Just call me Jess

Henry Alliss' father, Peter, played Ryder Cup golf. So did Henry's grandfather, Percy.

Therefore it must come as a shock - and no little disappointment - to learn of young Henry's lack of ambition.

Despite having risen to the giddy heights of account manager at Azalea, Henry stated this lunchtime that he had 'a song for every occasion' and wished to be a 'Jess Conrad for the 21st century'.

It's a refreshing admission, given that most youngsters these days want to be Dizzy Ratbag or whatever his name is. But what shocked me most was that a 26-year-old had ever heard of Jess Conrad.

I suppose he must have made up a fourball at some stage...
