    Kids TV Shows

    Read a really good article on the BBC website earlier about CBeebies and their 'Stories at Bedtime' show that has celebrities reading stories, but is appealing more to parents than kids (it particularly highlighted the Tom Hardy episodes and how popular he is with mums!!!) It got me thinking...

    Top Links Courses

    So in keeping with the recent threads on Parkland, Heathland, seems only right to start one about Links courses too! If you look at the GM Top 100, links courses dominate the top 50. I've only played a handful but have to say that my top 5 links are: Old Course Royal St Georges Saunton East...

    Adams Golf - Fairways and Hybrids

    Am thinking of buying a new 3-wood and 2-hybrid and like the look of the new Adams XTD range (albeit a little bit costly!) Never used Adams products before but have heard they are very good - anyone on here use them and can recommend them? Going to the range over the weekend to have a hit with...

    Looks like myself, Kellfire and Warbie76 did inspire him at the PING Pro-am the other week! He's opened up with 67 and 66 at the Portugal Masters to currently lie -9 and joint 7th. Well done Matt - keep up the good work :thup: :one:

    Wrag Barn GC

    Anyone played (or is a member at) Wrag Barn? Playing it next Tuesday on a society day and wondered if anyone has any information on it. Looked on the website and there is nothing about the course on there apart from the following: "The Simon Gidman designed Golf Course - a challenging par 72...

    BMW PGA Championship Pro Am

    Anyone else going to this next week? My brother has somehow wrangled himself a spot in the same four-ball as David Howell and Ian Wright (unfortunately he couldn't get me in :angry:!) but by way of consolation has got me a VIP pass that apparently allows me inside the ropes and 'access all...

    Champions Dinner

    Just been reading about the Champions Dinner on The Masters website and some of the food by the reigning Masters champions over the years. So you have done the unthinkable and shot a back 9 of 30 on Masters Sunday to pip Tiger and Rory by a shot to claim the Green Jacket. A year has gone by...

    And you thought the golf world rankings were crazy!

    Not when you compare them to FIFA's football world rankings!! So based on our performance at Euro 2012 where we were (at best) the 5th best team in Europe, England have risen two places to be the 4th best team in the world!! :mad: Makes them even...

    King Kenny - gone!

    BBC Sport confirms that Kenny Dalglish has left Liverpool. Positive step by Liverpool IMO - going nowhere under Dalglish. I suppose it's back to the less stressful job of promoting the Slazenger K1 Speed driver and irons! :whistle:

    'The Shire Series for Seve'

    Anyone else seen / heard of this; or was thinking of entering? Shire London is Seve's only UK course design and IMO is a good course with an interesting mix of holes, some of which are really good. Have played the course a few times and always had an enjoyable day...

    What's the quickest you've played 9 holes?

    Met a mate after work yesterday evening for 9 holes round my track and we tee'd off right on the stroke of 6. Started at the 10th which is a par 3, and there was a two-ball in front of us who were putting out as we were walking onto the tee. Therefore thought we'd be finishing just before 8, so...
