    I always thought you didn't play because you spend too much time jumping in the water when under friendly fire on the edge of a boat :D

    This is definitely how it'd play out if I took my wife for a round!

    Just when I was ready to call it an early night, assuming Spieth was running away with the back to back jacket. Things completely flip on their head.
    A nail biting end to the week saw England's Danny Willet take a late charge.
    What a great finish.

    Man I love the back 9 at Augusta on Sunday.

    And a sad week with the legendary Tom Watson playing his last Masters.

    For Sir Stains....I have been playing pretty good the last month, more birdies than ever and an eagle and almost a double eagle, sat. july 30th around 7:30 am, my time zone I got my first hole in one, what a sight to see that ball disappear and in wonder if it didn't roll off the back of the green somehow and I just missed it, had a few people playing with me and the owner of the course was changing water and just turned it on 3 and shutting off the water on 2...he saw it closer than I did, got a little certificate and another on the wall in the club house, had to buy beer for everyone there, good thing it happened early LOL Thought you would get a kick out of my one good shot

    Nice. Good work fella, sounds like you are hitting some solid golf this year.
    A huge congrats on the ace and the other eagles.
    Maybe now it's time to move on from the windmills and bridges of the crazy golf course, and move onto a real track! ;)

    Thanks for sharing Sir Powder.
    Hope life is treating you well.

    This weekend saw the sad passing of one of Golf's most iconic figures.
    The Legendary Arnold Palmer.
    May you rest in peace Sir. Pour yourself an Arnold Palmer at the 19th in the Sky.



    Few people have transformed any sport – perhaps any human activity – the way Arnold Palmer, who died on Sunday, transformed golf. Before he came along in the 1950s, golf on both sides of the Atlantic was snobby, reactionary and made little effort to broaden its appeal. Though some vestiges of the old exclusiveness still cling on, Mr Palmer threw most of golf’s gates wide open, with lasting consequences. From a modest Pennsylvania background, he played aggressively and, young and good-looking, he pulled in the crowds and rode the wave of the television age. He treated all four “majors” seriously, travelling regularly to Britain and lifting our sometimes parochial Open championship on to the world stage. He spotted the financial potential of image rights; even this year he was still golf’s fifth-highest lifetime earner, though he last won a major in 1964. The working-class, racially diverse, male and female golf champions of the modern world are his legacy. Golf is loved and loathed as few sports. But it was Arnold Palmer, with his skill and his sportsmanship, who made it what is loved and loathed today.

    Anyone watching this? For me The Open has to be my favourite Major.
    It may not have the pristine beauty of Augusta or the jaw dropping majesty and magnitude of the US tracks, but The Open is held on one of ten links golf courses, in the middle of the British Summer (see pic above). So it inevitably throws up some challenging conditions to test the metal of the worlds best.

    Day 2 saw a strong showing of US players at the top of the table, but in these conditions anything can happen.

    This year it is held at Royal Birkdale near Liverpool.
    Which brings back distant memories of this video game from 1983. Anyone else remeber playing that one?
