Westwood and DonaldBy Golfrefugees

So Lukozade is World No 1. Some tourists at Wentworth thought a section of the crowd were booing Donald. But they were just shouting ‘Luuuuuuuuuke, Luuuuuuke, after each shot, which sounded a little bit like ‘booooooo booooooooo’.
Record crowds of 93,000 over four days attended the flagship European tour event.
Despite all of the money spent on the West course, I’m not sure if it’s any better than the old Wentworth. At least golfers then had a chance of an eagle, eagle finish. With the new re-constructed 18th, the playoff between Westwood & Donald was all down to a pitching wedge shoot-out.
For you and I it now costs a cool £275 to play around of golf at Wentworth, situated in leafy Surrey, also know as the Stockbroker belt. That equates to £2.75 per shot for me.
At that price, I’d rather have a week’s holiday in Torremolinos.
