Busy times in golf

I think it is about time to get back in to the blogging-habit again. Already 11 days into the New Year I have yet to put something in writing. I did a column for the Swedish Golf website the other day as I, along with loads and loads of other people, turned to the golf courses around Stockholm for cross-country skiing over the holidays. I wonder why all the club houses are closed when there is a market out there, on skis, waiting to buy coffee.

December and early January are supposed to be a rather quiet time in golf. Well, it is not! It is the time of the year when we put on everything that we do not really have time for during the season. Hence December saw the Christmas Camp that kept us going right up to the holidays and now January is starting on a high with the England Golf Coaching Conference at Woodhall Spa. Dave Alred among others is coming to speak and I bet there will be one or two messages worth taking on!

In the meantime, our top amateurs are in the Southern Hemisphere to get some of the rust out of the system. Talk about starting on a high – Royal Melbourne in January – it does not get any better than that! Check out Master of the Amateurs here.
