    This from Scottish Golf. Remember itís your net differential multiplied by 113 divided by the course slope rating. You might also only be playing of 95% of your playing handicap too. I donít fully understand the 95% bit but yesterday my playing handicap was less than stated on course board and Scottish Golf app. Iíve given up trying to understand why but was a shot more net than I thought because of it.
    Must be the 95% thing then. Can't see anything else otherwise.

    Probably not worth bothering about, I'll just let the system do its thing.

    I currently have a scotty futura X putter, would anyone recommend moving to a lighter putter? Struggling to weight putts right with it

    38 points today, quite windy and a little bit of rain. This new putter is worth twice what i paid, putted in from the edge of the green twice, 20 foot and 25 foot, both for birdies and 8 points.

    Played my brother on Monday. Tucked him away scoring 41 points. Best I've played in ages. Today I get a card in my hand and I'm hopeless again. 30 points. Hate this game

    Ended up at Kingussie yesterday. Fabulous views all round. Enjoyed it. After a couple of double bogeys to start managed to get it round in net level par. Iíd go back there again. Very enjoyable.

    I've been planning a new putter for a wee while and sorted it with our pro today after my round. After hitting a few with my old putter he immediately fixed 2 faults! I tried a few new blades including the TM Spider. I had noted what you said Blackpool about the club so focused in on it.

    I bought the Spider S. The pro said that this one was more suited to my stroke than the EX.

    So thanks Blackpool. If it proves as good as it appears to be then if our paths ever cross in a .net outing I am due you a pint or six 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

    It certainly has improved my putting, i'd guess it is saving me 3 or 4 shots a round.

    My recent points have been between 29 (boo!) And 34 so 4 shots better per round would be great 🏌👍

    Rubbish. Played the Castle Course at St Andrewís. Must have lost about 7 balls to savage rough and 3 off the cliff at 17 :/

    What a course Royal Lytham is, if you don't like a bunker then don't ever go near that place. It's long, the rough is very difficult, but the greens were nice and not overly quick.

    I was over the moon to hit 32 points off 8, especially for my first time.

    Pretty sure i'd do a better next time, as i was hitting quite a few blind shots not really knowing there was a huge bunker waiting for my ball more often than not.

    I'm not sure i'd pay the membership fee's to be a member, even though i'm pretty sure they wouldn't let someone like me join in the first place.
