Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 130
EMBRACING SOCIAL MEDIA IT ONLY took until 2011, but the PGA Tour finally discovered that allowing people to use their phones to post photos, updates and news from tournaments wasn’t stealing eyes away from its coverage, but rather enhancing it. Lifting the ban on mobile phones and other devices not only took golf into the 21st century (finally); it enhanced the game’s footprint significantly, and continues to give fans brilliant access to its stars. Although, Ian Poulter's fingers have never been the same. THE LONG DRIVE CONTEST GOLF’S biggest hitters hitting it big. Find us something that gets golf lovers more steamed up and we’ll get you a free cap at the 16th at Phoenix. Oh, wait. The PGA Championship revived long drive contests at Valhalla last year, with players encouraged to thump it long off the tee at the par-5 10th hole, and the top three receiving money to donate to charity. Sadly it was Bubba Watson who pooped this party, with the Tour’s driving distance leader refusing to participate, and instead hitting a 3-iron off the tee. THE MEMORIAL MILKSHAKES IT’LL only take one bad batch of milk, or a tub of ice cream that’s started to turn, for health inspectors to put a stop to a dairy tradition that’s outlasted all the players at Muirfield since 1976. The Memorial milkshake stand, which is only open to players and their families, is one of those little extras that make some tournaments a special experience. Sadly, you and I can’t partake in the popular Buckeye (peanut butter) calorie fix, but them’s the perks of being a pro. ...and 5 fun things they haven't banned... YET.
