It being the festive season, could somebody please do me the enormous favour of just typing three clues onto trhe forum which I just cannot read on an incredibly bad copy that's been sent to me: I have no other way of even knowing what the questions are! They are:
41a, 28d & 52d.Word lengths for this last one not even legible: is it 3,3 ???
Don't know how I've remained sane trying to decipher the other 59, but nearly finished!

Molly and I differ on 52. On further checking, I think my version is correct!

Many thanks, both of you --- but then I think I must have 54a wrong: is it a French word ending in "s"? If so, would seem to make 52d with "T?S OFF" pretty impossible. Can't really see the beginning of 54a clue:maybe that would help too! 28d & 41a are now clear, naturally.Thank you for your patience: I've never been in this ridiculous situation before..............

Oh, so it was right up your street, chris, involving golf!
All finished now, I hope: don't think I'll ever torture myself again with a poorly scanned copy! Enough to drive you completely round the bend................

Funnily enough I struggled with that one GK, and had somehting else first (forget what) - kicked myself when I saw it, though.
