When I was watching Peter Senior lose yet another play-off on the US Champions Tour, I was reminded how tough the whole gig can be  can be on 50 year old nerves. I remember my first Seniors Event like it was yesterday. That's because at my age, I cant remember what the hell I did yesterday.

Here' is my account of that week… well the first instalment anyway….

It feels like years ago when I was explaining how I was soon reaching that milestone for a golf professional, “50” and now suddenly I’m 20 minutes away from my first event. “The Handa Senior Australian Open”. Despite the fact that it’s only a practise round, I’m as apprehensive as Fred Nile at the opening of Break Back Mountain II and Shane Warne at a friends kids christening. Since I last played for this kind of money, I have whacked on some kilo’s, lost some more of my fringe and developed a limp I haven’t had an ounce of preparation and I’m about to put my fragile golf game on public display in the biggest senior golf tournament in the country....

Its not often I’m part of golfing history.. well if you don’t count being the tallest male golf pro in the world to be out driven by a 14 year old girl anyway. As part of my, writing and talking about golf job, I chose to caddy for Australian ALPG Tour Player Lyndsey Wright in the Women's NSW Open last week at Oatlands in Sydney and I must say it was a brilliant experience. Not only did my charge come within a sniff of winning but we had the opportunity to play in the final group with the worlds next golfing superstar in Lydia Ko. This 14 year-old Kiwi is something to behold with her laser like long game, deft touch and fearless putting stroke, but the feature that struck me the most was Lydia herself. She is easily the sweetest kid on Planet Earth who not only respects everyone around her but the game of golf and all it stands for.

I cant imagine any other kid I would rather intrust our game with for the next generation…..
