A quote from Duncan M. about the GoKart golf bag;
“The lads I play golf with all agreed it was a smart piece of kit and looked well on the trolley, one of the comedians in our group (we have several) asked when I was going to be sporting the Go Kart Speed suit (Cathy Freeman style)”.
Well, should we? What do you reckon?Add a comment
Well we have two Irishmen punching the air this week. Mr. McDowell’s victory brought another little bit of luck in the way of a new GoKart trolley for Alan Beattie from Bangor, County Down. Well done Alan for predicting Graeme to be the champ in our US Open competition, and getting the closest to his score at -3. We had one other person on the same score, but Alan was triumphant in the sudden death (drawn out of a hat) playoff. Some compensatory GoKart golf balls are on their way to the brave runner up; Alan P. from Ipswich.
And it seemed to us that GMac was a very fitting, composed and natural champ. Who else would chat to a camera striding down the final hole leading a Major, saying “Hi Lads, fun isn’t it!” Bit of a difference from the icy stare of a Tiger when he’s in the Zone. We love it.
Next chance to win a GoKart – the Open at St. Andrews. With the form our lads are in, it could be a good one! We’ll announce the start of the competition as soon as the players sheet is announced. See you there!Add a comment

The motives we have for developing a liking for a particular golfer are numerous and not always related to the obvious fact of them being particularly superior at what they do. They’re all good, but some insinuate themselves into our affections for idiosyncratic reasons which can be as simple as seeing them treat a young fan in a particularly generous way, or wearing an outlandish outfit. For example, I have always followed the career of Australian Craig Parry with particular attention. During the 1990s when I worked on a golf magazine he was one of our instruction editors and I used to go to photoshoots in order to capture his words. Whenever I complimented him on an especially good shot he would reply with a smile, in typically Aussie fashion: ‘Nah mate – piece of p*ss to a trained athlete.’ (more…)
…like the Brabazon at the Belfry. And is that a radioactive rescue wood we spy? Thanks to Iwan J from Gloucester for the photo.

How about a celebrity endorsed Vuvuzela for use at this year’s Ryder Cup? The Fuzzy ZoellerVuzela might catch on. Or if space were a bit tight the FaldoFolding Vuvuzela would be the one to go for.
With thanks to Paul Gorton for this inspired idea. We can’t see any problem with it (as long as they not used on the European player’s backswings of course).

An 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks,’ how do you stay in such great physical condition?’
I’m Italian and I am a golfer,’ says the old guy, ‘and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well.’
‘Well’ says the doctor, ‘I’m sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your Father when he died?’
‘Who said my Father’s dead?’ (more…)Add a comment
The US Open. No, we’re not suggesting you try and sneak on the tee at Pebble Beach next Thursday (has there been an American Maurice Flitcroft?). This is your chance to win a GoKart electric golf trolley, or the equivalent in GoKart goodies, and entering couldn’t be easier.Add a comment
The US Open at Pebble Beach (starts Thursday 17th June). And along with it our US Open comp to win a GoKart by predicting the winner and, if you’re very clever, the winning score. We’ll give you a list of players and some statistics to get your teeth into next week to ease the process, so watch this space.
And for the moment, a little bit of golf scenery titillation to get you salivating;

This week’s news from Martin. In the presence of his Trumpness no less.

If you’re going to have a lucky number, don’t make it 2,375 because that rarely comes up when you’re gambling
In the presence of greatness
I was summoned – it really is the only applicable word – last week, along with a bunch of other journalists, to the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire, where we were granted the privilege of interviewing Donald J Trump, or The Trumpster as I prefer to think of him.
“Don’t play too much golf. Two rounds a day are plenty.”
“A great deal of unnecessarily bad golf is played in this world.”
“If your opponent is playing several shots in vain attempts to extricate himself from a bunker, do not stand near him and audibly count his strokes. It would be justifiable homicide if he wound up his pitiable exhibition by applying his niblick to your head.”
“Never concede the putt that beats you.”
“Moderation is essential in all things, madam, but never in my life have I failed to beat a teetotaler.” (more…)Add a comment
