Round And Round

‘WE at Anorak Towers are still waiting for the phone call from Her Majesty inviting us to become an OBE or CBE or whatever they are to be called now for services to golf.

Nice work if you can swing it

After all, Britain cannot have too many ambassadors whose duty it is to play – or watch – the royal and ancient game at every opportunity.

And although Prince Andrew does his best to squeeze in as many holes as he can (and we’re talking about golf here) in between his other engagements, he cannot be everywhere.

Not that he doesn’t give it a damn fine shot (and we’re not talking about golf here), with the Mail catching up with him on the links at Royal Troon.

The paper says the Prince arrived in Scotland by helicopter from Lancashire where he had had two days of official engagements (Royal Birkdale, Formby and two rounds at Royal Lytham).

He then managed to squeeze in a game at Loch Lomond before walking round Troon, in his capacity as captain of the R&A, watching the world’s top players practise.

It is a busy schedule for any man, but especially for one who also has to be seen visiting, say, the Bahrain Grand Prix or lounging on a yacht surrounded by topless females.

We note from the Mail that the Prince has now availed himself of the services of financial guru Amanda (36-24-36) Thirsk as an ‘official controller’.

All we are saying is that if he needs any help carrying out his official duties, then he knows where we are.’
