Thurles Golf Course – I am on leave this week and started the week on the right foot by playing in the first round of the novice cup matchplay. The day was a scorcher we went out at 10.30 a.m. and it was about 28.5 heading out and 30 coming in. Lost the game on the 18th but when you play a good round of golf, losing is not such a bitter pill to swallow. Updates will be slow and sporadic as I will be to busy outside chasing a 21 month old baby around the lawn and trying to teach him how to kick a ball. My plan of having a real madrid wonder kind has just started…..
