Retief Goosen at U.So Open: bland dullard or stoic hero?
I can’t make up my mind about Retief Goosen. Is he simply a victim of media indifference or is there just nothing there to write about? You have to admit, he never says much during interviews. Not that that’s bad.
A big night for Goosen is to go out to a Chinese restaurant with his wife and two kids. Nothing bad there either, but certainly nothing to stir the publuc imagination.
His ambivalence doesn’t help any. He always says the lack of attention doesn’t bother him, but in the next sentence he talks about how he uses it for motivation.
Until I’m convinced otherwise, I’ll just assume he’s a great golfer with a moderately dull personality. All that being said, he just seems like the kind of guy you want to root for.

Tiger Woods is the king of the canned responses - even Sergio started learning canned responses in English before developing a personality.
The media too induces cloned responses: "Tell us about 5..." Unless Retief does something extracurricular, we may be stuck with a dull, good golfer personality.
