While you're on the subject of South Africa, their wines are also somewhat impassive on the surface, but have tremendous complexity once you get to know them.

The Western Cape has fabulous wineries and ridiculous scenery.

A word of advice though, when you go to Africa, consider shipping your wine rather than check it in your bags. Two of the three wines I brought home got busted in Atlanta's airport and stained all my clothes.

But the wine is still delicious after you wring it out of cotton straight into your mouth.

There are two Immelman's. One is that nervous wreck you saw on TV today, putting on the green jacket. The other is that steely golfer you saw play 18 holes with a poker face that's the envy of Las Vegas. I would find the contradiction fascinating, if I watched the Masters, if they weren't so sexist.

Ha, that's a laugh. Here we have a silly broad who didn't watch the Masters because they were "sexist." I'm sure you were sorely missed.

Hey, World Golf readers! At long last we know the identify of Judge Scales: membership chairman at Augusta National.

If a club has to be 'sexist' in order to offer just 4 minutes of commercials per hour during their tourney, while providing outstanding online coverage...hey, fair trade!!!

Through sheer dumb luck, you raise an interesting point. If there were more commercials, would you have noticed the slow play? Probably not.

All of the tournaments are really slow these days - those played in the US rarely finish before midnight for me, so I'm always conscious of it (especially if I have an early tee-time on Monday morning). However, one advantage I do have is that the majors are shown on BBC channel in the UK which allows no commercials whatsoever. Instead, during your limited commercials this time, we had Ken Brown, on-course analyst (you won't remember him) throwing golf balls over his shoulder to demonstrate the cruel slopes of the greens, and showing the different cuts of rough around the greens, none of which one can really appreciate otherwise, plus of course, good old Peter Aliss with grouchy commentary. "Oh come ON, just hit the ball". "If Augusta can have certain restrictions, why can't it ban people who shout "Geddinthehole"?

Wheee-OH.....you mean the Judge got promoted from Bushwood? ;) I thought he did a pretty fair job trying to keep Rodney out. Maybe he'll be as successful at Augusta!**

Personally - I think ANYONE shouting 'get in the hole' needs to be stuffed into one and left. It is one the worst things to happen to tournament golf EVER.



** SPECIAL NOTE - in case RonMon is lurking, that's called "satire"...it's something grown-up people with "traditional language skills" use to express themselves. It's even taught at writer's workshops, in case you'd care to attend one! *big smile*
