    Golf kit organiser or storage unit

The garage though still keeps my car ( I am a bit peculiar like that!) I can go...

    Courses in the UK you would not recommend

    We have the best 100 , how about the ones you wouldn’t recommend 100. You have to have played them and they have to be in existence. Also you have to say why they are the worst.. This is purely opinion

    7 wood options

    Currently have a bespoke 7 wood . It’s a J33 Bridgestone head, and ust tour green 70g stiff shaft. I think it’s slightly delofted and closed though, as I just cannot get a floaty fade with it. Bad shot is a pull and I have been addressing this but I wonder if there is something out there a...

    House alarm issues

    My battery is drained, yeah it’s great timing! Just ordered a new back up battery. But I have removed the old one , as it was beeping and needed resetting every 3 minutes. Have I managed to stop the constant beeping or am I in for a night of fun and games ?

    Wedge grinds

    I have been struggling with my short game all year. I have a tendency to chunk or thin my wedges around the green. I play from tight lies, and firm surfaces. I also am not a huge divot taker, I might go steep on a full shot but the stuff around the green is where my problems are. So I am...

    Align grips

    I have an align grip on my driver, none of my other clubs have that grip. I really don’t think I get any benefit plus it looks a bit of a task to get lined up on the Callaway adapter shaft. Does anyone use these and think they are worth replacing?

    Season has ended

    Well it looks like that’s me done for the season. Handicap changes .. up 0.5 down 0.1 .. so did not really get going. Results were poor at the start of the season but I pulled it back, just didn’t get the opportunity to play in those competitions. Got to the semifinals of the individual match...

    Selling platforms

    I am looking into selling a few clubs. I usually go to eBay but they have changed their policy and want my bank details.. I prefer them to use PayPal so I am looking at other modes of selling clubs. Has anyone used Facebook market place, gumtree or preloved and got advice?

    Driving distances and the reality

    So GM have released a video I suspect, your all around the scratch distance 😉. For me I am pleased with my efforts given my age group but I also think it should influence course set up going forward as well. I will keep working on my technique to improve what I can but there is only so...

    Buffing and polishing of heads - any advice

    As the title suggests I have treated myself to some drill attachments that will hopefully remove rust ( the ping rustic, has rusted beautifully in my dads garage!) I was going to remove most of it and leave the face alone, and then I got some polishing wheels and compounds to have a dabble ...

    Shoulders at address

    Going to Chuck this out there ... For me I have noticed at set up if I can get my trailing shoulder lower than my lead shoulder .. I hit straight to draw, level them up or slightly lower on the lead it’s an opportunity to hit a slice/fade etc .. Any opinions on this ?

    Seven wood

    I have a seven wood, it’s in and out of the bag regularly. I love it’s versatility, windy days it’s a bit too high but it’s a good club. I was thinking is it worth looking at updating it, it’s a Bridgestone J33 head, I picked up and had made up for me. Just wondering if there are hotter lower...
