  1. No that's not me in the picture, thankully I'm younger and better looking than that! I don't even recognise that caddy, how long ago was the photo taken? Due to visa requirements and other complications I would only be able to caddy for a summer, but it would be full time in my time there. It's not a career, if that's what you're asking, by next summer I'll be a college graduate (fingers crossed). Cheers for the suggestions boys, I'll check those places out
  2. Hey guys. I'm thinking about heading to the East coast (preferably Boston) next summer to do some caddying and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for clubs with good caddie programmes to get into? I'm pretty experienced already, having done 5 seasons at Old Head in Ireland I'm just looking for a change of scenery. Any and all advice or information would be most appreciated!
  3. I'm working on it. Trouble is it was my buddy who put up the video so I don't have it myself. Any ideas on how to embed it guys?
  4. So, this is a pretty cool video right here. I was playing golf with my buddies a couple weeks ago, and one of the guys had bought a new camera with slo-mo capabilities (240 frames per second) so was recording my swing for funsies. Now it just so happens that the hole he decides to record my driver swing, the shaft snaps on it! Not sure how to embed the video, but here's a link to it up on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/video.php?v=1533047564727&ref=mf For your viewing pleasure ;) Also I know thats a really wide closed stance, and a ridiculously flat swing. For what it's wor
  5. I could see Woosie taking on the European team for 2010 as I certainly don't think Faldo will be offered the post again, Ollie and McGinley will harbour dreams of making the team one last time and I would see Darren Clarke taking the job in 2012 if Davis Love were the US captain due to their great friendship
  6. I prefer small heads on my clubs, the smaller the better once I get some semblance of forgiveness out of it being perfectly honest. I know I only play for fun and occasionally tournament golf, so I like to enjoy the clubs I play with, and feel comfortable looking at the club at address
  7. At one of my local courses there is a sign on the first tee saying "No mobile phones apart from medical personnel". IMO, this sends a better message to golfers than the bog-standard 'phones are strictly banned' rule, as it gives insight into the people who actually need phones with them, as opposed to the rest of us who merely want our phone
  8. I caddy at Old Head Golf Links, predominantly for Americans and make very good money. It's $75 a round for 1 bag, or $120 for double bag before tips, so single bag is usually $100 and double bag $160 which is very nice money while also having good fun making the guys enjoy their round
  9. Almost as hot a prospect as his little sister
  10. So how do you pronounce your name? (A work colleague of mine in Dublin has the same name, and I want to make sure I am pronouncing it properly.) If he's like the Colm's I know, the pronunciation would be Cull-um. Going back back to Paddy, the most irritating butchering to my ear is when the Americans say Pad-rag Hairengtin. In Ireland it is always said as Paw-drig
  11. That is one ugly Word not allowed bag for sure :russian_roulette:
  12. I just bought a pair of Crossfire Ecco's and it was the same, all my friends were slaggin me for buying 'old people' shoes, but I think they look really sharp, lot more stylish than Footjoy or anything bar Adidas IMO. Go for em, what does the wife know anyway :russian_roulette:

    Answer...

    I think it was more like 12 or 13 years old, a couple of the Asian players on the European Tour took the game up late, none of whom come to mind at the minute
  14. Coupleof things I would say, Harrington is certainly an average length hitter but from watching him for the past 5 years(when I got into golf) he is one of few that has the ability to absolutely belt one out there down the stretch. I distinctly remember the 12th at Winged Foot in 2006 which is a 650 yard par 5 that nobody had reached all week and suddenly good ol Paddy was hitting an iron into 15 feet. Also, a comment on his short game, in the build up to this year's Open there was an interview with our man where he went back over the pitch shot on 18 in normal play and to paraphrase him, h
