From Miami With Love!

I'm writing this blog from my room at The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Cables, Miami. I thought I might be relaxing on a sun lounger on this Sunday afternoon, but it's raining outside at the moment and not expected to clear any time soon, but more about this trip in my next blog. I'm looking forward to watching the final round of the men's US Open, and as I'm on US time, for once I won't have that tired Monday morning feeling tomorrow after staying up to watch the golf.

The week before last I attended an AIG Women's British Open media event at Woburn. What a treat to have dinner at Woburn Abbey, a place that I have never visited before - I'm not sure why - the surroundings are beautiful. Sitting next to Charley Hull, who had just arrived home from the US that morning, she was on great form and although feeling tired, she was excitedly talking about her boyfriend, her new house and forthcoming wedding. She's unique, so natural, doing things her way, and really enjoying life away from golf.

The following day was a great experience - playing in a fourball with Catriona Matthew, along with the BBC's Eilidh Barbour and Times journalist Cathy Harries. You do learn a lot when playing with a pro, especially watching their tempo. I did try and replicate Catriona's short game shots! Fortunately it was a day where I showed up as a golfer and played ok, so I was happy. It was a really enjoyable fourball, as any round always is at Woburn - this time on the Marquess course. Catriona is busy considering players and pairings for this year's Solheim Cup and relatively quiet by nature, you can see that as a captain she'll have a really calming influence. Both of us were happy to promote our Skechers' golf shoes - if you were wondering what the picture is about! I'd worn mine straight out of the box that morning - no complaints and love the silver colour, as it goes with anything.

It's still raining ... but until next time.
