It's the eve of the Workplace Challenge ladies golf tournament and I've just got home after getting in a bit of last minute practice.

Week two and despite a few of my shots skimming the hole, I failed to sink a single solitary putt. The intention to take on some extra practice during the week was there but with one excuse after another it never really materialised.

This week the scene was set. As Wednesday, my day off, came around I...
