2013 Presidents Cup captains announced: full video

If you’re looking for the full, official 36 minute-long video of the Presidents Cup captains announcement, look no further.

Tim Finchem mentions that from 2015, the PGA Tour will be a little more hands off when it comes to choosing the Presidents Cup captains. The process will be more of a consultation process with players and officials. Makes sense.

Price replaces Norman as Presidents Cup captain

Three-time major winner Nick Price will captain the International Team at the Presidents Cup in 2013.

Nick Price has been appointed captain of the Internatiaonl Team for The Presidents Cup to be played at Muirfield Village, in Columbis Ohio in 2013. Despite Norman expressing his interest in staying in the role he has been over-looked in favour of the three-time major champion from Zimbabwe.

"This has been a moment that I've been waiting for an awful long time," Price said. "It's probably the most excited I've been about anything in the last five or six years. This is a huge honor, and I'm very, very excited about it."

Norman hints at return as Presidents Cup captain

Greg Norman has made what sounded a lot like a pitch to being re-appointed Presidents Cup captain.
In the first public comments about the matter, Greg Norman has hinted he would like to be re-appointed as the captain of the International Team for the 2013 Presidents Cup to be held at Harding Park in San Francisco.
Reportedly, Ernie Els gave him the thumbs up on the Sunday following the loss in Melbourne in November last year, and it sounds a lot like Norman is hoping to be back in charge of the team in 2013.
“If I was asked to do it again, I would sit down and I’d think about it, because there’s a two-year commitment.” Norman said. “The inevitable answer to that question would be leaning more to the positive side than the negative side.”

Movember Inspiration – Noted Golf Architect or 70’s Porn Star

A couple of weeks ago I told you about Noshember… the creative November beard-growing challenge. No Shave November = Noshember.

In response to that post the awesome Aussie Golfer asked, “Is that a rip-off of Movember?” – Turns out Movember is a similar movement… but with a focus on… the mustache. 

Anyone who’s been watching the Presidents’s Cup these last few days has seen some great golf played out on the treacherous fairways of Royal Melbourne.  Stylistically speaking, the uniforms haven’t received much attention … but there’s one particular style statement does have people talking: Australian golf Geoff Ogilvy’s “Movember moment”.  The normally clean-shaven Aussie golfers is currently sporting a prodigious mustache.  Some like it, some loath it but it’s definitely getting attention.

Personally I’m just wondering if Mr. Ogilvy was inspired by the famous golf architect or the iconic porn star.
