    Zmedal play is stable Ford so you would both have three points after two holes depending on h/c

    They have to suffer in medals so we do to love it. Give the people what they want Mark, seeing you and Lockey suffer. 🤣 Lockey is basically doing what we all do in a monthly medal scrambling like a trooper🔥🔥🐯

    I think people are too frightened of the word "links" when it comes to golf.
    In some ways Links courses are significantly easier than other types of course.
    First of all they tend to have very few trees, secondly they tend to have fairways which run adjacent to others, so no real punishment for wayward shots.
    Also, if you miss the green, you can often putt from a good distance off the green.
    Yes, the weather can be challenging, but in general I would say that Links courses are very straight forward, don't require a great deal of course management compared with a tight heathland course and because many are very old, they are easier to overcome with modern equipment, for example The Old Course at St. Andrews is a very easy course.

    I can’t get any of my friends to play match play. They feel as if they have a better chance of me blowing up on one hole than they would playing well enough to win a few more holes than me. But they usually lose lol

    I don't play too many medals as its too stressful. Could be the reason why so many of us play so defensively.

    Evening chaps. A long one but I hope you read it. I haven't swang a golf club since July. I played football for my village team and catastrophically shattered my Tibia and Fibula in my right leg. It's now close to Xmas and it's still not healing and I need another operation in January to hopefully coax it to heal. Every single evening I watch your content and when I'm bored during the day I'll go back and watch a funny vlog from years gone by. Cornwall pipe was today's. Matt's the same age as me Mark (isn't) 😂 you boys keep my chin up when it could so easily drop and stay very down. My goal, after my second operation in January is to get healed and actually play a round of golf once again. I'll be starting again basically as a new golfer so all your coaching content will surely help as it always has. Keep doing what you are doing. You guys are awesome. Much appreciated, from a long time huge fan (ex forces) Callum 👍

    Lockey's putt on the 1st was insane, brilliant fun with the both of you offering a way out of the game before even finishing the 1st 😂. Then Locks on the 2nd just a briĺliant well played par.?..cough?.
    Mark its a wonder you stayed brilliant course i remember you playing it with Rory, it looks even better now. Already looking forward to the next episode guys..thank you..

  • John Magnell

    I’m sorry. I’m going to be awful... Coach needs to work on his course management. Ex. On par threes. Use enough club, the same for approach shots. He seems to expect the “perfect “ hit every time. And pls: use a tee peg. It’s an advantage. Stop trying to hit your driver both ways. Choose a shape and stick with it. Always. Etc etc. Sorry, sorry I suspect I will be bawled at for trying to be an expert when I’m not. I suck at golf and I know it.

    Seems that missing the greens/shots on the right side is important here, and I didn't feel that much thought was going into that.

    Hey guys .. would be helpful (selfishly for me) to analyse and explain how Coach goes from a pull hook to hitting it straight right. I ask because it's my golf on a bad day :-). Not playing enough myself but trying to take the big left out of my game

    When people hit into you. Pick the ball up and pocket it. IF they ask if you picked up their ball? You answer I picked up A BALL but it can't be yours as it was right here by us and you would never hit a ball up here by us.

      Tyler Campbell I would 100% recommend getting lessons, doesn’t have to be loads just enough to get you going in the right direction. Try and find someone who can recommend you a good golf pro

    • Tyler Campbell
      Tyler Campbell Month ago

      @stephen pettitt appreciate it! I'm thinking about taking a gold lesson before I get going, assuming that I'm doing a good amount of things wrong with my swing, might try to get that down before I develop too many bad habits

    • stephen pettitt

      Tyler Campbell excellent I hope you enjoy it. Golfs a great game, there’s so many levels to it and you can find elation and misery at every level. All the best

      @stephen pettitt gotcha! Never heard it called that before! I just got my first set of clubs last months and looking forward to getting into golf, played a few times in high school, but that's about it

    • stephen pettitt

      Tyler Campbell it’s basically competition strokeplay (no gimmies) I guess the name comes from the fact that most golf clubs will run strokeplay competitions where the player with the lowest gross or net score over 18 holes receives a medal 🏅. It’s the same format they generally play every week on the pga tour. The fear factor with it is that you have to complete every hole regardless of how badly you play it so 1 bad hole could completely ruin your round and that could be the 1st, the 18th or any hole in between.
      Doesn’t sound so bad a format for pro’s to play but in this instance the conditions are tough and it’s a course they don’t know with very quick slopey greens, one or both of them could shoot a high score which would probably result in people in the comments questioning their pro status
