 Pros news 

That McIlroy bloke is starting to get on my nerves. Now, I'm not suggesting that he's motivated by money or anything but where the hell has that form been all year? In one of the most impressive displays of powerful golf we've seen in years, he shot through the field and won the lot on Sunday evening. Yes, he holed his second on the 16th in normal time, but isn't it incredible how the greats seem to make those things happen? Of course I'm referring to Tiger especially who seemed to do it with alarming regularity.

This of course sets up the Ryder Cup this week. It seems every time it comes around the European team seem to find something to lift them and McIlroy may well have done it again. I still think it's a big ask this time but you never know.

That task was, of course, made a little harder by the passing of Arnold Palmer on Sunday night. The Americans have already stated that they will be playing for him and, not that they needed a lift but I don't think it's hurt them.

Thought of the week 

Goodbye to 'The King'
On the subject of Arnie his influence on the modern game really cannot be understated. He was the first to make golf cool. He was the first with a private jet paid for by massive off the course sponsorship (nothing compared to now I might add, but massive back then). He, and then Jack and Gary, paved the way for the multi-millionaires of today and the enormous sums of money in the sport. As I'm sure all of you are aware he was also very savvy and right up to his death was quoted as one of the highest paid sportsmen in the world. His is definitely a life to remember and celebrate as I'm sure they will be doing this week at the Ryder Cup. 

Tributes have poured in, from players past and present, as well as from the US President. Jack Nicklaus said:

"He was more than a golfer or even great golfer. He was an icon. Arnold was someone who was a pioneer in his sport. He was the king of our sport and always will be."
