    Re: Leaf deflecting putt. New rule?

    I wonder if this rule would be better for all if they changed the 'must' be replaced to 'can' be?

    Re: Annual trip to Scotland

    Booked on to play Roxburghe on the way up. Couldn't get on Lanark as they have a scramble on Saturday, so may look at seeing if we can get on the Friday we come back.

    Think all you like. It's a fact TFL have taken a hit financially since Uber started up.

    Odd that people are seemingly pleased that removing Uber from London will impact around 30,000 drivers who will effectively be jobless and be saddled with potentially crippling vehicle debt.

    Re: Jail for shooting an intruder

    A bit misleading. He wasn't jailed for shooting an intruder as it clearly states in the article he was acting in self-defence and the charge relates to owning a firearm without a licence

    Re: Ben Crane - Rule Issue

    One of the biggest myth with golf rules. People aren't penalised because it necessarily gives them an advantage, in fact you can often use the rules to gain an advantage

    Re: Annual trip to Scotland

    Thanks, very kind. Having a quick scan of the list, I imagine we'd definitely play Stonehaven as it is so close to where we are staying.

    Re: Annual trip to Scotland

    Well, no that's not quite what I said. We probably won't play Trump considering it is £235 for a standard green fee, versus £175 at Carnoustie, I think that is a fairly valid reason.

    We also like...

    Thanks for the replies.

    Hirsel looks quite nice and we'll check out Forfar. Might be one to play during the week as it is so close to the house.

    We have played Silloth before on our way up and...

    Re: How far do I need to be able to hit it?

    No disrespect, but that's rubbish. Chip/pitch close enough and you could not get a single GIR and go round in level. You won't get many birdies, but you could easily play to 12 if you were decent...

    You will be changing something, but you won't know what.

    Re: Calculating initial handicap

    LOL... OK, thanks for the literal reply. I guess I asked for that.

    Perhaps I should have said, I wonder why it is truncated and not rounded down/up as handicaps are usually.
