你滿意嗎?

同樣要付費的話,你情願在電視上觀看老虎對米高遜那場九百萬美元獎金的做秀比賽?還是充滿娛樂性的球手粗口對罵?

2018 年 1 月 29 日午 3 時 06 分,緬甸。

在磐萊高爾夫球會第 15 洞發球台上,Shaun Norris 正在耐心地準備攻剋這個高難度的三桿洞。這位身高六尺二寸的南非球手,當時以兩桿之差落後領先者,來自美國的左手神將 Paul Peterson,二人距離只有廿尺之遙,Peterson 剛在第 14 洞果嶺完成了一記鳥推。

鏡頭轉至第 15 洞發球台,Norris 現正進行一記 220 尺擊球,當他上桿至頂點時,耳邊傳來震耳欲聾的歡呼聲:「推得好啊Paul!」、「贏定了Pauly!」

 

南非巨人這記四號鐵結果用力過猛,小白球直飛果嶺右邊,那是這個洞最差的球位落點。

 

「老子等了你足足五分鐘!你就不懂得為他人設想嗎?你這個 *%¥£!」在濃重的南非口音之下,是一堆我們不能刊登的字眼。

Peterson 當下是嚇了一跳,但一小時後都順利奪得個人首個亞巡賽錦標;至於南非巨人最後只落得並列第五名。

 

時間很快去到早前的感恩節周末,我安坐家中沙發觀看那場所謂「對決」——賽情令人失望,球手表現甚至讓人質疑受外圍賭盤影響,最期待的互相調侃更是一句也沒有——我付的那 14.99 美元真是太物有所值。

我當時不禁在想:為什麼不搞一場 Patrick Reed 對決 Ian Poulter——輸了一方就永別萊德盃呢?或者邀請 Brooks Koepka、Tony Finau 及 DJ 來一場發球鬥遠比賽?

如果 Norris 和 Peterson 願意來一場鳥籠格鬥博擊,我絕對願意付錢觀看!
