As its so cold over here at the mo, lots of daydreaming about next year. I thought it might be nice to have some different vintage experiences lined up for 2011 for the small, but perfectly formed, band of persimmon brothers who get together for a knock once in a while. So I managed to pick up a dozen Tour Balata 90 off ebay and thought that would make a fun day with the persimmon and blades at a nice old school course much like my own. Then I thought maybe get some 1.62 balls and go and play a nice links somewhere…that might be fun. Then maybe a Hickory Day Out down in Deal - http://www.hdweb.co.uk/hickory-days/ might be pricey but a real experience.
Anyone got any other ideas I can add to my bucket list?
Sounds like a decent plan brewing there!!
I’m keen to have a few days out and links is the way to go in my book.
Hunstanton and Royal West Norfolk anyone???
A hickory day would be fun… be nive to get the old hicks out again.
Good call Robbo, won’t make it for 2001 but maybe 2012. The Euro’s are coming…how about a ryder cup Europe (Captain Bom) vs USA (Captain Lag) deal with persimmon and blades or lets get ROW, captained by Bradley, in there as well for a 3 way battle
Does this ever sound like a good time! As long as Bradley doesn’t call in that ringer he was chatting to on the range this week, then it should be all fair and gentlemanly. Though a challenge is always good…
Great topic, Arnie…
Yep, ROW in. Beware the Steb, he played his first full round the other day with the Hogan Speed Slot persimmon and Slazenger Swingweight Plus 2 iron and shot a 2 over despite handicap blowing out from 8 to 12 lately. Boy is this game full of illusions (or one offs.)
Unfortunatley I am going to be relying on a Captains pick to make the team, and seeing as how I wore my trainers and jeans in front of the club house and tried to shag the Captains daughter, I think i am probably xxxxed.
