|The Ham and Egger Files meets The Putting Penguin in Putney. A perfect minigolfing mix|
On Monday 2 March 2015 Emily and I met up with one half of the Putting Penguin team - Pat Sheridan.

Pat was in the UK on business and with a little free time upon arrival we headed to one of London's minigolf courses for a round.

It was great to meet up with a friend, fellow minigolf enthusiast and multiple time minigolf champion in the USA, and we had a fun round on the 12-hole Putt in the Park miniature golf course at Wandsworth Park in (aptly named) Putney.
For the record, the results of the international encounter were:
1st - Richard Gottfried 32
2nd - Pat Sheridan (USA) 34
3rd - Emily Gottfried 35

We're already looking forward to the return contest in the USA!
