    Playing partner shot -10 today

    I was playing at West Kilbride today in the Ayrshire Winter Golf Association meet, my playing partner who is a pro shot 10 under. 11 birdies, one bogey and 6 pars. It was a great experience to watch his ball striking and shot making first hand. He didn't make any outrageous putts either. Some shooting. This is his card below.

    I assume with winter rules it won't count as a course record or will it?

    Who says it was played under winter rules? Just because it was the AWGA doesn't necessarily mean it was.

    In any case, with a score like that, one presumes he was landing the ball neatly, dead centre, of the fairway every time - on nice links turf ...

    Darn good golf.

    The uglier a man’s legs are, the better he plays golf. HG Wells. I got nice legs...

    I said "assume" and didn't say it was. Either way one heck of a score and a proper career day out

    The previous course record was -9 but because it was preferred lies, it won't count.

    His driving wasn't the best bit of his game, his iron shots were on the pin pretty much every time and most putts were inside 10 feet.

    Boring golf. I much prefer my own exciting game of golf where you never know where the ball will end up next
