Tiger blames technology. It’s unfair to be fair when it comes to golf clubs.

July 19th, 2004 · No Comments

I see that Tiger Woods and the other pros are blaming club technology for their failure at the Open Golf (thisislondon):

Players at the top of their profession are saying something needs to be done. These players believe that with old equipment the gap between them and the slightly lesser player was wider than it is with new equipment.

So basically — it’s unfair that all players have access to the same modern kit? Not that golf is a real sport anyway — I am totally with Mark Twain on golf.

One solution to Tiger’s problem is to let everyone play with and carry their own antique kit (so we might see some real athletes): a minimum age of 30 years and 2kgs for each club should be suitable. If this can’t be arranged then let all players use this £64.99 golf club set from Argos. I mean how much golf-pro-killing-technology can you put in a 65 quid set? While we are at it: rip down the fences on the private golf clubs around London. Go on be a real golf punk and let the 65-quid blokes and ladettes have a go(lf).

Apologies to my increasing number of friends and colleagues who play golf — but I prefer a good swim or game of poker.
