Golfer turns chef

lucas parsonsAnyone remember Lucas Parsons? He played on the PGA Tour for a year and also on the European Tour with a career high ranking of 37th in 2000. So where is he now? Well he turned up last night on Channel 10’s new reality show called Masterchef and it appears he’s doing well.

Lucas Parsons featured prominantly on Australia’s home tour in the late 90’s. He won the Victorian Open, Queensland Open and the New Zealand Open but his biggest professional win was the Greg Norman Holden International in 2000 at The Lakes in Sydney.

Parsons is good mates with Michael Campbell (who was best man at his wedding) and he’s recently opened a bookshop cafe on Avoca St, Randwick. The guy could play golf and I tuned in to Masterchef briefly to see if he could cook. Like most reality shows it was tough viewing with judges you could deep fry. At one point one asked Parsons if he could putt with a pork chop.

I hung around long enough to see him make it to next week’s episode. I’m not sure I will.
