Happy New Year everyone.    I opened the calender this morning, as I'd already done one for the weekend which took me up to the 1st.........and there was a quip for the 1st January.

 

So sit back and "enjoy the ride" for another year........

The difference between a sand trap and water hazard is the difference between a car crash and an airplane crash. You have a chance of recovering from a car crash.

It's not about quantity it's about quality,

I just look everyday and sometimes the 'vibe' isn't there.

Upon seeing a tour player hook a ball miles left of his intended target:

“That ball is so far left Lassie couldn’t find it even if it was wrapped in bacon.”
