    Re: Your swing and your body parts

    Er....none.

    Spend most of my time trying not to think about swing elements at all 😎

    Re: Senior Fiddle

    If your yellow tees are rated with an SSS then yes.

    Calculations are their domain if they want any cards. Not complex and the principle is only to build a picture not perform precise handicap...

    Re: Would You Believe It !

    Not sure your point?

    The fact is that on the SI18 hole the LOW handicapper is only ever giving a shot if he is giving shots at every hole.

    Therefore, as the more competent golfer, he has a...

    Re: Would You Believe It !

    As someone has already questioned, having the Si18 first hole actually favours the lower handicap player in all cases so it's a daft argument to support a really silly practice of requiring an 18...

    Not sure who you were communicating with and who was criticing you.

    However, I have learnt over the years to make such points to the organising committee in writing before the event and never...

    Or, put another way, it's a golf club not a football locker room.

    I fully appreciate that for some it's doesn't matter where they are; But at that point it becomes irrelevant to bring golf clubs...

    Re: Ladies match issue

    It's common on proprietary our session for members to have a morning slot (ahead of the prime 1000h society slot) and for the match to be catered ahead of it as well.

    Re: Ladies match issue

    Shame when the rational balanced view get drowned with the sterotypical.

    Do the latter games in amy club match consistently resist letting faster groups through if a gap opens up?
    Yes.

    Why?...
  14. Re: Stronger lofts even Mizuno are at it now

    My Wilson Staff fluid feel (forged muscle backs) from the 1980's have a 10 iron.

    Doesn't make any difference to how it works.

    Just get the clubs you are happy using and ignore the make, lofts,...

    Re: Water hazard query

    An interesting one looking at Colin's analysis.
    I don't share it because in my opinion the doubtful situation occurred when the original ball was found; at that point you don't know whether you...
  16. Re: To cut or not to cut, that's the question...

    Have you added a direction indicator to the face at address? It can be quite illuminating on longer irons.
    Certainly wouldn't recommend artificially closing the face at address for a single iron -...
  17. Re: To cut or not to cut, that's the question...

    If the 6 is your longest iron in the bag it does raise another possibility - that instead of an accidental issue around alignment or swing you are simply more comfortable with it looking a little...

    1. Just change the motor to start with

    3. Note which is the the short bolt of the 3 you have to remove/replace.

  22. Re: Is it worth replacing motor etc in electric trolley?

    Get him to change both (labour more than parts cost) but then keep both as spares in case of an out of warrantee failure in the future.
  23. Re: Anyone else fed up with matchplay comps against guys with hugh handicaps?

    Simple solution - play in Q open events; these people won't be there. Equally look for events which don't push their large prize tables because they are a magnet for them.

    Whilst CONGU has taken...

    Re: Where is my ball likely to be?

    No - the found position is irrelevant.

    You make your best estimate, or in this case guess.
