So close, and yet so far away

After an evening where England failed to impress against Algeria in the football World Cup two golfers in a certain part of Scotland probably could not care less about this fact. They have bigger things on their minds as they prepare for the final of the Amateur Championship at Muirfield tomorrow. After 36 holes on Saturday and up to 10 rounds in the last week one of James Byrne, Scotland and Jin Jeong, South Korea, will lift the trophy that apart from a place in the history books will give the holder a place in the field of the Open Championships in three weeks’ time and in the Masters Tournament at Augusta next year.

This year two Englishmen made it to the semi-final. Matt Nixon and Chris Paisley have every reason to be pleased with their week while they reflect on the key question;
– ‘If I had the chance over again, what would I do differently?’.
Finding the right answer to that question can without a doubt be just as life and career changing as lifting that trophy!
