It’s Rules Week!

Little did I know, when I was penning my blog at the weekend, that the R&A would announce that it is staging a dedicated Rules Week across its digital platforms this week (2nd - 5th February) designed to engage golfers and referees alike across a variety of...

Have the rules at your fingertips!

At Monday night's Ladies' AGM the idea of having a "Rules Night" was mooted and met with approval as we all experienced our first ever virtual ladies' meeting.  How well everyone has done to learn new skills in order to allow the Club's AGM and then the Ladies' Branch...

Putting Practice

I've been watching old episodes of "Silent Witness" on BBC iPlayer recently and yesterday's case revolved around a discontented wife who used her husband's putter to batter him to death! Today I caught a few video clips of some of the impressive putts holed by Darren...

I'm sure you're missing striding down the middle of the fairways and having some banter on the greens with your friends - know I am.  Let's hope that the third wave of Covid-19 subsides quickly and some aspects of the current lockdown can be eased before too long. In...

The Voice of Golf is Silent

Peter Alliss, the "Voice of Golf", has died at the age of 89.  For me, no golf coverage was complete without the soothing tones of Peter Alliss.  I loved his casual observations and witty remarks, uttered quietly and calmly.  He had a wicked sense of humour.  Mind...
