    Now now boys - Steve can be a bit sensitive about age :p Y'all raised a good point about age though. I've always believed it to be 50, and yes, the HFTA raised the bar by 10 years. Maybe Hungarians don't suffer the way we do with stiff joints and such. Stayed in a renown spa town in Hungary during the 201 World's but never got a sniff of a good soaking - too busy with the Goulash and local brew :p I'd really like to help, but I give up trying to raise anyone in the WFTF anymore. Seems like all of the NGB reps have been bopped off - except me :D:D:D BTW - Shot with Dave Harrison in Poland 2006 - pure gent is Dave ;)

    Hi Andy it is a bit toss though if the rules are going to change at every venue it could become quite easy to try and manipulate the rules to suit the home team just imagine if we set a course in the UK three months before the worlds then let all our guys practice on the courses for the three months.Mr P

    1) OK Rob ;) 2) Mr.P - Once the WFTF comes out of hibernation, we'll bring it up 3) Greg - I though that when Americans reached 50, they move to a condo in Miami - or am I misinformed ? ;)

    Where I live its been -12 to -18 C for the last few days. A condo anywhere sounds pretty good! :)

    P.S. Our local football team (Green Bay Packers) plays the Chicago Bears in Chicago today. It could get up to -11 for the game!
