I stand corrected by your great knowledge of the sport.

 

Oh come on Si, you know there's a difference between a flat 12yder and a 45 yarder stuck 15ft up a tree.

Very true, I try and quieten the devil on one shoulder cackling about the forthcoming miss and listen to the angel on the other shoulder giving encouragement but somehow you always tend to make it through...:rolleyes:

Especially those pesky 20 yarders that you can bang down all day long but come a competition you just split the damn thing...:rolleyes:

I always struggle with downhill standers, something I rarely get to practice.

Stuart Hancox, one of the best standing shots ever

 

Tawd vale Gp, 10 yards!

I have seen enough "top" AA grade shooters mss sub 15 y standers to know, its worth every bit as many points as the 45 and can easily be missed

I don't disagree with the sentiment Si, a lot of people don't respect the sub 20yder and it's a classic course setters trick. I've seen Neil Hague lose twice in shoot-offs by not dialling for the long one - classic trick that still works.

It's the uphill ones that are the killers, downhill you have a fighting chance in my book...:grin:
