champions in China drama was to ensue in the first two rounds at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai with reigning champion Hideki Matsuyama mounting a formidable defence for his title against the world no. 1 Dustin Johnson. Johnson is going to be in his first start of the new season at an event he won in 2013 and Matsuyama who posted a comfortable seven-shot win a year ago will be playing alongside him along with various others such as Jon Rahm.
