We lost two famous golf fans this week
GM. This is Easy Pars. The golf newsletter that loves a day off, now and again.
Here’s what we’ve got for you today:
Hope you had a great Labor Day
We lost some good ones last week
Team EU is set (6 Captain’s picks are in)
Happy Belated Labor Day
We hope you all had great barbecues, time with loved ones, and had time for a round during rest from your labors, last week.
Here at EasyPars, we took the day and hope you understand.
From us to you, Happy Labor Day.
It was a rough one
The golf world lost two giants, within a week of one another. No, not pros, but two people who loved golf and most of us loved them.
Of course, we’re speaking of Bob Barker and Jimmy Buffet.
Here’s an article showing Buffet’s love for the game:
And here’s a recent article about Bob’s contribution to one of the most beloved scenes in golf all movies:
So how about a little golf news?
Team EU has finally been set. And the choices are interesting, to say the least! The six people included are:
Ludvig Åberg (a 23 yr old, ranked 90th in the world 👀)
Tommy Fleetwood (makes sense, solid choice)
Nicolai Højgaard (age 22, ranked 78th 👀)
Shane Lowry (not a great Ryder record)
Justin Rose (a Ryder boss, with a 13-8-2 record)
Sep Straka (never been, but a decent choice)
So was team captain, Luke Donald, just thinking Rahm, him, and Rory got it? Not sure!
