Alex Horne – Lies

alex-horne-lies_32645_thumbI was delighted to see a talking golf head cover playing a pivotal role in the show right from the start, and I wasn’t to be disappointed as (without giving anything away) the whole show proved to be a brilliant allegory for links golf – what you see isn’t always what you get.

Horne battled admirably in the face of a persistently odd heckler in the front row, in a manner which brought to mind Colin Montgomerie reacting stoically to the ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ jibes of American golf fans.  Stirring stuff.

The only mild criticism I have of the show is that at one point a sporting autobiography features, and it frankly beggars belief that Horne didn’t opt for John Daly’s ‘My Life In and Out of the Rough’.  Never-the-less, Horne certainly scores a birdie with this well below par offering – four golf balls.
