    Playing without a glove...

    Never felt the need to wear one. Modern grips make it easy to grip the club well. Just use McWets when it rains.

    Things That Gladden The Heart

    Certainly gladdened my heart when I left there in the 80s.

    Random irritations of the day......

    My son’s tennis club restart training tomorrow. I assumed that because it’s in the Leicester lockdown area that it would be cancelled. No, apparently the government have confirmed that it can go ahead as long as no more than six in a group. How this constitutes essential travel I have yet to...

    Debbie Harry

    Didn’t realise that she was in her 70s. Liked the music, joined the fan club and then went to see them live. Unfortunately, she had no charisma on stage whatsoever.

    Which club do you play at MetalMickie? We’ll have to arrange a round when we get the opportunity.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    Over the past seven years that I’ve worked in Leicester the majority of my work colleagues of South Asian origin have been Muslim - many of whose families went to East Africa or Malawi and later came to the UK. Whether this has any bearing at all on the current cases is pure speculation.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    It is a bit of an odd situation where I live just outside of the Leicester lockdown zone. Was trying to explain to my wife this morning why she should carry out our weekly shop in Market Harborough (10 miles away), rather than the usual trip to Oadby (3 miles). Her response was that they are...

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    Just seen the map issued but the government - we are half a mile outside, phew.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    I think that the border to peeved has been crossed.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    Still trying to work out where the boundary is, but think I am just outside. My golf course is further out so should be ok to play 🤞

    Random irritations of the day......

    My wife moaning as her hair appointment will get cancelled if Leicester has to wait another two weeks for pubs / hairdressers to open. We live outside the area likely to be caught, but the hairdresser is in it.

    Things That Gladden The Heart

    Was meant to start a new job on 1st April. Start date pushed back to 1st July and then 1st August with no guarantees. Parcel arrived in the post today with my work laptop albeit a month early.

    I played today and..(Rolling) -originally created by JohnnyDee

    37pts today in strong winds so quite pleased with that. However, missed three putts of around 2ft so need to sort that part of the game out (longer putts are fine).

    Where do you buy cheap golf clothing?

    Over the past few years I’ve bought around 25 golf polos and the most I’ve paid is £12. Mainly bought from County Golf, but also picked up a number of Ashworth items when Sports Direct had large discounts on these online a couple of years ago. I will not spend upwards of £25 on a polo and much...

    I played today and..(Rolling) -originally created by JohnnyDee

    Out this afternoon with a friend and my son. Continued my good form with an 85 despite 7s on 14 & 18. At the turn of the year I had only shot under 90 three times in total. Now I am disappointed if I don’t.

    Srixon q star

    I’ve just ordered four boxes on Srixon’s 4 for 3 promotion. I really like the AD333 Tour and assume that these will be the same.

    What part of your game are you working on?

    Since we have returned to golf I have spent no time on the range, just half an hour on our short game area, and a couple on minutes on the putting green before each round. The result is by far the best golf I have played. i am just keeping one swing thought in my mind. All this suggests to me...
