Trans Tasman battle on the golf course

Geoff Ogilvy will go up against Michael Campbell at Moore Park Golf Course in Sydney as part of an Australia v New Zealand Golf Skins Challenge on December 7. They will be joined by celebrities from both nations who will also play off against one another in golf’s version of the Bledisloe Cup.

It will be a short drive for Michael Campbell, the 2005 US Open champ who now resides in Sydney and is attempting to piece his golf game back together. Geoff Ogilvy, the 2006 US Open winner will also take time out of summer schedule to play.

The event is free for spectators and for a good cause with all proceeds going to youth charities in Australia and New Zealand and so far there’s a few celebrities on board. Nathan Hindmarsh is going up against Nathan Cayless but in the strangest match-up, Tim Farris from INXS is going up against Jimmy Barnes!

Yes, Jimmy Barnes is playing on the New Zealand team?! How does the country of New Zealand feel about this? According to Jimmy there ain’t no second prize but maybe this has what he has here? It looks like a fun day so get out there and support it if you can. This could become an annual fixture as there is certainly many other great match-up’s we’d all like to see:

Colin Hay v Neil Finn
Eric Bana v Russell Crowe
Peter Senior v Hobbit
Dean Jones v Richard Hadlee

Just to name a few.

    I am a kiwi but Cambo stands no chance against Ogilvy. I know it’s for charity but this is gonna be embarassing for him.
