Re: The Golf Topic

Hit the driving range today for the first time in a couple of weeks. Good news is that my woods are working very nicely - straight and true. At the other end of the bag my wedges seem to be spinning a roulette wheel to decide what they're going to do each time. Shank, fat, thin, high, low, push, pul...

Re: The Golf Topic

Local club, 15 minutes away. They have a full course, par-3 course and driving range. Pro seems a nice young lady and sounded very positive on the phone this morning. I aim to go for lessons and use the driving range for a while, then play some par-3 golf with a couple of friends before venturing o...

Re: Euros (Football)

England had an easy draw after they beat Germany, in the same way they did in the world cup. Really, it was poor management. Southgate should offer to resign and the FA should accept it. It won't get any better. Of course England could have won and it would have looked like a masterstroke, but it r...

Re: Euros (Football)

Not so sure about the manager, he was doing well enough but keeping tired players out for the whole of extra time then pulling others off the bench to play a few minutes in random positions and expecting them to be ready to take a penalty? Doesn't sound like a good plan and sure enough it didn't wo...

Re: Euros (Football)

He was 100% knocked by both players. I'd be surprised if either of them were enough to make him fall over but I can't see VAR ever overruling that one.

Whilst I'd love to see football without diving, it's been a part of the game for 20+ years and it's not going anywhere soon.

Well played CW. Does nothing for me but they obviously know their audience.

Re: Mark Cavendish

It's what's so incredible about sport. I have close to zero interest in the TdF and road cycling in general and yet I got goosebumps when I saw he'd won. It's not always about what happens on the day, but to win that against the odds given his recent history is brilliant.

Re: The Golf Topic

Thanks all for the advice. I've booked an hour with a putting coach to get the basics down then I'll start annoying my wife with constant practise around the house. If the coach seems to know his stuff I'll go back later in the summer just to check in with any bad habits I've no doubt got into.

Re: The Golf Topic

Played Friday and Saturday at two nice courses with work colleagues. My aim was to break 100 both times which I did. It became very clear that my issue was/is putting - I think only 6 or 7 holes out of 36 were 1 and 2 putts. And it's everything about putting I need to work on, alignment, distance co...

Re: The Golf Topic

Can categorically say that I've lost whatever luck I had earlier on in the summer. Still really enjoying it and glad to get 9 holes in most weeks, but the initial improvement has stalled and in truth probably gone a bit backwards the last few rounds. The main frustration is that my bad shots aren't ...

Re: The Golf Topic

^^^Aldenham is where I've been playing. They have 27 holes and I've stuck to the 9 hole to date. My 'form' of a couple of weeks ago has completely deserted me so I'm off for a lesson tomorrow to figure out what's going on. We have a big company golf day at Goodwood in a couple of weeks and if I can ...
