I seem to remember hearing the term Double Eagle, so I'll go for that

Never heard that attributed to the Golden Bear, Benny. The Gary Player quote comes from an interview after a round where he successfully got himself out of a number of greenside bunkers & the interviewer referred to him having a bit of luck. The quote came as an excellent (not to mention somewhat terse) response.

OK, let's give non golf/sports fans some relief!

Not an April Fool at all, on April 1st this year, which city became the first in the UK to impose a levy on businesses who provide parking spaces for their employees?

I know Nottingham was considering this, so was it there?

Correct, it was Nottingham. Not sure what they're main aim is, but it seems an ample opportunity for the Law of Unintended Consequences to come into play.

Good grief! Returning to see what the latest question is, I see my previous post has "they're" instead of "their" - sorry about that, but maybe I could apply for a job at the Beeb. :lol:
