Scottish Golfer Wins ‘THE SURE THING’ Drawing

CONGRATULATIONS TO BRUCE ROBERTSON, winner of my free drawing for THE SURE THING: The Making and Unmaking of Golf Phenom Michelle Wie.

“This is a great surprise,” Bruce said in an email.

Bruce is a test engineering manager who works in Glasgow, Scotland, and lives nearby. He is married and has two sons.

“They have taken all my time to keep them involved in their pursuits, leaving me no time to concentrate on golf,” said the 21-handicapper. “A weak excuse but I am sticking to it.”

Bruce is a member of Torrance House in East Kilbride. “I am part of a group of around 20 players who are out on the course all year on a Sunday morning at 8 sharp come rain or shine. They are a great bunch of guys ranging in ages from the late 30s to mid 80s with all levels of ability.”

Bruce is also part of a professional group of 20 engineers that plays for the Auld Alliance Trophy. The annual golf event alternates between Scotland and France. This year the competition was contested on Scottish soil at Crail, Kingsbarn and St. Andrews.

“It is a mixture of the finest golf and malt whiskey,” he said, “so always a great time.”

Thanks to all who entered this book drawing. There will be future drawings, so keep coming back and entering.

Any truth to the rumor that the second place winner got TWO copies of the book ? :-)

That would be nice, Court. I wish I had two more books to give away.

hmm - guess that old joke is older than I thought. The giveaway for tickets to see the worst team in the league...the winner gets a pair of tickets...the second place finisher has to take two pair...
