I sometimes enjoy watching these more than tour events. Same as the video Rick Shiels did the other week with 4 amateurs and told them the first to get birdie wins £10k.
He played a 6 holer with poulter and Westwood start of season, eye opener for him, they were streets ahead… especially poulter.At one point he was +1. He gave going pro a go in 2013 on the EuroPro tour but quickly found out that he wasn’t at the level required.
He was beating Westwood though was he not? Before Westwood goaded him into going for the green with the wood out the rough?He played a 6 holer with poulter and Westwood start of season, eye opener for him, they were streets ahead… especially poulter.
Great patter from Bullard
Few years back he did a thing with Andrew Coltart where on a Par 3 they went closest to the pin with every club in the bag and he beat him with about 90% of the clubs.Correct Westwood called him out “we didn’t come out here for you to lay up” and Bullard took the bait, was funny though
Fair enough mate - I’ll defer to your knowledge of Jimmy’s putting prowess, the video being my first viewing of him on a course.That’s probably the weakest part of his game, along with chipping around the green.
He played O’Hara a few months back who is also very good and if his putting was better he would have battered him.
The greens that Ewan Ferguson normally putts on will be completely different and much slower from greens set up for the best players in the world.Fair enough mate - I’ll defer to your knowledge of Jimmy’s putting prowess, the video being my first viewing of him on a course.
Seemed to be pretty reasonable at his lag putting, but what do I know. The lad Ferguson on the other hand struck me as pretty underwhelming on the greens for a pro. But I’m sure there was a bit of kidology going on. He fell foul of Jimmy’s pride before a fall (cabbage drive) on the last when he bigged up the 7 wood only to miss the three footer (make the putt first Ewen!) I’ll keep an eye for him whenever I stick Sky Golf on for the odd DP tourney.
The old adage applies I guess - drive for show, putt for dough.
