Snow golf! Been there, done that!!!

Snow Golf…is it even possible???

Last year, one of my golfing crew and I braved a slight dusting to play a round of snow golf at the Cray Valley course at the Orpington Golf Centre. Midway through the round, a mild snow storm rolled in and amidst the frozen greens, limited visibility and basically freezing our ar$es off, we swore we would never do this again…

So it wasn’t much of a surprise when the same golfing partner messaged me prior to our early Sunday round to suggest that we cancel because of snow. Partly due to short term memory and partly due to there not being a snowflake in site at my end of London, I insisted he “man the f&*K up” and meet me at the first tee…Unfortunately, the site that met me as I pulled into my golf club was completely unexpected – a fully snow covered golf course!!! Fortunately, my playing partners were real sports and as the course was (miraculously) open, we decided to brave 9 holes. Snow golf was lots of fun and a good laugh but not something I would recommend on a regular basis. Amazingly, I only lost two golf balls over the 9 holes…

A few tips if you do end up playing a round of golf in the snow:

  1. Dress warmly!
  2. Try to keep the ball in the fairway (duh)
  3. When looking for a ball, look for a trail the ball would have left when landing
  4. You cannot use a snowball as a tee!
  5. A round of golf is unusual, so be brave (and weird) and try lots of unusual shots – a flop shot from snow is lots of fun!
  6. Don’t try playing for a score, enjoy the snow šŸ™‚

London Cyclists are annoying, that is all.

London Cyclists – mainly a bunch of annoying f**kers!!!

I occasionally cycle, I also drive and ride a moped so I’m not prejudice in any way butĀ without generalising too much, cyclists in London are a bit of a scourge. The vast majority don’t know how to properly use the road which I suspect is because they only cycle and don’t drive so they haven’t done any of the training and testing required to obtain a drivers license. Then there are the lycra clad knob-heads who, in their minds, believe they’re riding in the Tour de France Ā – they’re the worst of the bunch or pack orĀ peloton (or whatever the term is for a bunch of those lyrca wearing idiots)

While the frothing lunatic in this video seems like he does have mental issues (and he drives a Landrover Discovery so you know he’s a knob-head), the cyclist is a knob-head in equal parts – initially when he assumes the dude in the Landrover is going to drive off and isn’t a psychopath, he’s very much a “hard man” screaming and swearing but then becomes a blubbering pansy when the balding psycho starts going mental

Both are idiots, but given there’s a cycle path and the dude is decked out in yellow lycra, the cyclist is the bigger idiot!
