Wish everybody can enjoy golf in 2011
We are greeting a bright, hopeful new year when anything seems to be achieved as compared to disturbing 2010.
Last year such accidents as Yeonpyeong Island battle in Korea froze the mind of the people already frozen by economic downturn as firmly as the cold winter. In addition, Tiger Woods’ sex scandal ended with divorce after all.
The golf industry was also frozen to break down by the cold wind from Tiger.
In the last event in 2010, Tiger experienced the sorrow of reversal; however, the writer believes that it was an intended defeat by Tiger and management teams.
Thin-faced with beards after a family suffering, Tiger stood in front of his fans at the 18th green for an extended game on the last day of the event. As he missed his putting, an unimaginable thing came true.
After all Tiger is a human being; he revealed his week points as a famous athlete, a father in a family, and a man who was troubled from sex scandal.
Maybe that was why the galleries surrounding the 18th green at Sherwood Country Club sincerely cheered up Tiger.
A sorrowful eclipse may have aroused a pity among them.
How would the galleries have responded if Tiger had won an overwhelming victory as usual?
It is obvious that they would have pointed their fingers of blame saying “How shameless he is!”
The year 2010 ended as such.
I wish I could see an uppercut ceremony roaring like a tiger instead of weak Tiger.
In addition, I want to see many Korean PGA players raising a winner’s trophy this year.
I wish the seven Koreans including K.J. Choi, Charlie Wi, Y.E. Yang, Kevin Na, Bio Kim, and Sung-hoon Kang would show good performance so that we could hear whoops of victory resounding at golf courses in the U.S.
Seung-yul Noh, playing in European Tour, is expected to play more games at PGA Tour this year, thereby providing Korean fans with much fluttering, moving moments.
As New Year wishes, I hope wealth and health would be widespread in the world.
I wish our readers are full of thanks and have all the situations for more enjoyable golf.
In the New Year’s new morning
