My business partner John Davey sent me this picture which he captured at the recent ‘Cleaner Products Open’ golf tournament at ‘The RAC Woodcote Park’ course in Epsom, Surrey. It was on a long par 5 and I managed to land my 3rd shot on this lovely mound. You can’t see the ball in the picture but it was deep in the rough, to my amazement I managed to get down on the back of the ball and pitched it about five foot from the pin, I then proceeded to make the putt which save my par. The moral of the story is ‘when you think your having a rough day, be positive, things may turn around’
