Hey I'm Graeme and I thought I would introduce myself as I've just signed up.

I've just turned 25. I Started playing golf about 3 years ago and only played constantly for 3 months getting myself to around about 23/24 consistant handicap (Which I was very pleased with as I was a complete beginner)  untill I injured my groin and my hip. Decided to get back into it after a 2 and a half year break and caught the bug again. Managed to break 100 on my first 18 holes back so was very pleased.

Being in the military I spend most of my time down the South West of England so planning on becoming a member of a local club once I have a chance to check them out. Also play about around the central belt of Scotland on the weekends when I am home with the family.

Went out and treated myself to some new sticks to get back into the game.

Got myself a TM Burner Superfast 2.0 Driver, 3 wood, 5wood and Recovery wood to compliment my new TM Rocketbladez Irons and Wedges. If thats not an excuse to get out in the course I dont why.

Thought I would make a post and say Hi and hope to see some of you out on the course

Cheers, G.

Thanks Buke. I am enjoying them so far. Just need to learn to hit a driver and wood from the Tee and I will drastically change my scoring. Atleast 10/18 holes I end up stuffing it OB or it lands just passed the woman's tees(thankfully not before them so far) Fingers crossed I can sort that out sooner rather than later.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
