Masters Champion Still Ailing

Two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal is struggling to get back in competition. Rheumatism has kept him out of tournaments since last August when he missed the cut in the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. Before that knee problems limited him to just two events -- the Scottish Open and the Bridgestone Invitational -- after the 2007 U.S. Open.

I'd like to see Jose back out there. He'll be 42 next Tuesday, but with all the injuries he seems older. I'm not sure if Ollie has another comeback in him, although he did finish in a tie for third at last year's Players Championship.

I stumbled upon your blog and I was immediately attracted by the words 'golf deprived'. I'm not sure what it means but if it refers to golf enthusiasts who are deprived of the game due to certain reasons then I must agree that there are people who are real talented but have no means to play. Check out my blog at http://golfborneo.blogspot.com and see what I mean. By the way, nice blog you have there.

Leonard: Initially, it referred to myself (and others) unable to play much golf due to various life circumstances. Now its broader meaning is golf enthusiasts who can't get enough golf in its many forms.
