A little help here please, with the Ryder Cup starting later this week Celtic Manor is obviously in the news a little, all are pronouncing it ‘Keltic’ (with a hard ‘K’), I later hear a football report from Scotland and the exact same word is pronounced ‘Seltic’ (with an ‘S’), why?
Did you know…
The five-star Celtic Manor, owned by Wales’ richest man, Sir Terry Matthews
The same site also claims,
The competition is the third biggest global sporting event behind the football World Cup and the Olympic games
That I find difficult to believe, perhaps they mean ‘US sporting event‘ but to suggest that there is greater interest in the Ryder Cup than The Cricket World Cup, The Rugby World Cup, The Commonwealth Games or even perhaps that 4 yearly national football tournament the Euro 20xx I find difficult to believe.
I would think that perhaps an Ashes series draws a larger audience than the Ryder Cup!
