On the back of the famous 2010 Ryder Cup victory by the European team, led by captain Colin Montgomerie at Celtic Manor on Monday, this clip from the Oakley Armchair TV series gives an insight into the wonderful prowess of one of the European heroes, Ian Poulter.
Poulter said after the event that his point in the singles was never in doubt, “I said in the morning on the range I would deliver a point. I am pretty passionate about this format, I love the Ryder Cup. I’ve watched so many matches over the years. I love it from the first tee, the songs, and being with all 11 team-mates. It truly is the best tournament in the world, and it always will be.”
Print a poster of your favourite golf moment in history! It’s easy inspiration with online printing.
How do you pick just the right single image for mounting on your wall? With so many pictures available to be viewed on the internet, not to mention the ease with which we can capture our own using a digital camera, combined with the access to pictures that our friends on social networks provide for us, it can be hard to choose just what is worth preserving. When adorning the wall of your office at work, perhaps, or your study or workshop at home (or maybe the downstairs loo, or any other space for that matter), often the ideal item is an eye-catching poster, one that has personal significance.
Given the mind-boggling convenience that online printing provides, the choice can seem overwhelming. For each of us, however, there is usually a way to narrow it down. For some, it will be a pivotal sporting moment, i.e. lovers of showjumping will choose a favourite horse or rider whose grace, harmonious movement and winning determination are all summed up together in a particular moment when leaping a fence during a top competition. The football fan will seek an image depicting their star player at full tilt on the football field at the split second when football boot and ball make contact, the vanquished opponent looking crushed and yet at the same time impressed just within the frame.
For golfers, the ‘Ancient Game’ can be a religion, its champion protagonists, great heroes. Nothing is more uplifting to the true fan than that incomparable shot, most probably a teeing off moment, when the most admired golfer in one’s personal gallery of all-time greats completes the follow-through, club aloft and a distant look in the eyes telling the viewer what an impressive distance the ball just travelled.
Online print services enable you direct from your PC to order in poster size a great copy of that dream photograph ready for framing, whether taken originally from a snapshot of your own or from a professional photograph. Typical high-spec suppliers use top-quality offset and short-run digital printing with a range of sizes on offer up to 24” to 36”. Colours and finish are vibrant and sharp. It is all you need in order to preserve that glorious sporting moment!
Dom Joly’s Golfing Greats, Gaffes & Goofs DVD is to released on 1st December
The DVD is a collection of great golf, including some fantastic hole-in-one shots, some funny mishaps, including Richard Finch falling into the water at this year’s Irish Open; and some humorous clips including animals on golf courses. Animals include a vicious duck attacking a golfer attempting to help her stranded ducklings out of a bunker, a stubborn swan, a thieving seagull and a cheeky monkey!
This collection of golf clips is introduced and narrated by funny man Dom Joly. It also includes new golf sketches with familiar Dom Joly humour, as he does his best to annoy everyone on the golf course. In character, Joly shows his disgust for ladies being allowed to play golf, and old people ‘getting in the way’ and smelling of “wee”!
Best known for his tv comedy series Trigger Happy, this humorous DVD is released just in time for Christmas, and follows Dom Joly’s very amusing and successful, Letters To My Golf Club, which was released in 2007.
Dom Joly’s Golfing Greats, Gaffes & Goofs DVDis approximately 60 minutes long and a perfect Christmas stocking filler for any golfer with a good sense of humour. RRP £19.99
This classic comedy sketch was posted by John Williams on the British Comedy Classics blog last week. The clip is from the 1980’s sketch show Not The Nine O’ Clock News and has Rowan Atkinson introducing the contenders for the Pro Am Silly Trousers Tournament.
I think Ian Poulter could give all these old timers a good run for their money!
