In The Pink
Posted: 27th September 2008
I've always had a few problems at The Belfry and things did not change at the Quinn Insurance British Masters.
The highlight of my visit was actually judging the best dressed competition when breast cancer research and charities were the beneficiaries of Pink Friday.
I was amazed at how many people did buy into the day and pink was definitely the colour for not only the galleries, but also those inside the ropes. Just about every player either donned something pink or wore a breast cancer awareness badge and thousands of pounds were raised in what was a brilliant initiative by my manager and good friend Chubby Chandler.
I did actually make it to the weekend this time, but only because there was a long fog day on Friday and I couldn't complete my second round until Saturday. I did actually find some form on the range and managed to take it with me on to the course, but although I did find a few birdies, unfortunately not enough to see me through for the last two rounds.
At least I'm heading towards St. Andrews confident that I'll give a reasonable account of myself there and Carnoustie and Kingsbarns next week in the alfred dunhill links. It's always a great week and Dunhill boss Johan Rupert always puts on a good show.
The target is to get inside the world's top 50 before Christmas.

Overall my ambitions are to foster goodwill through the game of golf and to show children all over Ireland that golf is a great game, it’s a healthy game which promotes integrity and honesty and can be played by people of all ages.
