Keith McIntosh, who invited Howard to the event in 2010, said: “Howard first published hisbook in 2008. With each re-print, he has updated it so it has never been other than current and remains just as popular.
“It is no surprise given his coaching credentials in producing world famous players such as Lora, Padraig Harrington and Darren Clarke.”
Over the years, sales of the book have earned Rosemere Cancer Foundation
more than £1,500.
