Golf Australia Express : June 2013-US OPEN
ON BIG (SMALL) WINS... After slogging it out for now more 3 years I finally scored under 100 shots off the stick at Hillview GC . Came in with 97! I was inspired that week-end after Scott's green jacket victory and played beyond my skill level of 31 handicap. I had the longest drive prize too. It may not be the PGA but coming in first made me feel like a star golfer. Can't wait to get out there again with my new Tiger golf shoes. —CRAIG DEWEE, VIA EMAIL ON ADAM SCOTT... I THINK ADAM Scott will win more majors, but let's give him a chance to enjoy this, his first, before heaping more expectation on him. No doubt there are those out there ready to cut him down at the first sign of perceived failure. —PAUL BELL, VIA EMAIL SAY WHAT? 'RICH' is a relative word that swings on your means and current demands. You can take a holiday by the beach or in the bush and have a game of golf with family or friends for less than the cost of going to the movies or entry to a major football game. Given that a game of golf takes four hours and the movies or football are two, it is good value for money. The equipment second-hand is available on ebay at minimal outlay. All that is required is an outlook to enjoy the challenge together with a sense of humour. And that is not costly. — PE TER A LEXANDER, VIA EMAIL TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS THE LETTER OF THE MONTH RECEIVES A DOZEN CALLAWAY HEX BLACK TOUR BALLS ON TIGER'S DROP... THIS IS ALL just another way to get at the best golfer of our time. Would Nicklaus,Palmer or Player have DQ'd themselves at The Masters? You'll never know; they were never put in that situation at the Masters. —ROD RACKLEY, VIA EMAIL ON 'RICH' GOLF... What a lovely counterpoint you included in your May issue. A fantastic video about Mumbai golf embedded in an article about the price and options of mondern-day golf. Then followed by equipment including a bag for $883, no less, and a jacket for $275. Yes indeed, there are options out there for us all. —DEREK MONTAGUE, VIA EMAIL YOUR THOUGHTS... LETTER OF THE MONTH
