Tiger’s scored – but it wasn’t a thrill to watch
WHEN I heard the BBC was showing footage of Tiger Woods scoring in a portable building, I assumed the sex-mad golfer had taken another cocktail waitress back to her trailer park. Sadly not. In fact, it was a new innovation from the BBC’s coverage of The Open.
For the first time, the cameras had been granted access to... wait for it... the scorer’s hut!
Yes, in a world exclusive which seemed to excite veteran commentator Peter Alliss a great deal, we were treated to the fascinating sight of Woods and Lee Westwood sitting down at a small table and checking through their scorecards before signing them off.
It was thrilling stuff, I can tell you.
Which chair would they choose?!
Which biro from the small selection scattered on the table would they select?!
Would it work straight away or would they have to do a little scribble to get the ink flowing?!
Keep watching, folks, cos in live admin tasks ANYTHING can happen!
To think of all the time we have wasted watching golfers play golf when we could have been watching them do humdrum chores.
Next year, how about the BBC scraps the golf and just films Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter filling out the business mileage section of their tax return?
