Weird! Who in their right mind would continue to play their game after a bomb went off on the course?!

I'm not sure I believe it's real and it if was, it was probably a joke even then.
Then again, golfers tend to be pretty damn serious.

It probably was real. The "Keep Calm and Carry On" mentality was part of the British culture during the war, from what I've read.

Brits, of course ;) We're not changing our plans because of any damned Nazis!
(sadly this mentality is on the way out, as people today won't even walk to the shops if it's raining)

Number 7 seems harsh. A one stroke penalty? They were tough back in the Blitz weren't they?

Brits don't continue to play golf during WWII Steve.. Maybe rich assholes, who happened-to-be British did.
