Rumford joins a growing list of Australian golfer's who have won in 2013.
Brett Rumford played some forgettable shots during his final few holes at the European Tour's Ballantine's Championship in South Korea yesterday, but it was his approach to the first playoff hole that will be remembered for many years.
It would be an understatement to say that Rumford's Achilles heel is the driver. His driving accuracy has always floated just above 50% but manages to stay in tournaments thanks to a great short game.
Rumford was struggling with the driver again during the final round of the Ballantine's Championship and appeared to hit himself out of the tournament on the 17th hole. With a two shot lead, Rumford found the trees on the left and was forced to take a penalty drop finishing the hole with double bogey.
Australian golfers Adam Scott, Marc Leishman and Jason Day jostled for position around the top of the leaderboard all day and it wasn't until the final two holes when they relinquished top position as Snedeker and Cabrera took the lead courtesy of some great birdies over the closing holes.
We are looking at a very interesting leaderboard, with the likes of Tiger Woods, Tim Clark and Lee Westwood still very much in the hunt for the green jacket. Perhaps the most amazing aspect of the leaderboard is the presence of two time Masters champion, Bernard Langer (1985, 1993).
