My Passionate Sport & Hobby

If you don’t find me at my desk, you will find me on the greens. My second passion is golf. Rarely a day goes by when am not golfing with my buddies. I have participated in innumerable tournaments world-wide, taken many golf vacations and even golf on vacations. I golf whenever possible. From my home in Dubai, a step out of my backyard leads to the greens.

Golf Trivia

Q: In golf, where did the term 'Caddie' come from?

A. When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl,Louis, King of France learned that she loved the Scots game 'golf'. So he had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her. In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it into 'caddie.
