Golf Australia Express : October 2014
HAVE just seen the Big Fore [OTG September] and how Mark Allen hates Jim Furyk. He hates him for all the wrong reasons — it's not because he fiddles around, or his pre-shot routine, or that he is the slowest player — it's because he gives absolutely nothing back to all the people who pay his way to come and watch golf. When are these people going to realise that without us, the general punter, there won't be a professional tour and they won't earn the millions they are currently getting. Seriously Jim, give us something! [That goes for you, too, Duff.] — TED ALLEN, SOUTH YARRA, VIC The Letter of the Month receives a dozen Callaway Speed Regime Balls valued at $59 LETTER OF THE MONTH SAY NO TO SLOW BORN TO BE GREAT LEAVE THEM ALONE GENTLEMEN, don't let your personal views get in front of the game. Jim Furyk and Keegan Bradley are fine players. Sure they have a set pre-shot routine — so what? Jim has won over $51 million playing the game he loves. I don't like slow play but these are pros who live for the game. – Allan Winter, Moonee Ponds, VIC KEEGS IS OK BY ME ENTERTAINING as always fellas. Furyk and Bradley? Furyk gives me nothing — no character, slow. But Bradley is a bit of a character and once set, hits quickly. At least he gives something back in terms of character. Dufner — nothing. Patrick Reed — nothing. – John Reid, Allambie Heights, NSW SLOW COACHES COULDN'T agree with your thoughts more on Keegan [Bradley] and Jim [Furyk]. If you can leave the room and make a coffee when Jim is putting, you can make a three-course meal waiting for Keegan to hit the ball. – Dana Slater, Landsdale, WA Couldn't agree more with Mark Allen [OTG September]. Add Kevin Na to the list! They're a blight on the game. – Martin Kennedy, Warrnambool, VIC Lads, loved the video of Rory [McIlroy] as an eight-year- old on Irish TV you put in the September issue. His technique then looked better than mine does now. You know what they say — you're either born with it or you're not. Rory has definitely proven the former. Funny thing is, I can barely understand his accent nowadays, let alone with that squeaky, high-pitched Northern Irish kid's twang. Thanks for the chuckle. Keep up the great work. – Jake Taylor, Glenelg, SA YOUR SAY
