    Hi All,

    Long term reader, first post- New member to the forum from Sydney. Been playing golf for over 10 years, but now hoping to play more regularly and seriously with the aim of getting the handicap down towards single figures. Last handicap held was 14.

    Hi brakerider. Welcome to the forum, although it looks like you have been here for six months. Good luck with the journey to single figures.

    Welcome Brakeride, which side of Sydney you on and where do you play your golf?

    Don't do it.
    Golf is a lot easier off 14.

    p.s. Welcome aboard.

    Power steering, auto gearboxes and electric starter motors aren't real driving either.

    Thank you all! Hoping to get involved in some golf days around when I see them pop up too.

    Living in the Eastern Suburbs. Have been playing a few rounds at Eastlake, The Coast and Moore Park. Hopefully will find a more permanent home soon.

    Welcome brakerider. Watch out for the pro-shop, some will try to tell you that you can buy your way to single figures.
    Fighting the good fight!


    Golf is, in part, a game; but only in part. It is also in part a religion, a fever, a vice, a mirage, a frenzy, a fear, an abscess, a joy, a thrill, a pest, a disease, an uplift, a brooding, a melancholy, a dream of yesterday and a hope for tomorrow. - New York Tribune, 1916.

    Buying a pork roll (no chilli) for your marker is good preparation for even par rounds.
