The Weather is just brilliant for golf~~~

The weather of late has been gradually improving. Temperatures reaching the high 70’s and the winds low ~ less than 10MPH. Ideal golfing weather and with ‘The Masters’ this week, it makes life Buzz………..
All I need now is a positive telephone call from a special place, to top it off……….


It’s such a good day in the Mountains…

What a lovely day – the weather is starting to change for the better – Must be in anticipation of
“The Masters”.


Another Littlest Golfer post :)

An Addition to my Bag

I have incorporated a small but significant addition to my golf bag this week -

 The Littlest Golfer logo.

It is a pleasure to be associated with such a Company.


A further 5 Years in the USA……..

The best news I have could have wished for came through yesterday. CCA Logo

My P1-A visa has been approved.

The P1-A visa is for Internationally Recognised Athletes.

Individual Athletes Eligibility Criteria

You must be coming to the United States to participate in individual event, competition or performance in which you are internationally recognized with a high level of achievement; evidenced by a degree of skill and recognition substantially above that ordinarily encountered so that the achievement is renowned, leading or well known in more than one country. Screen_Shot_2013-02-11_at_5_32_31_PMThe Littlest Golfer Inc.

This will allow me to continue to work as part of the USPGA, allowing me to compete at local and national events from sectional up to and including the major tours when eligible. The visa is granted for 5 years and can be renewed for another 5 if required.

Just like Home – Well Maybe.

Living and working in the USA does have it’s benefits but working up in the Mountains of North Carolina -

“Sometimes it just seems like home”.

Snow NC


Snow fall on the golf course in the morning but gone by lunch time is the only difference to the North East of England.

It sometimes takes several weeks for the snow to melt away back home.  I certainly have 4 seasons here whilst back home it appears that they all merge into one.

What can be guaranteed here in NC – give it a few weeks and the big yellow orb will be glowing once again and the temperatures will rise ~

“Back home ~ That could be a different story”.

Practice during the Fall…………..

A little practice late in the day at this time of the year brings a few added obstacles.

Autumn / Fall of 2012 ~ Country Club of Asheville, North Carolina

The colours at this time of the year are amazing.
