    Thoughts on Hogan PTx?

    Have a look at the official review. https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/16384-official-forum-member-review-ben-hogan-golf-ptx-iron-review/?tab=comments#comment-216572

    How'd you play?

    Played my first round with my new Mizuno MP18 MMCs and Hogan TK wedges. Hadn’t been able to play for 3 weeks due to work and an unfortunate bout of gastroenteritis. Really solid to start, 1 over after 8, greens were slow after a minor tining but rolled ok. Very happy with the new irons, other than a couple of very poor swings they’re very forgiving and I love the ball flight. Ended up playing to my 9 handicap with a couple of very soft doubles after leaving it in the bunker Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Deciding To Play In A Charity Golf Tournament

    The last charity day I played in was very different to any other I've been involved in. Basically it was a 1/2 price round at a course rated in Australia's top 20, that is usually difficult to get on. All proceeds went to the local primary school, no prizes, no competitions. I played with a mate who is the principal of the school, and they decided to just make it a fun day. We certainly had fun, our group played a 2 man scramble against the other pair for bragging rights, with one regular golfer on each pair. The previous charity day I played in was huge. A mate rang me the day prior to see if I could play. It ticked just about every box, it was free (paid for by a company that did business with the company my mate worked for), it was at a top course (Metropolitan, host of the recent World Cup of Golf) it was for a good cause, and it was all laid on, food, drink all day. I've got no idea how much it would have cost if I was paying myself, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't afford it. Needless to say, I rearranged the roster at work and gave myself the day off. The prizes were extravagant, but we weren't too concerned about them, which was good as we finished well down the list.

    What ya drinking tonight?

    Had some close friends over who couldn’t make my 50th celebrations. Broke out a couple of aged reds. Wynns John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 1998, Seppelt Great Western Reserve Shiraz 1998. Both stunning with more time ahead of them. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Happy thread

    Victorian through and through. If I was from NSW I would potentially wear atrocious hats similar to those that adorn @MattF

    How about Tangambalanga, Yackandandah,Wangaratta and Wodonga. They all sound normal to me as I grew up in one of them, and the others were all nearby.

    She's most interested in Monash University, in Melbourne, but also looking at University of Melbourne.

    What/How did you practice today?

    Took the new Mizuno irons out on course for 9 holes yesterday. Hit iron off every tee except 2 longest holes. Trying to get a feel for real world distance. Happily they seem about 1/2 to 1 club longer for me. Results from less than perfect swings are better than I'm used to which certainly puts a smile on my face. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Happy thread

    My oldest daughter graduated from high school last week. Very proud of her. You know she's turned out ok when people you've never met come up to you and tell you how she's had a positive impact on them. Hoping her exam results are what she's looking for, and she continues to grow as a person. Also hoping we can get a few rounds in over summer before she goes off to university.

    Boasting Thread

    Built myself an ugly drum smoker last week. Cooked up 30lbs of pork butt. And my first brisket. Fed 40 people, and at least 30 went back for more. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Peaksy Got a Brand New Bag

    At my iron fitting I hit the Mizuno ST180, which I had previously hit at a demo day. My fitter on the day was our club pro who knows my swing pretty well told me not to bother as I hit the old Nickent better. I'm not sure how much of my love for the Nickent and old TM fairways is due to familiarity, and how much is due to the Grafalloy Epics being a perfect fit for my swing. I'd love to try modern heads with these shafts to see how things went.
  12. Here's what I ended up with.

    Peaksy Got a Brand New Bag

    Just coming into summer here! Of course when I took them out for a run, it started raining, then thunder so I bailed out after 2 holes

    Has MGS been reformatted?

    I'm really liking the reorganisation of things so far. It certainly makes navigating around the forum much easier. Great job so far Stud, I imagine you've got more in store for us.

    Peaksy Got a Brand New Bag

    Originally I was leaning strongly towards the JPX 900 Tours, but they finished up just before I was ready to buy. Didn't love the 919's, but these MMC's got me excited from the first swing. Taking them out out for a run this morning.
