Re: The Golf Topic

It makes sense, Steve. If you think your ball might be lost you can hit a provisional third from the tee. And then pick it up if you find your original ball. When I played at Pitlochry in the 80s (lovely little course) the first five holes were all uphill with an out of bounds down the right. Being ...

Re: The Golf Topic

^^^ I “think”... If you return to the tee you can play your third shot. One shot penalty. If you take a drop and play the ball from a point near to where the ball was lost but no closer to the hole, I think that’s a two shot penalty and you are playing four. Someone please correct me if that’s wrong.

^^^ Watched it this morning, Steve. I prefer the racing for reasons stated earlier, but I agree it was incredible!

Re: C60 Titanium

SOBBO is definitely wrong for that watch. It stands for a plain steel case with blue dial and bezel (I think - I’m useless on codes!) I’d suggest: 1. Check with seller if you can. Did they put the wrong booklet in by mistake if they own several C60s? 2. If no joy there, email a photo of the watch an...

Sorry, forgot to add the page link, but I don’t think it answers your question.

Re: C60 Titanium

Thanks, Alex.

Rob, I think this is the page you want.

Unfortunately we are lacking a few model photos for these, but from the description:
  • Both are C60 Trident Mk2
  • Version 1 has grey lumed indices and hands, V2 has white.
Does that make sense?

Re: The Olympics

But, my favourite athlete of the games so far is Georgia Taylor-Brown. The strength she showed overcoming the flat tyre in the individual event to get silver and then that first leg last night, absolutely superb :clap: Absolutely. Superb! GB seem to be doing really well so far - the swimmers, triat...

Re: The Olympics

With regard to the Triathlon, I was careful (as was @TigerChris) not to give any spoilers, if that's what you mean. I referred to British success in the BMX, but that was much later, as I watched a recording of that, but I still didn't give the precise results. Ah, no – I already knew the results. ...

Well, that swimming really was a bit special. What a great event! Gold and WR for GB. :clap:

Re: The Olympics

What tennis and golf are doing though is definitely not cricket. You may well be right. I’d love to see Federer trying to smash a Dukes across Wimbledon, or Jimmy Anderson trying to knock one in for a crafty birdie at Lytham. Mind you, I bet Moeen’s nimble fingers could put a few interesting spins ...

Re: The Olympics

Loved that Triathlon relay - what a race. Agree with JAFO, didn’t seem 1hr 30mins - I haven’t moved watching it! Triathlon relay. Well that was great. They said it was about 1 hr 30 mins. Seemed much shorter than that. That's a great format. Good grief, boys! Commenting on the action, that’s a tad ...
