Australian Rules golf

Here's why I love the internet (well, sometimes). Got an email from a bloke in Brisbane, Australia who stumbled across the Runway blog about Ted Knight I wrote a couple of months ago. He and some Aussie pals, who all worship Caddyshack, started a Ted Knight Memorial "Gof" (that's golf without the 'L') Invitational back in 1986, the year Ted passed away. It's been held annually at various courses in The Land Down Under, and the lads recently completed their 22nd tournament in December. They even have their own rather extensive website, with full results and participants. Seems like they get their fair share of drinking in with the golfing, or shall I say, 'goffing'. Definitely my kind of event! If I'm ever in Australia, I'd love to participate.

That would be my niece, Lacey Underall. She's in from Manhattan for the summer.
