    WGC HSBC Champions [spoilers]

    No chat about this one as yet. Very strong field, just maybe a couple of notable exceptions. :blob: Louis seems to be kicking into gear through rounds one and two, a nice little 5 shot lead is not to be sneezed at, given the quality of the chasing pack. As to the big Race To Dubai finish...

    Had a bad day? Watch the pros do it too.

    Just to cheer us up a little after a bad round. Here's a short video showing us that the pros can match us shot for shot, sometimes. Always nice to know you're not alone out there.

    KLM Open [spoilers]

    Euro tour moves to The Netherlands this week, to Hilverschume GC, for the KLM Open. Always remember thinking that this course looks tight and more similar to my home course than most of the tour stops. A few greens surrounded by trees, that sort of thing. Nice course. Good to see some of...

    So I'm off to get married...

    So I might not be about much for a little while. I'm setting off in about 6 hours for the other side of the country (not that scary when you live in Scotland), to get married at this little coastal town called St Andrews. You might have heard of it. Getting married on Saturday in a church...

    Royal & Awesome clothing

    Just came across this UK based company when I clicked a link from an online retailer earlier. Now, I'd REALLY like One-T to review some of this stuff. I figure that any pair of trousers that comes with a free bottle opener can't be bad, right? right? Any fans of their offerings? :D...

    Luke Donald - Mizuno Masterclass Live

    Maybe not packed full of swing tips, but I really enjoyed this video. Explains a few things about his swing, how he plays different shots, a couple of little tips and has some fun with the crowd -

    A new course opens near me, tomorrow....

    Dunno if you guys have heard of it, or the guy backing it? :alien: From Bunkered magazine - So how long before we have a tour stop here? You know Trump won't be happy until he's lured the world's best. Apparently it'll be around £150 a round for the...

    Open De France [Le Spoilers]

    The run up to the Open has started. Kinda. Le Golf National hosts this tournament. A place touted as a possible Ryder Cup venue, which the owners have put a lot of money behind and from what I've seen, it looks like a very nice course. Field packed with major champs this week. There's GMac...

    Pro Swing Sequences

    Not so much a tip, maybe you could use them as a training aid, I dunno. But, found these Youtube vids, courtesy of Golf Monthly, showing some pro swing sequences. I like watching these, and just looking at where these guys are at certain bits of their swing...

    Q&A with Sam Torrance

    Fun little Q&A posed by the readers of a Scottish golf magazine to Sam Torrance. I always enjoy reading these sort of interviews and really just soaking in the experience of guys like Sam. I found the bit when he said 'my days are gone' quite sad actually. I'm sure he didn't mean it to...

    Irish Open [spoilers]

    Lot of players excited to see this tournament return to Royal Portrush. Bit of a special course to a few players. GMac's home course for a start - he has been one of perhaps 4 players (anyone name Irish major winners? :D ) who have made this happen. Gmac has stated that he 'expects' to play...

    BMW International Open [spoilers]

    Thought I'd get a thread going on this, since there's a decent field competing this week at Gut Larchenhof. Story of the first round has to be England's Chris Wood. 65 on the first day, after running the last 3.5km to the course in order to make his tee time! Stuck in traffic and not...

    TMAG/Ashworth US Open Scripting

    A little better than their Masters scripting, from what I remember - Adidas first - Jason Day - Sergio Garcia - Dustin Johnson (yawn) - Ashworth - Justin Rose - Ryan Palmer -

    Stag/Bachelor Parties

    Thought I'd start this to see if there's any difference to the way us guys celebrate losing a stag or a bachelor to the married life? I've been to quite a few 'stag' events over the last few years, organised one myself, and am about to embark on my own this weekend. The traditional...
