Matt, Looks Forward To Olympics

For those who train and aim for Olympic appearance, they definitely find it in their destiny if they finally make the eligibility list.


That is what the case seems to be for Matt Kuchar. He states that earning a berth in the Olympic Games this year at Rio seems to be in his fate. The American professional player has maintained a focused vision about Rio and any impending perils like the possibility of getting affected by Zika virus or the plummeting state of the economy or security level concerns cannot remove his focus from his goal in the Games. Kuchar states that his vision is to have the gold medal being slipped around his neck. He is hoping that golf would make a major comeback in the Olympic Games this year. Indeed, the game is being hosted at this venue and being included as part of the Games after an absence of 112 years.

Masters: Ratings affected by Tiger Woods absense

Tiger Woods is still apparently a deciding factor in the world of gold, especially when it comes to the audience interest, even keeping in mind the ever increasing popularity of Jordan Spieth and his goal of a second straight Masters win.


On Thursday, in the 1st round of Masters, ESPN attracted a 1.7 rating, averaging out 2.398 million viewers, as per Nielsen Fast National numbers. It was down from a 2.2 (3.218 million) viewers previous year, with Tiger in the pack.

It was said that the first round figures were much better than the ratings in 2014, the last year in where Tiger Woods was not in the pack. ESPN registered a 1.5 rating with a 2.006 million viewers. Woods has not played in any golf tournament as he recovers from his surgeries.

Woods is missing from this years Augusta National list for the second time in 3 years. He confirmed on Wednesday that he had amplified up his practice routine and was hitting the huge dog on his home course in Jupiter, Florida.

Matt Kuchar All Set To Defend Title

Kuchar (Matt) has always been quite a predictable in pro golf since long.

He has taken part in 119 PGA events over 5 seasons starting from the year 2010 till 2014, recording forty eight top-ten finished & 84 top-twenty five finishes.

He is probably the sole golfer who did not endure any slump at that time.

However, the results have not been there in the last 2 months for RBC Heritage defending champ.

In typical style, Matt started this year with 5 top-25s in a row, including 1 runner up & a 3rd position. He has not ever missed out on cut in the past 6 events since February & yet he has just 2 top-25s & a top 15th finish.

“It had been tad frustrating, the past 2 weeks. It has not been typical play for me”, stated the champion golfer.

“I had 2 practice days which were really frustrating. I was aware that I was not where I wished to be & put in additional hours that what I anticipated. However, I did have a fantastic day & a wonderful practice session.”
