    This was a huge success dice. We should collaborate on a 2021/2022 new school year series of tweets. I'm also willing to adopt a persona of a weekend football coach if that better suits where you're at in life right now.

              What does "phased and staggered" basis mean?

                It means we actually don't have a clue but be grand like.

                  Was reading an article about the upcoming top gun sequel, and was shocked to discover that val kilmer lost his voice (to cancer) in 2014. Absolutely love the fact Tom cruise said that the sequel couldn't be made without him (and rightly so).

                              Paging AJ,

                              Why are Irish athletes so successful at the Paralympics?

                              All I'm hearing about is medals, in all sorts of sports.

                              What's going on there?

                                The most random thing in here is the Callaway PM grind. How often do you smack the ball in the forehead when using it? I got the 2 ball ten putter this year and it has legit been a game changer.

                                If you are consistently in play off the tee and not miles back then breaking 90 (even 80) is very achievable with some putting work.

                                My tee game is by far my weakest. I reckon it costs me 3 strokes min a round. Been shooting mid seventies lately, very consistently, with 2 birds a round but also 2 doubles.

                                I have the big queefy miss in the bag, the high right pooooooooof. Incredibly frustrating.
                                Funny you mention the PM grind, I had someone make a similar comment recently. Actually I ended up skulling one into a small tree at the weekend. Thankfully that stopped it short of a water hazard or going 100 yards OB! I do love them though. The 54 gets used more than any other wedge. The 58 is a cheat club for the bunker tbh - the big head, wide sole and bounce can clear the sand so well. I've actually holed out 3x times from the bunker this year. I never really hit a near a full 58, just chips, bunkers and open face for flops or fluffy rough. I really wanna try a new Scotty or Odyssey mallet but I do love my old 2ball so can't see the point in changing it just yet.

                                Distance isn't the problem for me tbh. Only one hole I regularly don't have a chance for GIR (more so bad tee shot but I'd have 200-220 in even with an ideal drive). I carry around 240-260 range for a stock drive. The 3 wood is about 220-230 and hybrid 205. My main problem is that I will top/slice/duck hook 2 tee shots per round. I have no idea if it's mental, concentration or fatigue. Genuinely I just feel it's normal amateur golf, especially at my level. Unfortunately, this often results in a reload. However, I consistently lose more shots fluting around inside 30 yards tbh. Putting in particular needs most work. I'm not too bad for chipping/pitching if I have a little practice before a round.

                                Mid seventies is serious scoring. You're not doing too much wrong lad. Out of curiosity have you ever bothered with lessons in last few years?

                                I just ordered 3x dozen SEED balls this evening as I ran out. The best bang for the buck out there. It's longer than ProV1/x and matches it spin wise. The good news is that it's half the price and an Irish company.

                                  Some of the Morcilla I've had would leave our black pudding in the ha'penny place.

                                  Presume it's like the salami as in getting the really good stuff is hard to do here.

                                  Must look into it properly

                                    Maybe GAB could do a Hiberno-Iberian crossover version and market it to all the top chefs.

                                    I'll only charge him a box of puddin' a month for this IP. There's plenty more where that came from.

                                      I do still.occasionally salivate when thinking of morcilla I had in some bar on the quays in Santander. The Spanish really do some amazing things with ham.

                                      I'm sure there must be some cultural reason linked to the reconquista too as surely it was haram under Moorish rule.

                                          On Iberian pork-love:

                                          When the victorious Moors swept through Spain from North Africa in 711 AD, they conquered a nation of pork-lovers. And, because religious dietary laws forbade the Moors, like the Jews, from eating pork, the pig became a symbol of political and religious resistance.
                                          During the ensuing seven centuries of sporadic warfare that led to the Moors’ final defeat and the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, the pig’s ritual slaughter and public consumption became an important demonstration of Christian faith--and, therefore, of an emerging Spanish identity, Castaner said in an interview.

                                          “This is when the pig began to assume a social identity,” she said, adding that to eat pork “was a means of affirming one’s Catholicism
                                          Mmmm. Historical deliciousness.

                                                Much like the BBV eh or twitter. . Most of TV political debate is nonsense especially on RTE . So it boils down to a battle of wits for viewing pleasure . . In this regard she tore one of our supposed top politicians who debate for a living a new hole. Now nostalgia aside she is a top journalist. And of course that accent.

                                                  That's just objectively wrong, she was a mediocre at best columnist in the c.5000 circulation Tribune and has been a presenter on shouty radio programmes.

                                                          Lol you could apply that to anything on TV . I'm sure most of my TV watching is poor ie sports, music documentaries, Netflix eg watching human nature atm however I've managed to avoid the Twitter cesspool in the main. Now that's a poor life decision. #teamsarah

                                                                        Taking the traditional Physio route , you'll have to do some rehab with stretching and strengthening or at worst an operation.

                                                                        Back to hippy witch doctor - most operations on this are unnecessary . Check yourself for any other injuries and discuss with your physio

                                                                        Rotator cuffs are tres annoying.

Think small 13 year old vs 16 year old giant man child. It hasn't been right since and is even more trouble now in my thirties. It's WAAY more flexible than the right side but it's prone to flaring up. The only thing that's helpful is rotation exercises with rubber bands. Even when I was relatively fit bench press, overhead press and pushups could cause a flare-up if I was overdoing it. Watch out for those exercises if you're doing them and make sure you have rows/pulls in your routine as they will help balance out the push movements. Recovery is definitely slow and all I can say is don't ever stop doing your rehab exercises. Warm up well before any of those push movements and don't overload.

Any extended period of restricted movement risks bringing on a frozen shoulder which comes with Collie's kidney stone level of pain.

Think small 13 year old vs 16 year old giant man child. It hasn't been right since and is even more trouble now in my thirties. It's WAAY more flexible than the right side but it's prone to flaring up. The only thing that's helpful is rotation exercises with rubber bands. Even when I was relatively fit bench press, overhead press and pushups could cause a flare-up if I was overdoing it. Watch out for those exercises if you're doing them and make sure you have rows/pulls in your routine as they will help balance out the push movements. Recovery is definitely slow and all I can say is don't ever stop doing your rehab exercises. Warm up well before any of those push movements and don't overload.
                                                                                                  yeah, I've been doing pushups and planks daily since March (until this thing hit about 4 weeks ago) so that would make sense.

                                                                                                  Bah.

I'm sure most of my TV watching is poor ie sports, music documentaries, Netflix eg watching human nature atm however I've managed to avoid the Twitter cesspool in the main. Now that's a poor life decision. #teamsarah
