Regular updates on what I have been up to around the world.

All work with a little play
9 July 2013

Hi there everyone, and once again I know it's been a while but I've been working so hard on my golf that everything else has had to take a back seat.

I've been having a very frustrating period as my work on the range has been just spot on but I've not been able to get it out there on the golf course. But the swing is feeling in great shape and I'm looking forward to getting into the groove at Castle Stuart this week.

The course is in great shape and I only have happy memories from here as the last time I played this event I went on to claim my first major the following week.

Speaking of which, I've had a couple of visits to Muirfield recently and it is certainly going to be a good and fair test when the 142nd Open Championship begins next Thursday, especially if the wind blows.

I have a new TaylorMade Driver in the bag this week, it's a prototype SLDR 460 with a Project X 7.0 shaft and goes like a dream so I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces.

It was a great honour for me to have my autobiography, An Open Book, nominated for two awards in the British Sports Book Of The Year Awards, the awards went elsewhere but it was still an honour to be nominated.

Off the course, I've been doing a spot of fishing and was up in Donegal last week but no salmon were to be had, just a few trout which didn't quite offer the same excitement!

Alison and I had a great evening at Dunluce Castle where we saw Van Morrison performing live which was just brilliant and even the sun came out to make things even better!

So, it's back to work for the next fortnight and I'm looking forward to some good results.

Cheers, DC.
