Captainís Log: Unfortunately Captain Vincent had to withdraw from the tour at very short notice due to work commitments and jetted off to Japan. However he was there in spirit disguised in a dressed up tailors dummy and has never been more popular. His log would have gone something like this: Thank you Paul for standing in for me at the eleventh hour and Pete for picking up the pieces. I did mean to confirm the booking with the hotel before I withdrew and sorry I forgot to sort out the finances and mention the hotel was being renovated.  Never mind  although we had to eat outside in a marquee at least the bar was unaffected! All weekend all these strangers kept on coming up to me and asking how I was, especially that guest relations woman who even wrenched me off my stand and swept me around the dance floor. Saint decided to play me a tune on his guitar and sing me a song accompanied by the chaps, nice gesture. I didn't go out on the Mathern course which I understand was OK, but then that nice Uncle Gazza took me for ride in his buggy around the Old Course on the final day which was a real treat. Sorry it messed up your game Gazza; It wasn't my fault my head kept falling off. Overall we had a really good time and congratulations to John & Mick - winners again and to Saint for drawing 'the Jack'. Finally on a sad note, 3 days and nights with a stand stuck up where the sun don't shine took its toll. It convinced me to hang up my clubs and never go on tour again.
