Im looking forward to the Ryder Cup

I predict Tyrell Hatton disintegrates and blames everybody but himself


He does seem to be a bit of a dick. Looking forward to seeing Fleetwood, who's a fabulous player with a great temperament. The big names like Rose, McIlroy and Poulter will have to have massive weeks for the Euros to have any chance.

the only chance Europe has is if a missed fairway basically guarantees you lose the hole

Probably put Hatton and Casey together cos no one else would play with either of them.

Which courses?

The Marquess is long but much more open than the other two.

The Duchess is short but tight as a nuns chuff, don't even bother with the driver bar the par 5s.

Dukes more of an old fashioned test.

Did you try and risk the driver on the Duchess?

As I end up spraying my drive about quite a bit I find the Marquess the easiest course despite the length, love trying to go for the big carry on the split fairway par 5. It's not even that long a second just a huge risk if you hit it offline.

I could have used an axe to better effect on the Duchess.
It is narrow ,but the rain made it impossible for most of us

I had 8 points after 14 holes - managed to get 8 more on the last 4 though !


Marquess is great
The double fairway hole fooled me as I topped my drive and then hit a great 3 wood over the hill . only to find the abyss at the end !

One of those holes that you play differently next time !

Had my best round ever yesterday. 77 off the stick and went 1 under for the front nine (par 72). Makes the back nine sound bad but I did have on line putts stop 10 cm or so from the hole on 4 holes in a row on that nine!! Not a remarkable round for a single figure handicapper but I was playing off 16 and so had 47 stableford points.

Congrats man nice round. First time breaking 80?

First time I broke 80 was quite similar. I was having a good front nine until I tripled the ninth and made the turn six over. :x

But then I shot 1 under for the back nine for 77.

A rare sight last Friday

Ex Irish Rugby International throwing up the best part of 5 pints of Guinness that he had tried to down in one from a very large " yard of ale" glass!
In front of 170 charity guests.

On his return from the bogs someone thoughtfully gave him a pint of Guinness

I play regularly with a member at my club who must be fairly unique in rugby terms.
Was a Lion without ever representing his country 🧐

You were fine when you weren't relying on the chief-choker, Henry, to miss a tiddler which is where it normally all went downhill on the greens...

I have thicker grips than standard but there are even thicker models available. Supposed to help take the wrists out of the stroke. I like them but not sure I'm putting any better. :)

I have a medium grip on my Odyssey 2Ball putter, and the idea is that it stops you breaking your wrists when putting. I find it more effective on slower greens for some reason, but on quicker greens in the middle of summer I rely on my venerable Ping Anser. I should point out that when I say more effective I actually mean less bad.

I got a blinding deal as a guy at the golf club had just been fitted for them but after one round decided he didn’t like the look of them and wanted the brand new pro model, so I had them fitted and loft & lie sorted new shafts (115g) and grips slightly thickened for £1115 😁😁
