If you ever have been to Ireland, wished
to go there or just been curious about one
of the world’s most enchanting lands,
this week’s cover story/special report and
destination package in The Post on “The Two
Irelands” is a must read and see.
Meanwhile, even the tabloids are focused
on Irish golfers these days. If Rory McIlroy
and tennis ingénue Caroline Wozniacki get
more serious about each other, might they
one day sashay down the emerald aisle
together? Just think of the sporting pedigree
their children would inherit.
Welcome to the fishbowl, kids.
While Wozniacki was looking for her first
major championship at the U.S. Open in
New York last week, McIlroy was finishing
T3 in Switzerland on the European Tour.
The winner there was Denmark’s Thomas
“ReBjörn,” 40, who has now won two weeks
in a row and three times in 2011.
Nothing should be considered a surprise
in golf anymore. Consider the odds you could
have gotten in January that Phil Mickelson
would be using a belly putter in September
or that Tiger Woods (remember him?) would
be playing in something called the Frys.com
Open in October.
Next up on golf’s radar screen are the
continuing FedEx Cup Playoffs, which have
captured the imagination of ... well … never
More compellingly, later this month the
Yanks and the Euros will contest the Solheim
Cup in ... where else? ... Ireland.
