Figure It Out

by Brian Hewitt

Floridian Billy Horschel just made 10 million partially tax deferred dollars for winning the FedEx Cup plus another $1.44 million in cash for simultaneously finishing first Sunday at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

His pregnant wife is due soon with the couple’s first child.

“Baby” will never want for a new pair of shoes.

Meanwhile in women’s golf, even if you’re uncomfortable with the unilateral, commercially driven decision to declare the Evian Championship a “fifth major,” you must give props to the unprecedented “major” 61 returned by winner Hyo Joo Kim Thursday in France, of all places.

Actually the French (who knew?) are quietly and finally emerging from the wreckage of Jean van de Velde and burgeoning into an international golf force with a model junior development push. Paris will host a Ryder Cup in four years.

Speaking of the Ryder Cup – and isn’t that all we’ll be doing until the end of the month? – the Americans have their wish. Europe is oficially the favorite for the matches that begin in Scotland a week from Friday.

The Yanks have a “dog” in the fight because the Euros have dominated them for more than a decade. And now the U.S. is the “dog” in the fight.

The only certainty in any Ryder Cup is the winner will be the team whose players make more important putts in the Sunday singles. And for anybody perspicacious enough to correctly predict who those players will be there is a high-paying job waiting for you picking stocks on Wall Street or, if you prefer, a prominent profiling post at Scotland Yard.

Your first clue is two words long:

Ian Poulter.

A Letter from the Publisher

On behalf of the team that publishes GlobalGolfPost each week, I want to thank you for your support. It means a great deal to us that you take time each week to read our weekly golf news publication.

When we launched just 16 months ago, our goal was to deliver golf news, information and analysis to serious golfers around the world. And we were then, as we are now, determined to take advantage of all that the digital platform has available. Your response has been overwhelmingly supportive, and we appreciate that very much.

From the beginning, the journalism side of our enterprise clicked, quickly. Having such esteemed golf writers like Lewine Mair, Paul Mahoney, Dermot Gilleece and John Hopkins join us made it easy to deliver the kind of golf content you want.

And now the business side of our enterprise is starting to work well, which usually happens if you get the content right. But here's where I want to ask for your help:

I'd like you to tell all your golf friends about us. Perhaps talk up the Post at your golf course. Get your regular foursome to sign up for a free subscription. Perhaps even send an e-mail to all your golf pals and encourage them to give us a try.

The key to our success now is to grow our audience of serious golfers throughout the UK. I hope you will take a moment to help us continue to grow and delight you.

Fairways & Greens,

Jim Nugent

P.S. Just a reminder, the Post is free, and your friends can sign up for it at
