    It is Came Down GC in Dorset. Samuel Ryder was a member there … he of Ryder Cup fame. The then club pro was in the first UK Ryder Cup team.

    Who is this and what happened?

    Another change of tack. This is the first tee at which golf course and who, while a member there, was responsible for introducing something big in golf.

    Would you use a caddy in your weekend medal?

    No … the odds are that they would be a far better player than me.

    PCC to be reviewed

    I wasn’t comparing it to any rating methodology in the past … I was merely pointing out that it is inherently spurious. This is because it cannot be accurately measured. Distance, time, speed etc. are factors can be be accurately measured, whereas the difficulty of a golf course is not. One...

    Two sided putter

    Does a double sided putter count as two clubs out of the 14 permissible?
