Perth? Och Noooooo!

Three-time European Tour event winner Brett Rumford is representing Western Australia at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland this week by proudly wearing Perth branding on his apparel to promote Perth and the inaugural ISPS HANDA Perth International golf tournament. 

So he’s in Scotland playing a golf tournament. Aren’t people going to think, “What? Perth? That hole on The Tay famous for the decline of the local whisky industry?”

Hard to find a way not to see this as a vibrancy fail and total waste of money. And, add as many pens and wallets as you like – I have a Dunhill cashmere and silk jumper myself, but the former connection with manufacturing cancer sticks can’t be helping either.

    Cynic. I plan all my holidays by reference to golfers’ jumpers. Either that or the locations of Air Races.

    er…why is he golfing wearing wicket-keeper’s gloves?

    and it says ‘Tit’ on his hat. f’nar f’nar

    and while we’re there: weird ear. This perhaps explains why the arms on his sunnies have no hook on the end

  3. And speaking of crappy, check out the planning excellence awards announcement in the facebook feed on the right. I get the feeling that the new stadium will have toilet bowls planned for in the goalsquares.

    I hope that embroidery doesn’t affect his swing, otherwise that golfer I’ve never heard of might not win that tournament no one’s ever heard of.

  5. Disappointed Brett Rumford Perth search comes in behind wikipedia in google results. Third is not good enough.
    Brett should be sponsored by Perth Scotland. It looks quite lovely from the photos. Can’t see Cocos one.
