    25 degree hybrid

    I have a 30 degree hybrid, a very useful club, not tried it out of fairway bunkers, maybe I should give it a go

    Lift, Clean And Place

    We have gone onto mats at my place and I feel it makes the game a lot easier, especially when coupled with soft greens so that the ball tends not to bounce much, I scored 27 points in our 12 hole comp today. That said I am more than happy to play the ball as it lies during the summer and don't...

    Are You A Potential Bandit?

    PBR 9.0 - 6.0 =3.0 IR 10.4 - 6.0 = 4.4 not sure what that means but when that 6.0 comes off in a couple of rounds those figures will look very different

    Stones in the Bunker

    we have a large rock on our 9th hole, the hole is named after it...Giant Stone. It is even mentioned on old OS maps from before the course was built. Our bunkers thankfully are pretty stone free.

    We had our 12 hole closing competition, I didnt play as well as I have been doing recently but unusually for me I holes 5 or 6 decent putts so my score looked a lot better than played. One day i will putt like that while playing well too (hopefully)

    Played in an Open today, parred 7 of the first 8 holes but then annoyingly messed up 3 par 5s after being in good position after 2 shots on each of them. Very simlar to Monday when I parred 6 on the front nine then messed up 3 par 5s on the back.

    Whs exceptional score

    The handicap committee should not be changing peoples handicaps on the fly, meetings every 6 or 12 months are sufficient. The new system is an average based one, let it do its work.

    played in a couple of end of season team opens this week, yesterday at my own course, I played really well apart from one hole and had 26 points after the 12 holes we played. Started in a similar vein today at Haydock Park with a couple of pars and a birdie in the first 5 holes but then was far...

    Elevated tees

    I was thinking back on yesterdays round where I started pulling my usual straight drives and I realised that it particularly happened on holes with elevated tees. Is there any reason that that could be the cause? or is it just that being high up exaggerates the poor shot?

    Could be, but normally a players handicap just shows as pending until they have 3 cards in

    Lancs senior ladies championship at Formby Ladies today, postponed from May. I have been in good form so was optimistic on the first tee and it was well founded as I parred the first four holes, followed by a bogey on a nasty little par 3, and then on the 6th tee I badly pulled my drive into...

    I played today and..(Rolling) -originally created by JohnnyDee

    I should have had my best score ever today, I certainly played well enough sadly once again my putting let me down, 4 three putts and another couple of putting misses after chipping close, I did finish 10 over which is bang on handicap but it really should have been several shots less. I just...
