The fog has yet to clear the mind of Graeme McDowell after his celebrations of retaining the Ryder Cup. It would seem the Northern Irishman has forgot which country he is from. McDowell is confused as to which nation he should support in the 2014 Olympics in Rio, Graeme would prefer a committee to make the decision for him. "The Olympic Committee should either step and tell us either ‘you guys are playing for Ireland’ or ‘you’re playing for Great Britain’,” said McDowell this week. If the IOC can't make the choice for you G-Mac then I suggest Ip dip dip, my blue ship.
Well done to Padraig Harrington for winning the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, a tournament the Irishman wasn't even invited too. Harrington was a late edition to the competition after Erine Els cried off through injury, McDowell and Tiger Woods, the first two reserves both had better offers. For the two days of the tournament Padraig was looking great in Bermuda.
Not looking good in Bermuda (shorts) was Lee Westwood. On the first day in Antalya at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final Westwood opted for a shorter stride. Since the event The Telegraph has run a poll on whether professionals should be allowed to wear shorts. My opinion is yes, pros should wear shorts and thigh high leather boots and pink crop tops. Here is the link for the poll http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/golf/9598033/Poll-Lee-Westwood-dares-to-bear-his-legs-but-should-professional-golfers-be-allowed-to-wear-shorts-on-tour.html
Rumours have been circulating this week that Rory McIlroy is prepared to switch from Titleist to Nike in a deal said to be worth £156 million. Rory has played down the hype and is trying to concentrate on his golf. If Rory is to emulate the great Tiger Woods then what better way to achieve this than donning the same logo of the sportswear giant. Lets hope he doesn't go down like his hero too.
