    Steve McMahon teeing off prior to winter

    A big congratulations go to David Octigan upon finally losing his Thursday bridesmaid tag.

    A quick quote for this week-

    At 15 we put down my bag to hunt for a ball, found the ball, lost the bag.
    – Lee Trevino (during the 1971 Open at Royal Birkdale)
