Tom Henshaw’s golf lessons

Dear Editor, How entertaining it was to see Tom Henshaw’s progress in learning the elusive fundamentals of the game of golf. I too had some lessons last summer from the skilled and ever-patient Luis at Boavista.

Golf, so important a pastime for the Algarve, consistently proves itself as the most rewarding and frustrating game in existence. For those of us, like Tom, who persevere in attempting to achieve a reasonable standard of skill (i.e. avoiding embarrassing ourselves on the golf course), the key message seems to be “don’t give in!”. Please keep us updated on Tom’s progress so we can keep the whole learning experience light-hearted. Excellent stuff!
