Keeping the Score: Anyone For Tee's revolutionary new golf scoring system for the handicap player.
The golfer's feathered friends - and flying foes: we have every score covered. If you've ever had a 'Roc' ( 13 over par on one hole),take heart! So has former Masters Champion Ian Woosnam.
Somewhere to play that's not expensive and overcrowded? Where no handicap certificate is required and we will not be made to feel an idiot with our Duffer's game? We have it...
Even the best of us have bad spells - Rory McIlroy for instance. But is he letting his game get him down? Not in the least, but then he has several million reasons to stay chipper.

Join in The Great Bogey Debate

Bogey or Bacall? Golfing world to decide - London, October 15, 2013

The Beauty ? Or the Beast ?

The instigators of a fundamental shake-up of golf's scoring system (see our lead story: "That was no triple bogey, you just shot a grouse!") are preparing to take an even more radical step, we can reveal.

The stage two proposal involves a change to the term 'bogey' for one over par. Describing the term as "unfortunate" for a score that represents a considerable achievement for the majority of golfers, AnyoneForTee has decided to press for a change to the name.

"For most of us, a bogey is a thing of beauty," said a spokesman.

"When a professional scores well, he gets rewarded with something pleasant from nature, like a birdie, eagle or albatross. All we get is sn.. - I beg your pardon, mucus. S'not right.., not right at all..."

Worried that a name change might be a step too far for the notoriously conservative golf community, Anyone For Tee is testing opinion by holding the world's first-ever serious golf opinion poll.

They have come up with what they believe is a fitting - and more attractive - alternative to bogey.

"It's simple," the spokesman said. "Besides being, well, you know what, Bogey also conjures up images of that great movie star, Humphrey Bogart who, by the way, was no mean golfer.

"But whereas Bogie was hardly known for his looks, his most famous co-star (and one-time wife), Lauren Bacall, was one of the great beauties of our time."

"Bacall is quite simply the perfect association with what to many of us is an excellent score. So it's a simple choice, Bogey or Bacall? This is golf democracy in action."

You can be a part of that golf democracy.
