Indecent Exposure At The Open Golf?

Watching a little of the Open golf tournament I was reminded that television commentators on golf or any other sport for that matter live not just on a different planet but in a universe of their own. Faced with a lull in the action because everyone had fallen down a hole / gone for a wee / was busy playing sandcastles, the man on the mic. decided to wax lyrical about the facilities at the host club, Sandwich.

“There is a wonderful clubhouse here, the food and drink are excellent,” he enthused, “the only problem is it is quite a long way from the first tee so you can’t sit in a window and watch old Fred bang one off.”

Now I don’t know if watching old Fred bang one off of is part of the game of golf everywhere or just a local tradition at Royal Sandwich Golf Club but I certainly don’t want to watch him. As far as I’m concerned his private life is his own business but I hope club officials would warn him his habits could get him arrested.

Did Golf Chiefs Show Favouritism To Tiger Woods

In the British Open golf championship yesterday play was suspended due to bad weather shortly after one-in-the-hole specialist Tiger Woods had begun his round.

The official reason given by golf authorities in a news conference was that the course had become unplayable. We hear from our sources however the real reason was that former Champion Woods complained that the wind had caused his playing partner to develop a dangerous hook.

Now if there is one player in the tournament who should be used to playing with hookers it’s Tiger.

Graeme who? – An Englishman’s Pain

Some bloke called Graeme has just won the US Open golf championship and he’s one of ours…

It came as a total surprise to me as I have never heard of him. Now as you well know I am not the most avid follower of sport but I do try to keep up with what is going on, I’ve heard of Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy so I am not totally out of the loop.

But never mind who this Graeme geezer is, he’s a winner and we desperately need some winners in all our sporting endeavours especially the World Cup. Give him a few hours to sleep off the celebratory champagne then get him on a plane to South Af.f.f.for crying out loud he’s from Northern Ireland.

Isn’t it time we stopped all that tribalistic nonesense?

Oh well, back to desperation I guess … please God, I’m a sinner but I promise I’ll repent, I really really will, if you make Wayne Rooney get his act together before Wednesday. And a bit of smiting wouldn’t go amiss. Far be it from me to tell you who to smite God but a certain Senor Capello would be a good place to start.
