The Double Life of A Golf Czar Porn Star














We've all heard tales of double lives; The mild mannered office clerk who robs banks on his lunch hour... or the preppy college student who moonlights as a call girl. These stories almost always end badly once the egregious alter ego is exposed.

And so it was recently for Garth Stirrat. Mr. Stirrat had been the CEO of the New Zealand PGA for six years, and as such presided over virtually all high profile golf activity in the beautiful island country. The dashing Kiwi was frequently photographed hob-nobing with the country's elite. That is, until some ...other... photos were discovered.

In late June it was announced that Garth Sirrat was stepping down from his position with the NZ PGA. The reason for his departure, supposedly, was that he was "seeking greener pastures". No further explanation was given, and by the end of August Mr. Sirrat had secured a position as head of the New Zealand Hotel Council. And that's when it all came down.

It seems someone on the Hotel Council board was doing a bit of ...um, research... in an ultra salacious, X-rated magazine, and discovered a six page photo spread featuring the former Golf Czar in... (gasp)... a "number of different positions". The Hotel Council executive who hired Mr. Sirrat called the photo spread... "disappointing".

I've heard porn called "disappointing" before, but I think it was for different reasons.

So Garth Stirrat resigned from his Hotel Council job barely a week into it. Had he not, most feel that he would have been fired for "bringing the organisation into disrepute."

It soon came out that during the time he was with the NZ PGA, Mr. Sirrat had also made an x-rated video, using the alias Steve Parnell. (Personally I think Garth Sirrat is a much better porn star name)

So once again a double life has resulted in disaster, and as will often be the case, a confused spouse was left wondering how this could have happened. Garth Sirrat's pretty blonde wife of only several months, has said she does not believe her husband was the person in those films, however, it's been reported that her Facebook relationship status has recently been changed to "complicated".
