    Is this the end of WFH?

    Gave them the chance, still blew it. With skivers we would have morning teams calls to ensure they’re up and working. End the teams call and if you called them via teams within 5-10mins it would go unanswered then some generic excuse. To make them efficient I would become inefficient managing...

    Is this the end of WFH?

    Ultimately some people can’t be trusted to work from home. Gave all of my team the opportunity a good majority were more efficient saving on commute time etc. Others absolutely taking the mick, productivity down, not responding to Client E-Mails/Calls in an efficient manor and workflow down in...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    Yes must admit I’m all for the £10 hike per 15mins, people should be penalised when taking the mick. There seems to be some actual momentum now in Tesla superchargers being opened to all EV’s in the UK as other countries are trialling, if it happens that will ease the move for a lot of people...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    Totally agree and this is what’s wrong with public charging currently. People are greedy, supermarket chargers aren’t there for you to fully charge they’re there to keep you on your journey. There’s a level of etiquette needed. It’s a complete non story in my opinion. A lot of chargers put a...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    Not sure where on earth you get that impression. Couldn’t be any further from the truth. If it’s regarding the last sentence upon re-reading my post that sounds like I was blaming her, I wasn’t. I was speaking from an EV capability perspective that the range would not have been an issue if we...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    Only one thing I don’t think I’ll ever ever get used to is lack of engine sound. Being able to buy something for £60k that can keep up with a lot of super cars costing multiple times that is a feat in itself and is amazing but my god I miss the tone of a nice engine. Especially when your doing...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    May sound harsh but I don’t insure my wife to drive my cars, she has hers I have mine. She refused to drive my cars after curbing 2 of my wheels 😬. Anyway. I’d dropped my car into Land Rover for a warranty repair (I know). Only about 10-15 min drive to the office so a colleague picked me up...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    I know Tesla are trialling opening their super chargers to all EV’s in some countries. This would improve access immensely as that’s the main reason I go Tesla as the infrastructure is there. There is some push back from Tesla owners as it will reduce access to the provisions they have. I say go...

    Would you buy an electric car?

    I’ve just let my model x go which was on salary sacrifice, did 80k in it over 2-3 years and genuinely it convinced me I’d always have an EV on my drive. Range loss was fairly insignificant along with service costs. New car time I was looking at going for the Taycan on salary sacrifice however...

    Any accountants / Tax Savvy Folk?

    Sorry trying not to make it longwinded but at the same time give background and fully understand my situation. I’ve previously utilised salary sacrifice to purchase an EV, the lease is about to come to an end which co-incides with my annual review. I work for a limited company, nobody else on...

    Home Sim-Set-Ups

    I understand a few members of this forum have them, where is yours? Are you happy with it? Whats the Set-Up? Moving in the coming months, have the space for an indoor home sim with suitable height and length for use with a radar unit. Looking at the options but always good to see others...

    Do you remember your first club comp and if so how did it go?

    Yes it was called the Joe Shardlow Cup. I was 13 (18 years ago) Fortunately they had a junior division as they usually let juniors play in adult comps, only however if approved by the committee due to potential for destroying the field due to advancing quickly with high handicaps. It was a...

    Joining fees creeping back ?

    Our club introduced a joining fee during the covid rise of players. I think as some normality is coming back, some of the newer golfers have stopped playing as quickly as they started, some may have to re-prioritise their outgoings etc. A friend of mine has just joined and now no mention of a...

    Bryson Lofts and Yardages

    Crazy lofts when compared against a traditional set-up. I know there is some difference to offset his single length shafts and to try and counter his spin but it had me surprised. 2.5 to 3 degree stronger than radspeed GI one length irons.

    Gamers

    Golf drops to the bottom of my list of hobbies over winter. I hate playing off mats on fairways and temp greens as well as being cold and wet etc. Gaming goes up my list, barely play in summer and when it’s miserable outside I turn on the PC. I’ve built a racing sim rig and currently playing a...

    I bought today.....

    If they last a while as I’m giving these to a mate he won’t miss say 10-15 of them as there’s 40 now I’ve had the whites, happy to send you some FOC if you pm me your address as I need to nip to the post office Monday anyway.

    (Stealth Driver) Carbonwood Tech - Gimmick or Replacement for Titanium?

    Yes. I’ve bought an 8 degree and that looks slightly closed of square at address, knocked it down to 6.5 degree and it sits what appears to be slightly open at address. I think that’s why it worked for me. I could set the loft nice and low and my spin numbers were consistent and lower, have...
