    On course quick fix required - pulling left

    For the second or third time this year I had a round where almost every approach, from 5i right through to PW, was somewhere between 10 and 30 yards left of target. I think I only hit 1 GIR this weekend, then I've been averaging 7 or 8 over the last couple of months. (16 handicap) The strike...

    Unofficial Handicap Maintenance - Society/Friends

    Does anyone have any free software/spreadsheet that can allow me and a group of mates (about 8 of us) to centrally track a mock handicap? We all started about the same time, but inevitably have progressed at different rates, have different commitment levels and spend varying time playing. It's...

    BMW Championship

    The standard here is unbelievable! Day holes an 80yd bunker shot for Eagle, very next hole Speith shoots an ace! Then both follow up with birds at the next! Day on -8 thru 12 is ridiculous shooting
