    Bernard Cribbins R.I.P.

    I read his biography, a great read and eye opening. Apart from his varied entertainment history he also had good stories of his service in the Paras.

    Recommend me a golf ball retriever

    I have the winning retriever from the review in my bag. I use it more for retrieving fellow player’s balls than my own. When my ball goes in the pond the 14ft reach is way too short 😂 It’s great for reaching your ball in the gorse. Be aware that the advertised 14ft “reach” includes your arm!

    Course/Club Recommendations Near Ampthill (Bedfordshire)

    The original 1st tee was down the path so it was in direct line down the fairway to the green. When I played it last year it was a really rough tee in amongst some trees behind the ninth green, I thought it was only temporary. From the old tee the green was reachable for a rubbish player like...

    Would you wear a pair of 'joggers' to play golf in?

    The notes on page say the model is 6‘ 1” . I suspect these would fit just above the knee for someone like me with a 28” inside leg measurement.

    Resolving stroke play ties

    I agree with you , but I always wonder if you can really apply that to a Shotgun start. Although I’m a high handicapper I believe, in the case of a tie in strokeplay, the win should go to the lower gross score.

    I had a junior putter in the 70’s which I used and kept for many years. had another forgettable one then when I restarted playing in 2013 I bought an odyssey white hot 2-ball which was a magic wand especially after fitting an oversize grip. I did have to swap the optional weight after putting on...

    What length is your driver? Have you changed it from the standard club length?

    I had a G30 with 0.5” taken off. I recently bought a G425 and again with 0.5” taken off. The G425 goes further than my Old G30, but what made the biggest difference was the G425 had a flatter lie settings. I am much more consistent both in dispersion and distance. I have always thought the toe...
