The world is certainly a small place. We had an E-mail from Aberdonian Jim Hardie yesterday, saying he was in Christchurch ... and a few hours later we had an E-mail from Banchory's rookie tour pro, James Byrne, pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, to say that he too was in Christchurch - to play in the New Zealand Open - and could I put him in touch with Jim Hardie!
Jim Hardie takes up the story again this morning in another E-mail from Christchurch:

Well, just when you think life is pretty straight forward! I got in touch with James Byrne as requested and also asked Sir Bob (Charles) to look James out ... to discover that they were playing together in the NZ Open pro am !
Spooky or what? Anyway it seems they got on well, and even more spooky was the fact they played with Ken Fergus, who happens to be another good friend of mine. He is president of Shirley Links, where i played my first game last week, and yes it was Ken who was my partner!
Sir bob phoned me earlier tonight to tell me about the pro-am. He was very impressed with James Byrne, and also it appears now laughing in the knowledge that James once beat me 7 and 6 when a mere 14 year old !
Hope I catch some fish!
All good stuff.
Best regards from New Zealand

Jim Hardie
