Graeme McDowell hopeful about Dubuisson

Graeme McDowell is happy to have his stint with Victor Dubuisson and has also expressed high hopes about the Frenchman’s career. Graeme paired up with Victor at Ryder Cup foursomes triumph at Glenagles.

The French player had his debut in the Ryder Cup this year alongside McDowell & they were together for the maximum time in the afternoon prior to seeing off seasoned American pairing of Keegan Bradley & Phil Mickelson.

McDowell was highly impressed with his new partner and was really open about it in public. “I have always been really fortunate in the Ryder Cups & have got quite decent partners. Definitely I paired with Rory for the last 2 years – he seemed to be okay. I feel myself very fortunate to play along a golfer who I feel has the potential to be the next golf superstar of Europe”, stated Graeme.

“He was really awesome today”, McDowell continued his praise for Dubuisson. “He did not miss out on a single shot. Victor’s iron-play was simply outstanding in extremely tough conditions.”

Victor admitted that he was actually tensed in his maiden Ryder Cup venture yet he was able to come out of the issues and swing in full glory.

“It was just amazing, playing with McDowell”, stated Dubuisson.”I was tad nervous yesterday. The morning was quite a prolonged wait – it seems we kind of tweed off around 2:35 in the afternoon- you get up at 8 in the morning & keep on thinking about afternoon the entire morning. However, the huge time spent with Graeme has actually helped me a lot. While I was having a walk with him towards the tee, the stress just disappeared. It was a great positive feeling which helped me to play the game at best”, he added in.

Adam Scott and caddy part ways

Australian golfer Adam Scott is on the lookout for a new caddie after sacking Steve Williams, who helped guide him to his only major title, the 2013 Masters as well as to the top of the rankings during their three and a half year run together.

Scott made the announcement after finishing ninth in the Tour Championship which saw Williams carry his bag for the last time.

The 50 year old Kiwi has also expressed his desire to cut back on the number of weeks he spent on Tour to spend more time with his family, his wife and 8 year old son back home in New Zealand. He proposed that he caddy for Scott between March and September, a time during which the bulk of the Aussie’s playing schedule takes place.

When asked about the proposal that Williams had put forward to him, Adam Scott stated that he understood the position of the Kiwi, adding that his life and career path are completely different from his and it needs to be worked out. He also admitted that having a part time caddie didn’t appear to be quite appealing to him.

Scott also thanked Steve Williams for helping him achieve some of his career goals during the time they had been together as a team. But Adam Scott also mentioned that the priorities and goals of both of them are at different points now and that is why, they had decided that the best thing to do at this time was move on.

Williams also recently said that although his semi-retirement might have put off Scott from retaining him, he might still be interested in going back to caddying for his former employer Tiger Woods if only the American gave him the call to return after firing him in 2011.

Tiger Woods Will Not Be A Part of The U.S Team At The 2014 Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods’ fans will obviously be disappointed because they will not be able to witness Woods’ performance in the Ryder Cup this year.

A four player U.S team is going to be sent to the Ryder Cup. The captain of the U.S team is Tom Watson who was thinking about selecting Tiger Woods as one of his teammate for the Cup. However, Woods made it clear that he does not want to be a part of the team.

Woods has taken this decision because ever since he won the major championship in the year 2008 at the US Open, he has been facing lots of personal problems. Along with that, he has been struggling with serious injuries- the latest being the back injury.

On the 31st of March, 2014, Woods underwent a back surgery and therefore he revealed that he will not participate in the Ryder Cup because he is not perfectly fit for it.

According to his trainer and doctors, Woods needs to rest so that his back muscles can be healed and rehabilitated efficiently. Therefore he can neither play golf nor indulge in any kind of practices related to the sport. Woods is very disappointed as he will not be able to participate in the Cup.

Tiger Woods is going to support the U.S team at the tournament and thinks that the team is outstanding and is going to perform really well in the Ryder Cup 2014.

Tom Watson (U.S team captain) is going to select his fellow teammates for the Cup on 2nd of September, 2014. Watson is of the opinion that Woods did a very smart thing by being honest about his health. He wishes that Woods recovers soon and gets back into the game with a bang. Watson’s main aim is to select three U.S players who will give their best at Gleneagles.
