    On this subject I always bring up the mid range downhill par 3 at my old club, SI 3, where I often had to give two shots. Invariably the high handicapper takes driver and dunts it down the hill. If it runs onto the green they win the hole, if the front bunker catches it, I win the hole. How I play the hole is almost entirely irrelevant.

    Complete farce.

    If you need 54 shots you are wasting your time playing comp golf. Time would be better spent playing shorter courses and par 3 courses.


    Admittedly I see the majority of the women at our place shoot well into the 100s every time out but they clearly simply don't have the strength to hit the ball a decent distance and they rarely go to the range so just play with the swing god gave them. They fly around the course. Clipping it straight and rarely in the rough. They enjoy it so fair play to them.

    Isn’t that’s what smiffy said? I’m sure the implication was there hence the
    I do find the tone of this post very confrontational Homer, most unlike you. Is every thing ok?

    Errrr......my facts were correct! Isn't the Jubilee Cup an "honours board" event? And he won it playing with some other guy (you). Where was I wrong????

    Don't see a problem. For comps just insert rules governing who can win what.
    In My Bag
    Driver - Adams Superspeed 10.5 deg
    Hybrid - Adam Superspeed
    Irons - Cleveland CG16
    Putter - Yes Sandy or some other one that wrecks my score.
    Balls - Nike PD Soft. Until I've lost them all.

    That's fine. Each club can make its own rules for that as it's not a mater of rules for handicaps.

    What comes over, however, from a number of posters, is that they want quite savage restrictions on higher handicappers in terms of prize winning possibilities - witness the "nobody should get more than 1 stroke per hole" brigade.
