He's a bit like marmite really. You either love him or hate him. Personally, I reckon he's pretty good for the game of golf and any tournament that he plays in will be richer for it.
A fantastically consistant 4 rounds for JD in Italy this week. He's been out of competitive golf for almost a year and to hit rounds of -2,-2,-2 and -5 shows that he's still got what it takes to rock and roll with the best of them.
And before anyone maligns the bloke for his past antics, read his book. "My life in and out of the rough" shows the hardships that life has thrown at him. Some of this has been self-inflicted but some of it is just a bloke trying to make his way in life and earn some corn.
I wish him well for the rest of the season. The way he's played this week has demonstrated that he could take valuable Order of Merit/R2D cash from the regular European Tour boys. Good luck JD, hope it all comes together for you!!!
Can't wait for this years Open at Turberry and to follow JD for a few holes (in and out of the rough)!!!
