  1. Sounds interesting, I had not heard of it until you mentioned it but I went and looked it up. I could use more speed as I am not very long. Don't know whether I could justify the price along with a new driver which I am considering at the moment. Will be interested to hear from anyone who tests it with before and after speeds.
  2. Congrats on breaking 80, sounds as if you are progressing nicely. Looking forward to more updates when the weather over there allows you back out consistently.
  3. They are all great, tough choice. Well done all of you.
  4. I would take consistent distance every time, but being a 21 handicapper I tend to struggle with the general concept of consistency!

  6. Excellent review, I had not actually heard of the No1 grips but I would certainly consider getting them after reading this. I will be interested in how they perform in the wet, so please keep the information coming.

  8. Had a bit of a day out today, will really help with my aim to get to 18 before the year end. Had the 1 wipe but overall really good for me. The new ping i210's are starting to feel very nice and I am getting better at selecting the correct club.
  9. Have just received the first set of new irons I have ever owned, have always had second hand gear before. I bought the Ping i210 irons 4 through U. Got them with Dynamic Gold s flex. Had one round so far and managed 34 points so not too bad, need to work out the yardages as these have a more traditional loft than my old Shark irons and I found a couple of shots that I thought I struck well came up a little short of what I expected. Love the look and feel of these irons so looking forward to hopefully getting my handicap down. Am aiming for 18 by years end!

  14. Congrats to all of the place getters and well done to everyone in the top 10, it was great fun to try and work out where your selections were and another great comp. Thanks to MyGolfSpy and Wilson. Looking forward to the Open.
  15. That is fantastic, I am going to a fitting on Tuesday, really looking forward to it.
  16. Really enjoying the journey with the testing, thinking that I really need to get fit for this driver. I believe that there is a fitting day coming up locally very soon. Will be very interested to see what it feels like for my swing.
  17. Still looking pretty good over here in Tassie, (Australia), just finished daylight savings time so the colder weather will be coming. But I am expecting to get at least 3 rounds in on my days off ( I work 7 on/7off) as the forecast looks pretty good.
  18. G’day, my 5th tier selection is Angel Cabrera . Winning score -9 Really looking forward to seeing some great golf, not looking forward to lack of sleep!

  21. Again, thanks for the welcome. Forgot to say if you get back down this way let me know. We might be able to get a game in. I have promised myself a trip to Barnbougle and Lost Farm when I get back under 20!

    Regards Mick.

      No worries - fyi both my wife and I are high handicappers and both of us had our best games ever at Barnboogle! My "ultimate" trip, however, would be to King Island. And since my son-in-law is the ships engineer on the ferry between Devonport and Melbourne I might get a "lift' from him 😎

      Have been on the ferry a few times, it might be a bit of a swim to King Island though unless you could talk him into letting you borrow one of the life boats!😉
