Sean McLoughlin – Backbone

sean-mcloughlin-backbone_30208_thumbIt is immediately apparent that Sean Mcloughlin is an angry young man, much in the mould of Corey Pavin during the War on the Shore.  Sean tells us that his life has been a long series of decisions worse than Rory McIlroy’s to switch to Nike clubs.  Sean then engages in some wonderful off-the-cuff crowd interaction – reminiscent of Bubba Watson during the Ryder Cup at Medinah.

Sean then goes on to talk about the differences between the American half of his family and the British half.  This seemed like the perfect opportunity to analogize about the use of Creeping Bentgrass or Poa Annua grass on European Tour greens, compared to the predominance of Bermuda grass on the PGA Tour in the US.  Alas the chance went begging.  This was a continuing theme throughout the show, as absolutely no mention of golf was made in the entire hour – disappointing.  It is with this in mind that I award ‘Backbone’ two and a half golf balls.
