Hi everyone.  I a new member to the forum and have been golfing since the mid 1970's.  Had my handicap down to a 7.1 at the end of last year and this year it's risen up to a 14.1.  Am having some back problems, but not letting it get me down.  

I went for my first golf fitting in February of this year, which I would recommend for anyone to try one time.  It was fantastic, and about 2 hours of hitting balls with various clubs.  

Hit my clubs, then the Taylormade M2 and the Ping G. He used various shafts etc. Finally the fitter got me set on the Ping G's with a lightweight Stiff shaft, which is what I ordered.  Still don't have them dialed in yet, although I have played a lot of golf this year. When I was all done he let me hit his PXG 7 iron, and what a club.  Totally effortless hitting of a golf ball.  The problem is that they are also very very expensive.  Out of my league.  Hope to learn a lot in the forums.  Thanks.

Congrats on going for the fitting, that's the way to do it.  I hit the Ping G during a recent fitting,it was a great performing club.  I'm sure it'll get you back to where you want to be.   In the meantime join in on all the good conversations going on here.   Great group here.

      While at the PGA Show I had the opportunity to stop by the Under Armour Golf booth and check out all the latest in it's line of apparel, shoes and accessories.   I made off with these two cool pair of shades that we are giving away to two lucky forum members.   To be eligible, you have to be a forum member.   Then it's a simple as posting below which model you would prefer.  
      1) Big Shot Tuned Golf ideal for wearing on the course during play 
      2) Glimpse Tuned Recovery, designed to help your eyes de-stress after the round and return to a natural state,
      Both can be used on the course and the Big Shot Golf Tuned is one of the few golf sunglasses that are officially rated safe for driving a vehicle. 
      So tell us below which one you would choose to win and Good Luck!!
      Entries will be closed on Sunday February 3rd at 11:59 PM EST   The two winners will be announced in this thread by Tuesday February 5, 2019. 
       


       
      Thanks everyone for the great response to this giveaway.   
      Congratulations to our two winners:  Please send me a PM with your mailing address.

      So this was just a random off the wall topic today, that became quite an interesting discussion, with some sides and view points i didn't think of initially.  Say  the magic Golf Genie were to grant you ONE wish, you could have 25 more yards on every drive, or a guarantee drop of 3 strokes for each round.   Which would you choose, and most importantly why?
      Remember to vote in the poll.  I guess app and TT users won't be able to see it.

      Hey guys,


       
      We have recently taken up golf and are now on a very tongue-in-cheek journey to becoming scratch golfers. Don’t worry, we’re closer to landing on the moon at this rate.


       
      We document each round and would love to hear any feedback, tips or if anyone else around London/Essex wants to play.


       
      Our latest video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6K8KtmpGbA


       
      Check it out, if you can!
