What time does woods tee off today...UK time. 

 

Really hope he does well. Always more interesting when he is playing well and up there on the last day.

Yep.   Woods supercharges any event if he's in the mix.    I'm not sure he has a very low round in his armoury though.    Somebody will shoot a 65 at some point.     On those greens they'll face many, many clutch putts (4-12 footers).    Again I'm not sure Woods will be able to get enough of them.     Hope so though.

Woods on the charge.  McIlroy improving.   Casey's bum has fallen off.

Tremendous 73 by 61 year old Sandy Lyle.    12 shots off your age round Augusta in The Masters is remarkable.     The guy he beat in the 1985 Open (Langer) is no mug either.   2 shots better thru 14.

Warmed up at his local course at St. Fillan's, just the other week. 

 

Unsure if he learned anything from the temporary winter greens though...

Lyle has a habit of scoring a decent Augusta opener.

Might have money after round one with a little luck with Bryson De Chambeau

 

Got him each way at 28/1 and a little on first round leader as well...one player could finish level or beat him as I post this..... Brooks Koepka who has just hit a great drive on 18

 

also £2.50 e/w on Gary Woodland

Placed DeChambeau on at Betway so got half my stake guaranteed already. So close to being outright leader though!

In our wee family sporting bet I went for Rose and Casey.

Not sure what the placements were but nobody went really low and most of the field are quite compressed.   Maybe a mix of of easier and tricky placements.     I reckon one day they'll have most in the harder,  slopier areas.    Whoever scores well that day will be right up there.     

 

McIlroy was +2 but got to -1 before bogeying the last 2.     Typical McIlroy really.     But still in with a chance.    

 

There's bound to be someone who starts holing them from everywhere and they'll be hard to catch.

When did they change the rules so that you can putt with the flag still in the hole?

Helping speed up play is the main point, making a bit of a difference at my local as players become aware of new rule

I've been thinking of taking golf up myself. Never played in my cream puff. Without starting a new thread what's the best way of doing it?

Get up to Kilspindie Golf Club. They'll sort you out... 

 

:look:

 

 

(Sorry, Alim. That's the Golf Thread in-joke!👍🏻)

 

Pitch & putt. Driving range, putting greens. Cheap-ish learner set of clubs if you're serious...or not. Wilson, etc.Have some fun. That's how I started, personally. Perhaps a starter lesson or two from a local pro...? Never had a lesson myself, but I don't play it to be that competitive. Got to 15 handicap that way. It's enough for me. Plenty of far better golfers than I on here, will advise you too. 

 

That's only my meagre advice, mate.

Driving range and start with 3 quarter swing to get the motions right (shoulder turn, wrist hinge)

 

Easy to want to start out by hitting a driver as far as you can, but power comes with loose wrists and swinging within your means (dinnae try and copy John Daly's technique unless you're trying to hit balls off tins of beer)

Barack has pretty much said it.    Cheap set of bats.    Go and belt balls around at the driving range.    Take it from there.

Pretty heavyweight top 20 or so.   All in the hunt.    But Molinari vs Koepka shootout over 36 holes is an awesome prospect.

Upon investigation I can answer this myself.

Unlikely ☹

 

Cut is set to top 50 + ties and those within 10 of the leader.

 

Sandy is sitting T66 and 11 off the lead. Bit of a scunner for him.

Start with pitch and putt. You'll soon realise this is where the good players make their scores. Bruntsfield Links will be suitable for this and Kings Acre has a few short practice holes too. 

 

Swanston has a 9 hole par 3 course which is good for getting familiar with a course. They are soon to open their own range too.

Think Rory needs to do a couple of practice rounds with the likes of Phil, Tiger, or a Bernhard Langer next year. 

 

Heid's gone again. Try again next year.

He's been that kind of mercurial,  enigmatic player for years.    Brilliant but fragile.    Over-tinkering could destroy his game.

One piece of advice from a 13 handicapper. 

Don't take tips on technique from people like me. Go and see a pro, get some (2 or 3) actual lessons on the basics and stick to them. Every rank average golfer (like me) thinks they know it all, but you'd be amazed how simple a good teaching pro can make it, and how quickly they can improve your game.

You're better to find out for yourself what kind of game you've got before going for lessons.    Mainly the grip.     Go and hit balls,   whether it be at the range or just chipping/pitching,   and see what the natural,   comfortable grip you're using is.     There are three grips (right pinkie interlock,   right pinkie overlap and baseball).    The first two are the most common but the baseball grip is a comfortable grip that may allow a new player the best chance to learn and improve.   I've used a baseball grip for 40 years.     

 

Go for lessons by all means but the grip should be your own,   whilst learning at least.    There's no point trying to learn an alien,   uncomfortable grip until you've advanced a bit.

Yes.   But I'm thinking a newbie might not know wtf a Vardon is.   Or who Harry Vardon was.    

 

The Vardon is the overlap btw.
