I started playing golf in the mid 1990’s. That’s around the same time the young Tiger Woods turned pro. He rose to the top of the world ranking in June 1997 making the fastest-ever ascent to no. 1. And looking at the most recent world ranking from last week – he is still on top. […]
All of us have an idol or role model, and although not all are prepared to grant we all have our favorite player(s), whose interesting moves we follow relentlessly. I started to play golf when I was 11 years old and still remember very well the first major tournament I watched from TV. It was…

All of us have an idol or role model, and although not all are prepared to grant we all have our favorite player(s), whose interesting moves we follow relentlessly. I started to play golf when I was 11 years old and still remember very well the first major tournament I watched from TV.
I did not recognize Els before the U.S. Open but I sure did recognize Monty! And why’s that so? Check out the picture of world’s funniest driver head cover (below). I bought that one on the same day when I got green card – license to play golf in Finland. Lost the head cover later, but still has Jesper Parnevik’s head still covers my spoon.
Driver’s Head Cover! It’s Monty!

That’s right. Those guys were my golf heroes. Like yesterday I remember Pavin’s fish fingers under the nose and diamond-precise putts.
First time when I cried a little because of golf was 1999, U.S. Open again. Stewart’s bold character, plus-fours, knee socks and MLB hat got a little boy’s attention. When Stewart holed his putt on the 18th green at Pinehurst leaving Phil Mickelson behind by one, I experienced a touching moment! Our great sadness, Stewart’s life ended only months later in targic plain crash.
Payne Stewart (1957-1999) was my golf hero.
