50 years ago then! What would be your dream job?

A Knight of the Round Table
Or a round Knight! And what do you think you deserve to be in the next?

Nelson Mandela, – what a life, what a man, what a legacy!
Bill Bailey – legend of wit and humorous banter!
Seve Ballesteros & Ian Botham, undoubtedly my two biggest sporting heroes

Being far too loud!!
Quiet please on the tee! Best corporate jolly or incentive?
Either watching the final Ashes winning test at the Oval in 2005, or any Corporate Golf event. (all invites gratefully accepted!!!!)
Tee and Tea then! What are your passions outside the workplace?
Spending time with my daughter, playing as much golf as possible, running 2 touring cricket teams, (the Emeriti and The Stonyhurst Wanderers), and cooking amazing roast potatoes (to go with full roast & trimmings!)
How do you find time for golf! If they made a movie about your life, who would play you?
Ideally somebody bald!
Phil or Grant, take your pick! Who would be your dream date?
Charlize Theron or Kate Beckinsale
Strange they both wanted to date you too! Describe yourself in five words.
Loud, fun, competitive, caring and spontaneous
A noisy comedian, who wears a sombrero! BANDIT! Write your own eulogy/tribute.
This would be better coming from someone else!!! They might be a bit more objective!!!
