Corinne Dibnah, who won 13 Ladies european Tour events including the Women’s British Open, has left Bowen Golf Club following the devastation left by Cyclone Debbie. “I don’t care what it [job] is or where it is, I just want a job,” said Dibnah, who was managing the north Queensland club and has golf shop and teaching experience. email Dibnah at firstname.lastname@example.org 9000KMS, 72 HOLES IN TWO DAYS NOW, if you travel as much as international golf adventurer John Sellwood you are bound to come across some strange and extraordinary tales on and off the fairway. John has played at more than 550 golf courses around the world and virtually has an interesting yarn from each one. For example, he was playing golf at Waterville golf course in the southwest of Ireland when three Americans joined him on the tee. “Waterville is where they have a statue of the late, three-time major winner Payne Stewart because he used to practice there before the British Open,” John said. “Anyway, I was playing with three Americans and they told me they had just arrived the night before from Boston in America’s northeast. “ They said they do this journey often. They fly from Boston on Friday evening to Shannon the Irish city on the western side of Ireland for two days of golf.” That’s more than 4600 kilometres and about a seven-hour flight (one way). “On the Saturday I played with them they were playing 36 holes before having a drink or three that night,” John said. “ Then on Sunday they play another 36 holes and fly back to Boston on Sunday evening to be back at work on Monday morning. “My response was: ‘hell, what a way to go’.” PLAYING GOLF IS NO SHOO-IN MArK Osborn reached the 11th tee at his beloved Keperra County Golf Club in Brisbane when the pain set in. A massive blister had developed on the heel of his right foot and he couldn’t understand why. he wasn’t wearing brand-new golf shoes and thought his sock was the culprit. “I struggled to walk properly over the last eight holes and during that time I said to my brother-in-law Mick Devereaux: ‘I can’t work out why I have this monstrous blister’. Mark said. “When I got home I realised I had worn one my son’s (Brett) golf shoes and one of mine. “We have exactly the same golf shoes and in my hurry to get to golf, I grabbed the wrong shoe. “It wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t left his golf gear at my place a week earlier.” WEBSITE OUTAGES IN line with political speak some golf websites are suffering from “outages” and are lacking “power”. Indeed, a couple of them have listed “latest news” stories as current as May 2015. Yep, Inside Golf came across a club promoting an event that was played more than two years ago. It must be said that many golf club and district association’s sites are maintained and are up-to-date. We know websites take work, but really. DON’T KEEP IT A SECRET DON’T be the game’s best-kept secret. If you have something to boast about, we can help with our monthly Club News feature. Clubs who have upcoming special events or golf course, clubhouse or staff changes, funny or unusual stories, with or without photos, should ensure Inside Golf knows. Advance publicity can swell fields at your club’s special events. If we know, everyone knows.

Vale Roberto De Vicenzo roberto De Vicenzo was arguably the most prolific winner in golf history. The Argentinian won more than 230 tournaments around the world, including the 1967 Open Championship. Sadly, De Vicenzo was best known by many for an unfortunate scoring mistake at the 1968 Masters that cost him a chance at a playoff with Bob Goalby. Marking a par-4 on his card instead of the birdie-3 that he actually had, De Vicenzo’s higher score stood (as per the rules of golf ), leaving him one shot back. his quote to the media afterward became legendary for its poignancy: “What a stupid I am!” De Vicenzo died June 1 in ranelagh, Argentina. he was 94. De Vicenzo suffered a hip fracture after a fall at his home on March 21. Although he underwent surgery, he had remained bed-ridden since. De Vicenzo is survived by his wife, Delia ester, and sons roberto and eduardo.
