Maybe not then, though we do have a car booked for Sat & Sun. Saw Turtle in the bay by Turtle island this afternoon when we booked a speedboat.

What followed was a "a blizzard of triple and quadruple bogeys, ruined by a solitary par"

Maurice and his wife Jean flew to nearby Detroit. According to one relative it was "the first time they'd been out of the house together since the gas oven exploded".

"We hit it off well though and they came out to my house for dinner and we took them on a boat on the lake - although that was cut short because Maurice got a bit seasick, which was ironic given he used to be in the merchant navy."

He used the names James Beau Jolley (Beau after his dog and pronounced Beaujolais because he "played like a fine red wine"), Arnold Palmtree as a nod to Mr Palmer, and the frankly brilliant Count Manfred von Hoffmenstal. He managed to get through as Swiss player Gerald Hoppy - Gerald being his middle name and Hoppy a nickname given to him by his mother - and he played nine holes before being rumbled.

He entered the 1990 championship as Gene Pacheki - reports differ as to whether this was in homage to Danecki or a play on words around the surname, pronounced 'pay cheque'. He was a respectable three over after two holes before he was discovered and hauled off the course, despite wanting to just finish off the third where he "had a good chance of a par".

Brilliant!!! :-)

Finally received my home shirt in the correct size. Still think it looks a bit crappy though and will probably never wear it outside the curtilage of my house.
