    Ads on YouTube

    I watch a lot of golf, reviews, news etc on Sky's YouTube. Last week it wouldn't come up until I jumped through a load of hoops trying to log in etc. When I finally got it active again everything I view has suddenly got loads of ads. Every 60 seconds on some stuff, making it more or less...

    Plugged balls

    Watching the Memorial this weekend, there were several instances of players etc. looking for balls in the rough. It made me wonder what the ruling would be if a ball became plugged because the player trod on it. Would he still be able to re-place the ball?

    Maintenance of golf courses

    Just curious about what levels of maintenance are required when courses are closed, possibly for a long period. For example; would greens need to be mown every day to keep grass in good condition and weeds at bay, could bunkers be ignored for periods etc Hopefully a hypothetical question, but on...

    Driving range question

    Went on the driving range yesterday for the first time in ages. It was very busy and all the ground floor bays were full. There are bays on the next floor and these are only open when all downstairs ones are full so never used these before. My shots were going a lot shorter than usual even...

    Previous holes in the way on Putting Green

    On my course the GK's always leave one hole open (uncapped) in addition to the flagged hole. I had three examples last week when these were on the line of my putt or chip and run shots. We only play for fun so have a mates agreement to move the ball when this happens and was asking one of the...

    Low blinding sun

    I play early mornings and on some holes it's just impossible to see where your ball has gone due to the low sun. I've tried my standard polarised sunglasses but they just don't cut it. Is there anything more specialised worth trying?

    Clarification re Bunker penalties Please

    I saw this guide (See below) to the new rules and option 4 has been discussed but seems to contradict option 1 in some circumstances. Option 1 seems to suggest I could replay the ball from its original position and only drop 1 shot. This would be a great help to me (if true) as delicate shots...

    Recommend a Large Trolley Golf Bag

    I've currently got a Ping Pioneer which has seperate dividers for each club. However, I've got large grips on all my clubs and find clubs sticking when trying to pull them out or I have to jiggle clubs up and down a bit to get a club to slide fully back in. I just need a tiny bit more room in...

    Adjusting foliage

    When playing a friendly the other day my I found my ball under a long individual strand of bramble. The bramble wasn't touching the ball but was arced over it. (It was about 6 foot long) I gently raised the trailing end with my club and moved it sideways so it was draped over another...

    Ball hitting another ball on green

    My partner chipped onto the green and hit my ball, which I'd already chipped on, promoting it nearer the hole by a few inches. Question is; Does my ball have to be moved to its original postion or can you choose to leave it where it is. I ask the question because, although we saw the contact, we...

    Pin position on Fairway

    Interesting first for me today. I played at Nene Valley (Thorpe Wood) this morning and was surprised to find that they'd resited the pin position on to the fairway in front of the green. :eek: I've never seen this before. The green itself was partially covered in ice and they'd put the...

    Hitting straight left

    I can't work out why I'm tending to hit straight left lately. Not hook or draw. It's just my irons as fairway woods and driver are ok most of the time. I've checked the usual errors such as swinging outside in, club face not square and grip but can't seem to find out what the hell is going on...
