Here we go again!

I am not sure if it is just me and the fact that I am currently more bogged down in budget figures than I am out watching golf but I do feel like the golf at this early part of the year seems further away than normal. The US Tour has started and I am not sure how many people have noticed it. The top players, obviously Tiger Woods included, seem to have taken a bit of a lie in start to the year and even though I am sure that Pat Perez is a great player his winning the Bob Hope Classic does not exactly excite me. European Tour is far out east, in Dubai this week, and with the very strong field on display perhaps this can be the injection that at least I feel is needed.

The amateur game has started even further out east from our point of view. A group of Englishmen is flying the flag in Australia with Adam Wainright and Jason Palmer staying for more or less the full spring season to compete for Waverly Golf Club in the Pennant series and Charlie Ford and Farren Keenan doing a shorter stretch of events to return to the UK again in mid February. So far Charlie has put himself forward by finishing 2nd in the Avondale Medal and 3rd in the Lake Macquarie Amateur Championships. Next on the list for these guys is the New South Wales Medal and Match Play Championships. 

And apart from trying to get the budget figures to add up I have just posted the first Peter’s Monthly of 2009. Check it out under the Peter’s Monthly section. The first England Team of the year is out in Costa Ballena, Spain, where David Oldcorn’s and Graham Walker’s A Squad players are trying to capture the first title of the year. I will try to feed information from them through on this blog! If your Spanish is up to it you should also be able to follow the results on the Spanish Federation website.
