Golf Australia Express : Issue 28
SAY WHAT? LETTER OF THE WEEK Ben Crane @BenCraneGolf Just watched replay of @webbsimpson1 lip out his tee shot on 15. Rules committee can we check that pins circumference? Ian Poulter @IanJamesPoulter Not sure that was a great interview with Ernie Els after the round. That question was a bit short and stuck in like a dagger. Not cool. Luke Donald @LukeDonald Thank you for all the support. Hope you all enjoyed that 7 iron in the playoff as much as I did! 2 weeks off now to prepare for the Masters Stuart Appleby @StuartAppleby Beating balls this week, no Bay Hill (home game) not sure how I missed a sponsors invite, guess I better not rely on my letter skills then.. tweets of the week IAGREE wholeheartedly with Todd's comments in issue 27 about slow play. What I would also like to see taught by coaches is how to care for the golf course, in particular the greens. I spend half of my time on the greens repairing pitch marks left by previous golfers. I believe every course should supply pitch repair tools to everyone who pays green fees. The cost would be negligable but hopefully the condition of the greens would improve dramatically. It seems to be a sign of the times that the average person today doesn't care about anyone else. JUST TWO WEEKS until the year’s first major and I can’t wait. And if the sort of golf we’ve been dished so far this season is served to us at Augusta, then the 2012 Masters is sure going to be appetising. McIlroy, Donald, Woods, Mickelson are all in form but this time let’s hope one of our boys wins the green jacket—the first Australian to do so. —Peter M, via email I LOVE GOLF course imagery. There’s something about looking at beautiful golf landscapes that inspires me to get out and play golf. The Mystery Hole in last week’s issue was fantastic. Wish I could say the same about my sleuth work. The clues didn’t help me much. Is it in England somewhere? Was I close? —Stephanie V, via email *Ed’s Note: No you weren't Stephanie! The answer to all your questions are in this week's Dream. Hope you enjoy it. ERNIE ELS IS one of my favourite players and it was heart-wrenching seeing him finish the way he did to miss out on a chance to win in America on Sunday. To think after another great week of great ball-striking that missing a tiddler on the last looks like it may cost him a berth in The Masters. Come on Ernie, go get them this week. —Suzanna P, via email THE LETTER OF THE WEEK WINNER RECEIVES A DOZEN DIXON GOLF EARTH BALLS VALUED AT $49.95 —Roy C, via email TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS *Ed’s Note: We're with you Roy. Having fun and being respectful of the course are not mutually exclusive. It's also easy to blame the problem on the ignorant golfer, but often you'll find it's the toffee-nosed golfer who feels it beneath him or her to bend down and fix a pitch mark. Drives me insane.
