Su­per sum­mer of golf

Inside Golf - - Inside The Mailbox -

What a se­ries of golf in Aus­tralia! The Aus­tralian Open, Pres­i­dents Cup and the PGA. Such tal­ent on dis­play from all points of the globe. Riv­et­ing stuff. Just couldn’t put the TV re­mote down. Tiger and Adam’s caddy shock. Ja­son Day’s won­der­ful tal­ent (and al­most, but not quite, big break­through not far away.) Tiger show­ing glimpses of his best and then “Snake” Chalmers pro­duc­ing two won­der­ful fin­ishes. As an in­ter­est­ing side is­sue did any­one else no­tice the sar­to­rial trans­for­ma­tion of an­other Aussie great, Ge­off Ogilvy? From his usual daggy look of wrin­kled col­lar, short sleeves and skinny legged trousers into the per­ma­nent press of his Pres­i­dents Cup shirt and trousers. I even thought the Movem­ber “tashe” was quite flat­ter­ing. I think we can look for­ward to one day see­ing all of the above play­ers’ names grouped at the top of a Ma­jor leader­board some­where. Hope­fully Au­gusta! B.M. via email
