    What Do You Expect From a ‘Royal’ Course

    A random comment on another thread got me wondering about opinions on the above Q I’ve never played a Royal course. I have googled it so if the internet is to be believed I know why a course might get the tag (& it seems to have little to do with design or quality) So as a visiting punter do...

    Irons Only

    Had the chance for an unplanned round at the weekend so decided to tee it forward one box from the comp tees and play ‘irons only’ (it drops the course length by 400y to about 6000y) and while I took FW & Hybrid I wanted to hit 5 Iron (or less) off as many tees/2nd shots as I felt like (ended up...

    What Are You Wearing?

    What items of PPE are you typically wearing/using when you go outside? I believe that as the numbers go down in many countries one of the primary things we all need to learn as lockdowns are lifted is that when it comes back (& it will) have you learned to consistently protect yourself more than...

    Golfer or Street Artist

    Saw Justin Thomas wearing a hoodie for a couple of days play at the weekend, comp still seemed to run ok (and obviously didn’t do his standard of play any harm) If we take an individual & give him that hoodie, Van Rooyen’s elasticated joggers, Tigers ‘T’ shirts, Coetzee's neck/face mask...

    Drawn Comps

    On Tour we know that it isn’t a draw for rounds 1 & 2 in the real sense of the word Players are grouped together as marque groups Marque groups are given selected (not drawn) tee times for TV I also imagine players who actively dislike each other will be kept apart and a few other...

    The MOT

    Car just had its first ‘MOT’, I think there's three primary differences to getting one in the UK Cars only require a test when it reaches 7 years old (is the UK still 3?) First MOT lasts 2 years not 1 All cars go to dedicated government test centres round the country, no garages do these...

    Golf Random Irritations

    Can't find one of these (if we've even had one before) and I think it might be useful since golf irritations might get overlooked in the general OOB thread I'll start with mine from the weekend...
