A quick update on my previous blog, I just got off the phone with that cantankerous soul Dave Perkins, the renowned golf writer formerly of the Toronto Star, who suffered a heart attack last Tuesday.
I’m happy to report that Perkins is in good spirits after having some stents put in and he’s looking forward to being sprung from hospital soon.
He asked to pass along that he appreciates all the kind thoughts sent his way. Tests are ongoing and he says hospital staff are still poking and prodding him before coming up with a classic line.
“All that means is everyone will have give me a few more strokes next year,” he said.
You can’t keep a good man down for very long.
