Golf’s marathon weeks

After a bit of adventurous travelling the England Teams have arrived at their respective venues. England Boys had a bit of trouble with the air traffic controls and ended up arriving in Turkey at 2 o’clock in the morning. Tommy Fleetwood perhaps had the most challenging journey as he traveled via Paris where he competed in the French Open at Golf National. Only a water visit on the 18th on the second day kept Tommy from playing over the weekend and this meant that he could travel back to Heathrow on the Saturday morning and catch up with the rest of the England Team on their flight out to Stockholm, Sweden.

Tommy came to Stockholm with a bit of a lesson learned in the noble art of not giving up. Tommy played the first two rounds with Mark Foster who started out with a not so impressive 76. One day and another 63 (!) shots later though he was right back in the mix for the event. Mark shot 70 in the third round and as I write this he is 4 under in a tied for 6th in the final round. That is a performance of a true professional!

The European Championships, Boys and Men, start on Tuesday in Turkey and Sweden. If you want to follow the boys then go to Brian Roake’s excellent England Boys News. The men I will try to keep track of here and of course you can follow the official scoring etc by clicking here.
