Racist? Or just plain stupid? Martin Vousden considers.

Thought for the Day:Hard work pays off in the future, laziness pays off now

Runaway mouth
There is no doubt that Steve Williams, erstwhile caddy to Tiger Woods, is a boorish, arrogant, obnoxious, egotistical prat but racist? I don’t think so. You will almost certainly have noticed the media storm that has been whipped up by Williams’ insensitive, stupid remark at a private dinner during last week’s WGC HSBC Championship in China but just in case you missed it, while accepting a tongue-in-cheek award for ‘Celebration of the Year’, Williams said of Woods: ‘It was my aim to shove it right up that black asshole.’ He was talking about his first taste of victory on the bag of Adam Scott, shortly after being sacked by Woods, when he said in the immediate aftermath of the triumph that it was: ‘The best win of my career.’ But to put it in context, the caddy dinner is always a pretty raucous, irreverent occasion in which bad language and offensive comments are (more…)

Padraig – if it ain’t broke….Vousden on swing surgery.

Nov 07 2011

Thought for the Day
Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

There’s odd, and then there’s Irish
I have remarked before on the peculiar nature of pro golfers who insist on changing things that ain’t broke – specifically, the golf swing with which they have just won a truckload of money and several titles. No-one exemplifies this baffling phenomenon more graphically than Padraig Harrington, who won three majors in 13 months and in the process became the first European to lift the Wanamaker Trophy since 1930, and the first to successfully defend the claret jug since 1906, which amounts to a pretty impressive roll-call of achievement. Despite all this, Padraig decided that his method of swinging the club was in such disarray that he needed to go back to the drawing board, dismantle what was clearly functioning extremely well and try something new, in the hope of even greater success (although what would be measured as greater success than three majors in just over a year is hard to imagine).

In consequence, since that last major win, the 2008 US PGA Championship, Padraig has won bugger all and slipped from 3rd in the world to 78th. He can’t even taste victory in his home championship, the Irish Open, which tends to showcase a field that, in comparison to most Tour events is, how can I put this delicately – pretty sub-standard. And in the middle of this seemingly inexorable (more…)

‘Tis the season to be Knobbly, Tra-la-la-la-la-la,la-la-la.

Nov 05 2011

Sing along!  It’s that time of year again when we’re in danger of coming over all festive. Out with the hobnobs in with the mince pies.  Well not quite…but it is time to launch our Christmas offer.

This year we’re getting bossy.  We want you to play a bit more golf. Okay so it’s getting a bit murky and squidgy and those lovely well struck three woods aren’t running quite how they did in July (like half the distance? Is that fair?) BUT winter golf can be fun all the same. Just think, when next April comes you’ll be all limber and ready, and all your couch potato friends will be trying to find some sort of swing.

So here’s our cunning plan.  Buy a GoKart between now and the beginning of January and we’ll give you a set of hedgehog wheels absolutely free.  They usually cost £61.  Golf courses are allowing electric trolleys in winter more and more now as long as they’re fitted with winter wheels.  So you have no excuse.  On with the thermals and off you trot!  Click here to visit the shop and you’ll be knobbly in no time at all.

And our favourite hedgehog joke? Hedgehogs. Why can’t they just share the hedge?
