Ogilvy Looks For Second Straight on Home Soil at Australian PGA

Geoff Ogilvy showed why he’s one of the top Aussies in the world in winning the Australian Open and now heads to Queensland to see if he can sweep his nation’s two biggest events.

It was quite the performance Ogilvy put on in Sydney, as his four straight rounds in the 60’s led him to a (-19) total and a four shot win over Matt Jones and Alistair Presnell.

Seeing as he just tore up the field last week, it’s fitting that he would be the bookmakers’ favourite at (7-1) despite being the 3rd ranked player in the field on the world rankings.

Just behind Ogilvy is Australia’s highest ranked player, Adam Scott.  Scott had an inconsistent week at ‘the Open’ where he broke 70 just once over 72 holes and could only manage a 32nd place finish.

However, it doesn’t seem like last week’s performance should be any reason to write him off as the tournament heads to the first tee on Thursday.

The 30-year old won the Singapore Open on the European Tour just a month ago and won on the PGA Tour at Valero Texas Open.

He’s beat the best in the world and he’s shown the ability to close the deal this year.  It wouldn’t be unexpected to see Scott put together a quality, bounce back week and the books may see that as well sending him off (8-1).

Robert Allenby, ranked just behind Scott at 22nd in the world, put together a fine year on the PGA Tour and should be expected to contend at the Australian PGA.

The veteran made almost $3-million, piling up five top-10 finishes, in the USA this year and continues to play very good golf at 39-years old.

He’ll be fresh and ready to go on Thursday having skipped last week’s Australian Open opting to stay home and get ready for this week.

The bookies like Allenby and have him level with Adam Scott at (8-1).

Coming in fourth with the books is PGA Tour player John Senden who heads to round one at (13-1).  Senden should have a good week having put together a string of consistent play, including last week’s 4th at the Aussie Open.

John Daly is in the field again this week and will need to clean things up after shooting a 77 in the second round in Sydney that led to a missed cut.  Although, at (101-1), he could be the biggest name in long shot range.
