    Asta am constatat si eu si sper sa fie asa si cel mai bun sa castige. Mai am o slabiciune si pentru Ricky Fowler un talent imens care risca sa se piarda in curand daca nu va produce...trofee castigate.

    Bubba si Victor se intalnesc maine. Garcia, Fowler si Spieth mai departe, pana in acest moment.

    Superb turneul pana acum. Abia astept meciul celor doi. Bubba a parut vulnerabil in ambele runde de pana acum, dar probabil are un plus de valoare si experienta... Victor s-a mai pierdut uneori cu firea sub presiune (chiar in Turcia, cand a castigat, a jucat cu frica in runda finala).

    Nu-i nimic nou. Bubba e Bubba, adica joaca Golf Bubba, cu momente de genialitate unice dar si cu scapari inexplicabile. La el momentul conteaza. In zi buna, este imbatabil, altfel, pierde lamentabil. Victor joaca foarte bine, a castigat fara dubii, pana acum. Speram intr-o partida frumoasa, disputata.

    Victoire pour Victor. Excelent jucat, cu un putting aproape fara greseala si recuperari excelente, francezul a castigat mai mult decat meritat, conducand de la prima la ultima cupa. Bubba a alergat tot timpul dupa un...iepure pe care nu l-a prins. Puttingul l-a tradat ca deobicei, aducandu-mi aminte de anul trecut si de partea lui de joc cea mai slaba. Pentru Sergio Garcia, darnicia se plateste, cel care a profitat fiind unul din preferatii mei, Ricky Fowler, caruia Sergio i-a daruit o cupa pe care o putea castiga pentru ca a trenat jocul, a considerat el, prin doua dropp-uri.

    Victor are momente cand se crede prea bun. Odata cu maturizarea va deveni o forta redutabila si poate unul din... vectorii de imagine ai golfului mondial dupa ce Tiger va pune crosele-n cui.

    Ma bucur pentru Ernie Els, la anii lui joaca minunat. Si McDowell e incredibil cu modul cum se agata de fiecare minge. Trei victorii in prelungiri! Meciul lui cu Victor de diseara se anunta fascinant. Asta daca-l mai tine benzina pe britanic.

    L'arrogance et la confidence, in una si aceasi persoana, la Victor, combinatie pozitiva sau negativa, asta depinde de el, ma refer de acum incolo. Chestia cu benzina se poate aplica si francezului, Mc Dowell este un excelent putter, cu nervi de otel, calitati pe care Victor potential le poseda, lipsa de experienta la un astfel de turneu putand fi compensata de drive-ul excelent care i-ar putea creea un avantaj la cupele cu par 5. In ceea ce priveste vectorul de imagine, Victor, in afara de consistenta jocului ar trebui sa lucreze la a se face mai...medial, caci chiar daca nu as zice ca ii lipseste carisma, usoara aroganta ar putea sa-l loveasca ca un bumerang, lucru valabil si pentru Tiger. Si ceva in plus, Victor, Dumnezeule, esti francez, nu uita, mai lasa rosul ala ca nu pliaza pour un garcon de Cannes! Alaturi de francez, Oosthuizen a impresionat poate cel mai mult prin surclasarea adversarilor, indiferent de reputatia lor, dovedind ca a intrat in acea transa care-l caracterizeza cand este in forma, facandu-l periculos in lupta pentru adjudecarea trofeului. In final, incerc o predictie, pentru finala: Jason Day vs Jordan Spieth. Iata programul sferturilor cu orele de start (noua ore dupa ora Romaniei):

    Un articol, inclusiv video, cu gestul lui Garcia de a imparti cupa cu Fowler, gest care l-a costat meciul:

    Super Rickie il va intalni pe Jason Day, in prima semifinala. Victor preia conducerea la cupa 9, in timp ce Els are avantaj, dupa cupa 12, cu doua lovituri.

    Are nervi tari Victor, superb pitch-ul ala la ultima cupa dupa ce mingea a luat-o in directia gresita. O sa fie o zi de golf foarte interesanta.

    Jason Day, primul finalist. Echilibrat in celalalt meci cu doua cupe ramase.

