Glorious golf !

19 June 2013

Just a quick update as Gill had a op on her knee yesterday to clean up some cartilage and take out three small cysts but it turned out that her ACL has been ruptured for the past twenty years leaving her with grade 3 degenerative changes. Below is physio-speak from Gill about what they found:

‘Findings were old rupture of my ACL (can’t believe how many times I’ve suggested this over the last 20 years). Too late to reconstruct. Grade 3 changes on my tibia, gd 2 changes medial fem condyle, and 3 cysts which apparently keep forming in response to the ACL injury ! So he did small amount of microfracture on my tibia and lots of coblation and tidied it up.’

Meanwhile, Katie has started climbing at the Surrey Sports Park on a Friday afternoon while Millie and I play a few holes of golf, and it’s my favourite afternoon of the week! I had a fantastic afternoon of golf with Dave D, and Richard and Deborah Finlay on the 9th. We played at Dave’s course in Surbiton, which is a beautiful course and it was in great shape following their Club Championships. I had a chance to half the match on the 18th after an excellent approach shot but sadly had a rush of adrenalin and stroked my putt ten-footer way too hard. It hit the back of the cup and popped up into the air, threatening to drop into the hole, but it flopped out a couple of inches to the side. It was a lovely afternoon and Dave and Deborah play were deserved winners on the day. Deborah played beautifully, Dave sank some crucial putts late on, Richard was solid and Deborah kept saying, “he doesn’t drive like this when he’s playing with me!” and I missed so many fairways I’ve since taken my driver out of my bag and am now teeing off with my three-wood. Thanks Dave for a wonderful afternoon!

And speaking of golf, bravo to Justin Rose for a magnificent performance to win the US Open. Stunning achievement!
