In a recent story, a golfer in South Africa got eaten by a crocodile while fishing for golf balls in a pond on the golf course. Yes, he was a bit stupid for being waist deep in water in an area known to be frequented by crocodiles.
If Tiger Woods didn't have bad luck, he'd have no luck. He might want to consider visiting a temple, light a few joss sticks, make a huge donation and let the monks pray to remove whatever black cloud is following him around.
Last year was rather exciting as many new courses came on line, many new ones resumed construction and many new people picked up golf clubs for the first time.
I am really getting tired of writing about Tiger Woods, but he keeps giving people, especially idiots like me, new reasons to keep him in the news well past his sale date. This time, of course, involves his withdrawal from an event due to a "twinge" in his recently surgically repaired back.
According to reports which have just surfaced, according to a golf ranking out of Europe, The Bluffs at Ho Tram has made it onto the list of the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World, but this comes as no big surprise to anyone who has played the course or been involved with it since it's inception.
I should have listened to those words. In fact, I should have those words tattooed onto my forehead because it's something I constantly violate at least a few times per year.
It's not often that a golf course can officially open and instantly become the number one course in the country, but The Bluffs at the Grand Ho Tram Strip did just that, and considering the heavyweight competition of Danang GC, Montgomerie Links and Laguna Lang Co, that says a lot about the project.
October is a month associated with Halloween, ie, ghosts, goblins and other assorted things that go bump in the night. As you might expect, this month has been a bit of a horror show for me, simply due to all the traveling.
According to Phil Mickelson, who decided to throw Tom Watson under the bus during a press conference immediately after the loss, it was Tom Watson and only Tom Watson who caused the loss.
People get a toothache and are terrified to go to the dentist because they worry it will hurt. Heck, it already hurts, right? They put off going to the doctor for fear of getting bad news, which simply makes any condition they might have gotten worse later down the road.
Naturally, the social media universe almost went into meltdown, which required Rory to do a little scrambling, but not really apologizing. In fact, he questioned if he had actually said anything wrong and claimed he has said much worse to Tiger's face.
