The origins of the ‘golf clap’ are largely unknown… but it could be that a member of the royal family, Prince Charles, with his big ears, was quite sensitive and became startled with a loud applause. Poor Charles. However, this round of ‘deliberately quiet applause, considered appropriate during a golf tournament’ certainly couldn’t have originated during the Australian Open. For a tournament with a ‘special’ status in the Official World Golf Ranking’s points system, it’s surely worthy of a more celebratory gesture than the underwhelming ‘golf clap’.
The penultimate event on the 2014 PGA Tour of Australasia, the Australian Open 2014 will happen in November and will see the world’s best golfers compete at the Australian Golf Club in Sydney. The field is always world class, so Australian Open Golf odds will be well worth a look. Since the first championship in 1904, the Open has evolved from a backyard event to being rated by the likes of Nick Faldo, Raymond Floyd and Jack Nicklaus as the world’s fifth Major. The silverware is impressive too – the coveted Stonehaven Cup. Tee off with Australian Open betting today! Cue applause.
Facts about the Australian Open Golf
- In 2009, Queenslander Adam Scott lifted the Stonehaven Cup for the first time, presented to him by his childhood hero, Greg Norman. We wonder if he asked for a ride on his boat.
- The Champion gets their name engraved on original Stonehaven Cup, which remains in the Golf Australia Museum, and a gold medal. The champion also holds a replica Stonehaven Cup for one year.
- The prize money for 2014’s Open is set at $1.75 million.
