    Queensferry Crossing

    https://www.itv.com/news/2017-08-29/...ad-of-opening/

    All lit up ahead of opening tomorrow.

    Saw it from the Forth Road Bridge last week, stunning project and £245m under budget.

    Wonder what they saved the money on - hope it's safe.

    [The post not the bridge]

    Mind you from a 'Lounge' point of view it will allow quicker access to those wonderful Fife and Lothian courses.

    You don't have my permission to enter Fife - was there last weekend and came back with a wrenched knee.

    There goes Scotland's independence from England. Do you ever think that her majesty will ever let the Scots have her bridge.

    We've been debating at work just how the four lane new bridge replacing the four lane old bridge is going to ease congestion...
    Callaway X2 Hot Driver
    Callaway X2 Hot 3/5 Woods
    Callaway X2 Hot 3 Hybrid
    TaylorMade R11 Irons 4-SW
    Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2 Notchback

    Handicap: 2.4

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!
