    Can you be too keen on the rules ?

    Tash, what goes into your WHS record is 100% of your gross scores - with any necessary adjustments down to nett double bogey - whether it's a singles comp or a General Play card.

    Can you be too keen on the rules ?

    Why would 95% be calculated for a General Play card - it's not a comp? The adjusted gross score just goes straight on to your handicap record at 100%

    Best wet/cold weather gloves

    Macwets have 2 options - the climatec ones are meant to be a bit better in the cold. If it's cold and wet, I wear the climatec Macwets but, between shots, I wear a pair of mittens with a disposable hand warmer (Little Hotties etc) in each. For me, that does the job - good grip for the shots and...

    Kyle Rittenhouse

    Absolutely no surprise - as soon as the judge, early in the trial, decreed that the deceased could not be referred to as "victims", the outcome was inevitable.

    Lift, Clean And Place

    I do know about Preferred Lies and, at our place, that is what it is called - sometimes Winter Rules but no-one calls it LCP (being sand-based we do not use E-2). To me, LCP is too close to LCR with a likelihood of players "mixing up" the two rules.

    Lift, Clean And Place

    Questions about WHS regarding 9 hole rounds

    A 9-hole score is scaled up to an equivalent 18-hole Score Differential as follows and rounded to the nearest tenth, with .5 rounded upwards: Score Differential = (113 ÷ Slope Rating) x (adjusted gross score – Course Rating – (0.5 x PCC adjustment)) Where: Slope Rating equals the 9-hole Slope...
