Drastic Change in Position in Saudi International 2020

Drastic Change in Position in Saudi International 2020

Today, there were two drastic change in position:

Dustin Johnson:

First was defending champion Dustin Johnson, Johnson was very consistent as he was managing to get a minimum of two under whenever he goes out on the field, in first round Johnson had 67 then 68 in round two and again 68 in round three to a total of -7 and yesterday Jonson was T7 now he is in top ten with tied at fourth place. It looks like defending champion is not going home empty handed.

Jazz Janewattananond:
Thailand’s Janewattananond was playing really well with scores of 68, 66 and was certainly near winner’s circle and was T5 at that time but don’t what happened Janewattananond in round three as he gave away three bogey and two double bogey to +7 and he did got a birdie in that round but single birdie cannot save from a bizarre situation and subsequently Janewattananond got +6 for the round and all of the suddenly his -6 score was cancelled to 0 and went down from T5 to T47.

Malaysia’s Gavin Green shares for lead in Round 1 of Saudi International

Malaysia’s Gavin Green shares for lead in Round 1 of Saudi International

To everyone’s surprise Malaysia’s Gavin Green is tied for lead with Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell through a score of 64 at Royal Green and Country Club golf course.
2017 Asian Order of Merit winner Gavin Green had a great day as he got birdie in first hole of the day and maintained a rhythm by capturing four more to five under in his first nine and again he got birdie on first hole of second nine to six under but unfortunately Green got bogey on 12th and 14th hole which reduced his score from -5 to -3 then also he didn’t let those two birdies spoil his round one scorecard as Green got back to back birdies in 16th, 17th hole and finished the round with a remarkable six under.

Even-though Gavin Green and Graeme McDowell had same score (64) but still their round one story was very different as McDowell missed a chance of getting birdie in opening holes of both nine and got consecutive birdies twice, first from 2nd to 5th hole (4 birdies) then, 16th to 18th hole (3 birdies) and instead of a bogey, McDowell got a double bogey in second hole of second nine (11th hole) which reduced his score from -8 to -6 to tie for the lead.
Graeme McDowell is playing his first Saudi International tournament and his opponent Gavin Green is playing the tournament for second time and in 2019 edition Green finished with a strong T11 and will be looking to improve this time.

Round 2 starts at 2:30 AM GMT on last day of January.
