My team - We played as Wales & The West (given there was me - Bristol, a guy from Cardiff and a guy from Cornwall) - came 2nd.

We lost to Dorset (three blokes from Bournemouth).

It was shameful though. A guy played off 27 in the Dorset team and at the turn on day 2, he was +3 for the entire course!!!!!!!!!!
Dodgy handicapping there.

I played ok but I regard the weekend as a success in that I never lost my wallet, phone or watch.
All of which I have lost on prior trips...

It was played in Stratford upon Avon, which is beautiful this time of year. Superb golf course and hotel too. An old English manor house.


Oooh sounds awesome. All places I'd love to visit...along with Devon  Smiley

This was the venue.

I did ok. Carded 80 and 82 - which +10 and +12 respectively.
That's also with planting my ball slap bang in the middle of the lake on the 17th.


Isn't your handicap 5?  You should have been 75 and 77.


I was given 5.
Being a 5 handicapper and being given it by a handicap committee resembling the North Korea politburo are quite different.

I requested 8. Given I played to 10, it suggests I was correct.

The additional 2 shots the next day may have been directly related to my Friday night out in Stratford to 3am babbling some nonsense about Shakespeare to them and this is a lovely town etc....

Always check for testicles, spectacles, wallet and watch.........and phone.

I would have decked the prick who got away with a 27 handicap and played to a handicap of 3.  Not dodgy.....dishonest, but I guess that's the corporate world right there.


Funnily enough he is the least corporate world guy there.
When getting ready on the Saturday he pointed out this is about the only night of the year he puts a tie on - unless going to a wedding....

He had an interesting story going around the course that his company (he is self employed) had the job the other year of lighting the crown jewels for an occasion.
I asked if he had touched them and its apparently illegal for anyone other than the official crown jeweller or the Monarch herself to touch them?

Learn something every day on a golf course convo....



Everyone bullshits and sledges on the golf course, even among my regular group of 20 + years, we still crap on.  It's part of the game and it would bore the sheet out of me if it did not happen.

One guy playing for Team Scotland is notorious susceptible to it.
Very very good player but a relatively easy putt and any comment of "Oooh this looks quite hard mate, you wouldn't want to miss this though" and he will invariably miss.

Two of my regular group played the fourball matchplay Final on Saturday.  They were playing off 6 and 8.  Their opponents were 0 and 13.

The 0 guy is a + 1 handicapper.  Belts the ball a mile, and his second, approach shot was always right on the money.

The bastard drove the green on the 19th, a par 4.  One of my mates, the guy on 8 was stuffed.  The other mate on 6, was off the green in the short mown rough, about 20 feet.....for 3.

It was all over in my head.  (Yeas, I was following them around as they are my mates.)

Bloke on the green putts.  Leaves it about three feet passed the hole but it is a down hill slider.  My mate, the bloke off the green, pulls one out of his arse, and holes it.  He putted it.

So, dude has a short slider to win the Champs.  My mates express their disappointment out loud and vocally, but I knew what the pricks were up to.

Dude misses the putt, and off they go to the 20th which my mates win.

'Drive for show, putt for dough.'

Hello, everybody.
My name is Dré, and I'm 15. I know I'm a little young, but I came here because I want to see change in the backwards nation that is Australia. I want to further develop my own political views, which I see as a little idealistic for even my own tastes, and open my mind up to other views. It's a pleasure to have found a place like this where I can share my beliefs with (hopefully Smiley) like-minded people.
