Sports Illustrated Curse; TravelGolf.com Blessing
You’ve all heard of the Sports Illustrated Curse, right? The one that says when you’re featured on the cover of that esteemed periodical, you’re bound to lose. Or get hurt. Or both.
Well, it appears we here at TravelGolf.com have the opposite effect. We’ll reverently (if not humbly) refer to it as the TravelGolf.com Blessing.
First, I pointed out that the Nike SasQuatch was being used to win a disproportionate number of PGA Tour and world events. Since then, Chad Campbell, Stephen Ames, Rory Sabbatini, and now even Chris Couch have won while wielding the SQ. (Not to mention Tiger Woods, who could probably win using a driver made from a dried dog turd tied on the end of a stick. So he doesn’t count.)
Then I wrote about Stuart Appleby’s development, use, and promotion of The Leaderboard swing and fitness trainer. And what happens? Appleby wins for a second time this year, and his fellow countrymen Aaron Baddeley, Geoff Ogilvy and Rod Pampling – who all use The Leaderboard – also win PGA events.
Badds was twice-blessed, in fact, when I wrote about the stylish line of Ecco golf shoes, for which the young Aussie is a spokesman.
Makes you say, “Hmmm,” doesn’t it?
Oh, we might not offer a football-shaped phone for reading us. But I’d take a blessing over a curse any day.
Badds looks bad (in a good way) in Ecco’s stylish shoes.
