Anybody following this on Golf channel? Check it out quite motivational and real life which I believe many can relate

Pretty interesting cast

1. Ex-Olympic champion: this guy won gold in Sydney games and after swim career, need to have a challenge to keep his mind in sane....

2. Son of Ex-New York Mayor: Super talk alot chap

3. Then we have a pretty high flied Wall St chap who gave up his finance career to pursue his dream...ie golf

This Disney series was shown last year.

The current one which has 4 episodes left will be followed with much interest if its shown in Sg.

Heck, its followed with much interest here for obvious reasons.

caught last nite 's episode

The golfers were asked to tee off fm a baseball pitch..and try to do a 'home run'.

One of them, Tony (i think) was bloody impressive...22 'home runs'....where one home run is like carry of 310+ yards....

honestly no.....(guess they have not heard about me too...hahaha)

But they have beautiful, youthful swing, powerful swing..macam the Rory. Thats the Gen-Y golfers, super swing.

But then, the short game is abit suspect......the younger bro, actually kinda duff the sand shot.....

so who are the Finau's kids?

This piece of new from back in 2006 about Gipper Finau

http://www.pgatour.com/story/9647235/

This is about Tony Finay from back in 2007

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/07/sports/golf/07golf.html

Unfortunately, doesn't seem like they quite made it to the big time like Rory or Ryo
