Charles turned the competition on its ear last time, finishing T23, twice shooting better than his age, coming home third best Kiwi and becoming the oldest player in history to make the cut at a major PGA Tour event.

ACCORDING to the latest rankings, five out of the top ten players on the US Tour use Titleist golf balls. That might give Titleist, who have just released their new Pro V1 model 2009 range, something to crow about. But then again, not one of the world’s top three golfers use them.
