As my plane touches down in rainy Bergen with an almighty thud, I am abruptly awoken. I come back to earth with a resounding thump. This is not my life, it is that Woods fellow.
This has happened before. I make a note to contact my doctor to change my medication.
If you don’t know your birdies from your bogeys, or are fed up with my blog:
Love Tiger or not, the kid is outstanding! Playing injured and in great pain, Tiger won a final day’s playoff against Rocco Mediate to capture last year’s US Open title. After surgery on his ALC and 8 months off, he has come back in a blaze of glory this year winning at Bay Hill (Palmer’s event) and the Memorial (Nicklaus’s event).
This is a truly awesome achievement for a golfer.
Alas, my own golf game unfortunately requires a bit more dedication and patience. Last year saw a few good rounds but I struggled with my own golf injury.
Having hooked a drive off the fairway, I found my ball sitting 15 yards behind a Y shaped tree in the deep rough. Like most amateur golfers, I did not hesitate to try to hit my ball between the branches of the tree in order to save a stroke.
Addressing the ball with a 4 iron, I gave a mighty whack only to have the ball hit the tree and come right back and nail me in the middle of my forehead. It all happened so fast. I was stunned.
The subsequent lump on my forehead grew to the size and shape of a small penis. My ears were ringing for days.
Thankfully I recovered, but I still cannot remember the names of some of my family members, and the period between 1986 and 1990 draws a complete blank.
Luckily, I got away with a bogey.
Good luck with this year’s US Open Tiger, and may the golf gods be with you.Beaverboosh
