Obscenities. Golf’s vernacular is riddled with them. They’re the first thing many of us think, and most say, when they do something wrong on the course. Depending on the situation, it’s then followed by an apology to a partner for letting them down.
So it’s refreshing that ISPS Handa Perth International winner Thorbjorn Olesen was completely honest in what he thought when he hit his tee shot into the trees on the 14th hole of Sunday’s final round.
“My first thought after the tee was probably, F*ck,” Olesen said to laughter from reporters. “Oh, f*ck it. Yeah I was relieved when I got up there and saw I actually had a swing and a line to the green. Hit it too hard, but it was a tricky shot also. And then I was even more pissed off when I saw the next shot I had. It was a tough lie in the rough there. So there was a lot of the fighting going on with that hole.”
And that was all about a par!
Olesen went on to win by three over Victor Dubuissson in Australia.
