golf in Italy: press revolt squelched by most powerful force in universe
For those of you who have expressed interest, the Great Press Revolt in Italy was undone by a force more powerful than the Italian government and global media combined: I’m talking about wives.
The male golf writers – from England, Germany and the U.S. mainly – who are on a press tour of Italy, spoke openly of revolution, in response to the Italian government’s demands of the writers on the tour.
On the bus ride home, from another 18-hour day, the males sounded like Che Guevara. There was NO WAY they were going to have another five-hour dinner that ended at 2 a.m.. They would go back to their rooms and relax. The wives were there waiting, and within 15 minutes after their arrival, there they were, the golf writers dressed in what passes as formal wear, headed out to another interminable dinner. It would be imposssible to look more sheepish.
I’d like to point out I was the sole revolutionary, since my wife was 10,000 miles away. Look for more stories on golf in Italy coming soon…
