Golf Australia Express : Issue 27
SAY WHAT? LETTER OF THE WEEK Rory McIlroy @RoryMcIlroy “I’m not sure I can be disappointed with 7 under, but if I can today was the day! Could have been a really low one! Plenty of positives tho!” Ian Poulter @IanJamesPoulter “I thought for a minute we was going to watch Tiger drive his car all the way back to West Palm Beach. MetLife blimp on his tail.” Ricky Barnes @RealRickyBarnes Congrats to the Lyle family with the birth of their new baby Lusi. Thoughts and prayers with Jarod as he starts Cemo. Stay Strong Bud!! Jason Gore @JasonGore59 Golf is insignificant when you consider my friend Jarrod Lyle has to fight against Leukemia again. You beat it once, you’ll beat it again. tweets of the week IDON’T normally write but I felt that I needed to. As a former club member I became used to a normal pace of play. Recently I’ve been playing more public courses and while I encourage more people to take up golf, I think teaching pros need to also tell new golfers about the pace of play. It’s great that they get out there and have a go but it’s really frustrating being behind people who do not know about course etiquette and how they should keep up with the group in front, not in front of the group behind. New players are great but their slow play will keep more players away from courses who don’t manage the pace of play properly. It should be part of all lessons and reinforced at the pro shop when you pay. WATCHING SOME OF the final round coverage of the WGC at Doral—on my computer no thanks to Channel 10—I couldn’t help notice how few spectators appeared on course. Having not seen too many regular PGA events on TV, I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this just an off week, or common for events other than the majors? —Kevin H, via email THE NEWS OF Tiger’s injury is a real blow. And I don’t mean for the man himself. He was well along the road to getting back to playing his best golf and don’t the fans love that? But listening to the comments made by Rory McIlroy after his win at the Honda—where he said the win was made more special with Tiger in hot pursuit—you get the feeling the players want him competing out there. Now lick your wounds and get back on the course you pussy. —Jerome R, via email I MUST ADMIT to urging on Ryo Ishikawa to victory at the Puerto Rico Open—no offence to the winner George McNeill. But I can’t help but feel when this youngster starts winning on the PGA Tour, golf’s going to get even more exciting to watch. —Steve P, via email *Ed’s Note: Couldn’t agree more Steve. THE LETTER OF THE WEEK WINNER RECEIVES A DOZEN DIXON GOLF EARTH BALLS VALUED AT $49.95 —Todd S, via email TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS
