Australia’s Shittiest Golf Gaff Person
May 16, 2022 § Leave a comment
Listening to Greg Norman it is easy to conclude that golf is fundamentally about money and that not much matters beyond that.
Suggesting we all make mistakes, while trying to brush off the murder in 2018 of dissident Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, was as crass a gaff as could be imagined.
But at its heart was a notion that it was more important to consider the £1.6bn of Saudi cash being ploughed into the sport through Norman’s LIV Golf Investments and how it is helping the Australian’s stated aim of “growing the game”.
There is nothing that the Saudis are unable to corrupt and seem to be intent on. The Saudis in Yemen are worse than the Russians in Ukraine. The Saudis war on the Yemeni people is based on a religious disagreement while the Russians are engaged in a form of self defense caused by US meddling in matters and places which have no real bearing on Americans in the US.
