DON’T forget to wind your clocks back next weekend.
British Summer Time officially ends next Sunday and it is the ninth before the Christmas period.
On the downside it gets darker much earlier at night, but I quite like the feel of the season in the run up to Christmas and the sense of excitement.
The lights in the shops twinkle at night and the Christmas lights start appearing from the end of November.
Although the clocks may go back next Sunday, winter does not officially start until Monday, December 21.
Meanwhile Colin Montgomerie has pledged to do better than Nick Faldo at next year’s Ryder Cup, which will be held at Celtic Manor in Wales.
Nick Faldo was criticised when he was captain. When Faldo played he kept himself to himself and he failed to gel the team together and also had difficulty communicating with the press.
Monty is more of a team player and, although he has not been as successful as Faldo, he is very highly respected by the top players on the European tour.
He also has a very intense character and I hope he does not get too carried away.
Montgomerie will be pitting his wits against the American Corey Pavin – another strong character.
