It would have been perfect for you Rob C when you were under 30.

Good to hear the no smoking stance has lasted since Easter, so hope to see you out on those short red courses later in the year.

I'd like to see you guys racing and make a video out of it.

You're a sicko Jamie - although a video of Garden after our One Tree Hill race (he won to be fair) would satisfy your sadistic cravings

it has to be a head to head race with the soundtrack to chariots of fire;-)

no need to shoot in slow-mo though?

Slow motion would have been necessary 20 years ago for Garden's legs - he had such a short stride length that to run as fast as he did was like watching the $6M-man.
