My father Roger was a caddie in the 40's a player in the 50's and a teacher in the 60's when I was born (1963). Thanks to him and his patience, I have learn from him in the 70's, caddied/played with him in the 80's, taught with him in the 90's. In 2000 this day at 0h500 he booked his tee time to heaven and since then I am his score card keeper (CaddiePlayer).
I do not have children myself, therefore all children are "mine" and their fathers a mirror to my own. Over the past year I have encountered countless fathers and I have often asked myself what kind of a father would I have been?
From Holly Riordan
"Being a good father means supporting your children with their dreams. It means giving them the freedom to choose. It means letting them make their own decisions because you trust that you raised them the right way. Because you trust that they have the tools they need to succeed."
From Ghalil Ghibran
Today I have a special thoughts for my father as well for father Marc Langasque (father of Romain Langasque Winner yesterday of the Wales Open Romain first European tour win) : "Je suis le plus heureux des papas" > https://www.facebook.com/marc.langasque/posts/10220964156446279 - https://www.europeantour.com/european-tour/wales-open-2020/
Until next time fathers...
After 8 months of Covid19, travelling as far as Thailand via Saudi, being confined in Dubai for 6 weeks, stuck in Switzerland 2 months, and a on going project in France, I am now back to Scotland my new home.
Initially I was supposed to be Onsite CaddiePlayer at the Scottish Ladies Open instead I have ended up as Online CaddiePlayer at TheDucks Inn, where the TV crew and LET co-founder and commentator Mickey Walker stayed. OnLine CaddiePlayer from the Ducks gave me extra time together with my local associate, Ian Butcher, to initiate the transcript biography of the British Open Champion 1904 JackWhite and here the first draft:
"John White, known as Jack was born on the 15 of august 1873 in Pefferside cottage 5 miles east of North Berwick between Scoughall and Whitekirk. John’s father was involved in agricultural laboring on the estate of Mr Laidlay who’s son, John Ernest Laidlay, became one of the great amateur golfers of East Lothian by winning the British Amateur Championship twice (1889/1891) as well as inventing the most used grip today, known as “The Vardon Grip”…"
Jack White's birthday 147 years ago, was last saturday august 15th and to my great satisfaction it coincided with a win from CaddiePlayer Junior U14 Celeste Mangeat from Switzerland. (Instagram: @cegolf242)
