Masters to be decided

Golfing fans are eagerly awaiting the upcoming Masters at Augusta National.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler returns as defending champion after an impressive three-shot victory in last year’s contest, while Rory McIlroy arrives with another opportunity to complete the career Grand Slam.

Tiger Woods is set to be back in action, a year on from making his long-awaited comeback from injury and four years since his dramatic 15th major title. Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay and recent WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play winner Sam Burns are all chasing major victory.

The Championships about to launch
The Championships at Randwick racecourse are almost underway. They will provide world class racing in many events over the carnival.

The $3 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200 metres) has drawn a high-class field, featuring champion sprinter Nature Strip, 2022 Everest winner Giga Kick, recent Group 1 Newmarket winner In Secret and exciting young sprinters Coolangatta and Uncommon James.

The $3 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000 metres) is looking like a clash between Australian champ Anamoe and UK super horse Dubai Honour. Star Sydney mare Montefilia will be trying to spoil the party.

A fitting tribute to John Sattler (1942-2023)
Rugby league reporter John Lanzky writes: “John Sattler outshone them all. I was there at the SCG in 1970 for one of the toughest grand finals of all time. I saw Sattler’s gutsy performance, playing most of the game with a broken jaw. Then I was at the leagues club three months later when Sattler walked in, relaxed and smiling. Souths’ Round 4 win over Manly, 13-12, was a fitting tribute to former captain Sattler, who wore the number 13 with pride.

“Sattler won four premierships as captain of the Rabbitohs. His last in 1971 was South Sydney’s last until their drought-breaking triumph in 2014. In four appearances for Australia, Sattler captained his country three times. Sattler’s son Scott, a premiership-winning rugby league player in his own right, revealed in June 2021 that his father had been battling dementia since early 2020.

“South Sydney is in discussions with Scott Sattler’s family about staging a memorial at Redfern Oval, with a view to fulfilling the Rabbitohs legend’s final wish to have his ashes scattered on the sacred turf.”
