Good pros are at least £30 an hour

It’s been a while since you’ve been round Piccadilly Gardens in the early hours, isn’t it?

35 over for the day. Mainly the first 8 holes as I was being overly coached and i was tense as fuck and thinking too much.    When I stopped listening and put the driver back and relaxed and

@PowerButchi  I am still a beginner but these are all the lessons I have been taught or learnt through trial and error.  The harder you try to hit it the more chance you have of it going bad

You will be absolutely shit and feel like an utter toddler who can not control their limbs. Then you will hit a good shot and think you are improving only to return to shitness again on the next shot.

Golf is Tory as fuck. 

It really isn't in a lot of places. Where I play has a Golf For Everyone ethos. 

 

Wrexham Golf Club directly across the road are pure tory though.

Well, Thursday night's lesson worked well yesterday, hitting the ball solidly, today not do much. 

Currently using every available radiator to dry my gear out 😂 Looking forward to the winter to work more on my swing. First season in four without a trophy which is disappointing so need to get myself back on track. 

 

Anyone else venture out in the monsoon this morning?

I drove up to Bristol for a round yesterday and got absolutely battered by the rain for the first 12 holes before it mellowed into an annoying drizzle.

It was an 18 hole par 3 course and I was on fire. Back 9 was 5 over par and front 9 only got ruined because I tried be clever and use a recovery wood off the tee. Twice 😒

For me it comes back to my previous post - Ended up 16 Over but know that if it was a full length course that would have been at least an extra shot a hole (in addition to the extra par) and would have ended up 38 or so over.

I think I might heed the advice above and spend the winter on the driving range with my big clubs and take some lessons. 

Excuse the pun but that should let me come out swinging next year.

Couldn't count my own score card!

Have an enjoyable round tomorrow @Suplex Sinner

When Covid tails off a few of us should go for a couple of rounds. 

This is a really good idea. Having lurked for a good decade or so before making an account, it would one of the most unexpected but interesting experiences to meet people from the forum. Particularly as it's golf related! 

In relation to the another post (Keith or Iain I think) having been a member of a fairly expensive club for the four years I've been playing golf I have to say I agree with PB that it is absolutely not "Tory as fuck" - I don't think I've encountered one yet. It is one of the most inclusive and friendly sports you can get and politics isn't a thing. I've had the extremes of being flown by helicopter by a multi millionaire in Florida to their "own" club having just met and chatted to them at a course I'd booked the play to walking round the local municipal course, in shocking conditions with a few cans. Both occasions were equally as fun and nothing mattered other than we'd turned up and got chatting. No extravagance, no pretensions, just folk being folk. 

Great sport. I await the inevitable roasting though 😂

Where I play, The Clays in Wrexham, is massively inclusive. Even have top up Membership and its 3 pound a pint. Some places can be dodgy and tory, but there's always good clubs around.

Absolute shocker today. 52 over, and even worse when I kneeled to tie my golf shoes on in the car park before we checked in I split my trousers from arse to cock and had to play 18 holes with half a hairy brain hanging out. 12 shots on the 340yds 10th was a special highlight. 

 

It was a fourball as well so I took 3 sides of banter. 

 

Im blaming that bracing wind hitting my pants.

Can we all go to Butch's pub after our round to watch Bargain Hunt? 

Pub is shut unfortunately. Its being sold. I'm now labouring for a Tree Surgeon. Which actually pays more, which is nice.

"Hairy brain" and "3 sides of banter" has absolutely creased me!

Irrespective of the golf, and one of the reasons I love the game, is that there's ALWAYS a story to tell from the round afterwards. 

Playing again at the weekend so will report back.

Sorry to hear that mate. Glad you have got some work though. 

 

And sorry again about the split trousers, no one should have to go through that.

I'm slightly bemused that someone hasn't made a joke about why you should always take two pairs of trousers when you play golf (spoiler - it's in case you get a 'Hole in One') (c) my 9 year old son.

On the 12 shots, so far as I can work out the new scoring system means that the maximum you can score is a net double bogey (your supposed to pick the ball up at that point apparently). So assuming your normally a 36 Handicap and it was a Par 4 you should only put 8 on your scorecard.

Just picked up some Wilson Launch Pad irons in the Amazon Prime sale for £348.

Was looking to get a set of Hybrid/Irons and it was between these and the Cleveland Launcher HB Turbos but the £100 saving swung it.

It also allowed me to pick up this beaut from Druids Golf. 

I now define 'all the gear, no idea'
