Those golf-mad dudes at Bryan Cave recently headed west for the firm's annual partners' retreat in the US. Well, at least four of the London office's five UK- qualified partners did. Tulkinghorn hears that, as a relationship-building exercise, it fell some way short, at least for employment partner Sarah Linton, who would probably rather chew off her arm than try to sink a hole in one.
Linton's refusal to play ball, however, pales in comparison with one particular partner, a minor golfing celebrity at Bryan Cave who used to play off one (Tulkinghorn is exclusively a cricket fan and so has no idea what that means, but is reliably informed it means the chap is pretty tasty).
Now it transpires his form has dipped and he only plays off three. And consequently refuses to play. Come on sir, surely that's not in the spirit of the game?
