Introduce yourselves

Post by drive4show on Fri Dec 09, 2011 5:51 am

First topic message reminder :

Hi everyone

Looks like we are attracting a mixture of older 606/606v2 members that all know each other and a few newer guys too.

We would like this to be a welcoming site where everyone can feel comfortable and interact sensibly and enjoyably so please use this site to introduce yourself.

I'll start for those that don't already know me........

Long time golfer and 'all things golf' addict. Play off 5 at a course down in Dorset. I'm easy going, approachable and don't hold grudges if anyone winds me up the wrong way on here. I've played a huge number of courses so always happy to try to advise on that subject if anyone needs any advice or pointers. Also a bit of an equipment junkie so please feel free to ask me stuff on that subject too, I'll always do my best to help out.

So, that's me....who's next?

OK - about me.

Live in south-east London, age 60 (ouch) and played off 20 until had to stop playing golf last year when I had two hip replacement operations. Am now gradually getting back to fitness (have just shed a stone - a few more to go) and am looking forward to playing again next year. Currently don't belong to a club but have been ladies secretary, lady captain and competition secretary of two different clubs (one in Bournemouth where I lived before meeting and marrying LordPutt - who is a retired greenkeeper).

Other sports: keen on rugby union, motorsport (LordPutt sprints his Subaru Impreza!) and cricket.
Other interests: theatre, food & wine (good stuff), gardening and singing - I belong to an amateur operatic society!
Work: as a bit of one-upmanship to a certain Admin on the dark side (you know, the insurance chappie who collects the coffee) I am the Administrator and Company Secretary of a charity based in Covent Garden where we exist to preserve the architecture and heritage of the area - so there!

I'm pretty relaxed about most things - apart from being treated like a child by certain Admin people and injustices of all kinds. Don't mind a bit of swearing (been know to throw a few myself) and enjoy good company (ask D4S and LJ).

So that's me (and I'm even happy to see Keizo here sunny )

Not sure of how popular an addition I'll be, given most people tend to disagree with me on most things, but here I am, reporting for duty.

Greetings all, I am John, 45 years young and have been playing on and off for 35 years, I am Irish but now Living in CT, USA. My Handicap is my slice (officially 17.1) but am playing very little these days. Golfing claim to fame:- Beating Padraig Harrington in a match play comp, I was about 28 years ago (He has just turned 40)…. I also played with Paul McGinley when he was 18.. He was a very good ball striker back then but he was still playing off 7 if I remember rightly, obviously he improved a lot after that and went on to have a very nice career on tour. Broken 80 only once in my life a 78 in Stackstown when I was a kid. Best since then is an 81.

Ok Folks,

Name: Yadsendew.

Great to see some of the old 606 plonkers on here.....especially the uncontroversial LJ.

Handicap: 11.1
Famous for:nothing - Reputation for never rushing in other words I'm always late.

Likes other than golf: Monty Python type comedy generally having a bit of a laugh - life's too short for worrying. Only got to the position that I am in life by virtue of my sheer and persistent incompetence. But then again if it wasn't for my modesty I'd be perfect.

I see where you're going with the undergarments but I reckon she sleeps in the nip and as such I am ideally placed to get the sly one in there. tongue

s_r, no doubt 'they' are eavesdropping so I will just say this to 'them' ... not amused that my last post was censored. Completely childish action and certainly proves my point about them being heavy-handed. You can add a lack of humour to that as well.

Hi,
I am Dewsweeper and I am yet another 'grumpy' old man.
Was known as 'Victor' (Meldrew) at work.I retired from the Fire Service ( London Fire Brigade (14 years) and then Cheshire Fire Service (17 years) in 1993
Started golf in 1968 at Richmond Park.(jeez can it really be that long I have been trying to master this game)
Lowest HC 8 but now struggling off 15.Still playing 2 or 3 times a week social and comps.
I carry in winter but not in any weather, more than a hint of rain and it's a rush for the bar.Only carry 8 clubs.
Still drive okay and chip and put fairly well but fairway play a nightmare.
'Delboyl'
I am from Peckham originally and still have touch of 'Sarff London' in my speech despite moving to Cheshire in1977.
Are you from that area?
