Bruce Devlin should shut up!

Bruce Devlin has some balls for criticizing Greg Norman about not playing in the Australian Open. Devlin called Norman selfish and said he does not help the sport of golf in Australia. Devlin also said Norman should do more publicly to thank Aussies who have supported him in the past.

Here's what Norman had to say, "Considering I've played the Australian Open 23 times in my career, I have supported the event as well as any other Australian professional."

Norman has not played in the Aussie Open, which happens to coincide with Thanksgiving, in 4 years. "It's my life and I like to spend time with my family. My children are in college in the U.S. The only time they come home are for long weekends like Thanksgiving."

When I think of Australia and golf the first thought that comes to mind is koala bears, but after that it's Greg Norman. Bruce Devlin you should shut up and not criticize the man that put Australian golf on the map.

Hopefully Greg will read this and invite me to play at his golf club up in Hobe Sound The Medalist.

I agree with you on this one mate. Greg has done so much they should have moved it away from Thanksgiving so the Shark could play in it.

And if you are ever in Melbourne, Australia I'll take you down to Sanctuary Lakes one of his other courses.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
