Requested by the Tampa Bay Occasions what the itch is that BRITISH LION scratches that he would not get in his job with MAIDEN, Harris mentioned: “I suppose enjoying small golf equipment and being shut and private with the viewers. I like enjoying huge locations as properly. I take pleasure in all of them, and I am very fortunate that I can do all of them. But in addition, it is golf equipment that I by no means performed with MAIDEN, even in Europe. There is a well-known membership referred to as the Milky Method in Amsterdam, which I managed to play with BRITISH LION, however I by no means did that with MAIDEN. There’s locations now that I will be enjoying on this [U.S.] tour that I’ve by no means performed earlier than. So it is all new floor. It is a problem. It is good. I like a problem.”
