    Re: Downfield late Spring early Summer ??

    Thanks, if later in the afternoon can mean early evening (i.e. 5.30 or later) then I'm up for that.

    Re: Shaving

    Wet shave pretty much every morning for me. Manage to do it before I'm properly awake so doesn't add too much time to my routine. Went back to traditional DE blades a while back as the cost of those...

    77 blows today in the winter turnup , 7 bogeys and one birdie. Short course, no wind, off mats but still chuffed with that. :D

    Re: Downfield late Spring early Summer ??

    Weekend of 2nd/3rd June is our Club Champs so not so good for me. Thursday 31st I'm working at Dundee Uni all day so an early evening round would be ideal, but probably no use for anyone else :-)

    If dates work, I'd be interested too.

    Re: What new courses are you playing in 2018

    Not much new on the list for me so far.

    Golspie and Brora are in the diary for end of May.

    I have a sizeable 'hit' list but no firm plans as yet - must do better.....

    Re: Single golfer St. Andrews: April 9-12

    From that list I'd drop Leven, not that it is bad at all but in Fife you have the luxury of choosing between great courses.

  17. Re: Golf Monthly Top 100 No. 1....... Turnberry March 2018

    Backing up what Karen says, we have mats like that for a couple of months in the winter and they really are fine to use. Great for high spinning Phil-esque flop shots to impress.
