BP has just announced their latest attempt to stop the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico has failed. They were trying to block it with, among other things, golf balls. We’ve an idea why there’s still a leak; they must have been using cheap two-piece balls. If they’d used good quality synthetic balata covered balls it would have stopped. Just a thought.

Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy
Putting it in perspective
You have possibly never heard of Erica Blasberg but her memorial service is being held this coming Wednesday, May 19, and will no doubt be attended by a number of LPGA golfers, for Erica was a member of that Tour since 2004. This was her sixth season as a pro golfer but she only managed one victory, and that was on the Duramed Futures Tour. Because of her outstanding amateur record, great things were expected of a young woman (she died aged 25) who was both admired for her ability to play golf, and liked for her courtesy, charm and thoughtfulness, although some have suggested she could be introspective and difficult to truly get to know.

Yes, you might just want to shout at us in a couple of hours, but we’ll risk it…we dare you to come along and try the GoKart Summer Puzzle. You stand a chance of winning a GoKart (or the equivalent in goodies if you already have one) – but we also promise you a brain fizzing journey of epic mental proportions. Some of it is logic, some of it general knowledge – but all of it is downright devious.

Is it possible to be totally partial?
For a pro golfer to shoot 62 over one of the toughest courses on the US Tour would always be worthy of celebration. But to do it in the final round, for a most improbable victory – in fact your debut win in America, at the age of 20 – is almost too much to take in. So it is right and fitting that Rory McIlroy should probably wake up tomorrow morning with an almighty hangover because today (May 4th) is his 21st birthday, so he can now legally drink in the USA.
