And we’re off… I’m trying again for a lower handicap

So, after much rain, cold and other pretty awful weather, the 2016 golf season has finally started! As well as the season, I'm trying again for a lower handicap!

My golf game is a bit rusty…

Anyone for a Rory McIlroy Golf Body…?

The last couple of weeks I haven’t played a lot of actual golf. Firstly, its that festive time of year when you have shed loads going on and secondly, we’ve been sharing lots of family illness!

Time to have a playing lesson.

Time to have a playing lesson. It would appear winter is here then. Not sure if you’re finding it the same on your courses, but it’s tough out there at the minute.
