Urgent! - Powakaddy lithium battery recall
PowaKaddy International Ltd. is voluntarily recalling a batch of lithium batteries manufactured in the middle of 2012 which were fitted to their discontinued 2012 Sports and Digital models. Only some of these batteries with a serial number starting with "BKD", "BKE" and "BKS" are affected and Powakaddy has set up a website www.pkrecall.com on which customers can check whether they have a battery that they wish to recall. If it is one sold by Powakaddy through me, they will replace it free of charge and will make arrangements through that website to do so promptly. Therefore, if you have bought a lithium battery with the markings beginning BKD, BKE or BKS after May 2012, please go to www.pkrecall.com or Freephone 0800 088 7981 to check.

I have recently taken delivery of two beautiful, limited edition Callaway Golf Open Championship tour bags.

Currently, these bags are retailing at £319.99 but are bound to be selling for much higher on eBay in the next few weeks so now may be an ideal opportunity to purchase one.

Clicgear push trolleys
I recently ordered some Clicgear push trolleys with the hope of selling a few, but such has been the sell-through that the few I ordered have now been sold but have now subsequently been replaced with two new trolleys, one in black with orange wheels and the other black with lime wheels. As many of you will know, these trolleys are first-class in quality and fold down really small too. So if you're in the market for a terrific push trolley, please let me know or come and take a look ASAP.

With this year's Open Championship not too far away, I'd like to give you a couple of tips that might be worth a flutter. Obviously, you need look no further than Rory McIlroy or Jordan Spieth but I think three in a row for Jordan might be a little too much to ask. However, for a couple of good options (in my opinion anyway), Luke Donald might be worth an each way punt but Paul Casey and J.B. Holmes would definitely be on the radar as a good outside bet. Good luck!
