Win MFS Australian Open tickets!

Now Golf Australia does not condone it, but it happens to the best of us at times. Last month we asked you to tell us about your biggest golfing dummy spit. We received a lot of great responses but decided Andrew Dawson of Newcastle, New South Wales provided the most amusing moment of ignominy. “Six weeks after my hip replacement, I told my wife I was going to play my comeback game on the weekend. She said “Don&apost be stupid, you are not!” I threw my golf bag down the driveway, thus scattering clubs, balls and tees for the all the neighbours to see.” Congratulations Andrew on winning a box of Srixon golf balls (which hopefully don&apost end up bouncing down your driveway!) Another response we loved was from Lorrie Bishop of Croydon, Victoria: “On a fairly high handicap, I wanted to play golf like the pros and after four putting a green, I threw my putter about 10 metres, just missing my husband! Since then I have been very good and I don&apost throw my clubs anymore – now I just mutter under my breath!” This month we are giving away a pair of tickets to a day of your choice at the MFS Australian Open in Sydney or the MFS Women&aposs Australian Open in Melbourne AS WELL AS, a deluxe hardcover book entitled “The Champions and The Courses They Played”. Penned by Terry Smith, this book provides an illustrated history of the Australian Open, the Champions and the magnificent venues that have hosted our National Championship. It is a brilliant book and a must-have for any golf enthusiast. The tickets and the book could be yours if you answer the following question in 50 words or less. What is your most memorable moment from the men&aposs or women&aposs Australian Open and why? We will publish the best responses on the website and share them with you in our next edition of E News!
