Gonzales and Golf

This summer is whipping by and I’ve often been too busy to make it to the writing section of my blog. I’m still reading don’t worry. It is far more relaxing to read than to write. In my opinion.

I have to make mention of the total embarrassment of the Gonzales situation. The man is nothing more than a cartoon and is helping to make out government look look like the ultimate silly cartoon it is.

The Economist declared Hilary the winner of the debate. Cooper declared Obama the winner.

Having seen the clips I can’t say. Hilary looked ready for the questions. Obama’s answer to the particular question everyone is harping on, although apparently naive, has to be considered as more the general direction he wants to go in, a direction which some might prefer.

Drug testing policy on the way for PGA

Joe Ogilvie was on the range at the Angus Glen Golf Club yesterday as one player after another came up to congratulate him on his first PGA Tour win, at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee last week. Ogilvie enjoyed the backslapping and was soon addressing another timely matter: whether tour professionals use performance-enhancing drugs.

Gary Player ignited the most recent discussion last week during the Open Championship in Carnoustie, Scotland, when he said, unequivocally, that one player told him he’s using drugs. Player suspects that at least 10 players are.

“I might be way out,” Player said. “It’s definitely not going to be lower. It might be a hell of a lot more.”

Ogilvie, a player representative on the tour’s policy board, has been party to discussions as the organization tries to develop a testing program. He was surprised by Player’s provocative declarations.

“If he knows someone who is a tour member and who is taking something, he should name the player,” Ogilvie said. “He might be mixing up Viagra with a performance-enhancing drug. If that’s the case, more than 10 players are taking it.”
