Aussie golfer says Euro Tour as strong as PGA

Australian professional Marcus Fraser's well won Match Play Championship victory over U.S. star Keegan Bradley was founded on his superb short game, but bolstered in the belief that he gets just as much if not more challenge playing across the pond as he would in America.

"You've only got to have a look at the European Tour," Fraser said. "Yeah, we don't play for as much money, but the fields are just as strong as the PGA Tour."

Fraser also couldn't resist taking a shot at Team USA's recent results in the biennial Ryder Cup competition.

"I'm not sure of the exact record, but the Ryder Cup over the last however many years, I think Europe was in front.

"It's no surprise that there's so many European players in the field this week and international players. This week is not a PGA Tour event. It's a world event."

When Fraser is pretty down on the PGA Tour, he's not ashamed to be high on his own game.

"I know I'm one of the best putters in the game," Fraser said. "My putting stats in Europe and Asia have proved that sort of the last 10 years. But that's the whole idea, every time I look at a putt I try and make it, and I was lucky that that one went in."

Fraser's "lucky" putt was an effort from 25 feet for birdie that granted him a 1-up victory and a next round match against Frederik Jacobson of Sweden.
