The new issue of Golf Monthly magazine is dedicated to the event, including a two page article on Ireland's Macreddin Golf Club, the only golf course in the British Isles to be designed by Paul McGinley.
I have a fourball for Macreddin (with two buggies) to give away. For your chance to win all you have to do is leave a comment below (with your email) listing your favourite golfing epitaph. Yes, a bit morbid I know, but so many great puns to be created. I've mine picked out already... 'At least it's a decent lie.'

As for the Ryder Cup, I am knee deep in the new book by Neil Sagebiel, entitled 'Draw in the Dunes'. It's the full story behind the Ryder Cup in 1969, when Nicklaus gave Jacklin a short but tricky putt on the 18th green. It was an iconic moment in sportsmanship that resonates to this day. The book will be reviewed on this blog shortly.

I love the Ryder Cup, but five vice-captains is getting to the point of absurdity.
I'll pick a 'winner' of the golfing epitaph next week.
