  1. Sally Jordon says:

    OBA is this one of the cuts we can look for in an oba tourism budget? Or will Michael D not cut this tournament because he and his senate buddy Jeanie have way too much free fun - profiling with colt craig and all the golf celebs? Things you know, that we don't know, that we need to know.

      The PGA has already cut Bermuda from the schedule after this year, so you don't have to worry about a thing.

    • Dont Drink the KoolAid says:

      Speaking of golfing buddies, I saw Derrick Burgess, Billy Griffith and Mike Jackman hacking around on Monday during the pro-am event. All expenses paid courtesy of the taxpayers and they were too cheap to even tip their caddies. Classy bunch.

  2. Hacking says:

    Bottom line is OBA is complaining about government spending and using government purse for their own enjoyment. Can't have it both ways, check their released outline for Bermuda. They will spend more that the present government. Go take a seat, we will have to drink kool aid under a OBA Dunkley government.
