My first steps to golf’s big match – with Andrew - were taken this afternoon!
My golf-bag and clubs saw the light of day for the first time in more than a decade. After a mini-protest and a short time “acclimatising” to the winter’s sun they were fine.
They looked exactly as they did when last I saw them: old, no rust and no dry rot. This is much more than could be said about me! Enough said.
The bigger body and extra years did not prevent my completing successfully my first - few - golf swings since my shoulder injuries.
A step. A small step.
I will be ready – sometime – this year for my certain defeat.
