Short game is tidy. Driving is another thing.

One of the top top golfers in the world hit his ball onto a freeway today, and into a lads fucking back yard :grinning:

I’m having my annual game of golf today :clap:


#705

Play well, pal.


#706

I won’t mate, but the format of the game (a scramble) means its somewhat suitable for lads like me who can only putt the ball.


#707

If you can putt the ball you could actually be a better golfer than mcilcunt

Played Donald’s place yesterday, more enjoyable than I remember it being last time. Greens not up to scratch yet since the remodeling though.

Playing Doonbeg tomorrow week. Got a twilight rate for €50 which isn’t too bad. Should just about get the 18 in. Any tips or local knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Have never played links golf before and have a tendency to hit moon balls or shots with high loft so dont want to make a complete fool of myself. Might play Kilkee down the road the day before to get a feel for it.


#716

Forgot to add I dont tend to hit it straight either. Ball tends to fade/slice off the tee.

You don’t need to be hitting driver on a lot of the par fours, a good few of them are blind and you end up in trouble if you go for it. I enjoyed the last time I was there, thought it was much-improved when I played it.

Played it before. Nice track. Lahinch is superior I would say. The two of them are my only experiences of links golf. Links is a bit of craic. Don’t be ballooning the ball. Keep her low and play under the wind as much as you can. It’s a bit like crazy golf* at times in that you are using the landscape (hills, ridges, etc.) to direct your ball. The ball will run on and on…

*I’m sure proper golfers on this forum would disagree.

Played Doonbeg this morning. Heavenly day for it. Lost about 6 balls. 2 on the reacheable par 4 6th got a watery grave. But I was just there for the walk and serenity really. Greens imcredibly slow and signature 14th wasn’t in play but great experience.

Morrisseys later for a chowder, pint of Guinness and steak to cap off a great weekend.

Moon ball?
