Attended the Bonallack Trophy in Bangalore, India these last few days. It featured 12 of the best amateur golfers from Europe and 12 from AsiaPacific countries.It was a Ryder-Cup style format and Sir Michael was in attendance! He's was quite the amateur in his day -- competed in 9 Walker Cups and won the British Amateur 4 times!
I got to talk and meet most of players during the time I was there. I also met and interacted with some of the top coaches/admistrators from Europe and Asia. All were very, very nice and modest individuals. Europe ended up winning 17.5 to 14.5. The singles matches today were full of tension and for awhile it looked like the AsiaPac team might turn the tide. But in the end Europe prevailed.
Here's a pic of five of the players just after they won (L-R): Gavin Moynihan, James Ross, Ryan Evans, Robbie Van West, Mads Soegaard. All great guys. And wearing FJ DNA's!

Here's a pic of me decked out in FJ gear with AsianPac player Karan Taunk. He's a great guy and he's wearing new FJ Sports!
