Travellers Rest Golf Group
This week I am pleased to report some excellent news. Firstly, I should like to offer my sincere congratulations to Ted Senior and his partner on the arrival of a baby daughter on Sunday 10th November. Baby Jennifer and her mother are both fit and healthy and Ted has been beaming all week.
Having your first baby at the age of sixty two may come as a shock to most people but knowing Ted as I do, I am sure he will take everything in his stride. Whether he will get to play as much golf as before is something we shall have to wait and see!
Ted Senior, new father of the week.
The second piece of good news was watching Paul Stanton win Thursday’s golf competition at Greenwood. Paul was telling me that after a disc exploded in his back around the turn of the year he spent a number of weeks in a wheelchair not knowing whether he would walk again, let alone swing a golf club. So seeing him make such a full recovery and watching his excellent golf was quite heartwarming and may I offer him my congratulations and admiration.
