The thread made interesting reading anyway.
Wish my neighbour had the internet I would loveto show him this forum.
We often play social golf but naturally there is the competitive edge of wanting to beat your playing partners. However on more than one occasion I've had to pull him up on certain "interpretations" of the rules, in particular the length of one club, my thinking being a golf club, his being the length of Old Trafford or Anfield !!
And please somebody tell me a polite way I can explain that a lost or OOB ball is not a one shot penalty from where you think the ball landed. Normally I can laugh off this kind of "naivety" (yes I am being polite), but now hes asked about coming on a society day with me and I am worried the other society members may think I interpret my scores the same way.
Rant over, sorry.
