THE golf writers at the Volvo Masters golf tournament at Valderrama, Spain, at the weekend may have been slightly bemused by the main item in the goody bag they received from the event’s organisers.

Which, had he not accidentally left it behind, might have served Lawrence Donegan well.

For, on his way to the airport, to return home, the car he was driving had a puncture.
