Another Retief Goosen choke gets overlooked: Where's the ogling Mario?
Still, Goosen shooting a final round 73 - including a nifty four-bogey back nine 39 - at the HSBC Championships in Shanghai shouldn’t be overlooked. And not just because it continues to validate something I wrote almost 18 months ago.
After Goosen’s Greg-Norman worthy meltdown at Pinehurst in the 2005 U.S. Open, only one golf voice had the courage to declare Retief Goosen done as a major player. And he has been, not coming close to an important win since or even a minor one on the PGA Tour this season.
This blog isn’t about noting my amazing track record that foolish readers doubted (see Wie, Michelle.) Not completely at least.
No, it’s to wonder what happened to all those Goosen fans. You know the ones who had his back with indignation after that original post. Even TravelGolf.com’s self-admitted Goosen ogling Jennifer Mario hasn’t had a word to say about her man.
Suddenly, Goosen’s not so interesting when he’s sending his shot on 18 into water?
It turns out that Goosen’s backers are as mentally weak as the state of his game. That even makes me a little sad.

Didn't you also predict Phil Mickelson was a fluke who wouldn't win more than one major? You seem to have omitted that in your "Yippee for me!" blog.
Paula Creamer would have been in contention if she could have dropped some three footers in the four and a quarter inch hole. Her tee to green performance was excellent with many makeable birdie putts that she failed to convert.
Lorena putted like she was aiming at a 55 gallon drum in the ground and her ball striking was quite breathtaking. Winning by ten strokes is "thumpin" the opposition.
Back to this Retief guy, isn't he one of those second tier Euro Tour golfers?
If she plays this well at the ADT, she could stuff an additional $1,000,000 in her purse for the season.
