  1. The Aussie Rules Football team that I’ve followed all my life has won the Grand Final for the first time since 1964. I was born in 1968, so to say that I’m happy would be understating it by a factor of 1000. After starting well we were in trouble during the 3rd quarter. Totally dominated from there. So happy I was able to enjoy it and share it with my long suffering (putting up with my disappointment)family. 57FA2032-89DE-44D6-B232-5430CC268760.MOV 57FA2032-89DE-44D6-B232-5430CC268760.MOV
  2. It’s on the way! Not sure how long it will take to get here, but got notified this morning that it’s coming. I’ve gone with a 10.5 Head with a Project X Evenflow Riptide 6.0 60gm. I’ve had Evenflow Blue shafts in my fairways for a while now and really like how they match my swing. From what I’ve read the Riptide should suit me well too. Looking forward to putting in some range time to find my best loft/face angle/weight combinations to optimise my settings. My clubs range has Toptracer, so comparisons between settings should be easy to see. Very much looking forward to testing this driver.
  3. Block is 1 acre, vineyard is about 1/3 acre, hoping to take yield from 120 to about 220kg
  4. If you picked DJ you may need to consider getting me to write it for you, otherwise you’ll confuse him (possibly most of both teams)
  5. Thank you for missing that opportunity
  6. Planting some extra vines in my tiny backyard vineyard today. Just after I finished digging my last hole of 90, we were hit by a 5.9 Earthquake. Don’t think my digging caused it
  7. Wow, very excited and thankful to have been selected. Can’t wait for the process to begin.
  8. Any update on comments not displaying?
  9. Grand final is on 25th September (our time) so some time on the 24th for you. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to watch it and (hopefully)see Melbourne defeat the Western Bulldogs to win their first flag since 1964
  10. First round in 6 weeks after our lockdown was eased. No competition allowed so we played a 3 man skins. Golf was a bit of a mixed bag but it was great to get out on the course. Wind was blowing about 20mph and gusting around, greens were very slow. Hit a few big drives (for me) including one over 300 off the first (straight downwind) Irons we’re ok, misjudged the wind a couple of times and hit it through the green. Short game was not unexpectedly below average. Leftt a lot of putts short, really struggled getting the ball to the hole on the slow greens. Highlights were a couple of birdies after hitting it close and our 4th who I’d not met before also dressed for the occasion and celebrating the Australian Football team we both support making the AFL Grand Final (our Super Bowl equivalent) after a great win on Friday night.
  11. Not so much the zero policy for me, more the fact he butchered the vaccination roll out. Should have been 3 months ahead of where we are. Squandered the hard work it took to get to zero.
  12. I get to play this week after my states lockdown for regional areas finishes. Hopefully we can remain healthy and the rest of the state can reopen and get back to more normal life soon. @Firebird, hope you’re getting out on course this weekend too.
  13. @GolfSpy_APH @GolfSpy_THV Just posted another comment in the Sub70 driver thread. Last comment I could see was by Bens197, which was the last one when I commented on Saturday. After posting a comment, I could see about 10-15 new comments after Bens (not including my comment from Saturday. Now for the weird bit. When I went back to check Bens full name, his was the last visible comment again. I commented again and took a screenshot while in the thread and after leaving and going back into it to demonstrate.

  14. Not sure if this will show up, but I.m in. Despite not being sure if I’m a “better” player” this sounds like a very interesting driver. Pretty sure that Jason from Sub70 will be involved in the fitting process, which will make the test even more interesting for both testers and readers.
  15. I posted a comment yesterday and it hasn't shown up. It was around 10am Aus Eastern Time if that helps
  16. I’m in, not sure if I fit the better player profile though. The shaft options look great, and all I’ve heard about Sub 70 is that Jason really knows his stuff. Pretty sure he will be directly involved through the process which will be very cool.
  17. I was hoping it was a new hat. Apologies to @The Hat
  18. Great work team. I still use my PuttOut system from 2019 and it has really helped my putting. @Blueberry_Squishie , hopefully we’ll be able to get out on the course soon and you see an improvement in your putting. At least you’ve got something to help keep you occupied during our lockdown.
  19. Like @sirchunksalot I vote none of the above. Love the Brewster's Millions reference I joined nearly 5 1/2 years ago, and was fortunate to have been selected for a putter review when I had around 30 posts, and hadn't made any donations. My post rate is about 300/yr. I have probably applied for 5 or 6 reviews a year (probably less) All up I have done 3 reviews, which could probably be described as small (training device), medium (putter) and large (iron set). All of these entailed significant time and effort, but were certainly worth it. I'd like to think my work has benefited other golfers. In that time there have only been a handful (that I can recall) of testers not complete their reviews, one of which was in my first review. That's a pretty good strike rate for hundreds of testing opportunities, so obviously the "formula" for choosing reviewers works pretty well.
  20. To put my technical hat on, MRI wouldn't be much use, as it basically demonstrates water, which hopefully modern balls don't have much of.
  21. Did the images out of hours when no patients booked while on my break. It's at the site I manage and my manager has no problem with it. We're currently in lockdown, and our bookings are down as a result. Fortunately our area is doing ok at the moment. I found it almost therapeutic after dealing with the daily stress of dealing with pandemic response, especially making sure we have adequate supplies of PPE to keep my staff safe and healthy.
  22. No helium in CT’s, that’s MRI. CT is really just fancy x-ray. The impact of helium shortages on MRI could be catastrophic somewhere down the road.
  23. Now you've ruined it for me. I was hoping people would think I was incredibly committed to golf ball QA, not just going stir crazy. At this rate 4 dozen balls may well see out my playing career
