  1. Hope you have great fun here in Tassie and you enjoy the golf. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
  2. Just paid for a L.A.B Putters B2 on eBay. I have been interested in the concept of these for a while but they are hard to find here in Aus. and paying close to 1K or more to get one here from the USA was going a bit too far. Anyway, I won the bidding on this one at A$360 so looking forward to seeing if it is money well spent or not.
  3. Great to see him back on. The channel was not quite as good without him in my opinion.
  4. I leave my glove on, have tried taking it off but could not notice any difference.
  5. Going on my past efforts I would stand a better chance if the prize was for selecting players who unexpectedly collapse after being in contention, not gonna let that stop me having another go though. Thanks for putting these great competitions on and a shout out to Titleist for the great prize.
  6. Max Homa winning at Wells Fargo tournament would be a good "Stocks Up" , has a great public personality and comes across as the type of bloke you would love to have along at a BBQ. Nice person, nice wife, got a dog and a baby on the way, what more could you want? 

  7. Are you thinking he should go full Cam Smith or are you looking down a different style? Being an Aussie I think emulating Cam is not a bad way to go.
  8. Really good new feature, love Ricky checking strokes just like the rest of us.
  9. Don't know when they are available here in Tasmania but I would definitely like to get a box of the "stripes" and give them a try.
  10. Think that these are great suggestions to make shotscope even more useful. Have you sent these suggestions to them directly? I have found that they are fantastic responding to queries, remapping etc. At the moment they are sending me a new buckle for my band as mine broke during a round and I enquired as I didn't want to buy a new band if I didn't have to. No charge and really fast response, cannot rate their service highly enough.
  11. I really enjoy the almost daily emails from them, usually a couple of interesting articles and seeing what the Pros play is interesting if not relevant. Hope that they don't change too much.
  12. Gorgeous late summer weather here in Tasmania, heading out in the morning for a first day of Autumn game before I head back to work on Wednesday. Need a decent round to keep the handicap at 17, which gives me a 15 at my club so wish me luck.
  13. Got to say I was surprised to see the Ping G425 Max come out on top with all of the new releases. I know that it doesn't mean that it is best for everyone but I do think that it once again shows that Ping does not put out new products unless they think they have improved on the last one. In my opinion a 1 year cycle for new products is all well and good but if you are not putting out a better performing club it does not help your credibility.
  14. Really good info. Makes me think I should comment and post more often instead of just reading. How did we get access to the testing template?
  15. Even if the head has hit a lot of shots I would think this is concerning. If I take my 2 rounds a week minimum and at least 12 driver shots per round that is around 1200 shots per year and I would be very annoyed if a $1000 (Australian) driver looked anywhere that bad after only a year. Will be interested to see what these look like on the used market in 12 months.
  16. Very nice job, not really up with the Euro Cup, but I am guessing from memory that you are supporting the Netherlands. Best of luck. Regards Mick.
  17. Welcome from a fellow electrician down here in Tasmania, just starting to get a little wet on the course here. As my birthday is on the 26th I am pleased that it is a special number for you. At 56 I am trying to maintain a 17 handicap, some days it seems easy and others not. Would like to see photos of your upgrades if you want to post them.

    The Nut

    Yep, happy birthday. Hopefully a year full of birdies and no lost balls.
  19. Mick Close Somerset, Tasmania, Australia Odyssey White Steel 2 Ball Would love to try the Impact 3
  20. Just watched Bluey with the kids and decided that I am a bobo head for worrying about my golf. But I still can't stop snap hooking every 2nd drive!!
  21. 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?
  22. 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 length and then transition to my i210 6 iron. Any advice and experience would be welcome. Thanks, Michael Close.
  23. Welcome to a great community. Hope that you continue to enjoy your golf.
  24. 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 comparing it against my i25 and also the new Ping 425 which someone else had when I was there hitting but looks sensational.
