    I played in Midlands qualifying for the above tournament on Sunday at Spalding Golf Club. Firstly, Spalding is a real hidden gem. A beautiful parkland course with gently humped and rolling...

  3. Re: Halfway huts - how good is yours? (if you have one)

    Yes. You can't call it the halfway hut or you will be in breach of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968. Can I recommend the "11/18th-of-the-way hut" or the "61.111...%-of-the-way hut". You might need...

    Re: Whats the options here?

    You don't get relief but you can remove the fence in the same way that you might move a red or yellow (but not white!) stake. Don't forget to replace it afterwards though.

    Re: how far should I be driving?

    Without knowing how fit you are it's impossible to know how far you might be able to hit your driver. The makers claims of x yards are just bogus - if I hit it I will get 230, if Rory McIlroy hits...

    Re: Need help picking new golf shoes.

    If you choose Adidas, make sure you try them first. I'm normally a 10.5 or 11 but had to buy 12 for the Adicross! I've never had bigger than an 11 for any type of shoe so I think Adidas have...

    Re: Puckrup Hall, Tewkesbury

    I haven't played the course but I have stayed in the hotel and it's OK. Not the best Hilton in the world but middle-of-the-road. There is a separate bar for the golfers though and I didn't have a...

    Re: Playing to your handicap..how often?

    Those are the stats for all rounds, not just qualifiers. I haven't had a cut this year unfortunately. Qualifiers are measured against CSS, non-qualifiers against SSS.

  22. Re: Opponent marked ball while my ball was in motion

    My guess (!) is that a ball has to be where it has to be; whereas everything else can be moved. So it's OK to avoid a deflection off a bag but a ball is effectively part of the course, not part of...
