Friday 18th August Red Arrows Junior Comp!!

It’s another competition at Holywood Golf Club.It’s blowing a gale,as Nothern Ireland is getting the tail end of Hurricane Gert!! We are getting rain showers that aren’t taking time to come down and if you are trying to put up an umbrella,you’ll have problems.Anyway,onto the competition.The problem with Jamie at the moment is,his Mum and Myself his father,can’t seem to get Jamie to go to bed and get sleep,so that he’s ‘Fresh’ for competition days.He just seems to be like one of those Duracell Bunnies,which just keep going.We’ve tried to explain to him,that in order to play well,you need to rest.Today the competition was of the Green Tee’s and it was another challenge.He got round with a few wee problems(tiredness) being one and the Gales being the other.But Jamie came in with 31pts and the handicap sneaking up to 21.7.Anyway,he’s still progressing.
