I’m watching the British Masters on recording when the commentators mentioned this anecdote, so it is a few hours old.

When Fanny was caddying for Sir Nick, she would carry a divot so that when he played a fairway iron, she would have a divot ready for that shot, walk forward pick up that divot and take to the next fairway. The consistency of his irons meant his divots were interchangeable.

The elegant efficiency just satisfies my engineering mind.

Of the caddie or the divot-taker; or both?

"Abide With Me" on cup final day. Gets me every time.
Pains me to say it, as a Nottinghamian, but, come on you dirty foxes.
I used to get a tingle hearing it on cup final day until I heard it at a key funeral I was at, it's actually a funeral hymn. It's ruined it for me now which is a shame. Very powerful when the whole crowd sings though 👍

Being fully prepped the night before for a long wet round, waking up to a changed forecast - end up being sun burnt, and the best bit.... the heavens opening during the drive home 🌧😁

Love when a project comes together and when it finishes

Few issues on way.. complete rewire of garage due to unsafe wiring installed in the 70s probs when it was just for lighting but someone decided to run sockets off it .. for crying out load

Anyways all done now

Looks good .. gone from 2 double sockets to 6 and outside socket

Gone from 2 working lights to 4 working much brighter lights

Gone from old bedroom furniture to store stuff to metal cabinets (including a new golf one to replace locker and wardobe job)

And ofc. Asbestos roof gone
