WHETHER by accident or design, in-form Steve Smith is a product of Michael Clarke’s captaincy and Australian cricket is better for it.

    YES, we know. New Zealand is on a record ten-game winning streak and beat Australia in the pool stage. But here’s why the World Cup final is a different story.

    IMAGINE if Shane Watson won the man of the match award in the World Cup final. It could redefine his entire career. The masses might have to — gulp — applaud him.

    ZLATAN Ibrahimovic’s opening goal for Sweden today was brilliant and hilarious, while he also struck from the penalty spot. Wrap of Euro 2016 qualifying here.

    KEVIN Muscat says Melbourne Victory players will be “hurting” despite their 2-1 win over Central Coast last night and desperate to prove their worth in next week’s vital clash in Wellington.

    The National Golf ClubFollowing the success of the annual MCC Members’ Golf Day at Kingston Heath in 1998, an MCC Golf Club was established as a special interest group.

    Its immediate popularity and solid membership growth warranted its elevation to MCC Sporting Section status in 2003.

    The Golf Section is a wandering club, playing monthly at premier Victorian courses such as Kingston Heath, Royal Melbourne, Yarra Yarra, The National, Commonwealth and Huntingdale. We also do overseas golf tours, typically to Hong Kong and London to play official matches against golfers from those respective Cricket Clubs. Perpetual trophies are played for.

    As at December 31, 2013, there were 324 members of the MCC Golf Section
    (284 male and 40 female). We welcome additional members at any time.
