Most embarrassing moment on the green - In the 1980’s before I knew anything about visual aids, I constantly had trouble trying to centre the Jack. This led to me taking a 20-year break from bowls through embarrassment until I was encouraged to try again using a monocular. Thankfully the game is more inclusive now.
