TIGER WOODS: whose race is it anyway?

The year is 1996. After his third straight US Amateur win, Tiger Woods turned pro and then won two PGA Tour events in that year. In the immediate aftermath of that, Tiger’s father, Earl Woods made a statement. It was to prove a seminal statement – and prophetic too. He declared that Tiger would do more than any other man in history to change the course of humanity. He qualified that by saying he would do more than Gandhi, Buddha and Nelson Mandela because Tiger would have a larger forum than…

THE SECRET LIFE OF TIGER WOODS

Notah Begay says it and when Notah Begay says it, sit up and take notice. He says it is Tiger’s last outing, and he’s right. It is Tiger’s swansong. There will be no second coming after this. And Notah thinks he can win. At least one win this year and he expects him to peak in the springtime. It may be just a matter of getting some more tournaments under his belt but the question remains: is this a good buddy-bolstering remark or the hard-headed opining of a seasoned golf analyst? And who…

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright…

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright… I have wanted to write a piece on this golfer for some time, not because I am a sports reporter or even an amateur in golf punditry. My rating in the grand scale of those who know a thing or two about golf is well below par but I have always followed this golfer, not because I love him – that would be an overstatement – but because he fascinates me. He fascinates me in much the same way as a moth is drawn to the light: it’s a star-studded flight full of aerial…

MIRROR, MIRROR on the wall, who is the worst golfer of them all?

Golfers. There are none in my immediate family. I mean zilch, diddly-squat, zero. I should know. I’ve done the research. I don’t mean a quick flip on Ancestry.com for a feverish five minutes. I mean the kind of research that ended in two books and many tales of ado about something – but no golfers. I have no idea why I might have got this rogue gene but, Divine Intervention or not, someone had a great laugh when my blueprint was written. I like to be clear about things. I get confused very…

Questions, Questions.... - YourAutumnYears

This week someone suggested that I should become an agony uncle for people in their autumn years. Ha! Like, I have any sensible solutions to people’s ageing issues. But it did coincide with me answering questions about ageing on Quora.com. So, in that vein and as you guys have been asking me questions – I’ve … Read More

SIGNIFICANT OTHERS AND THE BRITISH MASTERS

I have two “significant others” in my life. The first is my son Ciaran, my firstborn child and now a grown man. Last Friday, he was my chauffeur and chaperon for the day as I headed for Colchester Hospital and a date with a planned foot operation. At 07.30, we arrived on the ward, me nil by mouth and dying for a cup of decaf tea and Ciaran (that's Kieran for those of you who are Anglicised) looking like it was the first sunrise he’d seen in his entire 32 years. I was in Colchester's…

My Cup runneth over with the Sandbaggers Cup of Slow Play

There are few things in life that rattle my calm or shake my cage too much but the game of golf has managed to supply a couple of words that send me into a flat fried frenzy and make me see life through a red mist. It’s a subject I lived in blissful unawareness of for all of my years until I took up with the beautiful game and, even when it first fell upon my hemisphere, I paid only a light but respectful cap-tipping nod to it. However, I have come to hate it, more so because it is a matter…

RIO! A NEW DEPARTURE FOR GOLF

I like getting something off my chest and when I do, I like it to be early doors. Don’t want anyone labouring under any illusions as to what I want to say, so here it is: my take is that golf doesn’t need showcasing in the Olympics. It’s become a dirty business. Not golf. The Olympics. The IOC has derogated from its responsibility in dealing with performance enhancing drug users in many of the participating sports and has done so at the expense of good, clean athletes and viewers alike. I…

SO BE IT: POLITICS, SPORTS, MADNESS, MAYHEM AND NO GOLF

Oh my, what a rollercoaster few weeks I’ve witnessed. Unprecedented. Unchartered. That’ll be us here in the newly formed island of Brexitland, formerly known as Great Britain. We’ve long lost the Great and it now looks like we’re losing Britain. Gone off the EU map. Discarded by Obama as the “special” friend of America. And soon to be dis-United as Scotland remains set to stay in the other Union under Angela and Juncker. I have long been an admirer of that First Flower Of Scotland, Nicola…

THE GOLDEN RATIO OF GOLF

There is a golden ratio to be found everywhere you look and it seems this ratio has been littered across the field of life from time immemorial. Epic epochs of the golden number have spiralled by and, if you’re a smart looker, you will have found those very patterns under your noses in the flowers you smell, in the faces you see, in nature’s formations. Spirals, rectangles, circles all punting their pi and Phi in relentless, irrational fractions that would cause the average Joe Bloggs, Fred…

THE BATTLE OF OAKMONT: THE US OPEN AND DUSTIN JOHNSON

Oakmont: that’s where I am off to next in my golf ramblings. If you are not familiar with that name and what’s happening on the surface of this little slice of the planet, stop reading now. You are not in love with the game of golf. Be gone…pretty please because I was brought up to be polite. My heart wants Rory to win. He’s from my home turf and knows his shamrocks from his clovers. He’s at home on the forty shades of greens (Thank you, Johnny Cash, for this earworm song that has haunted my…
