It was thrilling to see, although, in my opinion, the weather conditions did not allow Portstewart to display the true test she offers.

Being in the Media Centre, as part of the 'golf media' has been an interesting, enthralling and educational experience... so a thank you to both the European Tour and the Irish Examiner for giving me the opportunity. I got to see some fabulous golf... and some not so fabulous golf... meet and interview interesting people, and see first hand how an operation of this size is run.
I tip my hat to the volunteers - the park & ride attendants particularly - who remained upbeat every day and met and helped everyone with a smile.
Roll on next year when the remote beauty of Inishowen will be on display.
