Thompson in NatPost on Year in Golf, Jim Rutledge

Well golf season is back in full swing — at least in Hawaii and California. That means I’m back writing for the National Post about the game, and my first two pieces appeared today. The great news is the paper now allows you, my fine G4G readers, to actually access the articles online.

So unlike past years, when these articles were stuck behind a firewall, you can read them regardless of whether you buy the paper or not. How cool is that?

Anyway, the first article, “Memorable Year for Golf Watchers” can be found here, while my piece on Rutledge is here. Enjoy.

  • An interesting thing to follow is will there be any Canadian players at the Prez Cup in Montreal? Right now Ames is #16 and Weir is #20 – they are both behind Yong-Eun Yang. If they don’t move up it would even be hard to make the case that they deserve to be a Captain’s pick.

  • I would tend to disagree Wayne. Did Darren Clarke deserve a captains pick to the last Ryder Cup? Also, I would be shocked if Tiger and Mickelson play for the US team two weeks after the Fedex Cup is decided and the crazy schedule they must play for it. Therefore to avoid the disaster of having no Tiger, no Phil and no Canadians while holding it in a very fickle sports market of Montreal I would bet there will be at least one Canadian on the team.
