Do you have a Weight Problem?!?

We all know what a perfect swing looks like, as we've seen Rory's and Tiger's time after time, however replicating it is another story.  Snapping photos of members driving off the first tee on Captain's Days and President's Days I've seen a wide variety of styles and...

Rory’s on top of the world!

As I sit down to ruminate over this blog, Brooks Koepka is currently occupying the top position in the Official World Golf Rankings, however by the time you read this Rory McIlroy will have fulfilled his ambition to return to the No 1 spot after a four-and-a-half year...

Success in Saudi and another 14 Club Challenge

I was delighted to hear that Graeme McDowell maintained his lead at the Saudi International to claim his first European Tour title since 2014.  This win will catapult him into the top 50 in the world rankings, less than a year after the 2010 US Open Champion found...

I’ve never seen that before!

My golfing partners and I enjoy ourselves on the golf course.  We have a variety of handicaps however we all have our moments!  We've each hit great shots at times but we've also all hit horrendous ones... some more than others (mainly me!).  There's nothing worse...

Luckiest Golf Shots of the Year

Gary Player famously said, "The more I practise the luckier I get" however there's no doubt that sometimes lady luck shines more brightly than others.  I remember playing the 16th on a summer's evening when one of my playing partners hit her approach shot. ...

Baby, it’s cold outside!

Yes, the mercury is falling once more and yesterday was chilly, wet and very windy so I reckon I may have played my last golf of the year on Saturday past.  That doesn't mean that I've put my clubs away - I was actually thinking of practising indoors over the next few...

Do you know your distances?

"I hit my 7 iron 135 yards - all carry... no run today" one of my playing partners announced on Saturday, as she dutifully repaired her pitch mark on the fifth green.  Yes, her ball had travelled 135 yards in the air and landed within feet of the flag, yet again!  Do...
