Weekend Preview - Lawrie is Sponsored by a Bus Company

Lawrie leads in Qatar, Fowler and Day play bad so it is now the 'Big Two' and Spieth is collecting cash in Singapore


Paul Lawrie thriving without a Sunday service

Paul Lawrie leads by two in Qatar going into the final round which is being played on a Saturday after some fine play in the Doha wind.

The Scotsman thrives when sticking his waterproofs or a nice warm jumper on and is the only golfer we know sponsored by a bus company. Hopefully unlike his sponsor he can run smoothly on the weekend.

PS Paul if you read this can you hook me up with train tickets at Christmas? DM us ;)


A load of skateboarders in the hunting pack

Thorbjørn Olesen, Tommy Fleetwood and Rafa Cabrera-Bello are all within three and all look like skateboarders.

Joining them is Branden Grace who is sneakily gunning for Top 10 in the World Rankings after not finishing outside the Top 10 in his last five outings.


The 'Big Four' is now the 'Big Two'

Obviously this is ridiculous but so is the media chat of big threes, four or elevens. Until they have all won multiple majors we can't really use the same term that described Nicklaus, Palmer and Player!

The Farmer's Insurance Open is only one round in and Day and Fowler are both struggling with +1 and Even first rounds respectively.

Day missed the pro-am with illness and wasn't feeling well on Thursday, whilst Fowler has travelled across 12 time zones since winning in Abu Dhabi. Why you ask? He is sponsored by Farmer's Insurance!


Spieth is playing out in Singapore collecting cash money

Spieth is knocking it around Singapore and as we write this is currently in his second round a few back in an Asian Tour field quite frankly beneath him.

Notably his caddy Michael Greller got injured in the first round and now has his agent on the bag for the week. The dude probably should do some work for his cut in what is likely a pretty appearance fee out there!
