Funny old year....

Evenin MGS folk

 

Firstly seasons greetings to you all,

 

really aware I've been away from the site since the summer, checked in now and again to follow the Kirkland ball shenanigans and the demise of Nike golf. Europe got hosed and the Open produced probably the finest shoot out in 25 years....plenty going on in the sport we love. Although a bit of a feeling that things aren't all well.

 

So this season: I bought no golf clubs - probably leading to the demise of 3 shops and 1 manufacturer on my own!

 

I demo'd the Ping Crossover for MGS and I still love it - it's in the bag. Not tried it yet? Find the right shaft and it's a winner.

 

I won a few things, but stopped caring about my handicap and work has meant practice has gone out of the window! Handicap has drifted.....

 

We're having an oddly dry winter in England so winter golf is possible, played some of the most wonderful links courses in the last 2 months - st enedoc, Burnham and Saunton (visitors from overseas take note - Scotland isn't the only place for great golf, try south west England).

 

So where have I been? Frankly my energy for golf just drifted and practice, buying clubs, reading articles and being an active member wasn't up their on the list - not sure it's back to normal levels yet but as I started to think about next years comps I want to enter the energy comes back.

 

So maybe I'll be back here a bit more......

I used to get those too, but I installed an ad blocker on my system and they are gone now.  I knew a few guys that I went to Russia with from 1994-2004 that met and married Russian women.  I wonder how that is working out now??

Your absence has been our loss. I've really missed you. Lots going on in both of our parts of the world this summer and fall. Your perspective is helpful golwise and beyond. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

 

I'm delighted to hear from you.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Thanks folks kind words as always from the best golf community on the web.

 

So aside from Costco balls (not available outside the US I'd guess) have I missed anything much?
