I fell asleep!

Woke up this morning to numerous comments on what a sad finish that was to the PGA Championships. As I had missed the closing of it I had to rely on second hand information. I do wonder if anyone outside golf can ever understand this game? On Swedish radio I heard a reporter say ‘in the final of the PGA Championships’, which does not sound at all bad in English but in Swedish he was talking about it as the final of a whole series of PGA Championships. Can they not get the staff nowadays??? Or is it just golf that is so different?

The football world is arguing over the use of video and the golfer loses the Championship by touching the ground with his club… And he took it right on the chin! Of course he did not even think about it as a bunker. Rules are rules though and in golf they are strict if not always easy to understand.

Well done Martin Kaymer though who has just developed into a fabulous player!
