That's why I enjoyed golf while I played very rare anyone sledged unless the people involved knew each other well.......no place for sledging in golf in my opinion......matchplay brings the worst out in people


It was all good fun - lots of laughs. No-one taking it seriously.

Match play isn't golf - it's a contest between two people using golf as a forum for said contest.
