Blame me for that. I was a surf lifesaver (lifeguard) for 8 years. The Clubhouse had a bar open Friday nights, and if you breached rules by arguing politics, sex, race, creed and so on, you appeared before a Committee and were suspended.
Those clubhouse rules were regularly breached back when I used to frequent as an angry young rascal. I remember convincing the barman there was a "golf war" between Colin Montgomerie and Tiger Woods.
Another time I convinced him that it was just a heated argument about a brand of cider.
Admittedly, it meant some of the more in-depth arguments about economics had to wait until surfs up on Saturday.
