Whenever you meet someone who has spent a large amount of time with their achievements displayed across the front pages of the newspapers, it’s a bit difficult to know what to expect.
Email conversations rarely give much of an insight, particularly with men (to stereotype a little), who invariably favour succinct and perfunctory correspondence over vast swathes of conversation.
Such was the case when meeting former England rugby player, Austin Healey. Before heading away to the Algarve with his dad, with Spabreaks.com’s sister company, Your Golf Travel , we had the chance to chat to the sportsman about his love of golf and ask what he does to relax, while he took a few practice shots on the virtual course at Urban Golf in High Street Kensington.
I needn’t have been concerned. Arriving with a broad grin and instantly heading for the golf clubs, an afternoon with the ever charming and effervescent Healey proved entertaining and revealing, sharing his ideal celebrity fourball, how to holiday with a young family, and of course, revealing his favourite spa treatment as well.
One can only hope he had a wonderful time, and a bit of a rest in the sunshine!
