Golf Digest's Final Four - The Stepford Husbands











I can't be the only one who noticed this. Or the only one who found it a bit...amusing/interesting/disturbing.

Here's the thing; Golf Digest received an astounding 73,581 entries in their U.S. Open contest. The entries, each one featuring a six word essay, poured in from all over the country. So I was quite surprised this morning when the finalists were announced...and I could barely... tell them... apart.

Don't get me wrong...they all seemed very nice, and each of their essays was clever, if somewhat insular. Individually, each man was an excellent candidate. It's just that... out of 73,581 entries, you'd think there'd be a smidge more diversity..wouldn't you?

Golf has always had a reputation as a game for white, middle-class, middle-aged men.

These finalists certainly do nothing to disprove that.
