    Will Golf Be the Next Sport to Require Helmets?

    Why not ,I could get a really heavy one which will stop me looking up and topping the ball . Wouldn't have to shout FORE! with as much force knowing the guys up front are protected and will be able to stick my head in the many bushes my balls end up in without face getting scratched up . They would be adapted in the future to include GPS ,a drinks wagon locator and a self exploding device if you register a 10 on any hole . (hey that 4 foot putt for a 9 will take on a whole different meaning 💥)

    Who is on Golf's Mount Rushmore?

    If that's the case I hope nobody picks John Daly , there wont be room for anybody else !
  3. Just to say it was great ! Loved the layout of Falcons fire , disappointed with Disney Magnolia , had some fun playing Highlands Reserve a real friendly course and Celebration was good . Best course on the tour though was Crooked Cat at Orange County National .

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Thank you ,and congrats to the Americans for being as sporting as usual in defeat . The course in Paris really was set up to benefit European players and the only way to play good there is to keep the ball on the fairway .The Europeans have played this course many times .The only American who bothered to come over and play here in the French open was Justin Thomas who ended up with 4 points . Maybe a few more should have made the trip ?

    Why does Tiger look like he would rather be on a beach somewhere ?

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Im happy with day one . This cup has little to with form but with the attitude towards it . I look on day one for the players that are on it , those that embrace it and those that do not . Europe do have a great team spirit ,they all appear to get on and many are good friends . We seem able to mix it up with the teams we put out a lot more and are not in a straightjacket of he can only play with him type pairings . The Americans for me are though exceptional players rely more on self motivation and appear fragile when playing with and especially when relying on other players . We will see how it goes today , which is going to be all about whether the Americans can find some mojo to match the Europeans . If we ,Europe can get 9 points on the board by tonight I will be more than happy with day 2.

    Go as easy as you like pal (sorry about the typo , it happens , get over it ) but seeing as Im embarrassing myself I'll drop Jack (sorry Jack) and put Poulter on there ,that's the guy that's going to hand your best golfer of all time his arse at the weekend . That's in the competition that a little Spaniard with a big heart reinvented to make it what it is today . Take care .

    Hard sand in bunkers

    Joined a Club ten years ago with really difficult bunkers ,little light sand on top then concrete ,well hard sand underneath . The result was the bounce on my SW was too much and I had real difficulty in getting out let alone getting out to where I wanted to be . After years of frustration and wrecked cards due to extra shots (sometimes 4/5) in the bunkers I played against one of the older members in a comp and was amazed with his effortless and consistent bunker play . After he had handed me my arse on a plate I asked him his secret . " Oh you have to use a lob wedge in these bunkers " he said " Didn't anyone tell you ?"

    Young Tom Morris (the greatest golfer of the 19th C) Bobby Jones (the greatest Amateur of all time) Jack Nicolaus (the best golfer of the modern era ,possibly of all time ) Severiano 'Seve ' Ballesteros Sota ( no reason required )
  10. Just a few short weeks till we fly out to Orlando for 14 days . As previous are going to play a few rounds here and there and thank everyone for their past recommendations . Have decided on Falcons Fire , Panther lake /Crooked Cat , The mickey Mouse course , and Celebration . Might squeeze another in , will probably do the Disney walking 9 one evening . On that note what time does it get dark in October? PS if anyone wants a round while in London PM me .

    Finger Down the Shaft Putting

    Always putted with a baseball grip with varying results . My best putting rounds normally are the ones when Im hitting my irons well and get closer to the pin . So the question is …….. Should we spend more time practicing pitching and chipping rather than putting ?
  12. You are in for a treat . If you can find time when in north Berwick Killspindie on route to Gullane is a not to be missed classic links and maybe Musselburgh nine hole , the Oldest course in the world is something history buffs might like to play . You can even hire some hickory sticks and play it like in the old days . Anyway have a great time and don't play pool in the golfers rest , they are bloody bandits !

    Rude Fans at PGA Tour Events

    Your lot started it at Brookline in 1999. The Ryder cup that saw the arrival of the golfing hooligan . From that date the competition has been played in a hostile atmosphere and to be fair I quite enjoy it. The players seem to thrive on the atmosphere as well because its a team event and they feed off it . The problem is some fans at other comps think Ryder cup players are fair game anywhere .

    Rory McIlroy is overrated...

    It wasn't a suggestion but rather that I had come to my own conclusion . Maybe my post didn't cross the pond to well
