Japanese Masters Golfer Promises To Donate Winnings To Disaster Relief In Japan

Filed under: InspirationGolf

So generous!

As his homeland of Japan is still in dire need, Ryo Ishikawa has pledged to donate all his 2011 earnings to disaster relief funds set up to help the struggling country. He added that for every birdie he makes, he'll donate an extra 100,000 yen.

This means, if he wins the top prize at the Masters gold tournament, which equals $1 million, that's $1 million dollars going to straight to relief groups helping those in need in Japan. It's such a wonderful thing that Ryo is doing, but if you ask him, it's the least he can do. He says:

"That's one of the reasons why I decided to donate the entire earnings this year, so that I feel that I am with them and fighting with them side by side, although I will not be with them physically."

Well, obviously, now we hope he wins! We hope he wins it all! LOLZ!

What Do You Do With An MA In Beatles Studies?

college degree in beatles studies

No, we didn't misspell beetles, and we're NOT talking about a degree in entomology.

Former Miss Canada finalist Mary-Lu Zahalan-Kennedy is officially the first person in the world to graduate with a Masters in Beatles Studies!

That's right! The Liverpool Hope University student received an advanced degree for her study of the legendary musical group.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"I am so proud of my achievement. The course was challenging, enjoyable and it provided a great insight into the impact the Beatles had and still have to this day across all aspects of life."

For those of you who are totally intrigued and want to know more, the course "looks at the studio sound and composition of the Beatles and how Liverpool helped to shape their music. The MA examines the significance of their music and how it helped to define identities, culture and society."

Here's what the founder/leader of the Beatles MA at Liverpool Hope University Mike Brocken had to say about his first grad's accomplishment:

"Mary-Lu now joins an internationally recognized group of scholars of Popular Music Studies who are able to offer fresh and thought-provoking insights into the discipline of musicology."

Congratulations, Mary-Lu! Looks like you're ready to make a name for yourself in the music industry…or be a REALLY knowledgeable associate in Best Buy's media department. LOLz.

Would U like to pursue an MA in Beatles Studies?

Tiger's Warm Welcome At The Masters

Filed under: ZportzTiger Woods

Nobody cares he banged a bunch of whores — he's back to golf!

Tiger Woods received a thunderous round of applause and cheers as he walked on the fairways at the Augusta National Country Club during his practice round for the Masters. Tiger said:

"I didn't know what to expect with regards to reception, and, I tell you what, the galleries couldn't be nicer. I mean, it was just incredible. The encouragement I got . . . it blew me away, to be honest with you."

Well, he knows all about blowing! One of the locals said:

"The man's a Buddhist, and this is the Bible Belt. We forgive. This week, people in Augusta look at one thing — how well do you hit a white ball?"

How soon everyone forgets — but we bet wife Elin isn't on that bandwagon!

Elin Says 'No, No, No' To Masters!

Filed under: ZportzLove LineTiger Woods

Good! Don't let him off the hook yet, bb!

Tiger Woods' return to golf is scheduled for next week when he plays in the Masters, and despite the media shifting of attention to his fellow partner in douchebaggery, Jesse James, one person has NOT forgotten about the golfer's laundry list of hookers: his wife, Elin.

Tiger's people are apparently desperate to get Elin to be at the tournament, smile and pretend like she supports Woods, but girlfriend is playing hardball and isn't doing anything she doesn't want to do! Kudos!!

A source says:

"Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden. She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there."

We still think she should have gotten those divorce papers signed and ready the day slam pig #1 appeared, but we have to give Elin credit for standing her ground and not giving Tiger a break!

He definitely DOES NOT deserve one!!

Everyone's Betting On Tiger!

His personal life may be a mess but in golf, he's still a star!

Tiger Woods is everyone's favorite to win the Masters, even though he hasn't played in a tournament for months.

Several gambling websites show the disgraced golfer as the clear favorite with odds ranging from 2/1 to 9/2. Phil Mickelson is the runner up to win.

Do U think Tiger will win?!
