    Re: Air Shot

    Feel for her, a waste of a shot.

    Saw Paul Casey badly top a ball on the par 5 dogleg(15thish), badly got off the ground, to my surprise he was laughing about it as he walked down the hole.

    Interesting point by Garryinderry, never understood why you didn't but makes perfect sense now.

    Her foot slipped very slightly, but it didn't look like enough to make her miss the ball completely. You'd have thought she'd still catch it with the toe or heel or top it or something. Bizarre.

    I used to feel really bad taking big foot long divots on tee boxes and leaving them. makes sense though when you see what can happen.

    standard advice...OK to fill divot holes using sand/seed mixtures often provided as you can see what has been repaired. Not so easy to spot the divot put back exactly where it came - stand on it without realising and a slip is always possible.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    I had 1 on Sunday, but at least I was in the middle of a Willow tree, all the strands of the willow were hanging down all around where my ball was, I took a couple of casual back swings which seemed OK, but then when I unleashed I got tangled up like being wrapped up in an alien Ivy, it was funny but I could have broke my wrist as the strands of willow just stopped me in my tracks!

    Wow. Seems cruel, especially on the tee box considering you can knock the ball off the tee and not get penalised.

    It does but its all in the rules. If you take a shot and just knock the ball off the tee then its the same boat.

    Re: Air Shot

    Played Pleasington years ago pulled my second to 18th and ended up on first tee.
    Playing over a bunker I took a huge divot out of the tee, good shot though.
    I was shouted at by two members sitting outside having a pint for not replacing my divot.
    I went over and explained why I didnt replace a divot on the tee.
    They more or less accused me of making it up.
    I told them to go ask the pro .
    They came back apologies were offered and they bought me a drink.
    Every days a school day.

    Tiger did that on 13th I think at Augusta when a bird flew past him on his swing.