    Superba finala castigata de Jason Days dupa 5 cupe, in prelungiri si unde Victor s-a luptat ca un erou sa ramana in joc, cu tufisuri si cactusi, lucru normal pentru un Dubuisson. Doi mari tineri campioni unde, din pacate, a trebuit sa se aleaga un invingator si un invins.

    Rickie Fowler a castigat locul trei invingandu-l pe experimentatul Els, la ultima cupa.

    Incep cu o rectificare, Rickie l-a batut pe Ernie la prima cupa de prelungiri si nimic altceva. Continui cu o imagine de familie:

    Nu stiu daca va dori sa participe regulat la turneele PGA avand in vedere ca este anul cu Ryder Cup. Atisha, de ce nu iti pui un avatar cu Victor? Ar fi frumos si te-ar prinde.

    Last man standing, Russell Henley, la The Honda Classic, profitand de caderea lui McIlroy, la ultimele cupe, si castigand la prima cupa, cupa 18, din prelungiri, depasindu-i atat pe Rory dar si pe Ryan Palmer si Russell Knox, toti patru terminand cu -8 dupa patru runde desi la un moment dat Rory avea -12.

    Inaintea turneului World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship Victor este in centrul atentiei:

    Victor Dubuisson prefers actions to speak louder than words in Miami Paul Mahoney The Times

    http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multim...ub_532866c.jpg


    European golf has a new superstar in Victor Dubuisson. The 23-year-old Frenchman may have lost the WGC-Accenture Match Play final two weeks ago to Australian Jason Day, but the way he channelled Seve Ballesteros to play miraculous escape shots from behind rocks and bushes in the Arizona desert, and the way he defeated major champions Ernie Els, Bubba Watson and Graeme McDowell, won him an army of fans. And everyone wants a piece of Dubuisson this week at the WGC Cadillac Championship at Donald Trump’s $250 million revamped Doral resort in Miami, Florida.

    The trouble is, the on-course Seve from Cannes is more Greta Garbo off it. He wants to be alone. His press conference here was at times excruciating as he was forced to talk about himself. But he’d better get used to it. His performance in Arizona and his maiden victory in Turkey last November, where he held off Tiger Woods and Justin Rose, have all but guaranteed him a place in Europe’s Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles in September. And if his meteoric rise up the rankings continues, the world No 23 is going to have to shake off his shyness and embrace his new celebrity status.

    He ought to he a marketing dream. There is something about Victor. He has charisma and charm, a winning smile, and a designer beard and flowing locks that make him look more like a musketeer than a golfer. But there is also a darker, brooding side to him. He’s a reformed club-throwing hothead with a reputation for sometimes being cavalier with his time-keeping and a reluctance to expand on why he left school when he was aged 10 or 12 to pursue his dream to play golf. Even that statement was delivered with vagueness. “Well, my parents, they, well, I was more by myself,” Dubuisson struggled to say. “Just no personal family questions,” he said. “I don’t like to think about that, sorry.”

    All of which, of course, makes him an intriguing superstar enigma. His past is only part of his story and may emerge as he becomes more comfortable in the spotlight. But for now it is his spectacular short game and monster long game that has the world of golf aghast. But just how will this likeable, gentle, sensitive soul cope when thrown into the cacophonous circus of the Ryder Cup? Far from being swallowed up, fellow Frenchman Thomas Levet, who played on Europe’s winning team in 2004, said it would be the making of him. “If it can bring Bernhard Langer out of his calm, it can do the same for Victor,” Levet said. “We may even see him punching the air and high-fiving.”

    Dubuisson was inspired by watching Woods win his first major at the 1997 Masters but he also had pictures on his wall of Levet, his French hero and role model, who is helping him to cope with all this newly acquired attention. “The more you play well, the more people get interested in you,” Dubuisson said. “So I hope I can have more interviews.” Levet’s message is clearly getting through.

    Woods, the world No 1, is the established centre of attention and speculation is still rife about whether he will play on Thursday after withdrawing from Sunday’s final round of the Honda Classic suffering from back spasms.

    Rose, the world No 7, missed out last week with a shoulder injury, but he is good to go and feels good vibes here having won in 2012 citing it an important stepping-stone on the way to winning the US Open last year. “It kept me on a trend of winning bigger and bigger tournaments,” he said.
