I have to say that Yas Links is one of my favourite courses in the UAE, even though my previous cards wouldn't agree with that statement! I also played the National when I lived there and would say that they are totally different. Obviously Yas is a modern Links like course and I will be be interested to see how the course handles more traffic. I have painted there, a couple of Abdulla Al Naboodah hosted 'Emirates Invitationals'. So to kick this season off here are some photos of my previous encounters at Yas Links.
pga wentworth - last chance for ryder cup spots?
Well... It's been a long tough road for the guys on the European Tour this and last season. Recently the returning crowds have cheered on the leaders on Sundays making the events more exciting. The Ryder Cup will be deafening! Before that however is the Iconic Event, The BMW PGA Championship, being played at Wentworth G C in Surrey England this week. Ofcourse The Race To Dubai- DP World Championship is not far off for the top guys, so there is plenty to play for. I still sit here twiddling my thumbs because of covid bubbles and lack of invites but I still look forward to the fantastic play, I hope things will change soon.

Team Europe Victory
First of, Well done to the European Team and Well played to both teams. Brilliant Golf from both sides and nail biting towards the end. What a showing by Ireland's, Leona Maguire! Charley Hull gets cheered on from my neck of the woods as she is Touring golf pro for Woburn golf club. I always think she shows no fear and this has boosted her already successful career on the LET and LPGA Tours. So, Great Victory let's hope the guys can do the same. Good luck to them at the Ryder Cup later this month at Whistling Straits.
Another feel for a St Andrews Painting.
