  1. voted yes, but the technology would have to be viable, reliable and cost effective. I't doesn't matter how many people are killed through drink driving it will always be too many simply because drink driving is easily avoidable. If you want to drink dont use your car, get a taxi, a bus or walk home, it's not rocket science. Maybe punishments should be harsher and the blood alcohol limits stricter. I know guys who can drink for England and not get affected and others who have one drink, be legally under the limit, and cant walk straight. Personally, i'm all for zero tolerance on drink driving. If you go to the pub for a beer and want to drive then drink alcohol free beer. Most pubs sell it and its actually not bad these days. I'll step down of my soap box now guys
  2. Sure does Erik, but i find blaming the kids for lack of playing opportunities works wonders
  3. Yep, unless he's going all Roid Rage . When i read the topic title i thought by "bulking up" he meant "eating pies". In 6 weeks he could really bulk up on the pies diet.
  4. I use a Cleveland Smart Square blade putter and it's the best putter i've used. Feels nice, good weight and looks like the sort of putter Darth Vader would use. Not strictly Cleveland but as they own the brand Srixon irons are fab. I got fit for Z155 irons with miyazaki jinsoku graphite shafts, love them.
  5. Indeed, whilst browsing sports direct the other day I almost choked on my earl grey when i saw that Callaway CXR power had increased from £9.99 to £10.99. Extortion I tell you. I'm the mind to send them a very firmly worded email for them to ingore. Seriously though, companies like Titleist can charge more for their balls (within reasonable limits) because they know people will still buy them. There are so many deals to be had if you are willing to do the leg work. Also, I actually like the CXR power in Yellow as i can see it and it doesn't actually feel like a rock .

    Agree. I think we look at this from a western point of view. Over here if someone flipped you the middle finger not much (if anything) would be done. In many eastern cultures they are very high up on respect, politeness and general good manners and there is nothing wrong with any of those (some over here could do with learning the above). In some Eastern cultures even showing the soles of your feet is a criminal offense. So while it seems like a harsh punishment to us he probably feels he got off pretty lightly, especialy after seeing him on hi knees begging after the tournament. I'm asuming the ban only applies to the Korean Tour?. If so he still has options for the next 3 years.
  7. Thankfully not, otherwise i'd be broke . Had someone watch me take a few swings and on each one i thinned, shanked, pulled, swore at, sobbed uncontrolably at, it seems i was coming out of posture and swinging very flat. Using a mirror helped with that. And man was i tense, trying to keep everything as a unit just made my upper body rigid. The ones i was hitting well i was indeed using my left side with the shoulder as a trigger but rotating it down at the start and the whole thing felt nice and loose. I'm my own worst enemy at times. When i'm hitting well all it takes is for someone to say "maybe this is how you should do it" and i'm like "hmm i wonder......"
  8. Up until this weekend i have been hitting my irons really well till someone stated i start the swing moving the clubhead first before the hands, arms etc. and according to them i should be moving the club with my shoulders as a "unit" I, being the moron i am, decided to try this and i have hit pretty much all the bad shots you can think of. I noticed that if i start the swing with the shoulders turning down my arms go stiff and at when coming into impact my body raises up, however when i swing like I normally do which feels free flowing i seem to stay in posture. So, my question is, can tension in the arms/shoulders/hands potentially cause topped/thinned shots and the dreaded hosel rockets?.
  9. You can get pretry much whatever you want on a pizza over here. You can even get it deep fried followed by a deep fried Snickers for desert
  10. With Deliveroo and Uber Eats you can get your fave food pretty much wherever you want, heck i might have to order something myself mid round. Might be a bit hard to eat a 12" meat feast pizza while carrying my bag though
  11. Usually 9 holes. I love to play 18 but often dont have enough spare time. 9 holes is good for helping the golf addiction cravings
  12. Come on now, do we really need comments like this?. It may have been "ok" at a working mens club variety show in the 70's but no place for it here.
  13. ^^ This. I see too many new players or high hcp players using Pro v1s or other similar tour balls because they often told they are the best available. Start off with something cheap(ish) like a 2 piece ball, things like Srixon Distance, Callaway Warbird/CXR Power or the like. When you get better and more confident then look at moving up to either a higher grade 2 piece (AD333, Q start etc.) or a mid level 3 piece. Recycled balls (pearl/mint grade) are a good option till you get good but there are often great deals on new balls if you are willing to hunt them down. On the other hand, if you want to play Pro V's then go for it. At then end of the day we cant tell anyone how to spend their money (not wisely anyway )
  14. Gotta be honest, i didn't know members were actually banned, just thought they went elsewhere. Good to know and a nice touch in making it clear re banned profiles.
  15. We must all be loners over here . I often go out to play by myself and it's rare that anyone asks each other if they want to play together. It's happened to me once and it was good fun. I'm ok with playing solo as i play early mornings and quite a bit in the winter so i'm often alone on most of the course anyway. I do find that i have conversations with myself when i play so may just be losing the plot a little.
