Double Crumble - Results

Barring the miraculous double a few weeks back, the golfing season appears to be adapting to a specific theme, that theme being - get yourself into an absolutely fantastic winning position and blow it. Alvaro Quiros and even more so Tim Clark yesterday adding to a long list including, Fisher, Goosen, Howell III, Castano, Mark Brown to name but a few...



Once again yesterday, on the European Tour, Alvaro Quiros only had to get down the 18th hole with a par 4 and the likelihood was he'd take the title, only to cut loose with his drive and fly it 30 yards right of the fairway, clocking an innocent by-stander in the head in the process.

Tim Clark - WHAT does he have to do to win?(rhetorical question) Again, a par needed down 18 to capture his maiden win(his card for the previous 3 rounds on the 18th reading: par,birdie,birdie) and he ends up crashing over the trees and then missing a 10 footer for the win. The first playoff hole, he nails 1 to within 7 feet only to trickle the putt over the edge. The second playoff hole, he puts his approach shot right down the pin only to actually HIT the pin smack in the centre and fly back 25 feet allowing Stricker to hole out for victory.

The latest 2 in a long line of hard luck stories this season it seems. 1 bright note is I took the trade on Tim Clark after letting Quiros ride, even though he reached as low as 1.6 on the exchanges. I wasn't making the same mistake twice. Bring on Memorial and the Welsh Open!
