I am not doubting jas and believe him that the guy handed in a score for 51 points. I am just astonished by 51 points, as I said this is a score that I have never seen before. This is more about acknowledging the rarity of this event.

We are talking rarer than a hole in one, this guy has shot a nett score that only a handful people will ever have shot.

It just seems like others on here are not as blown away by a 20 handicapper shooting +5 as I am.
As a junior in the early 80s, I shot a nett 56 (a +4 or 5 round I think) and a 58 in the same Summer. I didn't cheat, but I did get cut a lot that year.

Thanks Roller, but it didn't. Only 30 points.But I think I still top the list of the Old Codgers best 6 qualifying rounds. Improved by 1 point. Lead by 1 point.

Thomas Cook was pretty much the chav airline. More for the all inclusive types and not your sophisticated travellers.

What would you know about sophistication Mac? You buy your clubs and balls from jumble sales, you live in a tenement, you ride a bus, you play at a muni, you've got a crap job. Need I go on?

What do you mean anyway Mac, are you talking about the kind of people that book their flights and car hire separately and go for a private villa like mine and spend their week driving around exploring local culture?

Yes, if you arrived via Thomas Cook. But at least you are aiming to be upwardly mobile on the class ladder.

Funny you should say that as my October half term guests had booked their flights via Thomas Cook so they won’t be arriving at all now. Alternative flight prices were through the roof, but never mind the TC executives still got their bonus eh?

Also I have no desire to keep it long term, it’s a bit of a millstone and a drain to be fair

Are you trying to tell us that if you take a package holiday then you are a chav? I don't believe you've never been on a package holiday.
I thought you were a class warrior who didn't distinguish between chav and any other class?

Given the posting persona I’d suggest holidays involve hiking/cycling, tent on back to a field somewhere outside North Berwick.

I thought it might be a charabanc to Blackpool for donkey rides, 60 woodbines a day on a deckchair in rolled up trousers and nightly promenades for the wonderful illuminations.

That's weird because I wouldn't camp or hike if you paid me never mind go on holiday to do it.

It’ll be an interesting learning experience for mac to see how the self-proclaimed epicentre of humanism has turned into a crime infested ratnest. Try Malmo or the Stockholm suburbs.

Hilariously they flew a crew over to sail the boat made from oil products back to where it sailed from and flew back her parents too. Rank hypocrisy of the highest order.

I think she's still scowling,  talking nonsense and being a spoiled brat in South America somewhere, presumably she went from New York to South America on the back of a donkey.

Apparently she's been nominated for a Nobel Prize. Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

If Greta was a hypocrite would it make the argument that co2 levels need reduced invalid?

Luckily she's Swedish. I think that saved the world from seeing her getting the Nobel Peace Prize.

She IS a hypocrite Mac, and if you'd ever followed the discussion about planks like Greta and the extinction rebellion rent a mob of ne'er do wells it is the inconsistency in their argument, selective targets, hypocrisy, absurdly unattainable demands and baseless alarmist claims about an impending end to the world and preposterous assertions that they come out with.
This is separate from the claims that we should reduce our carbon dioxide output, which is obvious.

Super

Do you favor bigger co2 emissions reductions now and lower co2 removal in the future or limited co2 emissions reductions now and massive co2 removal in the future?

Because all Greta is arguing for is the first option above.

That is not all she is arguing for at all.
A massive reduction of CO2 in the near future is simply not attainable. The demand for energy is growing at a massive rate and shows no sign of stopping, coincidently the level of renewable energy in terms of a % of energy produced has remained pretty stable in the UK.
Morons like Greta need to accept that the transition to a low CO2 climate/environment/economy is going to be slow and gradual.

Her shrieking, scowling, self indulgent speeches with calamitous language and poorly inforned and selective rhetoric do not help her argument.
She's made her point, now can she please piss off.

How much "winter" golf do you people play? I always think about keeping things going after the summer season but already I haven't touched a club since the end of September.

Depends on the weather Mac, had plenty winter seasons where 10 weeks in a row were off due to frost, (St Andrews are over cautious) but then again have had sleeveless days in February.

I stop playing medals when the white Tees come in (next week) I make 2 exceptions (Captains end of year invitational and the Turkey shoot), no more until the Captains Farewell Cup in late March, I’ll play bounce rounds and maybe the odd outing but there’s a much higher focus on range work over the winter.

The Seniors at my club still play competitions every Monday. There is a schedule there till Xmas, but with only 2 qualifying stablefords left in the season. All other Monday comps are team games. Weather permitting I will try and play 2 other times in the week, as per summer. Greenstaff have this week put in rope fences to "guide" us around the course to protect it as much as possible. Like sticking to cart paths on other courses.
