    Would you buy a diesel?

    I'm in the market for a nearly new car and have been wondering about getting a diesel. My daily commute is a round trip of about 90 miles, mostly on the motorway. The mpg figures of the cars I'm looking at all favour diesels, but I wondering about the residuals and the possibles congestion...

    I'm officially "m'eh" ...

    ... and I'm delighted :D I joined a new club after about 10 years of being away from club membership. I was really hoping for a handicap of 20 so that I could be a Cat 3 (and officially a bit "m'eh" in the golfing hierarchy) for the first time ever. I was quite disappointed to get a handicap...

    Putter Aiming

    Bad aim/alignment while putting cost me three shots yesterday so I was having a practice on the putting area today. Something that was helping me quite a bit today was once I established the point where I wanted to start the ball towards, I would stand behind the ball and hold my putter so...

    "For Handicap" Cards

    Morning, got my first "for handicap" round tomorrow at my new club. My last official handicap expired about 8 years ago, so it's 3 cards for me. Must admit I'm a bit nervous as I'm not playing well at the moment, and I'm also almost terminally shy and don't know anyone at the club :( Anyway...

    Mark 7 VW Golf question

    This is about golf really. I have to change my car soon. As I've just moved jobs my daily commute has gone up from a total of 10 miles a day to 90. My current car (which I love dearly) gives truly awful mpg so I need something smaller and more diesel'ish. I've been considering a 2015 Golf or...

    The highlight of my year ...

    ... starts tomorrow. A bunch of us are flying out to Portugal for our annual pilgrimage. This is my 16th year and I absolutely love it. Great bunch of lads, lovely weather, some great courses and a bit too much food and drink. Life doesn't get much better :D We've got 4 rounds booked...

    Ball Spotting

    Something JamesR mentioned in the Irritating Habits thread struck a chord with me. I too am a truly atrocious ball spotter. Until advancing years caught up with me recently, my eye-sight has been good but I've always been awful at finding my ball. I'm red-green colour blind and wondered if...

    Lining myself to the target.

    This is a hypothetical question that I've wondered about for a while. I'm confident of some answers but get less confident further down the list. Are all of these ok? 1. On the tee I place my ball a couple of feet behind a handy weed / imperfection / something else natural and already there...

    My name's Brian and I'm a putter-aholic

    I need help. Badly. I can't seem to stop buying or altering putters. I went into the shop today to pick up a couple of new gloves and came out with yet another putter! An Odyssey Big T V-line this time. It feels really nice and I was holing them from all over on the little practice green...

    De-Lurking

    Hi Everyone. I'm Brian from Cheltenham. I've been lurking here for quite a few months, but now it's time to introduce myself. I've been playing on and off for years but never to a high standard (a handicap of about 24 is fair at the moment). I only play on the course about once per month...
