Being a Trucker IT is not my best subject. Just testing to see if I have managed to log in correctly.
If so I will keep you posted on the thousands of miles driven to keep the show on the road!
We share the driving so will keep you all updated from the varying events we attend.

Hey Jeff,

I hope you don't have a big red nose on the front of the truck. Lol!! Do you have a rota for driving and where do you sleep?

Re: 2011 Tour Blog

It takes the truck 4 days to get to Malaga. Our week starts on the Monday as most of our work is done on the practice days. So all the time the tournament is going on in Sicilly our truck will be on route to Andalucia.

I was thinking the same .So they are obviously missing the Scicilian Open and going straight to the Andalucian .It will take a few days to drive down i expect.

They aren't the only ones missing Italy either.It's a new event i believe and the top Italian name there is Rocca? Mannessaro has an invite to the Traditions in the US and the Molinari's aren't playing at all!

Re: 2011 Tour Blog

Bit of a non-event in Italy then. I think Monty is the star attraction! Bit of a nightmare picking our fantasy team this week as well

Re: 2011 Tour Blog

4 days is a long time on the road. Do the whole team travel in the bus?

Re: 2011 Tour Blog

Sicily, was a tournament too far for the truck. It's close to 5 days travel time from the UK and further back to Andalucia. So by the time we'd have have arrived we would have spent about a day there before having to leave. Shame really as its a beautiful place.
Trucker goes it alone and the rest of the team fly in and out.

Re: 2011 Tour Blog

Does the Mizuno truck get 1st pick at a parking spot at all the venues as the Official Tour Fitter?
