  1. OK, I have no golf teaching experience but will give throw two cents at this anyway. Yes, you are right they should move that way as the pictures indicate. You could be subconsciously correcting your swing to compensate. There's a couple of things you could do. Firstly, just aim straight, if the ball is going where you're aiming, try that. It sounds stupid and obvious but if it works great, if not, at least you tried. My guess is you will start to miss on the opposite side to your present miss, i.e. as per picture. Then you can gradually move your target to adjust. As an aside, your miss is vi
  2. I liked the Callaways until I had a 56 with too much bounce. Moved to Cleveland RTX4s and love them. Still have a 52 Callaway. It's awesome you have wedges you like. I am never one to say such a wedge is better than another. We each are bringing so many individual variables to what wedges we play; 1) Where we come from in the world determines course conditions and, 2) Our differing angles of attack across all the different types of wedge shots you play. The one thing I would say is the ball we use can get forgotten in the wedge conversation. When you find the ball you like, sti
  3. That's always that fear, reaching for a club when you really need it, and it's no longer in the bag. Arguably, the gapping problem that needs addressing most is wedges. I will not be hitting that high a percentage of greens with a 3hybrid, 4hybrid or 3iron. And where I miss, the next club I reach for will be a wedge. And, even if it was a consistent miss, it would leave me short-sided on some holes and not on others. So I'm reaching for 52, 56 or 60, depending on lie and pin position. It's nice to have those options.
  4. It's not so much control with a hybrid but versatility. I like hitting low punchy ones with a low iron, fades and draws. I struggle doing the same with a hybrid.
  5. I was at that for a while but then I got really disciplined. One of the first was a Yes! Callow (34in). Nice, but I was getting a bad back so decided all Nik putters thereafter should be 35in. Then a Cleveland Classic #3, it looked really nice like the old Ping Zing. I just found I couldn't dial in distance putting and the feel was off. As soon as I lost confidence in it, it was time to move on. Next up was the Nike method (anser style), black and red. Same story as the Cleveland. Then Odyssey 1W. Then came a short run, TM Ardmore (copper fang) no good, Seemore (FPG? the big one) until I settl
  6. Excellent suggestion. I do love my ping G30 hybrid though. The most confidence-inspiring hybrid I have owned. I think when I originally got on-board the "hybrid" train a lot of them had the offset which can lead to the nasty snap-hook. For me, there is only one hole where I sometimes hit hybrid and left is OOB. Hybrids have come on since then though. It's a real bummer that, with restrictions not lifted in Ireland yet, I can't re-size the 3 iron to plus 0.5 inch length and get to a range and test it out. I think Cobra do adjustable hybrids so I could change to between a 3 and 4 hybrid (around
  7. So essentially they were hitting the public at the "heroes" offer anyway. They seem like nice clubs. Glad you like them. Would love to try them some day but not really available here and I think I'll get fit for my next iron set.
  8. OK, cool. I was just wondering. PXG does not have that big of a footprint here in the Ireland. PXG sets are few and far between (as the saying goes) this side of the Atlantic. I'd say most purchases are online. If any of the retailers have, and I can't recall seeing them, they would not be doing the "heroes" offer.
  9. I didn't know this thread was going for a year. I had a look back and from the stillon the initial post to recent twitter swings, I'm guessing you must have made some real improvement over the course of that last year. Will have a good read-through the story tonight.
  10. The No Putts Given Podcast said PXG were discounting up to 50% during April to boost online sales during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Would this not really annoy someone who forked out full price for an iron set pre-discount? They hiked the prices and created this niche market. It's a more exclusive brand. The problem I see is that this move will dilute that exclusivity and the people who bought these irons because they could afford them may not continue to buy them if everyone can afford them (at discounted prices). Have PXG removed the "U" in their "USP"? I'd be interested to hear others'
  11. Good to know the cobwebs off and get a feel for the real thing. I'd be similar to you in that driver is my weak club. God knows where the ball will go off the tee post-lockdown on the 18th May. Nice start and it's always good to feel positive post-round.
  12. Any experience with Bettinardi? What did you settle on in the end?
  13. I have an Odyssey Stroke Lab 7s and I'm about to get a 2nd hand bettinardi studio stock 8. Anyone have any experience with the Bettinardi? I swore I would not have more than one putter in the house but that only lasted around a year or so. I have a funny feeling there are similar-minded people on the MGS forum. I can be a streaky putter but putting well enough with the Odyssey. Never had a putter fitting but I'd say it's closer to straight back straight through than a slight arc. It was as much a curiosity thing to get the Bettinardi, such a good reputation for quality. P
  14. Unlike your good self, I need the shot a little more than "occassionally". I think a straight up 4wood 17 degree would be sweet. I couldn't trust myself with the adjustability.
