    Driving around the M25 this week, I saw a traffic sign which said 'Sign not in use'. Well that's nice to know, I thought. Anyone else seen any signs that seem pointless?

    59s at the Shriners?

    Seems to be happening more often than not these days but both Byrd and Tringale are -7 thru 11. 4 more required in the last 7. As they started on different halves, their better ball stands at 58 and can only go down. Not bad.......... :whistle:

    Liverpool V Palace - Not sure I can watch!

    I was intending to watch the game this afternoon (don't ask me how!) but now I am thinking it will turn into a bad experience. And my boy (who's 10) will want to watch too. Am I risking shattering a young boys dreams?:confused: Thoughts?

    Rory on 18

    Just watching a re run of the golf on Sky and Rory dumped his tee shot on 18 into the water. Tim Barter said 'thinking of other things may be'. So my brothers and sisters, exactly what do you think Rory was thinking of? I reckon 'all I need here is a par for a net 70 and another 0.1...

    Long Putters

    OK - the subject has been done to death on here. Robert Lee (on Sky tonight) said that he believes that the R&A will make an announcement regards long putters soon. He said that there would be a period where players affected can 'get used to' a shorter wand, so they wouldnt be banned with...
