  1. Matt, Perth Australia I'm right-handed First choice - Driving iron 18* - KBS Tour V-X-Stiff My back-up choice would be the hybrid in an x-stiff shaft. Handicap is 7.7 I'm currently playing a 3 hybrid, but have been wanting to try out a long iron.
  2. Good luck to all entering this testing opportunity! I would've loved to have had the chance to enter.
  3. Sorry that I'm a bit late to the party, but I used to live in Brisbane and was a member at Nudgee Golf Club for a year or so. Reasonable course near the airport which I think would've been in your price range (~$1500/year I think). However, due to it being very close to a big creek and only a few kilometres from the ocean, it does get very wet very easily. If you ever get the chance to come to Perth in Western Australia, let me know and I'll try and organise a game.
  4. Thanks for the birthday wishes! Hope you're enjoying golf post lockdown - depending on where you live.
  5. Yeah, it was a nice, hot Australia Day (the designated public holiday) in Perth, with a top temperature of 38 degrees (100.4 Fahreneheit). Whilst we didn't have the big bushfires over here in Western Australia, we did cop a big cyclone (hurricane) which subsequently flooded the mine site I work at.

    Your ball?

    I've been using a combination of Pro V1X (both white and yellow - liking the yellow!), Srixon z-star XV and Taylormade TP5. Out of all of them, I prefer the yellow Pro V1X - interesting but likeable feel, very easy to spot in the air (but not always easy to spot when surrounded by leaves!), and it great spin and roll around the greens.
  7. Congrats on the new driver! I had a similar fitting the other day at my local golf store. I recently won AU$350 in a year-long tipping comp (came 4th), and had some other vouchers so I took the opportunity. I went into the fitting thinking I'd walk out with an Epic Flash Sub Zero being the Callaway fanboy I am. I was a bit disappointed with the Epic Flash when compared with the Cobra F9 and Taylormade M5. In the end it came down to the M5 and F9, with the F9 beating the M5 on accuracy. Difference in distance was 1-2yd for the M5, so not much in it. I eventually settled on the Co
  8. Matt - Perth, Australia I'm still using the Shot Scope V2 watch that I tested last year. I also use the FunGolf app as well - holds up pretty well considering its been on my phone for a few years now.
  9. I'll vote for Nunfao. Aussies and Kiwis usually stick together when the world's against them. Unless it involves cricket, rugby (both forms), netball, hockey and soccer (womens not mens' because the female teams are MUCH better than the male teams!).
  10. I'm SO looking forward to hitting this driver!! Loved the G400 LST, and was smoking the G410 - albeit with a little bit too much spin, so this could be the club for me! Either that or get fitted for the Epic Flash SZ.
  11. I've enjoyed my time with the Shot Scope watch over the past year. Currently it's the only GPS I've got right now - my actual GPS unit isn't working properly, not sure why. On a sidenote, my Shot Scope watch doesn't tell time correctly - usually about 15-30 minutes slow.
  12. I just got myself a new Callaway MD4 lob wedge to replace my fading MD2. Cannot wait to give it a go around the greens!
  13. I'm glad that you've enjoyed using your SLDR for as long as you have Plaid. If you do pick the Exotics driver, hopefully it'll last just as long in your bag. I've hit the EXS driver a few times at a golf store nearby but they don't tend to have many in stock and they are the only place in Australia that actively has them which is a great shame.
  14. It's difficult to get into both of these clubs. Unfortunately, I live in Perth on the other side of the country. I've got a friend in Sydney who recommends Twin Creeks GC (hosts the NSW Open, but is private club), and look at ISeekGolf for other recommendations, as well as the Australian golf Facebook forums.
  15. My mate has a Mizuno putter (not sure what model though), which he loves. I've tried it out a few times, and it felt fantastic albeit a little firm.
  16. Ball was in thick rough under a tree on a par 5, about 230yd from pin. Gripped down on a 3 wood with 3/4 swing - put the ball to 8ft, sunk the putt.
  17. I just went to try out the ST-190 driver against the Callaway Rogue Sub Zero on the launch monitor after not swinging a club for a week. Rogue came back with a swing speed of 108mph, 233m carry and little pulls (shaft wasn't really working for me). The Mizuno came back with SS of 114mph (average), 238m carry and very straight (and I could hit little cuts and fades with it!!!). As soon as the ST190 comes down in price, I will be getting one!!
  18. Pretty sure Srixon would've been in a similar situation before Ryan won.
  19. I'm pretty sure that Ryan Fox has the new Srixon driver in the bag when he won the ISPS Perth Super 6 event recently.
  20. I agree with you there NewBall. Srixon (and Mizuno as well!) drivers from 5 years ago would've been an underdog, but thanks to the Most Wanted testing process I don't think that's the case anymore. I think that the 2 real dog drivers currently on the market are both AUS$400-450 and they're both from manufacturers you wouldn't necessarily think of as Driver manufacturers - Tour Edge Exotics and Wilson Staff. In the case of the Exotics EXS, the numbers it produced in testing were not far off the leaders and considering it's about 2/3 the price of an Epic Flash then it's difficult to ju
