I'm not just a golf journalist. I've experienced the many joys this game has to offer, as well as its frequent come-uppances. I've struggled with my swing, but also pulled off those wonderful, but all-too-rare, perfect shots that always leave you wanting to play another 18. I've cried as Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters, screamed at the television set as Phil Mickelson blew the 2006 U.S. Open, and marvelled at the awesome talents of Tiger Woods. I'm not just a golf journalist - I'm a real golfer, and I invite you to join me in this wonderful sport.
