    Re: Course Etiquette - Am I wrong?

    You say you had a tee time off the first so I wonder why you didn't stick with that.? Fortunately our club doesn't have rigid tee times but at your place maybe they are there for a reason and you...

    I've played the course many times and while it's a great course.. unique, quirky, hard off the back tees... there is a problem with combining a members course where people are paying £1800 a year and...

    Re: best golf game on ps4?

    How much design is allowed with the Golf Club? Can you, for instance design holes broadly similar to your home course?

    Good way for stores to get rid of their old tat for 'reduced prices' so they can make way for Xmas stock at inflated prices and market it as brand new.

    Re: Against the spirit of the game?

    Rule #1 of matchplay - NEVER assume your putt is conceded until your opponent says so.

    Sorry, you don't, never do, never ever, bad etiquette to assume it's conceded. She deserved to be penalised.

    Immediately after the putt the rules official told her that it was a penalty and that her opponent had won.

    That's not claiming the match. Sorry, but you never...

    Can't abide places with a no alcohol/own food policy - take your own beer, cider, wine in a 2L lemonade bottle and let them challenge you.. beats spending ₤5 a pint rip off prices

    Yes, basically you swing it like you would a driver. However as it's so bendy, if your tempo is wrong or you swing too fast the head is out of sync with the shaft and it goes all over the place and...
