Golf Australia Express : November 2012
SAY WHAT? LETTER OF THE MONTH YOUR THOUGHTS... WTF, JASON DUFNER? Is this bloke for real or what? He is an embarrassment to professional golf. Not only did he not recognise the generous applause for his golfing feats by the appreciative gallery at the Perth International with a tip of the cap, he hardly cracked a smile or grin when he did something of note and must go down as one of the most boring, ignorant professional golfers on the world tour. Surely as a US PGA member, he must have some obligation to the game and how he conducts himself. I nearly fell over when at the Ryder Cup he actually smiled and half punched the air when he won a hole. I hope they didn't pay appearance money for him. I'd be demanding a refund. — PE TER ROOKAS, VIA EMAIL TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS *Ed’s Note: Guess we’re all just wired differently Peter. I take it WTF stands for ‘Way Too Frowny’? ON HOME-GROWN SWINGS... UNORTHODOX SWINGS and the success of their owners are one of the nuances that make the great game of golf great. How boring would it be watching the same swing all the time—those not-so-subtle variances to the norm give the backyard tour hacker reason to believe... and to persist. No matter how strange my swing and stance, I will never have a lesson in my life for fear of having my swing broken down and rebuilt. —SEAN CLARKE, VIA EMAIL GOLF IS SUCH a hard game to learn properly. Those who swing like it says in the textbooks have obviously had a lot of coaching and lessons to do everything just right. They become almost like robots. It is so refreshing when someone comes along who is self-taught and can score with the best of them. It says there's hope for us all and provides spice and variety. Tommy Gainey winning is good for the game. —WA RWICK PRENTICE, VIA EMAIL ON THE RYDER CUP... YOUR EDITION highlighting the Ryder Cup exposes the missing link in the Australian golfing schedule. Except for the rare appearances featuring the Presidents Cup, team match play is basically non-existent in this country. We have the opportunity to invite Asia to compete as its Tour is near fully developed. Another possibility could be a Great Britain contest and this event could be linked to 'The Ashes' as a home and away event. The Australian and international crowds would fully support such an event. —GRAHAM VOSS, VIA EMAIL THE LETTER OF THE MONTH RECEIVES A DOZEN CALLAWAY HEX CHROME BALLS
