Today the sun shone and the weather was great. There was a bit of a hold up on the first tee due to a large party playing in front of the guys. The other problem we had were the caddies. Some of the guys ended up with kids carrying their bags, whether this was because of the large demand for caddies today or some other reason, we didn't get to find out. Fact of the matter was the kids were useless and had no interest in the job ! I mentioned it to the caddymaster and unfortunately there were some political reasons as to why these kids were working. All I will say to Bob is good luck sorting that out.
No great tales from the golf course except "Bandit Bill" is still doing the business and could have all the money tied up before the last game at Muirfield.
The interesting part of the day came after the golf was finished. When you play Gullane Number One you become a member of the golf club for the day, and it has to be said that one or two of the group abused their privileges, didn't you Bruce !! So by the time we went for dinner, at a place called the Old Clubhouse across the road certain people had difficulty focusing on the menu.
Dinner was great and the portions huge, so much so some guys didn't really need a main course. As the wine and the beer flowed one or two decided it would be a good idea to go into Edinburgh and revisit a few of the pubs they went to last Friday when they first arrived here. It has to be said the driver was non to keen on the idea but fair play to the guys they kept their side of the bargin and were back on the bus by 11pm, thank you. They were all home and tucked in by midnight, some bunch of John Waynes these are turning out to be ! To the wives and families out there who read this you have absolutely no concerns when you let these guys out, unlike some groups I've had in the past.
Once again the lemonade kid was in bed early, along with Bill and Rick (that's not the same bed by the way but bedrooms), the rest as we know sampling various drinks at Mathers Bar in Edinburgh. So a question for you all. Which one of the guys is so tidy that he even makes his own bed up in the morning ? I'll have you know he made his bed so well that Patricia the lady who looks after the Colonels didn't think he'd slept in it !!! I'll let you know when they have left the country.
Tomorrow thity-six holes, North Berwick in the morning and Muirfield in the afternoon and there will be no trips to Edinburgh once that is done !
