    Waterproof socks

    Having suffered with this for a while I bit the bullet and bought some Sealskinz socks and they are excellent. For the first time in god knows how long, my feet were bone dry after a round. As someone mentioned, they felr a bit weird when I put them on (hard to describe, but almost like your...

    Does pace of play effect how you play

    Yes definitely. Just last night was playing in the weekly stableford roll up and was flying on the front 9 playing to handicap for 18 points. Suddenly we were getting held up and waiting on every tee and my game went to pot. This isn't a coincidence as it happens every time I'm hung around...

    Why do you rarely get golf waterproofs with a hood?

    Not sure how that helps avoid rain down the back of the neck?

    Hole in one - who pays?

    Not sure Insurance would cover Society days? At least mine doesn't. Has to be a verified comp I think.

    Another record broke today

    I'll never forget the first time I played a new course up here - Longhirst Lakes if anyone knows it - and my pal lost 27 balls on the round! The worst thing was that 3 of them were mine as he'd only brought 24! :LOL:

    Playing Multiple Courses

    100% this. I play better elsewhere and I think it's because I think about things a lot more, and have to visualise where I want to put my shots etc. I need to start doing this at my home course.

    Golf clubs low on membership

    Totally agree with this. I also think clubs need to be fairer about their pricing of 9 holes - a lot of the places I've asked have been full 18 holes price / 2 + a random amount! I'd love to take my son for 9 most nights, and if it was about £10 I would, but it's usually more than that.

    Golf watches

    The only thing with 2nd hand is the battery life will be poorer than a new one, so this needs to be considered as you want to be able to get a full 18 out of one at least. I'd definitely recommend one to anyone, regardless of handicap.

    TaylorMade day at Woburn

    That sounds great. It's really got me thinking about going to get fitted for clubs at a place like this. The fact he was honest enough to tell you to stick with the putter is another bonus, as there are a lot of shysters out there.

    Walking is an integral part of the (pro) game

    Yep - I agree with this.

    2019 US PGA

    Also true, but I guess as already mentioned that is overlooked due to the tradition, history and heritage of The Open.

    2019 US PGA

    I think the PGA suffered a bit in the 2000s too when you had one time major winners come out of nowhere like Rich Beem (Who I love on Sky, but he wasn't exactly a 'force' when he won) and Shaun Micheel, YE Yang etc.

    As good as this would be, for the reasons mentioned it just woldn't happen in my opinion.

    How far do you live from your home course

    Just under 3 miles, and there are actually 3 courses closer (or just about) than that so I'm lucky in that regard.
