"Wear something colourful... we'll try and get you on the front cover."
That's what they told me in preparation for a photoshoot with the Sunday Times last week. It was to promote my new book, Driving The Green, and for that reason I looked for the most 'colourful' items of golf clothing I had. It didn't take long to realise that my red plaid trousers were the only contender.
Yes, I know, 'colourful' doesn't necessarily mean 'tasteless' but this is golf we're talking about.
Turns out that Liz Hurley and I are on the same wavelength, as she wore a red plaid shirt for her photoshoot. Maybe she'd heard about my pants. And maybe that's why they put her on the front cover and not me. I can't think of any other reason.
It was a great spread and I got to talk about my travels and ten of my favourite courses. Thanks to the ST, Ruth, Graeme, Jason and Richie.
