Golf Australia Express : November 2012
IT TAKES MORE THAN a good swing to win a game of golf and the debate over performance enhancing drugs just touches on the surface. While some say it’s inevitable some players will take banned substances, there is a strong contingent that argues drugs don’t help when you’re standing over a five-foot putt to make a playoff. As everyone knows, we drive for show and putt for dough. But what about the Mo? Performance enhancing? Almost certainly. A quick glance at the Movember website confirms what many of us already know—a Mo makes everything (apart from the top lip) smoother. There is more to a Mo than just performance. When a player steps up to the first tee sporting a glorious growth beneath their nose, you can be sure it is noticed by all. If their opponent has a bald lip, you can bet your ball marker they’re asking themselves whether their Mo would look as good. (That’s not the kind of thought you want to have with a driver in your hand.) If a player has The Growth the game quickly transcends scores and balls to become a battle of style, sure to be more vicious than the Syrian Open. If a Mo offers such an obvious advantage, you may wonder, why aren’t they all over the Tour? The answer is quite simple, and comes down to THE EFFECT A MOUSTACHE HAS ON THOSE AROUND YOU IS PALPABLE, WRITES WILL HONE. MO PROBLEMS? MO WORRIES. with Will Hone IN HONING sponsorship dollars. Major companies feel challenged by the Mo. Players cultivating a lip-lawn are believed to be more independent and more likely to take risks— traits that do not lend them to becoming role models. But the Mo has a part to play in most anything, from the cut-throat Saturday game to an annual grudge match between mates. But beware—a Mo requires commitment. There’s little point deciding on Monday you want a Mo by Saturday. Stubble doesn’t work—you just get laughed at and told to keep trying. One bloke even told me I should eat my crusts if I really wanted the soup-strainer to take off. Which is probably why I mow the lawn for 11 months of the year. OTG If a player has The Growth the game transcends scores and balls to become a battle of style, sure to be more vicious than the Syrian Open. TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS DPS BA
