Thinking too much

  Last night’s Big Bash match offered all of us a lesson on how to combat a pressure situation. The game went down to the last ball and I reckon the bowling team made a huge mistake. Simon Milenko, the bowler for Hobart, was on fire. He almost single handedly got them back into the game. He was…

A better golf course design …

I was thrilled to hear Mike Clayton and team get their first golf course design gig in the USA. I can only imagine the interest this job would have received in the USA golf course design community, so for an Aussie group to get the nod they must be doing something right. Sounds like it’s…

Shoot lower scores!

Here’s a thought provoking interview with Geoff Ogilvy. The bit I like the best is this: Peter Fowler, an outstanding Australian golfer who now plays the European Senior Tour, phoned the great Peter Thomson for advice in the early 1980s. Fowler was struggling to break through, and he asked the five-time British Open champion if…
