Gordon Brand Jnr 1958-2019

So many of us have been shocked this morning to hear of the sudden passing of Gordon Brand Jnr, who was playing on the StaySure tour only recently and commentating for radio at the Open Championship just two weeks ago. He was a very fine player, feisty competitor and proud Ryder Cup player.

It feels very odd when golfers who I have grown up with – though a decade or more ahead – start to leave us. The loss of Seve Ballesteros felt very wrong, losing Payne Stewart was a shock and around this time last year the upsetting loss of Bruce Lietzke. But when a passing is so sudden and unexpected as Gordon’s was it is very sad. Condolences to his family and his many friends on tour.

Presidential seal eagle clutches golf clubs

President Trump has sacked the employee who re designed the Presidential Seal of Office which had the eagle clutching a set of golf cluns.

The eagle’s left talon clutches not arrows, but a bundle of golf clubs. Remember the olive branch that is traditionally held in the right talon? Now it’s a wad of cash. And wait. Why does the eagle have two heads instead of one? Turns out this is exactly the way the eagle in Russia’s coat of arms looks, a not-so-subtle nod to the president’s deep ties to that country. In case that wasn’t blatant enough, instead of “E pluribus unum,” the eagle’s banner reads “45 es un títere,” Spanish for “Trump is a puppet.” Really.
