When other matters matter

I have to admit that updating the blog has not been top of the priority list this week. Not since Thursday anyway. The McEvoy Trophy was played in great style with some fantastic golf being played. Chris Lloyd, the pre-tournament favourite led the way and his finish of 11 under was only caught by Rhys Pugh’s outstanding birdie stride on the last few holes. Brian Roake’s England U18 News blog will have all the details also of the play off where Chris unfortunately fell short.

It was on Thursday when northern Europe suddenly came to a complete standstill. Well, at least the air traffic and because of the life we live that means roughly the same thing. I would know as my plans involved travelling to Stockholm for the weekend. Several boat, train and car rides later I am there but it is evident how vulnerable we are. And this time it was not anything like a terrorist act. It was mother nature herself and perhaps we ought to wonder what she is trying to say?

I heard stories from fellow passengers about standing next to Ministers of Governemnts trying to get home from Brussels with just about the same problems as everybody else. Before a gigantic cloud of ash from Iceland we are all equal!

Two of our England players, Matt Haines and Tommy Fleetwood were due to fly out to India this weekend for the Bonallack Trophy. I wonder if train is an option…
