European 'spy' embedded at Valhalla

Spy games at the Ryder Cup?
So says the Belfast Telegraph, which today spun the tale of Paul O’Donoghue, a full-blooded Irishman who for the last seven months has worked as a member of — gasp! — the Valhalla grounds crew:  "Yeah, they call me the spy. They won't tell me the speed the greens are going to run at because I'm European," he says, adding with a chuckle: "Mark Wilson [the Valhalla superintendent] won't talk about certain stuff in front of me, but I find out from the lads anyway." Nice try, O’Donoghue—the jig is up!
