  1. like this one....... nice chatting with ya! keep on posting those record scores.....
  2. oooh did I hit a nerve there big fella- no worries, all's good, chill.
  3. elbow started feeling funny a few rounds ago, ignored it and played 2 days ago, first two holes were ok I thought, bit of a twinge but Its a beautiful day so I'm carrying on. On the 3rd tee halfway up my backswing I though I'd been shot in the elbow with a red hot needle! tried a couple more times and dropped the club it was that painful. Had to walk off and research t'interweb for the reason and fix. So it looks, and feels, like tennis elbow, torn tendons and muscles etc Watched videos on how to recover quickly and been doing them the last 2 days plus I've strapped a bandage over it, going to try again tomorrow as I was playing pretty good with long game no issues and chipping and putting coming on enormously. I'm going to try a half swing and very very light right hand pressure and see if I can play, wont be the same not being on both toes and hitting hard but I WANT to play...
  4. I think the marketing has certainly worked on one person The flip side 'could be' sell cheaper clubs as we need to shift stock to make room for new models. Backed up due to covid working restrictions so less staff and certainly supply chain affected. Time will tell about their financial quarter but most companies dont cut prices when product is in demand. I give you Apple as an example. Just another perspective.
  5. well it was scorchio and I think I forgot all the simple swing thoughts I had in winter that had me playing consistently the best I have had for years. Pulls, heels, thins and a couple of J Arthurs were the order for the front 9. Remembered by key swing thoughts and feeling back 9 and it started to come back, but man its hard leaving golf for nearly 3 months and expect to play well. Back out Wednesday for game 2 of my weekly allowance of 2. Good news is the range is open if no more than 3 at a time well apart, so will head down there at night when its cooler.
  6. Havent posted in this thread for a few months as we've been in lockdown. Just posting to say its eased after 67 days and I have a tee time for this afternoon yippee The weather here is hot and dry so I'm hoping the course is in ok condition and I play as well as I was pre lockdown, report later.
  7. Touring pro's can shoot 84 in a tournament! It happens, its golf and why we love it. As a 2.3 handicap I could shoot 65 then a week later 81 Now as a 6 I can still shoot below par rarely and well above par consistently. But I still have fun!
  8. stage 0.5 up https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/37205-2020-official-member-review-ping-g710-irons/?do=findComment&comment=607257
  9. meant to ask, what format do they want videos in and how did you send to them? i.e email or whatsapp etc, sorry to ask but havent heard back from them since booking, hoping they have my details ok.
  10. Kind of, havent heard from Ping about the videos they mentioned, plus it will be a very unusual fitting sitting in my front room, but who knows, maybe it will turn out to be the best one ever! I'll update of course once its done.

    including Luke Donald, and he's ok at putting
  12. grip down half an inch for awhile before doing anything drastic.
  13. 5 words!...........you're outta here...........!
  14. My glass is half empty.................but my bottle is half full
  15. agreed re social media and the news- I had it on in our house all day, so I wouldnt miss any govt updates, but I found we were also talking about it constantly and our anxiety was rising. Decided to watch the govt briefing at 5pm ONLY and the rest of the day is watching netflix or recorded shows, swing and chipping in the garden, housework and garden chores. I def feel better for doing this.
  16. I want a mask that makes me look like Leonardo DiCaprio
  17. nicked from T'interweb but quite fun...... I'll start.............. "The Lord Sent Me"
  18. Madness until a vaccine or accurate tests are available with results within hours.. Can you imagine the furore if one person contracts this deadly disease from any tournament? You could have 1 super spreader who unknown to him/her infects hundreds at one tournament just by touching a flag, or score card, pencil, water bottle storage handle etc etc If only I could invent a pair of glasses that would let you 'see' infected areas or people, like infrared does. I think our lives have changed dramatically for the next 18 months.
  19. sounds like theres still a lot of golf happening in the States? All locked down here, Police are called if anyone spotted trying to play any course.
  20. if they didnt make them stronger but did make the ball go higher we would all be losing a lot of distance- it makes sense based on the science. Just takes a bit of getting used to when you would normally play a 6 iron to your fav par 3 and now its a 7 or 8.
