Greetings from The Four Seasons, Prague! I have a stunning suite on the 2nd floor of the classic wing ... more on that tomorrow ..

It's rather late and I am totally wiped out so I will put myself to bed very soon.

It WAS a long day!

First, checked out of The Kempinski and drove the 80 kms to Pilsen - the home of Pilsner Urquell - that famous beer. It has been produced here since 1842 ... firstly in wood barrels and now in huge stainless steel vats.

We met with the "trade brewmaster" who knows more about Pilsen beer than anyone alive! Pilsner produces 300 million bottles of beer a year! Coo!

From there we popped to the Plzen Golf Club ... a stunning course. My Pro for the afternoon was Martin Vancl.

This club has an amazing par-3 11th hole ... an island green, the same size and dimensions as the 17th green at the TPC Sawgrass! We had a brilliant afternoon and I did rather well! It must have been the beer ... I drank rather a lot ...

OK - sleep!

Oh by the way: if you want a wee laugh ... this clip is from the Istanbul show:

Song of the Day: Love Wars - Womack & Womack

Weather: Cold ... then hot ... rainy ... then sunny!
