It is great to have grass roots football back again. For many still at school it is what they look forward to each weekend. Playing with their friends, hopefully scoring a goal and winning the match. And just like the professionals, they want to go through to the next round of the cup or climb the league and get promoted. The emotional roller coaster of a 7-4 win this weekend was evident throughout my son’s team, during a game that was played in all four of our British seasons over 90 minutes. As linesman, I was pleased to still have a luke-warm coffee in a flask, left over from the morning’s golf.
Bryson DeChambeau, despite the best efforts of the US Golf Association, won the US Open at Winged Foot earlier this month. His nickname, “The Scientist”, has been well deserved as he progressed from his original studious approach to the game, to bulking up his body to become the longest hitter on the professional tour.
