    One of the worst shots I've ever seen a pro hit :-/

    It's not often you see a pro hit a shot like a 24 handicapper. In fact even a 24 handicapper would be embarrassed by this one. :ooo:

    How to stop slow play

    The R&A have come up with their recommendations for reducing the time taken to play a round. Mostly common sense, of course but the biggie for me is encouraging 'ready golf'.

    Several witnesses have come forward to dispute Allenby's claims that he was drugged and kidnapped, and the Honolulu police say they're not pursuing any investigations into the alleged kidnapping or assault.

    Interesting article on the BBC site today about why cycling is booming as the number of golfers continues to decline. The reasons given are fairly obvious - golf is hard, takes a long time and is perceived as unwelcoming to many. The $64,000 question...
