Our fun aerospace engineers, Bret and his son Steve, were recounting how they were watching the end of The US Open a few years back and a player missed a four foot putt on the final green abysmally, and there was a Scottish commentator on CBS who seemingly just said ‘well that’s enough to make you slap your grannie’. Our guys had to replay the shot a few times to affirm that this was what the guy actually came out with and were in stitches over it. I must admit I have never heard such a knockout line and it’s not the sort of thing that Sir Nick Faldo is going to come out with.
Talking of Sir Nick Faldo, we had a BMW tournament recently and one of the guys had the honour of playing with him. Except it turned out to be less than memorable as Sir Nick introduced himself to the three BMW executives on the first tee, in the final round of their costly sponsored event with the line ‘ I don’t give advice and I don’t talk’. Absolutely incredible behaviour from the man, especially as I’m sure that BMW were paying a good few quid to have him there in the first place. Needless to say I don’t think he was invited back.
Poor show Sir Nick.
