Next on the agenda

A new week is already underway. The English Amateur finished with a bit of a surprise winner when Todd Adcock beat Chris Paisley in the 36 hole final on Saturday. Match play is always an interesting form of golf and the fact that these guys had been going at it since the first round on the Monday was probably a contributing factor to why that match was swaying back and forth.  Both players showed great proof of the ability to come back at various stages of the match and when they shook hands on the 34th Todd had certainly deserved his win.

Chris probably only just got home to change his suitcase before he took off again, this time to the Czech Republic for the Czech Amateur where he is flying the English flag together with James Robinson and Adam Wainright.

Other interesting things happening in the golfing world this week is that the professionals get ready to master the challenging Oakland Hills for the PGA Championships in the US. While they do this the boys of the Home Unions have already started the Boys’ Home Internationals at Royal County Down. England beat Wales today while Ireland beat Scotland. Tomorrow it is England’s turn to face Scotland.
