Me… but more like the G&Tee.
I’ll be heading up to Royal Portrush for the last day of The Open Golf Championship on Sunday as a guest of Tourism Northern Ireland http://www.tourismni.com and staying at the 4* Clayton Hotel in Belfast. http://www.claytonhotelbelfast.com.
And I’ll share all the off-course news with you too when I get back.
In truth we’re something of a golf wannabe family, Every Wednesday which was my Dear Old Dad’s half day he and my Mum would go up to their golf club outside Glasgow for a round.
My Dad had a mantra on the green: ‘Never up, never in…’ which he used the day we went down to the practice day in Royal Troon and he made a passing comment to major winner David Graham by the side of one of the practice green. The Aussie shot back with a withering look.
I’ll be desisting if I see Tiger or Rory on the practice green, but it might be in the genes.
Clayton Hotel rooms from £99 per night. For all the news on the Open visit http://www.theopen.com.
