During the late 2000s, Geoff Ogilvy became a major champion & one of the premier players in the world. Unfortunately, after grinding away & finding less success in the latter decade, the Aussie succumbed to burn out & became less inspired to play PGA Tour golf.

I became a fan of Geoff because his swing was so simple. As a former teacher and still golf nut who continues to learn about the swing there was/is so much simple beauty in it. It reminded a lot me of late career Tom Watson. However it goes to show that the pga tour is a grind, even the practice rounds. If you don't absolutely love it, you just won't find a way to win. Kudos to him for stepping away and finding something that will drive him.

Great video Anaks

Really well put together, an interesting and rather sad in some ways subject, you dealt with it gracefully, keep up the good work..

I'm sure most people remember Phil losing that Open to a relatively unknown random guy from somewhere other than the States. As you so graciously pointed out Peter , Ogilvy had game. The US Open alone is ridiculously hard for anybody other than an American to win. To your question, what happened to him? I think he far exceeded his expectations like a lot of the Aussie sand belt players Parry , Chalmers etc, they dream of success on the PGA tour and when the dust settles, maybe they can fade into a certain degree of contentment. Hearing an interview with Geoff recently he sounded so modest and chill , you'd never know he actually won a US open.
Keep up the great work Peter 🤙
