  2. It's fair to say that Phil Mickelson lost a few supporters on Saturday at the US Open, when he deliberately hit a moving ball on the green to stop it rolling off the surface, taking a two-shot penalty. It was a stunning moment, one that he afterwards doubled down on in quite astonishing comments. Many felt he should have been disqualified from the Championship, and it certainly breached the principles of the game and raises question for future competitions. But it got me thinking. What is the worst example of rule breaking that you have seen on the golf course, perhaps in a competitive round? Maybe you've seen a moment like the stunt that Mickelson pulled at Shinnecock!

    Who Can Recommend a Hand Held GPS?

    Errrrrrrrrrrrrr this might not be the best place to look for what you need. Survey grade kit needs to be very accurate and sounds very expensive at the moment. Furthermore, unless you can get something that can use the USA military encryption channel you'll not get the accuracy I think you are looking for. My mobile can give elevation via many different App's, but just like location, it's often + - 10 to 30 feet. That's not good enough I suspect. See link for detail: https://www.quora.com/Is-there-any-difference-between-military-GPS-data-and-civilians-in-terms-of-accuracy You could try searching the internet; I made a quick search and found nothing with a greater accuracy than 0.5 m in any dimension. That's about 18 inches in old money. Search the internet.

    Who Can Recommend a Hand Held GPS?

    Update: since I changed to an Android Phone, the Freecaddie free basic now includes hazards and score entry. However..... I can't find a way to save this card, nor send it to my profile! Furthermore, I also cannot see a way to "reset" the scores before my next round.

    Stewart golf

    I have owned one 300 rounds with lots of issues, followmode - tires - weak material fattigue, many solved by excellent service from Stewart, until yesterday. When playing and on fairway in follow mode I Heard a crash - The handle crashed broke 4 cm from the connectioon where you fold the top. Stewart refused to accept claim, so had to buy a new one, while stcuk with this 2.700€ marvelouse trolley, when it works…

    Stewart X9 Follow

    I have had simular problems with follow function among other issues, and almost all have been delt with instantly. I had to buy one extra handunit to be able to use the trolley while sent in the onje not working well. Claimed my initial one today that stopped functioning again - got response buy a new one :-( I have use mine 300 rounds in Sweden and our conditions - yesterday when in follow mode I Heard a crash turned around and the upper part from the handle of trolley fell off ??? Claimed Stewart for material fatigue, 300 rounds no violent use and it broke down in follow mode running over a minor hole on fairway. The only weight oon handle top were towel and a isolated bottle holder with 50cl Cold water. Stewart refused to admit material fatigue on their 2.700€ Trolley, that they said ite strong material enough - NOT FOR ME, when it fell off after probably 300 bumpy runs on fairways in Sweden temp between 0 - +40C - must been worn out. Its workable without handle but risky passing open bridges and parking lots, so had to BUY A NEW HANDLE, that they have in stock? Why they keep them in stock if they so STRONG ENOUGH, I can only guess... But when you test one you feel thats it weak and shaky construction

    INCORRECT INFORMATION

    Hello, Could someone please advise on the following; A Mixed Competition was set up incorrectly in Club 2000(old version) A new date was given as a clash of club team matches prevented those members to play. This competition has been played for the last 5 years or so , and many members would / should know the format. There was confusion when the first members arrived to play at approx 0700,when the person in the shop was taking entry monies(no start sheet was used) Players asked what format the competition was, when it was discovered that the tees and neither the medal or stableford format had been displayed. The competition was a QUALFIER. They were told YELLOW TEES STABLEFORD when infact it was WHITE TEES MEDAL the early members played off YELLOWS STABLEFORD and later entrants played WHITES MEDAL The Ladies did not even bother to set up the competition on their own computer system.No Ladies entered the competition SHOULD THIS COMPETITION BE REPLAYED OR ABANDONED ? The competition has been closed on the computer and therefore HANDICAPS are affected, all scores were re-entered prior to closing to make sure that the software might perhaps re-align the results, and the results have been posted on How did I Do and handicaps altered to suit. Thank You

    Afraid not! We had to move our first work golf society day of the year at a Stoneham in April because of the bad weather, but something came up which meant I still had to use the day off! So I’ve got 1 less day of leave left than expected so will have to give it a miss this year.

    2019 Pro-Am Event

    In 2017 and 2018 we have held a small event in memory of my son at Hazel Grove Golf Club in Manchester. This is an exclusive event for friends of Adam - It is a good day, we raise money for charity. In 2019 I want to run a golf open, a team of 4 Pro-Am. This is my first enquiry to see if the Golfshake Community would be interested in what will be a great day. Please indicate your interest and I will monitor - when the numbers start to look good I will create a dedicated website with online entry form. Please spread the word and lets have a great day.

    MediGolf

    Hi........... My name is Alan - I have been involved in promoting golf for many many years and first contacted Darren at Golfshake circa 2007. Darren has done a great job getting the site to what it is today. I am here now to rock my own boat - I want your business ! I am working on a concept called MediGolf. This is basically a way to track your own training and tuition and to track what YouTube tuition that you are doing. There is little to it - it is just a case of bookmarking your learning and commenting on it in your workbook. You could elect to keep a word processing document - but this is not portable. My method is to use a free www service called Protopage - http://protopage.com - it is really great and is really simple . I use Protopage on a daily basis - it is part of my on-line life style. I have recently been to the Google Garage to see what they are doing in Manchester. For my community I have created a Protopage website which contains course reviews and their learning content. See http://protopage.com/googlegarage In my opinion every golf professional should have a Protopage account to communicate active club business - a great tool, the best of the WWW. Whilst on the Google Garage you can see my learning for creating Responsive Websites - Red Octopus. This technology takes minutes to learn and should be the standard for golf. Another way to get to Red Octopus is to go to http://protopage.com/redoctopus where I have a bookmark to my primary site. There are just two components of what I calll hybrid websites, other components include Wix, Wordpress, 123Reg, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Hybrid web development is so so easy - it is well in the capabilities of your average golf professional. If you are a golf professional wanting to improve his www presence - or simply a man starting up his own business. Simply ask and I will support you. Thank You for reading..... Alan

    The Golf Hub

    Hi..... I have started a venture called The Golf Hub. http://thegolfhub.net where I am collecting golf tuition and information about golf professionals that have a presence on the www. I hope that one day Darren will be kind enough to place a link on Golf shake to it. Please take a look and tell me how I should structure it.
