So how does it all work when we get to the course? Steve Carroll and Dan Murphy discuss their experience

We had all been building up to the date – November 2 and the launch of the new World Handicap System – and it turned into a bit of a damp squib.

Not only were there obvious teething troubles but, in England at least, we were locked back in before most of us even got out to put the global order to the test.

Our forced absence from the course comes to an end on Wednesday when we’ll finally have to get to grips with terms like course handicap and general play scores.

So, if you didn’t manage to see what all the fuss was about last month, what should you expect?

Dan Murphy and I managed to get in one round – on D-Day as it happens – and we wrote about how it all went down.

But, given we’ve spent so much time swinging in our back yards since, we’ve put down our thoughts in a Vodcast – and discussed how it went, what still confuses us and how it might develop over the next few months.
