    I know you’ve suffered enough but can you explain how you misread it quite so much? Trust you made birdie

    Monte Rei or Old Course

    I’d go with Monte Rei, some incredible holes and more memorable than the Old. Won’t beat you up as generous off the tee but hard to score well. The food, balcony and other bits really nice too. Enjoy

    Good place to do it, Tom Watson might say the same.

    FootJoy Giveaway

    Our first winner is Canary_Yellow for this effort. Without exception all very funny and nice to know we're all capable of some truly appalling shots (and a bit of bad luck) -- My most unfortunate opening tee shot is so bad it’s permanently etched in my memory. I think I need some 1-to-1...

    Awkward situations

    When I was about 14 my dad and I played behind a bloke who moved his ball on four holes on the trot - he was probably doing it earlier but we only caught up with him towards the end of the round. He'd look round and then keep kicking it into position a la Judge Smails in Caddyshack. My dad was...

    Flying with golf clubs...

    The Sun Mountain Glider is incredible and makes the generally big schleps around airports very easy and you can get most of your clothes in

    Does anyone chip with a shut body?

    This is brilliant, thanks

    Does anyone chip with a shut body?

    Yes, lots of run and a bit of hook spin but still a nice strike

    Does anyone chip with a shut body?

    As someone who's spent the past two decades using only their hands and knees to hit a chip shot I've just tried this on a lunchtime raid to the practice ground. If you are miserable around the greens then it might be worth a try - I managed to hit a dozen 54˚wedges without anything untoward...

    TV commentary team assisting players

    It’s obviously unfair but not sure how you stop it, bit weird to just sit on your hands and say nothing. Still find it bizarre that Tiger lost his ball off the 1st tee at the Sandwich Open.

    Spikeless Shoes in Winter

    Very easy to keep clean as there’s very little to them. And waterproof yes, sure there are pricier shoes that are better but they’re so comfy. I might have odd feet as always struggle with blisters or whatever but played about 50 rounds in these and they’re spot on

    Not closing out rounds...

    I’ve had to stop myself and playing partners (sounds a bit weird but bliss is ignorance) reading out the scores after nine holes as I obsess either way about it. Only advice (which I can’t heed myself) is to keep trying to go forward for the last few holes - getting steery and laggy never really...

    Spikeless Shoes in Winter

    Depends on the course but this is a great all-rounder; very easy when it’s baked and loads of grip in the wet. Comfiest shoe I’ve ever had after a lot of blister-based golf https://www.footjoy.co.uk/en_GB/golf-shoes/men/spiked/contour/011CON.html?dwvar_011CON_color=54113

    Would you want to go for a pint with Matt Wallace?

    Treated his caddy terribly and lots of strops. Pete Cowen said he should be banned for his on-course behaviour. All a bit over intense but seems in a great place now and trying hard with everything

    Would you want to go for a pint with Matt Wallace?

    Just a quick one. Sure I’ve seen him doing Michael Jackson on his Instagram. He’s actually pretty good
