Daddo: You can’t ignore the ‘E’ word

Daddo: You can’t ignore the ‘E’ word

DADDO: How Good Is Golf?

DADDO: How Good Is Golf?

By way of introduction, I’ve tried to figure how our game got its tendrils into me and weaselled away until I was under her spell. It all happened a long time ago, I know that, but it’s hard to peg the actual moment. 26 Jun 2017
