2007 - craig parry secures the triple crown
Today we look back to 2007 for the swansong of a globally popular Aussie native.
With his career winding down in the late 2000s Craig Parry, or ‘Popeye’ as he has been fondly known by all in the golf industry for as long as anyone can remember, had done just about everything in Australian golf.
He’d won the Australian PGA in 1992 and three times held aloft the Australian Masters trophy.
But the third and most important leg of the Australian ‘Triple Crown’ had always eluded him, the Australian Open trophy a glaring omission from his trophy cabinet.
Parry was hardly among the favourites when play began for the 2007 Stonehaven Cup at the Australian Golf Club in Sydney, and an opening round 74 did little to vault him into calculations.
