    Changing National Association

    I have a friend who moved from England to Scotland. The club that he joined would not accept his England Golf handicap record and he has to start from scratch has gone from 7 handicap here to a 1 handicap there (no way is he 1 handicap player). Anybody know of anything similar.

    Frustrating. We are squeezed in between the SE and NE winds and there is a band of rain running across our region. However the most annoying part of it is that it stops raining about 7pm stays dry until about 10-11 am and the sequence continues for the next couple of days. Looks no golf until...

    Wimbledon GC

    Any body else see the article about Wimbledon Common on country file. There is a bye law that all golfers have to wear red tops. Looks like Tiger could go there incognito.

    Soft Cap

    After yesterday's round I expected my H.I. to go to 11.2 from 10.7 (9 replaced with 13.3, rounded 0.5) The best of 8 calculations show the maths as 11.25 I only went up to 11.1. I presume the soft cap has come in to play (low of 8) but cannot find anywhere in the manual that says how the soft...
