Golf Nation

New York Times website headline --

Northern Ireland Has an Outsize Presence in Golf

It's an interesting account of the lineage from David Feherty and Darren Clarke to the championship runs of Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy and reading it prompts the question about which of the identified factors are different from those that prevail in the Republic.  But anyway.

The article has a footnote --

A version of this special report appeared in print on June 16, 2011, on page B17 of the New York edition with the headline: Small Nation With an Outsize Presence.

Someone thought better of the description of NI as a nation.
