Fiona has a Dog's Day on the Golf Course !!

Had a bad day at Golf yesterday --- well Fiona Roger made us laugh when she told us that she had 2 bad holes --- You have to have a sense of humour you know to play golf !!-- Especially when you have a 9 at the first and a 12 at the 15th. Fiona however, was still smiling when she realised that with the stableford adjustment to her score her handicap did not go up as she had played to her handicap !! ) --- This is her "Doggie" -- not quite (celebrating the occasion)!
