  1. Thanks for the input, now I have to try and find one to have a hit with. Unfortunately that’s the hard part at the moment. I will keep looking through. What did you think of the feel as far as you could tell?
  2. Hi all, I am wondering if anyone is playing the Cobra one length utilities. They are very rare here in Tasmania, that is I haven't been able to get my hands on one to try it. Iron wise I am playing the Ping i210's which I love but I am struggling at the top of the bag. Even though I am a 16 handicapper I play irons better than hybrids or fairway woods and have had a Ping G410 crossover in the bag since they came out but I am wondering if I would get more benefit if I was to put the 3,4 and 5 one length utilities into my bag just through the ( hopefully ) more consistent strike with the one len
  3. Welcome to a great community. Hope that you continue to enjoy your golf.
  4. Hi, they are on the shelf and in my pro shop here in Tasmania. I took one out on the range yesterday for a short hit (recovering from an arthroscopy on my medial ligament so not going hard), I was very impressed. Lovely feel and sound and from the limited number of balls I hit it performed really well. I currently am using a Ping i25 because nothing has worked better for me yet but I got a really good feeling about this driver. It was quite windy but the tsi2 that I tried had a very nice penetrating flight. I will be taking it out again next week when I get the all clear on my knee and compari
  5. Got my V3 last week, looks great and very comfortable to wear. Was disappointed to find that my course is not mapped so I have put in a request. Finally got on the course yesterday and hit play, only to find that even though I was standing on the first tee there was "no course within 1 mile". Hopefully the mapping will be done by the next time I get out so I can start getting some stats.and just maybe improve my game.
  6. That is awesome, well done.
  7. Hi, all I am wondering if anyone has done the 20 Minute Distance Fix that Clay Ballard of Top Speed Golf is offering. I am talking about the online version rather than going and doing it in person as it's a bit of a long way over there from here in Tasmania, not even to consider the travel restrictions. The guys gave it a shout out yesterday on No Putts Given in the distance fix session so it is obviously legit, but I am wondering if it will work for me remotely rather than in person. Any opinions and input would be welcome as I would really like to hit it a bit further, as I guess would most
  8. Best of luck to all who enter. Can't put my hand up from here in Tasmania but really looking forward to hearing if testers think these can keep up with the big boys. Good hitting all and stay safe.
  9. Hello again everyone, after Golf Australia recommending all Australian course to close, and therefore my course Seabrook G C closing last night, I have just received another email saying that the Tasmanian Premier (= USA Governor) said that he regarded golf as excellent exercise and therefore as long as people only play in pairs and respect all other social distancing practices golf is fine. This means that my course re opens tomorrow. Unfortunately I go back to work for 7 days as of tomorrow so missed my game this time. I can only hope that the message is the same in a week's time. Not
  10. Hi all, a quick update on my post a couple of hours ago, I have just received an email saying that Golf Australia has recommended closing all golf courses for a minimum of 4 weeks so there goes that game i was going to have tomorrow. Again keep safe everyone.
  11. Here in Tasmania our courses are all still open to the best of my knowledge. My home course, Seabrook G C, is open with a limit of 2 players per group. You fill in and sign your own card, announcing your score to your playing partner after each hole. Competition payment is card only, no cash. We only have a few carts but as most places a limit of 1 person per cart. Holes still at normal depth but pins removed and holes close to the centre of all greens. Happy and safe play to all.
  12. I like it, seems very helpful.
  13. Bad news for sports fans everywhere. The main thing though is to try and keep everyone safe and healthy if possible, many events cancelled or being held in closed stadiums here in Aus also. Best wishes to everyone and their families, we can only hope that this passes quicker than is currently expected.

  15. Looking like being a fantastic last day. Hoping the Aussie fans keep the pressure on but also keep it nice! There should not be abuse, but nothing wrong with good spirited sledging.
