Challenge Tour – Galgorm Castle Ballymena Northern Ireland Open July 26 – 29, 2016
In the past I haven’t been around for the Galgorm event [takes place across the road from where I live] due to European Tour (ET) events clashing, but with no tournament on the main tour I was able to go back and forth over the week to Galgorm ….. You’ll recall the SA caddie who got saved last November and me telling you he was to be on the ET with his player Francesco la Porta, well as is all to common, they split up in early March and he has been on the Challenge tour with SAs Michael Palmer, a young man who came through the US College system, so it was good too meet up with the caddy and have a one – to – one for an hour … Also the couple (met frequently last year) are on this tour for the season due to the player not retaining his card last year and his wife is caddying for him, so it was good to see them also …
European Tour – Paul Lawrie Match-Play Archerfield North Berwick August 4 – 5, 2016
This is the second year of the 64-man match-play, and is an extremely quiet event with only a third of the usual weekly number taking part with half of them going home after round one!!
It’s one of those weeks when simply being there and the familiarity that brings on a week to week basis comes to the fore, as ones purpose unfolds with an eye to the future, so it was good to have a few prolonged chats, about nothing in particular, with several players/caddies as there was a bit more time for them to dwell …. So that is all stored away for upcoming contacts …
With an eye to the next event in Prague [Czech Open] currently there are three of the Christian players; Jake Roos, Dean Burmeister and JBe Kruger in the field as well as other caddies being there, plus Nick [courtesy car man] and Mark also … So appreciate your prayers for that and my seeking to arrange a get together …
