Monday Rewind: 5 things we learned #WS6Perth

  • SHARE
Sentosa, Singapore, February 20: Here’s five things you need to take away from what has been an exciting week at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth!
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]The ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth made golf history by introducing  the revoluntionary Super 6 matchplay knockout format where it combined 54-holes strokeplay followed by a knockout matchplay format to determine the winner.
Johannes Veerman of USA Johannes Veerman of USA
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]Johannes Veerman was playing in his first match play event and could have created one of the tournament’s biggest upsets in the second round with Louis Oosthuizen had his putt on the second shootout hole not sail inches past the cup. Oosthuizen would go on to defeat the young American in the third shootout hole.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap]It was the first seed (Rumford) taking on the last seed (Phachara) in the final which would prove to be a crowd thriller.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]The number two seems to be synonymous with Phachara. He has 2 runner-up finishes so far and is number 2 on the Asian Tour Order of Merit now.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]5[/dropcap]Home ground advantage certainly counts as 13 out of the top-24 players were from Australia.
Ends.
