Reminder: The (Moving?) Dinosaur Debuts At Aus PGA

I had no idea the dinosaurs at Clive Palmer's Coolum Resort move, but it seems from this News 10 footage that the "mechanical monstrosity" makes sounds too.

I think I'm getting a better feel for why the Australian PGA--locked out last weekend by the resort owner--is leaving after this week. Golf Channel has the feed starting at 9:00 ET.

@Beljans Brigade - I's an embarrassment for Australian golf but rest assured it's a one off freak show event. As for the PGA, they will have no choice but to play more tournaments globally

will never ever happen.

@beljans brigade - But it already is - and it's good for the game of golf ! Look what happened with the LPGA - going global is the only thing that saved it. The PGA is OK in the short term, but will increasingly have to globalise - like any other industry

We agree on a lot more things than we disagree clearly.

Greg Norman just withdrew after two holes (going bogey/bogey) with food poisoning. Perhaps he got a look at the dinosaur.

WHERE ARE THE DINOSAURS I think the broadcasters are on the PGA payroll.

LOL Mark B...I too am watching and can't seem to find a single dinosaur!

Helluva an on-course interview with Allenby there...first he offers up the fact that he figures he was chosen from the group because he's most likely to say something he shouldn't! Then then television guy starts right in on the supposed conflict between him and Ogilvy and actually mentions "fisticuffs"! At which point Darren Clarke jumps in and suggests he's "the referee"!

Truly bizarre...
