    Golf vs Football

    Scenario:
    It's Wednesday 11th July, you missed out on Golf last weekend due to family birthdays and you are not sure if you will be able to get out next weekend due to more family birthdays.
    You also only really get to the chance to play Golf at the weekend as you tend to get home too late (circa 7.30-8pm) to be able to play much during the week but you will be let out of work a little earlier on Wednesday because a certain match is on.

    Do you go home and watch the game or go to your golf club knowing that it will be completely empty and you will be playing Millionaires Golf.

    I know what I will be doing but just interested in what others would do when faced with this.

    On Saturday, I played golf and while walking round the course I watched most of the game on my iPhone using the BBC's live coverage. Perfection.

    No brainier for me, you can always play the following week but you won’t get a chance to see England in a WC semi final for another 4 years, if ever again. Proper once in a generation stuff.

    Football. There is always a game of golf available to play. I'm 48 and this is only the 2nd time in my lifetime this has happened, it may not again whilst I am alive, gulp.

    Is this a joke? Obviously you watch England's World Cup semi-final. Why would you even consider doing anything else??

    You go and have a game of golf, course to yourself, drop a few balls and practice the shots from the holes you have issues with.

    Two weeks ago I arranged my 2nd round Titleist match play KO. We start at 17:30 on Wednesday. If England win I can watch the highlights, if they lose I haven't wasted 2 hours of my life.

    Get onto the course mate and have some quality time with it all to yourself. Football is guff anyway.

    I suspect the answer to this question depends rather radically on whether or not you like football!

    My club is in a league, matches are on a Wednesday night. All the matches are played at the same time each week, no team can re-arrange. You either play or you forfeit. Any re-arrangement has to be done with the agreement of all teams. The league sec put out an email on Sunday asking if all teams would be prepared to re-arrange. The replies were very funny, all along the lines of which (fill in expletive) wants to play then? Have the points, they are all yours.

    Funnily enough, all of the teams agreed to re-arrange
