    European Super League

    I will say, right from the start that I know very little about this and I would be genuinely grateful if someone would explain to me why everyone is so vehemently opposed to the formation of the European Super League. As I understand it and according to the papers the “big 6” joining will still...

    Driver Yips

    It seems I have a case of the driver yips (is that even a thing?). Since about 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with a very strong grip and was advised to bring it back to neutral, I have periodically suffered from re-gripping the club at the top of the swing. I guess this is because the...

    New handicap system. An American view

    An interesting article just popped up in my inbox this morning, highlighting how Americans may see the changes in the new World handicap System (WHS) as opposed to the system they have used to date. It also illustrates how Americans believe we Brits play golf and how we may adjust to the new...

    Feet Together Drill

    I am sure some of the experts and pro’s on here will be familiar with the feet together drill. Often hailed as the best golf drill ever. It’s worth a google. Having had lessons last season the pro had me hitting halfway back, halfway through shots with a 7 iron which was OK but TBH I...

    Woolly Hats

    Would it be a serious breach of etiquette to refuse to play with someone wearing a woolly hat? With global warming I just don’t see why someone would want to wear one anymore. 😀

    What?

    So there you are playing the 553 yd Par 5 9th at TPC Summerlin and you smoke your drive 340yds. You would be pretty pleased with yourself, right? Well, until your PP knocks it 42 yds past you... and puts it right in the middle of the fairway. He then takes a Wedge for his second shot into this...

    Is it any wonder?

    As mentioned before, for pretty much my entire golfing life to date I have held a handicap of between 16 and 18. Even with all the golf nuts on here I think I am up there with the best of them in trying desperately to get my handicap down and play to what I believe is my potential. With my...

    Handicap reduction on a no return?

    Question: Can you receive a handicap cut for a no return in a competition? I had a good card going today, but had a mare on one hole late in the back nine resulting in a no return and then proceeded to finish well. Absolutely gutted. The only saving grace would be if stableford adjustment counts...

    Electrical Advice Needed

    I am changing all my downlighters (10 in one room) from low voltage (mains) to LED RGB. In taking out the old units there are 2 x live, 2 x neutral and 1 x earth wires. The new fittings have two connectors for live wires and 2 x connectors for neutral but nowhere to connect the earth wire. Are...

    Staying Connected

    In preparation for next season I have decided to work on consistency. Even though in most rounds I am capable of a good number of pars and the odd birdie, what seems to be holding me back is a lack of consistency. The main difference between me and guys off say 4 or 6 shots lower is consistency...

    Attack or defend?

    I have been playing this great game for 25+ years and throughout most of my golfing "career" I have been stuck between 16 and 18 handicap. I play on a tough golf course but I still believe I have the game to get to say 14. I have a decent swing that in reality should get me to a lower handicap...

    Mark Sampson

    Mark Sampson has been sacked as England Women football head coach by the FA after nearly 4 years in the job. Apparently he was dismissed after the FA was made aware of his conduct when he was manager at Bristol Academy. The FA say a report "revealed clear evidence of inappropriate and...

    Colour of ball

    During Sky's Open coverage on Friday, Butch Harmon was talking about Bubba Watson using different coloured balls and Harmon said that Watson had told him that you must use the same colour ball throughout the round. In other words, if you tee off with a green ball, you can only use a green ball...

    Vintage distances

    I enjoyed a re-run of the 1985 Open at Royal St George's on Sky this morning. One thing did stand out though. The par 5 14th was playing 503 yards. Often forgotten two time major champion David Graham was in contention and played the 14th (admittedly into the wind) with driver and 3 iron to 140...

    Rules for immigrants

    Following on from the thread on the Berlin attack where I suggested that an immigrant who committed a crime should expect to be deported back to their home country. Whilst I still maintain this view, it did set me thinking, am I being "anti immigrant"? For example, as I cannot be deported from...

    Double bogies

    A couple of years ago - it may have more, someone on the forum raised a point about double bogies. They said that if you played above a handicap of around 12 or 13 it was very likely you had never had a round of golf without a double or worse on your card. If I remember correctly they made the...

    Loose impediment on the fringe

    One of my PPs had a putt from the fringe at the weekend and just after he struck the putt his ball hit a small stone from the bunker which deflected his ball off target. When asked why he hadn't moved it before he putted the ball. The player replied he wasn't allowed to as the stone was off the...

    Bad service from SkyCaddie and Linx GT

    I am really disappointed in SkyCaddie. I ordered their new Linx GT on April 13 after seeing an advert in GM. A GPS that operates as a watch and also on your smartphone with the added benefit of game tracking similar to Game Golf, I thought it was ideal. On visiting their website to order they...

    Post impact extension

    I am not sure extension is the correct term here. I am seeking advice on how to get straight arms after impact. My driving has been suffering just recently, swing speed down and the shot going left. After a lot of practice I noticed that my through swing seemed to be a lot steeper than my...
