Golf in Scotland and cycling

It was interesting to hear that Monty was very keen to be captain for a second time, and that he was also supportive of the choice of McGinley. Surprised also that Paul Lawrie had been asked to put his name in the hat, bearing in mind he has a lot of golf left in him. Lets just now hope for a good weather god to help us on the week of the event.
Meanwhile how bad is the sporting fraud that is Lance Armstrong, and how is this damaged road cycling...badly I think and will cast a cloud over the whole sport for some time...what were the organisers of the sport doing at the time??
I feel sorry for those who competed without that advantage.

Golf Scotland

So glad to see Rory's not bothered by the money.....seriously please I love this golfer but that is not the right way to describe that deal...he is sorted for life, just say so and best of luck..pleased for him
I hope now his clubs will work for him, as well as the Titleist's did...not easy changing clubs.

Golf on tour

Well played Louis and his win in Durban takes him to fourth in the world.....masters this year??also well played to Scott Jamieson as he tried to the death to get back to the winner...he will be disappointed as he had a5 shot lead but Durban has been good to him and solo second is a great start to the new year

Golf Scotland Ryder cup captain

Darren say he wants to play through his tour exemption so could not do both that and captain the Ryder cup team. It would or could be a great three years.
Monty could be favourite. I still like Bernhard for the job. Antibody any thoughts?

Golf at Gleneagles in Scotland.Ryder Cup Venue 2014.

The Queens course at Gleneagles is still undergoing major drainage works on the greens. I am off to take some photos and see what it looks like and how this will affect our membership and golf for this year.
This is a long term programme of work to the Kings and Queens that will try to address the ongoing drainage and green quality, so it will be interesting to see how it looks and how the Kings course is playing.
Hope at some stage to get a game on the Kings.
Will report back

Golf Miguel Jimenez breaks leg

Poor Miguel Jimenez. Broke his leg and is now out of action for at least 5 months which is sad for him. I love his warm up routine on the practice ground, and he is such a character, on and off the course. I will post his routine on my face book...awesome

Ryder Cupgolf

Ryder cup captain is the topic at the moment, and now Bernhard Langer is in the mix, according to sky sports yesterday.
I am a big supporter of Bernhard Langer as Captain, as I think he would be respected by the players.
At the moment lets just hope it stops raining before 2014, or none of us will be here!!
Who ever is captain could not hope for a more motivated group than the team Maria had on the last day. The USA team p,aged very well until the last day and that should be remembered in the context of how small the margins are at that level.
