    Embarrasing.

    Playing a round with my boss today. Get on to the first green with a lovely 8 iron and I realize I've left my putter in my car!! A brisk jog and an out of breath me and all was good again. What other embarrassing moments have you had GMers?

    When I was a kid my Dad drove me to a fishing match only to find I'd left my rods at home. Don't think I've ever left anything golf related behind but did play in an open at East Berks last year with a guy who forgot his putter

    Re: Embarrasing.

    Gave my works car to one of the lads for the weekend and took another which which was cheaper to run, travelled 4 hours to the Belfry and minutes before I climbed onto the Titleist Tour bus realised I have forgot my shoes. Legged it round to the Pro shop and paid well over the odds for a pair of footjoy AQL's

    Not golf related, but when I was about 20, and working for a high street bank, a women came in asking for some advice on investments. Pensioner Bonds had just been introduced and you needed to be 60 to buy them. I gave the women all the details, and all seemed to be going well, until she informed me in no uncertain terms that she wasn't even 50 yet.. When I was 20, anyone over 30 looked like a pensioner.

    Ouch. In my line of business I have to ask age before doing anything as those over 65 cannot apply for the higher rate mobility allowance and therefore not eligible for a Motability vehicle. Best to ask as I'm a terrible judge of age. I blame that there are some rough looking 30's and some fantastic looking 40's women. 20's are different as if there are rough its just because they are ugly, not weather beaten.

    A rough 40 can quite easily look pensionable but there have been quite a few 65+ that I've called 50's
