Re: About the (right) elbow

I think you are spot on. About which bit? Are you lacking distance, and tired of hitting 5i into greens where others are hitting short iron/wedge? Yep, exactly that. After the last round I played one of the players complimented me on my putting, and general play, but said something along the lines ...

About the (right) elbow

(Right elbow for the right-hander) In recent rounds I've been taking to heart Mr Hogan's advice of imagining my elbows are bound to my sides. The positive result of this is better accuracy, reflected in improved/consistent stableford scores. Still a few too many blobs to threaten the top of the lead...

Re: So, my golf course is gone

Well, I scored 31 pts there last week, and 33 pts yesterday, so I seem to be doing OK! :-)

Man it's a tiring track to walk around though...

Re: So, my golf course is gone

That's a damn shame. So, they're just letting it turn into a park or are they selling it off to a developer? Publicly, their stance is that they're regenerating the park. The course itself is within a big park, taking up about 1/3 of the total size. Apparently the other 160-180 acres aren't enough ...

So, my golf course is gone

As most of you will know my local course (Beckenham Place Park) was under threat and closed on 31st October. The 'owning' local council had let it slide in to near ruin, almost certainly with the intent of justifying its closure, and had applied for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Well...

Re: The local council closed my golf course yesterday

That sucks :fk - do you Brits say that? Yes, we have re-appropriated that phrase. Along with "That blows", occasionally combining the two as "That sucks so much it blows..." ...clearly officialdom wanted the course closed and the land re-purposed That's exactly our suspicion. They just had to dress...

My club ( http://www.braesidegolfclub.com ) has moved, as of today, to Selsdon Park. It's not very far, but it's also not exactly local. As the crow flies (do you 'mericans use that expression?)

Re: Most Common Damaging Shot to One's Score

One shot? Usually a series of two or three shots, because I'm unable to get the ball on to the green from 50 yards out.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Normal service resumed today, at least for the front nine. 102 (55/47). I had 3 nines, albeit one was on the par 5, and 3 three-putts. But I also had a birdie (the 13th again), and a par on the notoriously difficult 18th. Here's the webpage, if you need a laugh: https://dashboard.golfpadgps.com/roun...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

(*looks up the meaning of 'sandbagger'*) As a club member I'm not in control of my handicap, so I also know I'm no sandbagger. I'm also not in control of my handicap in exactly the same way I was not in control of my tee shots on the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th, 12th, and 15th. And in the same way...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Played in a doubles matchplay comp today. My partner and I won 3&2. My estimated score says 92 on my app. Really it's probably more like 95 or 96. Rumour has it one of our opponents thinks my handicap is wrong. It was 27 prior to Monday, 25 after. He reckons it should be more like 18! Par for the co...
