The reason is probably that it takes much bigger balls to win a Tenpin Masters.
Jason Belmonte's are huge - far too intimidating to a golfer; hence nobody dares mention his win lmaosmiley.gif

But Adam Scott did well too. Nice long putt when he knew he had to hole it - and did!
Congrats, Adam! puke.gif (couldn't find a green jacket, had to use the green head instead.)

Yep. well done Adam Scott, not only in winning the damn thing but in the gracious way he accepted victory: recognising how luck played its part, and how the other two Aussies were also in the hunt, and also tipping his hat to Greg Norman's influence.

I seem to recall Ian Baker-Finch paid tribute to the role model Greg Norman was when he, Baker-Finch, won his major title all those years ago now (?).

When is, an Aussie winning the US Masters, not important ?

When it's Tenpin Bowling, not Golf

For those members that are keen golf fanatics I would like to report on a new golf course here in Aust that will shortly become recognized as one of the "must play" courses in the world.
Yesterday I played in a charity event on Hamilton Island Golf Course and it was absolutely fantastic.
The course has only been opened a few months and is on Dent Island which is adjacent to Hamilton Island and the whole island is devoted to the course and its infrastructure.The layout was designed by Peter Thomson and the views across the Whitsunday Group are breathtaking.
Greens,tees and fairways are tournament quality but you will need plenty of balls if you cannot keep the ball on the fairway.
I have played on many courses both in Australia and overseas but never on a course that can match this for the scenery and a challenge to golfing skill.
This course is a golfing "must".

Anyone who can hit it out of bounds on the first hole at St Andrews is a special person. I am talking about hitting it out of bounds to the left. Yes, that's left across the first fairway and then further left across the 18th fairway and then over the wall. He was still an Aussie then.

Good luck to him but I wish he had retained his Aussie status. I caddied for him in the NZ Open in about 1982. He finished about 5 shots behind and would have won it apart from the 4th hole. He put a ball out of bounds in all 4 rounds which cost him 8 shots.

During his fall from playing stardom there was a rather cruel joke going round that he had tried suicide but couldnt make the 'cut'.

A nice guy but I wish he could play in this tournament as an Aussie. Let's hope he goes well. It's all in the mind.

Over a period of time I have noticed a lot of Sharescene member like to play golf.

I just noticed a bit of information that surprised me.

The line up for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational on the PGA Tour includes Ian Baker-Finch as a player( 9.02 Tee time). He is playing under an American flag.
