    My courses will both see what the rules say once an announcement has been made by England Golf.

    It's good to hear that there is a vaccine but I see the biggest problem with it is that needs be stored below -80 deg C. Is that for the original vaccine before knocking down into doses? So, how quickly does it degrade or lose efficiency above that temperature? They will need liquid nitrogen...

    You're Fired

    I've been very lucky and never lost a job. I'm sure you will soon find another.

    Ping weight missing.

    When I had a driver that the weight went inside the head and they had no replacement, Ping sent me the closest spec new driver from their range at the time.

    Wearing a gilet

    I have a couple. One is a Glenmuir that is also good for light rain - not waterproof but the rain doesn't soak in. I often wear it over a base layer so that keeps my arms warm and doesn't cause a restriction for the swing.

    World Handicap System (WHS)

    Our society has decided to stick to our method for the moment - which is based on the old Congu system but our CSS comes from the player who was 5th ( depending on the amount taking part). We have club members and those that are not. Club members could use their index as the basis for the day...

    World Handicap System (WHS)

    My Congu handicap was 12.7 and last week my indicative index was 13.7 and following the weekends adjustment I now have 10.7 as an index - giving 13 at Enville , 12 at Wharton Park and 11 on Harris. That all sounds remarkably sensible - given all the problems noted here, I feel very lucky.

    Tex Mex

    I can't play if there is no consequence. It has to matter to me as I try to play every shot with the same intensity. I play much better like that.

    Tex Mex

    I avoid scrambles whatever the format. It just seems that there is no consequence of a bad shot or, I could hit one of my best ever shots ( for me) and then have to play from another place because someone else has to get shots in ! Crazy format.

    Course and slope rating - anybody know the easier and harder courses in the UK?

    Yes - I really liked the different style - all set on a hillside. Great tea room too!

    Course and slope rating - anybody know the easier and harder courses in the UK?

    It had to be easy if I played one under gross on it last year and I had not seen it before.

    What constitutes a single digit handicapper post Nov 2nd?

    The whole point of WHS, besides being world wide, was to allow players to travel and their handicap to be relevant at a different course. Playing at a more difficult course than your home course gives you, potentially, more shots and fewer at a lower rated course. I can't see those that play...
