Glad I saved this Bernhard Langer designed links course for the final day as I’m a huge fan of links golf and this course played beautifully in the fairways and punished dearly in the rough; exactly how links golf should be.

One of my favourite golf courses that I’ve ever had the chance to play. Beautifully kept and amazing course that you can still see why it hosted the Irish Open from 1996 to 1999.

Great little links course and very affordable. Some really fun and challenging holes but does suffer on the back nine with the multiple crossed tee shots and fairways.

Braid - Bang
The first track and my favourite track off the new(ish) Braid record.
Such a fun and unique way to show off a city by photographer/film maker Rob Whitworth. This Flow Motion style is a cool way to keep the timelapse style that has become popular very fresh.
Barcelona is still on my bucket list of places to visit too.
First home game back at The Lane this season and it was a great game, a great result and a great atmosphere. You couldn’t have wished for anything better, and although it’s still very early days I’m quietly confident in Pochettino, the philosophy and tactics he’s instilled already, and the team in making this a better year than last year in so many ways.
..and it more than likely won’t last long so we have to enjoy it while we can..
"We’re top of the league! We’re top of the league! We’re Tottenham Hotspur! We’re top of the league!"

Excellent way to start the new season!
And what a debut for Eric Dier, I thought he played well in last week’s friendly against Schalke and today he was solid as a centre back, covered well at right back after Naughton was sent off, and that goal was the icing on the cake.
Would have loved to have been in the crowd today, but QPR at home to look forward to next week.
Such sad news to hear of the passing of Robin Williams.
He was a truly unique and amazing individual. More than just a comedian, but never failed to make me laugh or smile.
Rest in Peace Robin.

Good game, good result, good weather, good atmosphere and good to be back at the Lane today for Spurs vs Schalke, the last of the preseason friendlies.
The team looked great, stayed in possession, and kept Schalke away from our end. I was especially impressed with Eric Dier making his first start in a Spurs shirt. Only worrying aspect for me was that we still aren’t converting a lot of goalscoring chances but I’m sure that will click quickly once the games start coming thick and fast.
Didn’t manage to get a ticket for West Ham away so next game for me will be the home opener against QPR. Can’t wait for the season to start now!
#White Hart Lane
I first posted about layer tennis back in 2010 (I think.. it was certainly a while ago) so I’m glad to see that Coudal and Adobe have partnered up once again to bring it back for season 4 starting with 2 ‘exhibition matches’ today.
Check out both matches from today: Koxvold vs Reyes and Kleon vs Anderson from today (the above pictures are volleys 1, 2, 3 and 4 from Koxvold vs Reyes).
