"Rome was not built in one day"
  —John Heywood

Rome was not built in a day and neither can one play a good game of golf in a some cases even after some years! We have an article by Dr Alan Teh on PDA (pdf format or html) basics for doctors in this issue, I thought I will touch on something more closer to the heart of some doctors. Not PDA but something to do with PGA....yup, Golf!

Before I suggest some golf links for the diehards out there is some sound advice for male golfers.

Good Advice

Very good. Flush the urinal, go outside and tee off.


A fairly comprehensive web site. They are also the editors of the golf magazine. Don't miss the golfonline for beginners guide. Check out the Golf Course Online, it has comprehensive information on more than 20,000 courses worldwide.

e.g Player Plays From Wrong Tee Box

SITUATION: Players play from the white markers on the sixth tee when they should have played from the blue markers.

SOLUTION: STROKE PLAY--both players receive a two-stroke penalty and must correct their error by playing from the correct teeing ground. If the error is not corrected before the player plays a ball from the next teeing ground, or in the case of the last hole of the round, leaves the putting green without first declaring his intent to correct his error would result in disqualification.
MATCH PLAY--an opponent may immediately require the player to cancel the stroke and play from the correct teeing ground. However, in the above situation, if the players agreed to play from the wrong markers would result in disqualification for agreeing to waive the rules.

You have an opportunity to test your knowledge of the game here. They also have a great golf directory.
