Testers Wanted: Star Grips! ×

Hello From Australia


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm a keen golfer from Melbourne in Australia. I took up the game about 18 months ago after playing a few bad rounds about 20 years ago. I was exceptionally bad, so set about getting some lessons. My initial clubs were a Taylormade RBZ set which set me back about $1800 Australian and despite being 'fitted' by one of the large golf stores, I soon learned they were completely wrong for me. Through a lot of work with the coach, my swing has gone from horrible slice drives to a baby draw. In the process, I learned about the importance of proper fittings. I now have an all Titleist set up with a TSR2 driver, 4W and 3H all with extra stiff flex. My irons are T100s with low spin stiff flex shafts and the wedges are Vokey 54 and 58 degrees. I was shocked that the T100s was the right iron for me and am very thankful I got a proper fitting. the only club left is finding the right putter now. I've found an excellent club to join with a pretty challenging course and the next step in my game is getting the short game going. I spend way too much time on youtube looking at content and reviews and am keen to see some of the reviews here.

Hi mate! 
Was over in Queensland in November and played a couple rounds. Never mind water hazards or bunkers, the real hazards were the wildlife on the course, snakes and joeys haha

Welcome to the MGS forum.  I’m certain you will find much comradeship and information while you’re here.  Interesting bag for someone who has only played 18 months.  Good for you.
