Re: Scaremongering?

I think the point here is that it was, in real terms, a very short time ago that Europe was a pretty uncivilised and constantly warring mass of loosely bordered countries (sound familiar?). It’s only...

Re: How I Cured My Slice

I find the hybrid irons very useful for distance ‘putts’ from off the green (and beyond the fringe generally) as well. They are a lot more controlled than chipping and there’s often less ways of...
