Geoff Ogilvy, the Saints and the pies

Geoff Ogilvy has been doing his best for Australian golf over the past few years with a fine US Open victory in 2006 and a great win at Kapalua last week just a couple of his achievements. He’s been doing his bit to bring the beard back to tournament golf and has been doing his best to bring a taste of Australia to the US, his current place of residence.

Geoff Ogilvy was born in Adelaide and spent much of his childhood in Melbourne and subsequently became a St.Kilda fan – no one is perfect. He apparently wears his St.Kilda gear in the US all the time according to this interview through the St.Kilda Football Club’s website. What is it about St.Kilda and celebrity fans (Shane Warne, Molly Meldrum)?

There’s been another part of Australiana Ogilvy is doing his best to bring to the USA. Australian meat pies. Any Australian that has lived in the US for any length of time may understand that the humble Australian pie is something that is sorely missed. Geoff Ogilvy is apparently a founding owner of Mojo Pies, an Australian pie company based in Scottsdale, Arizona (surprise, surprise) and distributing at the moment to California and Kansas as well as Arizona.

What is even more interesting about this is that Peter Senior and Tim Clark are also in on the company by the looks of the website. It’s tempting to ask Peter “who ate all the pies?”but we all know once you’ve had a pie it’s hard not to want more.
