It is not often I put a more "personal" post up on the blog but hell it's my blog so I can do what I like! I have just finished reading "Open Links" by Dominic Holland and if you like your golf then this really is a must read for two reasons. First of all it really is a good read - once I finally got round to reading it I couldn't put it down. It is warm, humerous and gives a great insight into the life of a fictitious struggling golf pro who has one day of glory. Secondly all proceeds go to the Anthony Nolan Trust which raises funds to help save the lives of people with blood cancer. Having been close to this horrible disease with my Mum who has thankfully been in remission for many years then hopefully I can give a little something back by asking you to buy it and read it.

A bit short of time this week although to be honest I have struggled finding players to back this week in New Orleans with the Zurich Classic. It would appear that it has rained an awful lot in the area in recent weeks so the course should play soft and long, scores will be low with target golf and there could well be further interruptions with thunderstorms. That description is in part what led me to back John Merrick this week as those were the conditions in 2008 when he led going into the final round only to tire. He showed a liking for the course again the following year when 4th at the cut before fading but since then his course form has been average. He has struggled since his win at Riviera in 2013 but maybe something clicked when he played there a few months ago - he continued his awful start to the season but maybe it has now dawned on him his two year exemption is up. Since then he has made three of five cuts and was even second at the halfway stage last week - and it is worth noting he was third at the cut the week before he won mORe
