Furniture World, Ayr comes to Archers bed rescue
It was very tense. Royal Troon, 1st hole and Robert Hunter had hooked his drive into the gorse. I knew we should have picked David Buchanan.
Fortunately Malcolm Clark, owner and progenitor of the world famous Furniture World brand, drove straight into the bunker. It was my turn, and though ill practised and fatigued with over work, manfully I ploughed my ball straight up the fairway, as far as the eye could see. The pressure was off.
Well you all have heard of golf widows and golfing bores? Let me disappoint you. Enough about golf. That’s what all golf bores say.
Our second shots were even more tense. Robert bungled his again. By this time I was thinking we should have picked Paul Longmore. And I shanked my second at right angles towards Ailsa Craig. Malcolm, he pitched out the bunker to within 12 feet of the pin.
It did indeed look as though Archers Sleepcentre were to be roundly humiliated.
HANG ON A MINUTE, this isn’t what this blog is about!
It’s about “What did Furniture World ever do for Archers Sleepcentre?” Golf, after all, is as boring as everyone says it is.
Here goes. It’s quite a long list by the way, starting back in 2004, when we first took over Big Mal’s Ayr shop…..
Furniture World gave us Jim Clydesdale, Archers Schweinsteiger of Ayr. So fast no mortal salesman can get in quicker.
Yes, all these things and much, much more did Furniture World bestow on our bejewelled Archers Sleepcentre.
But most important of all, on the 18th tee, Malcolm told me to lean a wee bit more on my right foot and hold my swing longer at the top. And I birdied the final hole at Royal Troon.
Tiger, you can keep your birds. I’m happy with my birdie. Thanks Big Mal. I owe you a few.
