    World Handicap System (WHS)

    Not too sure if anyone has mentioned this on the thread, but the USGA for their world handicap state the equation as being: Course Handicap = Handicap Index x (Slope Rating / 113) + (Course Rating – par) subtle difference but can give you an extra shot. Everything I’ve seen from England golf...

    What does Augusta look like at the moment?

    You do realise those pictures aren’t live and can be several months or years old?

    Play it loud

    Madam Helga and Bartender & The Thief by Stereophonics Just Hold On & Higher State by Toploader Power Of Love by Huey Lewis & The News Welcome To The Jungle by GnR And oddly via drunken student days: 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton. That gets cranked up to 11!

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

    6.3C Wrong bal

    how did he drop the right ball? I’m taking it that the right ball would still be in the place he originally hit it to?

    Course design you dislike.

    Other easier, cheaper and more natural means to do that

    Course design you dislike.

    Blind tee shots can be a pain the first time you play there, but after that it means you can commit to the shot. Not a fan of run off areas where they have left it rough half way into the run off. Just lazy. Big peev is fake fountains in a lake. Why. Just why?

    Lake District help

    Another vote for Whinlatter park, lovely walks etc.. round there, been a few times now. If the weather is nice then swing past Aria Force waterfall as well. Also Coniston is nice, walk up the Old Man which isn’t too strenuous.

    Powfoot or Eden?

    Powfoot every day of the week over Eden. Although personally I’d just eat it up, crack on to St Andrews and play there. Mate rents the apartment at Thornhill GC and says they’ve lost the greens over the last couple of years (he also joined Powfoot). Lochmaben is ok. Tbh they are all a fair bit...

    Films

    I’d second that opinion. Was really looking forward to it and just felt a bit let down. Watched The Greyhound last night. Definitely worth a watch! Has Tom Hanks ever made a bad film?

    How should the winner be decided if scores are tied?

    Our Captains was a 3 way tie yesterday. Count back handed it to the higher handicapper. Granted, not the way I’d like the captains comp to be won, I’d rather see a 3 hole pay off or something and see if you have a single, stand out winner. But, rules are rules and everyone knew them before...

    Backstopping

    I wouldn’t say there’s any penalty there. Did player A say anything that they were going to mark their ball? Plus, it’s from 40 yards away! I could understand if it was closer, but at 40 yards I’d only be trying to get within 10 foot.
