Last Sunday Tom, our 12 year old son, took part in the HSBC Wee Wonders golf competition.
To say he is into his golf is a bit of an understatement. But to achieve something does not necessarily follow. To illustrate the point, in the last seven years I have competed in something like 25 Medals and not once had my handicap reduced. But nobody could accuse me of not trying.
When I say not once, I mean… not once.
In contrast; in the last two years, Tom has never had his increased.
Anyway, to the story. Tom is first out. 26 of Edinburgh’s finest 12 and under golfers. The player that gets the ball furthest round the course in 36 strikes goes to the Scottish final in Royal Troon.
He finds out that the Royal Troon event coincides with when we are in (Non-Royal) Lagos.
Ach well, like Scotland in the 1978 World Cup he can be the only undefeated person in the entire tournament (apart from the winner of course).
