So, if we set ‘par’ at 61, then I’m the youngster of this fearsome foursome pictured below.

And yesterday¬†the ‘young bucks’ (myself and, to the right, IAADFS’s Michael Payne, who plays off just a few strokes over par under my system) took the money off the high handicappers, industry veterans and greats Harry Diehl, Gebr Heinemann (22 over par and still going strong), and Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Duty Free, 12 over par).

A great way to start the annual Duty Free Show of the Americas, where I have set up my latest Moodie Davitt Report Interim Bureau.

My first birdie of the day

I missed last year’s show, due to ill health and am delighted to be back this year in good form, even (for once in my life) on the golf course.

From one quality foursome to another. As always, Orlando kicked off with a traditional Friday night private dinner hosted by long-time IAADFS President David Bernstein. David welcomed us with a poignant tribute to our great lost friend Pancho Motta, who passed away suddenly just after last year’s show.

It was good to see Pancho’s wife Loraine (pictured right) last night. Pancho’s passing has left a huge hole in Loraine’s life and our thoughts and love are with her constantly. Loraine is pictured with (from left) Beverly Johansson, Breeda McLoughlin and Pat Bernstein. Four of the finest and strongest women you could ever meet.

Rest in peace Lars Johansson and Pancho Motta, your wives carry your spirit, humanity and dignity with you every minute of every day.
