    People really need to get out there and play with different people of all ages and sexes, to see that handicaps of 54 are required. Ladies for instance, my wife hits the ball 140 yards max, my mum similar and she needs a 54 handicap. These are/were people currently playing within the system and just putting money into the pot without any chance of winning.

    No one is saying that people will get 54 handicap, most men for instance just wouldn't require 54 due to the distance they hit the ball, but higher than 28 are definitely required.

    Why is golf always so resistant to change.
    Oh cabby you seem to be a bit of a troll and just post subjects that you know that are going to stir matters up. I would expect attire, slow play and were to stand are still on your list


    For the record cabby just in case it matters, I am not gay, I play of 9, had a couple of rounds under par, if that is okay with you, maybe I don't fit in with your very narrow vision of matters...

If you don't want to play against someone who isn't very good (and isn't bothered about not being very good) then take up a sport with no handicapping. If you have a handicap, and play in handicap competitions then accept that some people will have higher handicaps and some will have lower.
    There is some sense in this but the point about “just play scratch golf” is one that keeps getting trotted out and is pure rubbish. You don’t even need to go into detailed discussion- just accept that amateur golf is predominantly a handicap sport and it is not possible to just play scratch golf - there aren’t nearly enough events.

    I've already said I'm available for turnberry but if you think I'm gonna drive 400 miles for a quick 9 holes and a half afterwards, you're right, you'll no see me. As it happens, why would I want to spend time in your company anyway ?? It's an internet forum no a social club 😂😂

    anyway back in the real world.

    those that need 54 handicaps (excluding the old and injured), they will not be lining up to play in the monthly medal.

    most players at that stage just like wacking the ball about with their mates. as bob said 30 pages ago, they probably wont even know what a handicap is let alone want one.

    I was going to turn pro before being given the chance to play off 54. It wasn't worth bothering before.

    Ha! I've not read much of this thread but he's a pretty decent guy that I'd be happy to play golf with. Opinionated for sure (has anyone ever met a cabby without an opinion?) and he can wind people up but he's not the only one capable of that on the forum.
    I like putting. (2017 handicap: 11.2...10.0)
