A very strange sculpture! ...But somehow very attractive-and appropriate!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 22nd July 2013 at 07:26
How unusual....how very clever...nice one Ron.....cheers!!!

Apt image for Wiagn councillors if the head of the club was more axe shaped.


Comment by pat on 22nd July 2013 at 13:19
Yes, I lkie it, different.


Comment by Skeets on 23rd July 2013 at 00:12
Nice one. And left handed.


Comment by John H on 23rd July 2013 at 18:38
Good shot Ron well framed. Well spotted


Comment by Art on 25th July 2013 at 01:18
Left arm across the face? I did that when I was right handed...
Not Phil Nicholson in disguise, are you?..;o)


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 27th July 2013 at 22:34
Get it right Art. `Lefty` who won the Open is Phil MICKELSON.


Comment by Art on 28th July 2013 at 00:56
Read the post ernie
skeets said left handed
I disagreed & said it was a right handed sculpture

How do you play, ambidextrous

Just been watching the seniors at Birkdale. It reminded me of '61 when I followed (it was allowed then) Arnold Palmer & Kel Nagle in "The Open" final.
2s 6d to park my motorbike & 5 bob on the course


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th July 2013 at 12:51
Art; read my post, you spelt his name wrong.
Yorkshire cricketer, Brian Close, could play golf both ways.
It`s 50 years ago since I watched another lefty, Bob Charles from New Zealand, win the Open in a 36 hole play off at Royal Lytham and St.Anne`s on a Saturday. No admission fee, just ten bob car park.
I`m looking forward to watching today`s final round of the Seniors Open, free on my laptop!


Comment by Art on 29th July 2013 at 01:00
It doesn't detract from the fact that the sculpture depicts a right handed player.(M&N are next door on my keyboard, hence "thick Finger")
BTW I played snooker ambidextrously, but don't bang on about it..;o)


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 29th July 2013 at 10:02
Art; The club is behind his head and he`s left-handed.
Not only did you get the M wrong but several others too.
Just watched Langer lose the play-off. He deserved to lose as he only needed to take 5 on the last, his 72nd, yesterday and took 6.
