Broadhurst hits 64 to equal course record
Friday 31 March 2006
Paul Broadhurst took time out after equalling the course record of 64 in the Algarve Open here to thank his veteran Scottish coach, Bob Torrance.
The defending champion's return to form in the first round coincided with a visit to Torrance last week. He felt that he needed good advice about his poor form after missing the halfway cuts in the TCL Classic and the Singapore Masters.
"Bob is certainly not into the modern-day swing," Broadhurst said. "He uses Ben Hogan as his case study and that is right for me. He is not over technical and it is more about feel.
"I am no good at trying to put the club in certain places. It has to be flowing and I have to understand what I am doing. I have to work with what I have got and as long as I stick to certain guidelines I am OK."
His secret in the opening round? "I just stood up and smashed the driver," Broadhurst said.
A five-man team of skydivers brought play to a halt in the Algarve Open when they came down on the course after one member of the group had to use his reserve parachute.
