Bogeyman outed

The Toronto Star's longtime Bogeyman, the paper's annonymous golf critic, was outed over the weekend after he announced he was retiring. Turns out he isn't a staffer after all -- he's a teacher named Bob Marshall and he's 63.
Bob did more than 250 reviews of golf courses for the paper, which is remarkable in some ways. The only issue I had with the Bogeyman is that for the longest time he didn't seem to have any taste in golf architecture. He still likes some really, really marginal courses, like Lionhead. But at the very least, he's a fan of Eaglesnest. So he isn't all bad.
You can see his final writeup here and an interview with him here.
