    Re: The ulitmate golf prize is...

    To me the ultimate golf prize would something that I would never have access to, because money can'y get it for me. I've already got fitted clubs, I could buy a powacaddy if I wanted to, I could play round the top courses in the country. So any prize that I could get by just simply getting the credit card out wouldn't be an ultimate prize. But here are some of my ideas for the ultimate prize:

    Partner a top tour Pro in the Dunhill at St Andrews.
    4-ball at Augusta a week before the Masters with Dustin, Beef and Chris Woods.
    A years worth of of coaching from a top 10 coach.
    Weekend away golfing at the Monterrey Peninsula with Trevino, Nicklaus and Player. Imagine the stories that they would have.

    Mine would be a spot in a Pro-Am for a biggish event with a top pro, and all the VIP treatment from the sponsor on the day. Something money cant buy (well, my limited resources anyway!)

    Top 5 UK Courses/Open Rota courses in a year with expenses paid would also be pretty special

    Intensive coaching for a year at a quality facility and membership of a top course to work on my game, with access to top of the range equipment fitted for me, and a chance to play in a number of tour pro-ams culminating in a place in the Dunhill Links main field
