Many congratulations to David Howell on winning the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship last weekend. I had the pleasure of meeting him at Broome Manor golf course, Swindon, soon after he had joined the European PGA Tour, when he came back to visit some of the people he played with when he was a junior there. Even at that young age I was very impressed with both his attitude and his demeanour; a credit to the game. Ever since then I have followed his progress and was extremely sorry when illness caused him to fall down the World rankings. Welcome Back!
