Oliver Fisher lights up Loch Lomond for me


Great fun at the Scottish Open for a couple of days, where we decided to follow fellow Essex boy Oliver Fisher, just 18 years old. What a great tournament to do so: Oliver finished a very creditable joint 19th, worth nearly twenty-five grand, his biggest ever payday, and a great result so early in his first full season as a pro on the European Tour. He really looks to have the temperament to make a top class player, putting in some incredibly consistent rounds and showing no signs of visible distraction as he bangs it down the centre of fairway after fairway. Nice to meet his Mum, sister and coach too (his Dad caddies for him). This is one player to look out for over the next few years; remember where you read it first.

Talking of which, if you’re the sort of person who can persuade Ladbroke’s to give you odds on someone winning an event in ten years’ time, you could do a lot worse than ask them about Oscar Sharpe, who I’m told is a proverbial child prodigy. I may be referring back to this post about 2015…
