Editor's Comments

Hello my golfing friends,

What a great week it's been. I spent the weekend in Fuerteventura in order to bring you my first-hand report on the Spanish Open (officially the Canarias Open de España) and on Sunday I learned what goes into bringing you the photos which accompany all the reports in Golfing Weekly. A very exhausting day was spent in the company of the Getty Images staff photographer, Stuart Franklin, dashing backwards and forwards between the final two groups which it was clear from early in the day would produce the winner. We must have covered twice the distance that the golfers did, carrying cameras with two-foot telephoto lens and all the other gear that Stuart and the other Getty Images photographers use every week to capture the best moments from each day's play. As I flew back to Tenerife on Monday, Stuart was preparing to do it all over again in Milan at this week's Italian Open. Total respect, I don't think I'd survive a week doing his job.

More great news. This week we are pleased to be able to bring you the first of our weekly cartoon strips which are being drawn exclusively for Golfing Weekly by Roy Doty. Doty, as he signs his cartoons, has been working on our "Off the Cart Path" cartoon strip for a few weeks and the results are fantastic. This will certainly be a popular feature in future issues and the original drawings, which are available through golfing-weekly.com, are sure to become collector's items in years to come.

That's it for now. Don't forget, if there is anything you would like us to add to Golfing Weekly, or if you have any comments you would like to make, just drop us a line. This is your magazine and we want you to enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy putting it together.

All the best,

Andy Smith
