This week I have been listening, fascinated, to the audiobook of Tom Bower’s Revenge. This chronicles the relationship of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
What does this have to do with golf? You may ask.
Well Chapter 5 had my eyes on stalks, and my mouth hanging open.
It is called The Irishman.
And it talks about Meghan Markle’s relationship with –
Granted it was when he was twenty five, had recently broken up with Caroline Wozniacki and was the toast of golf having won two majors in a year.
And Meghan, according to the actor reading the book who does a simpering voice when reading her reported speech, had a plan. She wanted an Englishman, and was on the hunt. The little fact of the Irish Sea between England and Ireland and his already transatlantic accent could be overlooked.
This was all eight years ago, and thankfully Rory is now happily settled elsewhere.
To find out more you’ll have to read the book. It is excellent and fascinating.
What a woman she is. Unbelievable.
Ye gods. We could have had Meghan Markle on TV every week on the PGA Tour.
But a funny twist. In the interview with John Daly below, you will hear JD talk of his genuine love for the Royal Family. He says if Princess Diana was alive today, he would have been married to her.
John Daly as a father-in-law! He would definitely get her to behave!
