  1. I'm working at not breaking into laughter every time I hit a shank, slice, hook or thin it. I have a very loud laugh and it makes my playing partners question my mental health....
  2. That balance is so key, I always have 2 litres of rehydrate with me too, especially if its above 30 Degrees Celsius...
  3. I've been struggling to maintain or improve my HCP this year, too many thoughts going through my head, nerves, and me putting pressure on myself to break 10 HCP this year. CBD oil doesn't work, chewing gum works a tiny bit, but a flask of whiskey or a premixed flask of G&T is working like a charm! I'm down 3 HCP points in 3 weeks! I even manage to be sober before the comp is done.... Would love to hear others thoughts on this from fellow drunks or teetotalers....
  4. Has anybody played these beauties!? From youtube reviews these things look legit and are well priced, just hesitant biting the bullet as I can't get fitted in Australia. https://www.haywoodgolf.com/products/signature-irons
  5. From a quality and budget perspective these are my best pics that you can't go wrong with: Pants - Inesis (Decathlon) or Kando (Uniqlo) Great quality, Dirt Cheap, and a good selection. https://www.decathlon.com/collections/golf-pants https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/men-ultra-light-kando-pants-426179.html?dwvar_426179_color=COL05&cgid=#q=golf&lang=default&start=1 Polos - Uniqlo, well priced and last long https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/men-dry-ex-short-sleeve-polo-shirt-422962.html?dwvar_422962_color=COL00&cgid=#q=polo&lang=default&start=1 For that extra touch of funk or humour its all Golf Gods or William (Bill) Murray for me: https://www.williammurraygolf.com/ https://golfgodsonline.com/
  6. to elaborate on the playing partners, if they are better than you it can be very motivating too. Yes, you don't wanna kill the pace of play, but you also want to give them a run for their money.
  7. I got the audiobook and listen to it on social rounds or when practicing.
  8. I assume you read the Zen Golf book! hahahah Was a great eye opener for me.
  9. I'd love to hear from other hackers what you do to stay motivated when the going gets tough? Since i'm a proud golf bum aka thrift store7udget golfer, every-time I break into a new HCP segment I buy something new/fitted. When I broke 20, I bought, new Adidas shoes, when I broke 15 I got a fitted Cobra driver. Breaking 10 will mean some new cutlery (irons) for me...
  10. Mines a mixed bag... Won comps on 3 continents 1 Eagle, Slam-Dunk from 160 meters after topping the tee shot. Driver head exploded while playing at -3 degrees Celsius without pre-heating the Ball
  11. Most important thing and one of the first things I was taught is to keep the pace of play, 10-15min per hole. when I used to hit 15min and I had people behind me, I'd pick up and move on. Being respectful and not egotistical is key, all other pointer that are mentioned in this thread can follow.
  12. We used to play ''Good Shots vs Bad Shots'' off the tee. If you don't hit the fairway, you take a shot...of tequila..... We didn't last very long.
  13. Keto/Banting is the . Been doing that for a year now and lost 10kg and have sooo much more energy. Tim Noake's Real Meal Revolution is great https://realmealrevolution.com/
  14. My Hat is supposed to deceive people, so far nobody has called me out about it yet:
  15. I've been eyeing this beauty for a while..... https://golfgodsonline.com/collections/putters/products/golf-gods-the-big-d-putter?variant=32667103690838 ...........
  16. If I turn my right hand under any more, I'll end up dislocating my wrist. But the 3 deg draw settings sounds worth trying, even though the lower loft would mean I can't go tiger line anymore.
  17. Thats what I thought, I guess I gotta keep tweaking and practicing. Kinda like when you get a new car, confidence is off a bit. Different type of driving! hahaha
  18. Heyo fellow Hackers, so I recently ''upgraded'' from my M3 to the SZ, I could shape the M3 nicely, but the consistency and distance needed some help. After a Cobra demo day and a proper fitting the SZ gave me less spread and an average of 7 meters extra distance. Shockingly though, out on the course, with the same swing and setup as I had with my M3 I hit this huuuuuge slice in comparison to my fairly straight hits on the launch monitor. The only key difference I can think of is going from a silverish (M3) face to a very dark silver7 blackish (SZ) Face, which is different to read and messes with my face to path setup. Other thing I thought was that they just favourably tweaked the trackman at the pro shop to make the club work for me inside? Anybody else experience this when getting a new boom stick? All I want is my draw back....
  19. Little Update: I got the shafts fitted and won my first comp in Australia the following weekend.
  20. Yeah, I'm gonna test my C300 with the LZ & the Dynamic Gold 300s, just to see if the result is actually close to a 30$ difference per shaft. I want to play these clubs at least another 3 years (5 years in total), or if I manage to get to a steady single digit hcp.
  21. No, the LZ was fitted to AP2 Irons, don't know if they are heavier than my C300's
  22. I agree with the chunking bit, I couldn't believe how much easier it was to get good impact after hitting it fat!
  23. Yeah, apparently if you have a steady tempo and smooth transition the LZ won't feel too great. if you're on the opposite scale like me, it helps you steady your swing.
  24. Let me start off with a confession, my irons Wilson c300, KBS regular shafts, were bought as a demo set, not fitted. I have a 6 iron swing speed of 88/mph and tend to hook mis-hits. I knew a stiffer shaft could be the way to increase accuracy and lower dispersion for me from listening to "no putts given", so I went for a fitting and tried the Dynamic Gold shaft amongst others, but I was blown away by the Project X LZ Steel 6.5. It decreased my dispersion drastically and stabilised my swing. What I liked most though is the 125 grams of weight, which is mostly shifted closer to the club head. This feeling gave me so much more confidence when picking up the club! The only downside is that in Australia, the shaft costs 30 AU$/shaft more than the dynamic gold, which is making me consider biting the bullet and getting new irons in the process, even though mine are only 2 years old. Any thoughts or different experiences with this shaft?
  25. So turns out Australian golf courses don't like my ''Pimp my Scooter'' Project and I'm not allowed to use it on the course, not even on cart paths. Well was worth try...
