Sir Bob still belting it out at 73

LEGENDARY Kiwi golfer Sir Bob Charles will turn 73 during the running of the New Zealand Open this Saturday but the World Golf Hall of Famer hasn’t been talking up his chances of making his second cut in a row at the event. 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. With a sudden cold snap plummeting temperatures and bringing snow and soggy conditions to New Zealand’s south island, Charles didn’t fancy the effect it would have on his circulation or his run off the tee.

Top 10 Golf Balls

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. So there is a choice out there. The chief stand out is of course a man named Tiger Woods, who you can’t have missed using Nike One Platinum balls.
