Scoring chaos at Australian Open
BY Bruce Young | Australasian PGA Tour | 2007 Australian Open | Round One | 13 Dec 2007
A newly introduced scoring system at the Australian Open, clearly suffering from teething problems, has created chaos early on day one of the event at the Australian Golf Club.
Early scores had those in the media centre, especially those reporters for local and international radio stations, running for cover as they sought to establish what was happening on out on the golf course. At one point Brandt Snedeker was supposedly leading at 6 under when in actual fact he was at two under and soon after Robert Allenby was reported to be at 10 under when in actual fact he was at three under.
Allenby actually turned in four under, according to those who had a chance to get out onto the course and actually see what was happening, but it has been a bad start for a tournament of this significance.
Hopefully the system will be sorted before long to allow accurate reporting of this great event.
