  1. My 100th post! If anyone lives near by, we can offer 18 month membership from April 1st for only £795. See our web site.
  2. A wide range available, from Ganton with The Greyhound at the end of the road for over £100 a day to the likes of Hornsea and Whitby. All depends on what you want to spend. Bridlington and Scarborough both have Golf Weeks each year so you could take one of them in.
  3. I have to go for Royal Troon over St Andrews because I always think the atmosphere at Troon spreads further from the course. Also the 'home' of The Open is just up the road.
  4. Any of the Worlds top 50 are capable of winning a major, some that are lower ranked also. Some years ago Jack Nicklaus was asked about the size of a Masters Field against the other Majors, his answer was that half the field in the 'others' knew they couldn't win and were going to enjoy the experience while 98% of the Masters field could win. Sergio was unlucky at Carnoustie, so he can win a Major.
  5. It's the end of the Tiger we know, it's now down to Tiger to reinvent himself and be the player he CAN BE and not the player he WANTS TO BE.
  6. To wear a glove or not is a personal preference. As is taking it off to play certain shots. In my experience many beginners get blisters if they don't wear one. then once you are used to wearing one you carry on with one. It is the friction on your hands that cause these blisters and why a right handed golfer wears a glove on their left hand.
  7. I always take one of the freebies.
  8. Steady Eddie, Just plays and enjoys it, however good or bad they play.
  9. Same here, and they must be white.
  10. Even though I welcome the change, I can still see a problem. A ball moves, so who makes the final decision. A ball moves because a player "accidentally causes it to" means replace, but if the wind causes it to move, play from its new position. Who says what moved it?
  11. Your Hcp is based on SSS, not Par. So even though your course was Par 69 the CCS or SSS must have been 67.
  12. Don't you find it strange that many courses put their 'Winter Green Area' across the front of the normal green. This means when they are in use (to save the main green in frosty conditions) the ball will bounce onto the back of the green they want to protect. We, at Filey have 12" holes in our winter greens so when they are in use it is still fun to play.
  13. I think the CSS kills it for many low handicappers. Several times we (Cat 1 & 2) guys don't get pulled because of scores from the high handicap groups. It has even been known to get 0.1 back with good rounds in our minds. Also some society groups have a Rule that pulls a 'winner' 2 shots, what ever their score is.
  14. As long as the Handicap system works on our capabilities, rather than our actual ability, we will get these situations. Just look at the range of scores shot on one day, if the system was perfect everyone would be shooting within a couple of shots.
  15. The only way this two ball were quicker than us was because they were hitting shots before it was SAFE to do so. The problem with that is that if they get away with it a few times they think its OK. Wait for the first player to be hit and see what happens. I am not the sort of guy who would let them through and then give them some of there own medicine.
