One of the most influential golf players of all times Thomas Bjorn will be looking to make a comeback for the Ryder Cup this year. On his 43rd birthday Bjorn said that he is looking forward to playing in the Ryder Cup and hopes that he will be able to win it.
Speculations are that the 43 year old will play for the captain which the committee chooses and of which he is the chairman. He also gave a hint that he would like to play for Paul McGinley’s Europe. Bjorn also said that last year was one of the best seasons he had since 2000/2001. However the main thing is he is setting short goals for this season. He has only focused on January so far and not beyond that.
2013 as he said was one of the most successful seasons so far in his career where he won in Sun City, the Nedbank Challenge. Apart from this he also achieved second place in the World Cup. In the beginning of the season during late summers Thomas Bjorn also won in Switzerland. He lifted the European Masters and has entered the top 25 list. From the hints which he gave to the reporters it seems that currently he was preparing for Durban for the Volvo Champions tournament.
He also talked about the hard work and toil that he had to undergo in order to make this comeback and he is quite confident about this season because of the form he had last year. He also indulged himself in golf politics and soon became the chairman in 2007 for the Tournament Committee. He also believes there will be some more changes in the hierarchy of the tour. And the change will be best for the tour itself.

Scott, the champion at Augusta National earlier in the year, started the final round of event on Sunday at the Royal Melbourne with a lead of four shots, which put him five shots ahead of Matt Kuchar. However, Scott struggled for much of the play on the final day of the event where as Kuchar managed to pick up a whopping five shots from his first eleven shots of the day, closing the gap on the home favorite.
At one point of time, Kuchar had a one point lead over Scott but he faltered when he shot a bogey and a double bogey on the final three shots of the day while Scott managed to hold firm his position and to take the golden jacket once again.
And this win keeps alive Scott’s dream of winning the triple crown of Australian golf, something that he is highly favored to do. And with the performance he put up against the likes of Vijay Singh and Matt Kuchar, he will himself feel a lot confident that he can manage to achieve a very unprecedented feat as well in front of his fans.
