We were all at the 'European Golf & Leisure Show' this weekend at the AECC. We had Graeme Lornie and Hamish Love giving free lessons to over 80 kids. We also had a long putting competition from 35 feet, anyone holing a putt went into a draw for the chance to win some fantastic Wilson prizes. Over 850 people had a go over the two days which was great. The whole show was very good especially as it was the first year, which is never easy.

I have opened an ebay account to allow us to sell items to raise funds for my Foundation. At the moment there is a signed Callaway Tour bag of mine on there. It's a fantastic cause, so get bidding!! I have been hitting balls at home all this week as the weather has been shocking. It feels good but of course being indoors I can't see the flight so hopefully next week will be better.

Please come along to support the show and my Foundation.
Marian and I spent the weekend at Culloden House Hotel along with some close friends. We had a super time, the weather was much better up in Inverness. We walked out to Alturlie Point on the Moray Firth on Saturday morning, the scenery was superb. Our thanks go to the staff at Culloden House who looked after us extremely well.
We were all at Pittodrie last night for the Scottish Cup replay. It was a very poor performance by Aberdeen who lost to a lower league team again. I understand fans have a right to vent their frustration but throwing things and spitting at the manager is not acceptable in my opinion. In saying that I can not think of one Aberdeen player who would get pass marks for last nightâs performanceâ¦â¦very, very disappointing.
Craig, Michael and I played a few holes at Portlethen this morning with their cousin, Sean. It was pretty cold and then the rain came on so Michael and I headed for the clubhouse after 6 holes. Portlethen has improved quite a bit since the last time I played it. Craig and I played a few holes at Deeside in the afternoon, we had supper at the Ashvale which was the first time we had been there for years. We then headed to the Sports Village to watch our Foundation football teams going through their paces at training. I also managed to catch up with Jim Leighton who has been doing some goalkeeping coaching for us, he coaches 6 kids on a Monday night which is really good of him.
