Set mainly in Sydney during the 1920s and 1930s, including the Great Depression, it portrays the life of a young middle class woman struggling to raise two children after her marriage breaks up.

  3. Martin Slumbers:

    There has been some misunderstanding of the new rule and I would point out that it is designed to prevent any opportunity for the caddie to stand behind the player as he begins to take his stance, we appreciate it was a very unfortunate situation yesterday and I completely understand Keith Pelley's concerns... but there is no discretionary element to the rule precisely so that it is easier to understand and can be applied consistently.

  4. Greg Carlson:

    The fact he would caddie for his friend like he did in Zhuhai typifies the kind of guy Arie was, his smile brightened whatever room he was in, and everybody liked being around him. This is a significant loss for so many of us and for our tour.

  5. Gary Woodland:

    I told my caddie early on, I didn't feel like I was hitting it as far because my adrenaline wasn't up, it's a big deal. Especially when you play with Phil and you get some of those big groups, you get so much adrenaline, the golf ball seems like it goes miles.
