    Rule Forum is it alive?

    Maybe there's just not that many rules related queries ... there are lots of other forums and plenty of people. Doesn't mean forum areas need to be closed! Merry Xmas

    I think there are too many commas, it should be 'sherbet orange'

    #LeafGate - thoughts ?

    It's just about the only time you must replay a shot during stroke play (and hence why I knew the rule). Unfortunate in this case, as him not knowing he could of replayed is gonna be costly in the long run too. simplier rules is obviously the target but they are never gonna be 'hit it in the hole' simplistic. Radical changes will cause much confusion even when they are introduced as people won't read the new rules either!

    As above, play speed golf .... but strictly speaking the player retains the honour if no player beats their score.
  5. Pairs would allow partners to advise each other though and hence wouldn't be allowable (even if you said you didn't do that the fact is that conferring on shots is allowed). The reason for asking for away comps and team comps to be returned is for end of year review. To see if players are fiddling the system and playing poorly in qualifiers and the winning all the pairs and team events.
  6. Treated as a one man qualifier against SSS, so yes you can get cut and go up 0.1 Not sure I understand what you meant by the pairs invitational though. Supplementary should be your own card only, not part of any pairs comp.

    Albatross !!!

    5 points is correct, and effectively you scored a nett zero! generally you would only give them names on your gross score, so you scored a birdie ...of course there is no hard and fast rules for that so fall it whatever you want

    refreshed and ready for WEEK 30 -2017

    Surprising round of 74 on Sunday (2 over), CSS didn't move, and 40 pts got me a win on count back (1 under, and 22 pts, on the back). Presidents Prize board comp, and a cut to Category 1 .... quite happy

    Are you happy to see the PGA on the BBC?

    6 hrs 'ish each day, starting on red button (online, iplayer etc etc) then on bbc2 for last few hours. seems fine for me, couldn't care less who introduces it all, etc as that's a good time for toilet break etc. Just wanna watch the golf (and I have sky already, so I'd be watching it anyway) moving to bt sports for masters will mean even worse viewing figures ... but it appears the owners don't care about viewing figures just the money they earn from selling the rights, as the R&A have already proven with The Open, and now Masters are doing again.

    Huge potential for more viewers has got to be good. sky viewing figures are tiny compared to bbc, and I don't believe that the potential lack of the gizmos from sky would mean anything to new players watching (and surely the growing the game is for new players, not new viewers). The pictures will be from us broadcaster anyway so sky will not add much to the visuals anyway. now if bbc can snatch the first two days of masters coverage too then that would be huge.

    Best finishing comment I've ever seen to a first post by someone not even connected to the person being discussed. Caped Crusader!

    where you playing this bank holiday ?

    Great break at The Vale, 2 rounds on the National were wildly different (alcohol intake probably affecting one of them more than the other). highlight though was day1 when on the third hole I managed my first Hole in One !!! Absolutely buzzing over it, quite surreal to see it drop and actually didn't know what to do for a little while, kind of stunned! Whats next on the golfing list of things to do then?
  14. Skechers are currently on the feet, with Puma Biofusion, Footjoy Hyperflex and Adidas Boost in rotation all the time. They all go through the same abuse of seasonal weather conditions. All holding up well ... it's been year since I threw away shoes based on poor condition (got rid of my black Adidas Tour 360 because they shape had been lost in them, but they were still perfectly serviceable and would have carried on) I've never seen such poor condition of golf shoe as those puma and would be interested to hear what they say about them. As I said I love mine and a few other guys I know have bought on my recommendation, so amazed to see yours so bad. I'd definitely be asking them to comment on what's happened to them. BTW. Heel issues I've always found to be poor fitting. I've never had any heal issues with my adidas and they are usually punished but I always buy 9.5w in them and they are like a glove (even trainers) those ecco look just as poor too
