Royal boost for golf?

November 14th, 2014

It is always pleasant to have an opportunity to publish a photo of the Duchess of Cambridge. For those of us working in golfing media this doesn’t happen very often but perhaps this could soon change. Following her recent visit to see young athletes (including golfers) in training perhaps this talented hockey player might be persuaded to join the growing number of young ladies who are taking up the game. Just a thought!
