Smokin’ on Tour, Watson, Free Shoes and Tiger’s New Deal

by Jeff Skinner

Robert Garrigus is coming off a great U.S. Open where he tied for third place.  In an in depth interview with Dave Shedloski in Golf World he gives us a perspective on his life and the depths from where he came.  Too much drinking, partying and even some pot smoking while playing on The Nationwide Tour was how he spent his early years.  He’s come a long way. (Thanks to Ryan Ballengee at Pro Golf Talk.)

We at Links Life Golf love all things “Watson” as in Bubba or Tom.  Jay Busbee at Devil Ball Golf has a sneak peek at David Feherty’s next show which features Tom Watson.  Anytime Watson talks we listen.

Rory McIlroy and Yani Tseng are two golfers that are leading the charge of young golfers rewriting history in professional golf.  The Armchair Golfer has compiled an interesting list of the youngest major winners and their major totals.

Thanks to the cool of Fred Couples the hottest shoe on the market is the Ecco Golf Street.  Freddy has made those little nubs looks so cool and comfortable.  The Aussie Golfer is running a contest where you can win a $250 voucher from Ecco to buy yourself some new, cutting edge footwear.  Check it out, “you gotta be in to win it.”

And finally, there is some good news for Tiger Woods.  He has signed his first new endorsement deal since Tiger-Gate hit the fan.  Stephanie Wei at Wei Under Par takes a tongue in cheek look at his new deal for a Japan based heat rub. She and even has a picture.  Good time, good times.
