At the same age, yeah, Woods said. His swing is definitely better than mine was at the same age. 10. I wish Robert Garrigus understood the impact of his words.The golf world reverberated this week with reactions to Garrigus admission in a Golf World magazine article that he has not only undergone treatment for a prior drug addiction problem, but used to smoke marijuana in Porta-Johns during Nationwide Tour events.Yes, the reaction was monumental even though these revelations werent exactly news.Kudos to Garrigus for having the courage to not only confront his addiction, but speak openly about it in public. Bois de parcours Callaway Diablo Edge Theres only one part of his story with which Ill take issue. Following the recent article, Garrigus told my colleague Rex Hoggard this week, My agent hates it because its probably costing me [endorsement] money off the course but I was an idiot and Im not that person anymore. Actually, I beg to differ. Based on the comments from fans, Garrigus didnt only not cost himself endorsement money, he may have earned himself a few more dollars in the process.Thats because this is the type of story that resonates with fans.
