Re: A celebration of colour

I’ve had a few brighter coloured dials over the years....quick delve in the photos to get a few of them. 93E4E119-48C1-48C2-887E-824770610E3C.jpeg AB53A220-B5DC-46CE-9BF7-9C5C42A4D6CC.jpeg 98E32C17-46BE-4CC1-8697-B9465B0E0398.jpeg 00E8BC8F-41FC-44D4-A4C7-00671B1CAB73.jpeg D17EC17D-FA8E-440C-8DBA-BF0...

Re: The Golf Topic

Visited the range twice today, it paid off, as I had a cracking round this evening. Got 47 Stableford points, didn't score on the 18th but shot a 77. Our little gangs course record, it's a par 64. The YouTube tips are working for me ! AVO, that trip to St Andrews, sounds fantastic. I've never seen ...

Re: The Golf Topic

Are you wondering which game you are taking with you? Your A, B or C or F game? Back tonight for the 3 day golf (and beer!) trip. Played two courses....one a downland course so not too hilly but a nice course. The other (played twice) a real test and possibly the hilliest golf course I’ve ever play...

Re: Top off in the Morning or Watch Winder Overnight

I am very firmly against the use of watch winders. If they are kept on the winder they are continually accruing wear needlessly. IMO it is far better to keep them in a watch box and either wear them regularly in rotation or,if they haven’t been worn for a little bit,hand wind them a touch and let th...

Re: Can I wear my watch while Golfing ?

A dedicated golf GPS watch is very accurate. Depending on how much you spend you can get various features but all will give you the yardages to the front/middle/back of the green. Obviously they aren’t going to tell you to the flag as that moves daily. I regularly play with a bloke who is a slave to...

Re: The Golf Topic

Are you wondering which game you are taking with you? Your A, B or C or F game? Monday......standard stableford competition between us. Hopefully A or B but seeing as I’m still rebuilding my swing I will settle for enjoying the round without a real expectation of winning. Tuesday..... first day of ...

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

Night shift. Bed. Lovely. Git of a neighbour who knew I was up all night working and then proceeds to switch on every power tool he owns,and in particular an incredibly noisy saw, at 930am. (I use earplugs as I don’t expect the world to stop just because I’m trying to get some sleep but no earplug i...

Re: The Golf Topic

Golf is a stupid and frustrating game. 18 holes Thursday - struck the ball well throughout apart from my driver which was the ‘club to avoid’ for the round....things generally went swimmingly (bounces were the right way,puts dropped etc etc)...scored and played to handicap. 18 holes Friday - driver ...

Re: Can I wear my watch while Golfing ?

I can’t stand wearing a watch when playing golf for two reasons. Number 1 - I don’t want to know the time. I’m there to enjoy myself (which is a bit of an oxymoron as any golfer will tell you 🤪) not continually look at the time. Number 2 - It makes me feel ‘off balance’ when I address the ball. Load...

Re: The Golf Topic

Managed to get out this morning before work and play 18 holes. My lessons seem to be kicking in and my index is stabilising...35 points today and a missed putt from a foot so I’m happy. (Shouldn’t have missed it but then that’s what you get when you assume it’s a sure thing and just take a lazy swin...

Re: Are You Willing To Say Goodbye...

I would love to comment in depth here but I suspect it wouldn’t go down well with anyone who is actually vegan. I think I will restrict myself to saying that the loss of leather straps would be a shame especially if it was due to ridiculous political correctness.
