What has the 2006 U.S. Open champion been up to lately? Aside from taking the SBS Championship by the throat and the birth of his son, Ogilvy has switched his club sponsor (from Cobra to Titleist) and apparel sponsor (from Puma to FootJoy), been busy on twitter (over 10,000 followers), and playing some kick ass golf. I did a little searching around and wanted to find out more about him. Take a peek and see about his family life, the clubs he's using and some other odd ball facts.
Life at Home, Some Famous Relatives, and a Pie Shop
Geoff is married to Juli, has a daughter Phoebe Elizabeth and son Jasper Michael. They gave welcomed their third child and second boy into the world right on his due date: February 11, 2010. Some other distant family members are Royal Family member Angus Ogilvy, and even more distantly, Robert The Bruce on his father's side.
Geoff also owned an Australian Pie Shop in Scottsdale, AZ named MOJO Pies, but it's recently closed.
Driving the Green at Accenture Match Play
"After a long and disappointing search of the garage all I could find was wedges I can't use any more."
"The word of the day is "semantics."
"In honor of the Olympics I think February will be a Labatt Blue month."
"When a credit card expires on 2/10 does it run out at the start or end of February?"
"Went surfing the other day. When my head went under it was like I had eaten my ice cream too fast."
"I leave on Tuesday and when I arrive it will be Thursday. That doesn't seem fair, does it?"
