  2. I just wanted to warn anyone about this company. They have a website which is www.golfcomponentsdirect.com and trade under golf_components_direct on Ebay. I bought £120 worth of stuff from their website over two months ago and have still not received anything. I sent dozens of emails and only got two back after 6 weeks of trying from the owner Andrew saying....it will be sent soon, sorry for delay, promises promises etc etc. After that nothing sent and still no further response. I then noticed the appalling feedback they have had in the last month on Ebay. They take your money and don't send anything or reply on email or phone. Fortunately I paid using Paypal so hope to recoup my money but steer well clear as they are the worst company I have ever dealt with online.

    i have to admit that i was a regular on the old..old forum but when it was updated i found it slightly more involved in navigating around and slowly stopped using it, now it's more like the old old forum i'll give it another go.

    Starting again and getting some kit

    Kit is quite subjective. I have always said that buying expensive clubs won't make you better, but poor clubs may hold you back. In an ideal world you go and see your pro who happens to have a massive selection of clubs. You spend three hours with him, get measured up, give him enormous amounts of money, and then wait a week for the clubs to arrive. You instantly get better, then two weeks later you are playing off of scratch, and are given the wild card to the US open. In the real world, you will buy what you can afford, and hope it works

    Worst Rule Breach You've Seen on Golf Course

    There is a bloke at my club who carries a spare ball in his pocket. this ball will always be the same make and number as the one he is playing with. I think you know what he does next. Unfortunately, despite the fact so many of us make jokes about it when he is in earshot, nobody has challenged him yest.

    texas scramble

    Seriously, I just read that 10 times, and it doesn't make any sense. This is how a Texas scramble works. It is a medal event, so the total shots of each hole are added together. All the players handicaps are then added together, and if there are 4 players, then the total handicap is divided by 4. The handicap is then taken from the gross score. Some competitions may specify that a team has to play off of 90% of their handicap (10% deducted). Therefore, if all of you played off of 25, that would be a total of 100-10%/4, therefore the teams handicap would be 22.5. I think you may have got a little confused, as the competition would not be 10% of the handicap, it would 10% deducted. Hope you understand

    The new handicap system debate

    I actually thought that was the case at present. My present course is a long 9 hole, and our handicaps are calculated from any 54 holes.

    Loads of tips really. 1) For me the most important thing above everything else if friendliness. Gold is a social activity, and if you can't make friends it's a waist of time. 2) How well is the course kept and tended. Next year I am leaving my club because the green keepers allow it to get poor before the sort the problem 3) Some people are concerned about the club house, personally I don't tend to use it. I think the tightening up on drink driving laws contributed to this 4) The pro shop 5) Is there a decent and helpful resident pro 6) Is the club run efficiently, but at the same time doesn't have too many politics 7) How interesting is the course, because it is quite easy to get bored. 8) Last but not least, the price

  28. Discussing the new system with someone today and theres a bit of confusion. You can use 9 holes to calculate a handicap so it says and I cannot walk 18 holes so I only play 9 (yes I could get a buggy) so I play my local 9 hole course which is not difficult and the way I understand it is I play 6 x 9 holes and submit those 54 hole scores I would be able to calculate a handicap , is that right and then any further scorecard submissions would alter my handicap Anyone help B
