When I met Gary Player

I’m sorry I missed Gary’s 80th Birthday. Please wish him a Happy Birthday from me here in Little Bookham Surrey England. I met Gary at The Grove GC near Watford in 2009. We got to play the 4th hole with him. This is a par three over water. I managed to hit it to eight feet and was so happy. Gary said ‘ what a shot, what a swing’ he asked me what my handicap was and on hearing it was 15 he laughed and asked if I was the Chairman of the handicap committee. Hilarious. He signed my Gary Player book Positive Golf. My father gave it to me when I was very young and in the book Gary taught me that to get anything out of life you have to work hard and have dedication. I am happily married to Louise for 33 years have a beautiful daughter Millie and a wonderful Son Robbie. I own my house , have no debt and I’m still passionate about golf. Not too bad when you consider I left Middlesbrough in North East of England in 1977 without a penny to my name. Middlesbrough has 50% unemployment. I’ve been blessed. Gary is my inspiration and I’m lucky enough to have watched him at The Open in 1977 and 1978 and saw his son Mark caddy for him. Magical man. Kindest and warm regards Robin K D Midgley
