  1. I'm in the market for new irons, and will be ordering a set of Hogan's or Callaway Apex 19's in the next couple of weeks. Being able to 'test' them beforehand would be amazing!! Josh Australia (outside of US & UK, in know, but please extend to Oz ) H'cap - 12 PTX Pro/Icon combo TaylorMade TP CB's
  2. Love this! Think i'll put a note like this on my buggy! There's some good videos on YouTube by Paul Wilson re: swinging easy. Worth a look.
  3. I swing like a pro.....on the Champions Tour. Flat, slow & like an 80 year old. Not bad for a guy under 40
  4. A pink dot about 2 dimples above the name of the ball, on the right side of the name. Am putting Snell MTB into action this week (no one else that I know of or have seen plays them in my parts), but will still do the pink dot to keep the continuum.
  5. I walk with a buggy. Thinking of buying a stand/carry bag to take away with me when I travel. I have carted a few times, but don't enjoy the rushing between shots. I like to take the course in & need the time between shots to think & relax.
  6. Happiness is a long walk with a putter - Greg Norman Why the F@#k did I do that? Me, every week on the course
  7. Here in Oz it's coming into our summer, so at the moment we are getting light until after 8:30pm. Gonna enjoy it while it lasts!! Worked on 50-60y pitches with 56deg wedge (watching the 'zip' and roll out with 1/4 - 1/2 swing), and chipping bump and run style with different irons/wedges from appx 25y. I would hit 5 shots at a time, then go onto the green to putt them for up & downs, as per game conditions. Needed to work on the putting. I have a tendency to lift my head quickly & chase the putt, so was working on a nice smooth stroke and staying down, only following the ball wi
  8. Had an 84 on Saturday - my best rd to date (45/39). First time under 40 on the back 9. Net 66 & Comp win. Didn't do anything fancy, just hit a couple more fairways, was calm with approach shots (going for centre of greens, not the tight pins), and better lag putting. The basics of golf I suppose Backed that up with a 98 on Sunday, which was back to some very poor golf. I felt rushed and lost my calmness/concentration when it was required. The score from Saturday gives me optimism that I can score in the low-mid 80's consistently with the right plan & mindset.
  9. After not being phased by bunkers (have been confident from them for ages), I've recently had the yips in the past few months. First Rd of Club Champs on the weekend just gone saw me skinny from a greenside bunker over the green to the other bunker, and then 4 shots to get out of that one to a tight pin. Have changed 60 deg wedge in the past 6 months (Mack Daddy 2 to Vokey K Grind), I feel this has something to do with it, although ultimately it comes back to technique & confidence.
  10. In this order: 1. The slower group should have asked you, and allowed you to play through. You would have been on the green by the time they were playing their 2nd shots. 2. You should have asked to play through if they didn't ask you to. It's ok to do this after they tee off too (as long as they aren't too far from the tee). 3. If the above fails, and you have requested to play through a couple of times, take their names and report it (or bomb balls over their heads off the tee ). This is why the pace of play has become so prevalent over the past few years!!!
  11. I've played terribly for 6 out of the past 7 rounds, including a kickabout ambrose. Gonna go back to the basics, and really work on things as per this link from a different site: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/93/golf/ultimate-practice-routine-992787/
  12. Unfortunately customer service isn't what it should be in all aspects of life, and more than likely we've all experience being delivered incorrect goods at some stage (whether that be golf equip, cars, online purchases etc) A simple phone call from the manufacturers confirming the equipment & specs would have avoided this outcome, and kept you as a happy chappy
  13. Plaid, can you remember a 'breakthrough' moment when it clicked for you?
  14. Hey Kenny! Completely agree with grinding it out with the correct habits. Seeing a Pro and getting lessons, whether it be to learn new technique or swing changes, or to just get reinforcement on something you're doing right is something I need to get back into the habit of. It's leading into our summer now, so may be a great time for a tune up.
  15. I'd like to hear about breakthroughs that you've all had, and what has led you to becoming better players through continually grinding away. Thought I'd share a long winding, frustrating story about something that's happened to me recently (again), and no doubt to all of us throughout our golfing lives. Firstly, I'm absolutely sick of playing inconsistent irons, or any club for that matter. I hate stuffing up my approach shot after splitting the fairway off the tee, or pushing/slicing (sometimes shanking with shorter clubs), leaving me with demoralising results. I'll make a gener
