Golfer’s wife stands by her man, literally.
Englishman Chris Paisley’s regular caddie was on vacation so Chis’ wife (Keri) stepped in at the last minute to lend a helping hand. Keri was by her husband’s side (every step of the way) as his caddie. BTW: The 31 year old (ranked 289 in the world) ended up WINNING the South African Open Championship in Johannesburg on Sunday.
Paisley praised his wife saying “(Keri) doesn’t know that much about golf… but she knows me really well and she knows when I’m going a little quicker than I usually do or getting a bit tight,” Paisley told reporters. ”I just can’t thank her enough…”
Going into the tournament as 286th in the world, Paisley will now climb to a career-high ranking of 121st after scooping the $192,578 first-place prize. https://goo.gl/URk91u

One New York Art Gallery has a different mission: No artists younger than 60 years of age allowed. Some 200 artists have exhibited at the Carter Burden Gallery since it opened nine years ago in Chelsea. Business is good, and works sell from $200 to $9,000. It’s a lot like hundreds of other galleries in New York — except for one important thing: The Carter Burden has an age limit. Why?
“Older adults do not stop being who they are because they hit a particular age,” said gallery director Marlena Vaccaro. “Professional artists never stop doing what they do, and in many cases they get better at it.”
Carter Burden is a nonprofit, supported by a board, a corporate sponsor and philanthropists. Carter Burden’s mission is to give (older artists) a wall – to hang their art on. https://goo.gl/CEFMko\
