Patsy: Golfers' play up to social climbing.

Byline: Patsy McGowan

THIS week I am going to write about a sport that I have steered clear off all my life. It's not the sport I don't like it, it's the people who follow it and their reasons for following it, that I don't like.

Golf is, and always has been, a stairway for social climbers.

The reason I mention it now is because the Minister for Sport has appealed to all involved with the upcoming Ryder Cup at the K Club in Co. Kildare, not to be over-charging.

Minister you must be joking. The people who attend this snobs' piss-up are used to paying over the nail to enhance their image and have been doing it for years. So hell rub it into them.

My advice to the hotels, B&Bs and restaurants is make a killing while you can, because these sporting leeches will spend the next 12 months reliving their experience and boring the s**t out of the ordinary punter.

It reminds me of the lady who spent every day at the local club while her husband worked his nuts off. Her real handicap was exposed when she bought a half pound of sausages at the local supermarket for her hubby's tea. Unfortunately a fellow lady member witnessed her and when the word got back to the club she was dropped from the list of potential captains.

So if you're going to take up golf and you don't have the financial clout forget it, the game has too many of your kind already.
