My favourite story from our round on the Old Course. 2 English v 2 Americans and one of the colonials was not playing well and not really doing what his caddy was telling him. On about the 14th the ball went right and we were not sure whether it was playable so the American asked whether it was all right?

The caddy's reply - Somewhere between average and shite.

Standing in front of a player who is driving from a tee is a dangerous occupation and if you do it you must accept the risks. There is no liability on the player in those circumstances, it was just an horrible accident.



A question, what do you do on the course when you hear a shout of fore? I turn away and cover my head as I think there is very little else you can do. The only time I have been hit involved parrallel fairways going in opposite directions and I got hit in the chest from about 100 yards. Didn't see it coming and had a very colourful bruise the next day.

I doubt she could have seen the tee shot. Most of that hole is big hills and dips along the side...especially close to the green. Majority of the crowd wouldnít be able to see the tee at all. You can barely hear the shouts of Fore there either. Not sure what the answer is but itís a very unfortunate accident. The French golf federation are covered as long as itís within 15 metres of the ropes I believe.

I was there Saturday and Sunday and I don't reckon there's any chance you would hear a shout from the player. You're quite a long way away and there's plenty of background noise from around the course. I regularly lost sight of the ball in the air, but it seemed that various people around managed to pick it up better than me. Only one shot t heading in our direction and a few people around me shouted to duck etc.

It is incredibly unfortunate that this poor woman got hit like that, but I very much doubt that a shout from the player would have made any difference.

It's great that doctors are now paid in sympathy so there's plenty to fund her medical care thanks to the multi-millionaire's gesture.


Personally I'll think he's a wanker until I read that he's stumping up the bills, though I think he probably will or the PGA will.

Think about it

What do you think would happen the minute he goes public with his generosity ?

Exactly.

And it wasn't exactly him being unsafe, or deliberately doing it.

He's marginally hit a ball wrong, and unfortunately, the worst possible outcome happened.

Woman hit in the face by the ball of Tyrell Hatton at the Alfred Dunhill Links yesterday. She seems OK but right square in the middle of her forehead.

The Golf Thread

I've been using Golfshot on an iPhone to keep scores, get distances and track shots. Love it but it's a pain having to use the phone especially if its raining. I was wondering whether to get a second hand S20 or if a series 2 Apple Watch linked to the app will do the job just as well.

But it looks like even a new s10 would be way cheaper than the apple option.

I don't think I want any more features than I'm using ATM.

Recommendations? What are people's experiences of say s10 s20 s1 s2??

Pencil. Waterproof pen if you are feeling flush.

Garmin G3 does the distance just fine for me. Admittedly its crap as a pencil.

I’ve got a Garmin

Hardly use it. Prefer the old fashioned marker posts and feel.

Probably why I’ve been sent stuck on 10 for 5 years

I like it on strange courses where its hard to judge distance. The garmin is pretty good for that as well, though not half as stabby.
