    http://www.randa.org/Rules-of-Golf/MainRules/15-Substituted-Ball-Wrong-Ball/SubRules/3-Wrong-Ball I now carry a rule book, as since this incident, we had has discussion about balls in bunkers and being deemed unplayable.. I have seen a VIDEO about it's the ball player who deems it unplayable in a bunker (maybe too near the edge etc)

  10. Albatross !!!

    I play off 28, and got down in 2 on a par 3 where I had 2 shots... what stableford score is it, for some reason I can't get my head round it. My mates are saying it's an albatross and about 5 points
  11. good grief !!!

    I agree For me, practicing chipping would be as far as I'd go, driving would just be plain crazy, no 2 ways about it.. I'd practice more in my back garden, bit it's only around 15 yards long, so I have no option but to goto a local park for chipping and the range for everything else..
  12. good grief !!!

    2 Sides to this, just been chatting at work and some say you should not be practicing in a park.. Others are saying, why not, if it's safe to do so, got for it... http://www.golf-monthly.co.uk/news/carrying-golf-clubs-could-cost-you-1000-87849

  14. Drones on vLogs

    It will take a near miss, or in ingestion to cause a clamp down I think.
  15. Drones on vLogs

    Hey All, Before I start, I love drones and am not against them in any way, I have 2 .. HOWEVER, I see on youTube the likes of Rick Shiels, Peter Finch etc, the use or drones more and more, which gives some awesome views and perspectives.. I am worried that these guys are not appropriately insured or trained by a recognised body (BMFA).. Also, the heights I've seen them flying are way above the recommended/legal limits (above clouds = out of sight).. Being as they state being professional YouTubers they are operating drones for commercial work, and thereby need to be aware of the rules and regulations : http://www.caa.co.uk/Commercial-industry/Aircraft/Unmanned-aircraft/Unmanned-Aircraft/ Why am I bringing this up, a few reasons, the possibility of endangering Aircraft (people on board), 3rd party injury, ruining the flight of these by others who do it as a hobby within the guidelines and the personal loss by themselves if they get nicked... Whats your thoughts, remember, I like drones, I have drones, am not against their use.. https://www.caa.co.uk/Consumers/Model-aircraft-and-drones/Flying-drones/
