Have enjoyed watching the golf the last few times it's been on. I too only started watching it because of the amount of time I spent playing Tiger Woods on the gamecube. Cracking game!

There is something curiously contradictory about that whole statement.....

Yes and that's whats curious, you find the sport 'boring and shit' but can happily play it on a games console. The real thing is far more difficult and challenging.

Just out of interest, have you ever actually played the game?

What, Tiger Woods on a console or proper golf? Yes to both anyway. Play golf every week, member at Stonehaven. I'm shite like, but ah well....

I've had someone's golf clubs sitting in my cupboard for over a year now.

Since I'm moving away in August, if they haven't picked them up they'll be getting flogged on here!

I can guarentee you're not as shite as me!

what like is Stonehaven? Never played it - usually just play Hazelhead or the courses back home (Buckpool / Strathlene).

Tiger Woods on the Playstation is great but it's nothign like the real thing.

I can't play for toffee, but popping to the driving range and pinging a few drives off is ace fun, a fun night out for only about 4 quid...you might be supprised at how easy / hard driving is...I can melt some a fair distance, but accuracy ?.... nope!

Stonehaven is a good course. One of the "must play" courses in Scotland - sloping fairways, gully holes, and a some great cliff top views:up:

People slag it off and while it may not be as lush as some courses, but it definitely makes you learn how to play varying shots, upslope, downslope, ball above feet, ball below feet, etc. It's tricky but it's where I stay so meh - i'm not into the idea of travelling miles for a game. I made it round in 90 once, which with no handicap is not too bad, around par. Have never come close again though....I play at Hazlehead on a monthly work outing, it's OK, in fact next outing is next Wednesday....
