I love this picture. This is me hunched over the ball on the 9 hole par 3 golf course on campus. I have forgotten how much a round was but we had many a fun session hacking our way around.

Sometimes we played beer golf having a bottle of beer on each tee - it was always fun trying to get past the ticket guy without clanking the bottles and arousing suspicion! 

The guy mocking my stance is Chris Jackson from Bermuda. A famous shout-out used to come from our friend Timmy Stevenson when he would have a swing - "Where's me ball?" - in his Northern Irish brogue. It was inevitably hooked over the fence and was with the cows. Happy Days.
