Our thanks to those of you who have written to Aunt Lucy seeking advice. You can expect a reply from her either by e-mail or on her Agony page as soon as she gets back from her sudden-death victory in the Grandmothers' Goblets last week. (As her opponent was only buried in the Orkney Islands on Sunday afternoon, this may take a few more days.) Please bear with her.|
Meanwhile AnyoneForTee's greenkeepers, Martin and Clive, are doing their best to maintain the site and keep the links open. We will post here the letters and our replies which we think will most interest our readers, but we should issue an important Ryder... sorry, rider, from the outset.
While we will boldly go where no golf coach has gone before to provide enterprising and helpful replies to your golfing questions and dilemmas, the fact that we are both Duffers will restrict the value of any technical advice dispensed. For example, Clive called out "Hooked it!" and Martin "Fore right!" as Masters winner Mike Weir hit his second to the 18th in the final round. The ball, you will recall, landed in the middle of the green...
After speaking to our insurers, AnyoneForTee is therefore issuing the following health warning on all its golf tips:
"This golf tip could seriously damage your swing. Do not use while driving. Or with your long irons. And if your short game stinks, well... [see our story on the Drambuie World Ice Golf Championship]".
We will of course do our best to point you in the direction of some good instructional websites. In the Duffers Golf Club we shall also be asking members to share with us the tips and swing thoughts which have helped them cure such typically Dufferish ailments as the putting yips and the chipping zips.
But in all honesty we would strongly urge those of you seeking serious technical help with your game to consult your nearest club or teaching professional.
So please, you - and the golfing world - have been warned.
