Harrison nearly forced to cancel dream Vegas trip
MARK Harrison feared his dream of partnering Evesham Golf Club’s head pro Daniel Clee in the grand final of the Virgin Atlantic PGA National Pro-Am Championship in Las Vegas had been sunk before it even began.
Having qualified for the prestigious event, Harrison’s joy was short-lived when he realised it clashed with a cruise to the USA and Canada he’d booked.
He explained: “I tried to get the date of the cruise changed. At first, they said that if I did that then I would lose all the money I’d spent on it.
“I tried to tell them that this was a prestigious final of a national golf competition and sent them a link to the PGA website.
“I was just about to write to Richard Branson to ask him to intervene when the company finally allowed me to bring my holiday forward.”
