So I was watching what I think of as the Bob Hope Desert Classic but is now confusingly called the CareerBuilder Challenge and the commentator said “I can’t do without reading Daily Golf”. So I went in search of this site but found myself instead here, a place called Golf Central Daily. It is worth a look. Above is a picture of my hero Chief Referee of the European Tour John Paramor who they say has built himself a £10 million mansion from the slow play fines soon to be introduced on tour. The site isnt for the guillable. There is a mock up of a retirement announcement on Tigerwoods.com which looks genuine, and in his current health situation anything could be possible. Fooled me for 30 seconds.
On the subject of tournament names the switching at sponsors request is too confusing, particularly when you have been in golf for as long as I have. I sometimes think of the Pebble Beach event as the Crosby! Some of the names are a bit bizarre. So I suggest that pro golf events are identified only by the city they are played in or the host club. That would ensure consistency. So this week we are just in Palm Springs and Abu Dhabi.
