Playing in wet weather last week,partner who was wearing a golf glove used a small towel wrapped around his grip to tee off.

Against  rules or not.

I just had a look. I thought it was a no-brainer.

Looks like I was wrong, again.

Well I'll be. Next thing you'll be buying a cat and backing into garages and the like.

I was out, drinking. No trailer, missed the door.

I see you all managed just fine without me.

Just don't put the towel on the ground while you play a shot kneeling on said towel.

How do you play a shot whilst kneeling on the offending towel?

So Max, if I don't respond to your comments, it's just because I'm ignoring you because I think you're an arsehole
