Desert Swing
3 February 2015

Well it's been a very busy time for me since the holidays. I played my first tournament of the year in Abu Dhabi followed by a week practising in Dubai and then the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. The results in both the events I played weren't particularly what I was looking for but the long game is in good shape and once I...

Sunshine After The Rain
15 November 2014

Hi there, once again apologies for the absence of a blog but it's been a busy few months. I now have the opportunity to settle down and pen a few words!

Royal appointment

All work with a little play
9 July 2013

Hi there everyone, and once again I know it's been a while but I've been working so hard on my golf that everything else has had to take a back seat.

Down in the dumps
9 April 2013

You may have heard I've had to withdraw from the Masters Tournament this week and to say I'm bitterly disappointed is somewhat of an understatement. We started our holiday a few weeks ago at Abaco in the Bahamas and myself and Alison had a week together before the family came out to join us. We were all havi...

Get running!
21 February 2013

Hi there folks and happy 2013 to you all. I hope it's been a good start so far. My year started down in South Africa for the Volvo Golf Champions at Durban Country club which was a great venue for the event where l played quite solidly after the holiday break. It was a great tournament put on by Volvo who put in ...
