Ogilvy lets it rip


LEMONT, Ill. – As fans of his popular Twitter account are aware, Geoff Ogilvy doesn’t pull punches, which made that Wednesday pro-am pairing at the BMW Championship with Rees Jones all the more interesting.

Ogilvy is among the Tour’s more outspoken players and something of an armchair golf course architect, while Jones is the guiding hand behind many of the game’s most high-profile redesigns including this week’s Dubsdread layout at Cog Hill

The two had plenty of “cross bunkering” and “heroic carry” talk during their round and Ogilvy said he enjoyed the round, if not all the changes Jones made to Dubsdread.

The Australian, however, didn’t blink when he was asked if he would like to play another round with Jones?

“I would prefer a round with Ben Crenshaw,” Ogilvy said. “Rees is a very nice man, but if I was going to play a round and talk architecture it would be with Ben.”
