My caddie Davy Kenny was at Murcar yesterday to take 20+ invited juniors through some course management tips for next week's Scottish Boys , I was also there but pretty much left Davy to strutt his stuff , he was very good and all the boys really enjoyed it , course management is something I feel needs more attention and we plan to do more work on it using Scott Henderson ,Greig Hutcheon and  Alistair Forsyth who have so much experience to pass onto the kids

Paul Lawrie Golf Centre Inchmarlo 23 March

We are delighted and excited to announce we will take over the Inchmarlo golf resort from the 1st of May , it has huge potential and we're all looking forward to making it a special place for members and visitors to visit , we have no plans to reopen the 18 hole course but will use the old 18th green as a new short game area

Monday 21st March

Today was our final day of playing we have both had a great time and have played 117 holes of golf which is great , we kept score with Craig winning by 2 shots , amazingly we were tied playing our final hole with Craig making a very easy birdie to my very poor bogey meant he won by two shots 😡 lol.   We fly home tomorrow morning at 02 30am through Heathrow , massive thanks to everyone at the Abu Dhabi golf club for looking after us so well , the weather was a little windy to start with but the last two days have been perfect and to play as many holes as we have has made the trip a huge success

Thursday 17th March

Craig and I flew to Abu Dhabi for 5 days of playing and practice , we are staying at the Westin which is onsite at Abu Dhabi golf club home of the hsbc championship , we went round the shorter 9 hole course 3 times today as the big course was very busy but the wee course is brilliant and has some lovely holes on it

Friday 4th March

Marian and I are off on a cruise around the Caribbean this week with the Reids and the Morrisons. We flew to Miami then boarded the oasis of the seas on Saturday morning which has to be seen to be believed. Brian and Audrey have been on a cruise before but it's first time for us and Alan and Val , the ship is huge with so much to do and with over 20 restaurants will be plenty to eat , we swam with dolphins yesterday which was incredibly cool and not something I'd ever have thought I would do but it was brilliant , the weather hasn't been brilliant but we have loved it anyway

Wednesday 2nd March

I was up at duff house Royal today for this weeks north east alliance , it was a pretty nice morning but it got really cold on the 6th and by the 7th the snow was pelting down and play was abandoned, it's a pity as I havn't played any golf lately and was really looking forward to it , the course was in good shape considering the weather it's had recently ,  one of the lets say older members of the club came over to Craig and I this morning and after saying hello he said to Craig that he only had one problem and that was he looked like me ..... The old boy was killing himself laughing as he walked off.  Brilliant
