Heather Anderson and Liz Hale managed a win at Caldwell today (Sunday) in their Winter Foursomes Tie against the youngsters, Laura Craig and Heather Mushet.
Good weather for golf and good conditions. Age difference makes you smile. 66 years between the youngest and the oldest.!!
Maybe far too late but I never followed up my story about Heather Anderson and her trip to Muirfield. ----- CLICK HERE for original story
We had a great time. The Marine was comfortable,friendly and good food. The clinic with Darren Clark was really informative and interesting - driving and short game- always something relevant you remember to take away with you.
This was followed by a wonderful buffet lunch in the Clubhouse before going out for our round of golf.
We were put into ten teams of four. As Heather and I were the only two ladies it was funny to see the expressions on the faces of the two Irish gentlemen who had been landed with us. They were great to play with.
The weather was good, sunshine and we each had a caddy. Heather played well which made the game enjoyable for her It was not my best round of golf. However, Darren Clark played 2 holes with our team and I have to say they are the only 2 holes that I played well. That was a bonus.
It was a great experience to play the course and made watching The Open itself more interesting as we recognised the holes.
After the game we returned to the Hotel where there was a prizegiving dinner with Darren Clark hosting a question and answer session. The men were given ties with the Claret Jug embroidered on it while Heather and I were given a lovely silver brooch of the Claret Jug. Nice keepsake.
A really enjoyable experience - a well deserved experience for Heather to add to all her very many golfing achievements. She was quite sad to come away from Muirfield.
Thanks go to Liz Hale for the story
