  1. My golf game sucks anyways so the rules probably wouldn’t effect my game any. But I would have played, life is to short

    1. lol Tim… the whole situation is so difficult to imagine but after while-ya. Figure you could be in your own bed getting bombed-might as well take your chance on the golf course.

  2. Hey Kris,
    Thank you so much for that amazing little tid-bit of history. Surprisingly I’ve thought of ” The Battle of Britian” so much over the years. I am a golfer. I love the game. I spent a year and a half in the UK. I completely love the Brits. I can see an older Gentileman on the course, standing beside a tree for cover, re packing his pipe as he looks up at the planes, wondering how long the delay. I believe I would do the same. Their courage and idealism defines them. I’d love to think my character is as strong as theirs. I appreciate you so much. I miss seeing you so much from years past. It’s so nice to see your post. Extremely interesting, and so professional. I hope to see more. Take care.
    Steve

  3. Great post, Kris. You can’t help but admire the tenacity of the British during a crisis. Their ability to maintain their “stiff upper lip” was on of their strengths during the war. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Kris, I’m not much on golf but my Dad drove a tank in WWll, so using his tank as my cart I would have probably played through.

  5. This is hilarious and very scary at the same time. I can’t help but think the words “Bloody Hell” were being uttered at some point. Cheers.

  6. Wow, now that was an interesting tid-bit of history. I can almost image a bunch older gentlemen in a smoke filled lounge around a fireplace smoking cigars and sipping on bourbon saying “To hell with the Krauts!, golf must be played!” as others raise their glasses adding “here, here!” It just supports the character of people back then, imagine if they tried that today? Oh boy social media and Uncle Sam would be all up in arms stating that we must stay home and hide in our rooms…. Times have changed. I know a few years ago, I would be out playing abiding by the updated seven rules, but I’m not so sure about today, too old and too fat to be moving shrap metal :)……
