World ranking and its picture ! After EurAsia cup 2014
Asians held to Europe to a draw having trailing behind with 0-5.Day one reflected the performance of the ranking of the payers. Day two with 2-3 score Ranking s become questionable. DAY THREE with results Asia 7 Europe 3 gave us the impression world ranking really does not reflect when playing in Asian conditions.
Europe team had a way better world ranking Averaged 38.2 -Asia extremely low at 251.6 .The game was predicted to be a white wash with no competition to Europe .Day one further confirmed the results to come. But things were different, most unexpected performance by the gallant team Asia made world ranking applicability in Asia questionable. World ranking have few Asian tournaments in it calculations, with rising Asia , and with numbers in worthy tournaments and players, getting bigger and better and in performance .It is time to readjust the manner world ranking is based on. Or it is time to have a world ranking based on Asian conditions. ?
Asian weather is harsh to visitors. Playing under Asian conditions require different temperament and style, the courses too are different they are with unpredictable greens as well as fairways. It is time a new world order in golf is formulated.
Damaru Golf is seeking ways how best this issue can be addresses for our own analysis as we strongly believe the future is in Asia. It has happened too cricket, why not golf .One is hitting a moving ball to target other is hitting a stationery ball to target. .
Lets wish our assumption may come true. First the dream then the reality –That’s what history has taught us in every field of development. Asia has all what it takes to be great golfers as the mind over matter is inherent to Asians. Which is the essence in golf success. Bodily power is secondary as the gentle tap takes more than 50% of the game. There mind power needs to be greater than bodily power. Asian are more adapted to this soft game.
