    Re: Allenby Ogilvy Put on the Gloves

    interesting story, definitely some truth to both sides and i hope he gets his game back on track soon.

    what really got me though was Paul Gow...I know...Paul Who?

    Calling out Allenby and saying he'll never win a major? At least Allenby's got a shot with what, 3 or 4 top ten finishes in various majors? This guy never won a PGA event or qualified for a major as far as i can tell...guys like that piss me off

      well..i rooted for the presidents team and even picked allenby in the tgn pool as a player...and he sucked it....sucked it large. to have such a history on that course and play that bad.
      man...he sucked. there were holes ...even par 3's where i just knew after awhile he would miss the green...his putting was horrendous. i am a ogilvy fan...i dont know what to think but no doubt as a pick...allenby was visble sulking around the course..as he sucked it.

        maybe Ogilvy was upset about his 75 - 80 finish

          Allenby appears to be a jerk. His interview before the playoff at the Oz Open was testament to that.

            Norman is no Rommel, or even a Montgomery. His choice did not perform as well as Fred's. Allenby came off the goat when the Internationals got their noses tweaked. The fact that he is not a sympathetic character to begin with, only added to his discomfort as designated flagellant.

              Your historical and biblical references cracked me up. If you keep this up, you'll be exiled to your very own Elba for being too erudite for us.

              This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

                Elba won't be the death of me, unless the wall paper hasn't been changed.

                quote extract
                In 1980, Dr David Jones made a radio programme, broadcast by the BBC, in which he asked if anyone knew the colour of Napoleon's wallpaper on St Helena. As part of the programme, one of the stories that Dr Jones had told was one about Gosio's Disease. During the nineteenth century there had been a number of cases of arsenic poisoning that had caused some bewilderment. Some people became ill but others died. Arsenic was found in their bodies and foul play was sometimes suspected although in many cases it did not seem possible that the person had been poisoned deliberately. In 1893 an Italian Biochemist called Gosio worked out what was happening.

                Scheele's Green was a colouring pigment that had been used in fabrics and wallpapers from about 1770. It was named after the Swedish chemist Scheele who invented it. The pigment was easy to make and was a bright green colour but under certain circumstances the copper arsenite could be deadly. Gosio discovered that if wallpaper containing Scheele's Green became damp and then became mouldy, the mould could carry out a chemical process to get rid of the copper arsenite. It converted it to a vapour form of arsenic, normally a mixture of arsine, dimethyl and trimethyl arsine which was very poisonous. If Napoleon's wallpaper had been green, it could possibly have contained arsenic, and this could have been the source of the arsenic in the hair sample. Napoleon might have been an early victim of Gosio's disease.
