From one major to the next

Phil Mickelson got to put on his third Green Jacket and what a popular winner he was. With his wife Amy at his side for the first time in a long while as she is undergoing cancer treatment he was the perfect American Dream winner. And he certainly deserved it. The golf that was played at Augusta this year was simply outstanding. It usually takes a Ryder Cup to get to see that number of holed iron shots off the fairways but this tournament was special.

For the PGA Tour it is now back to the usual business at Harbour Town, Hilton Head, this week. In England and boys’ golf it is time for the first Major of the year. Traditionally the season is ready to kick-start with the McEvoy Trophy, always at Copt Heath and always this week. Traditional is also that the weather can be quite iffy, to say the least. This year however the forecast is pointing towards 80 degrees on both Wednesday and Thursday. That is almost too good! (Of course it is! That was for Birmingham International Airport but unfortunately the one in Alabama. If we can get to 60 though I think we will all be really happy…)
