    1st day back...

    As some may remember about 3 weeks ago I managed to put my back out whilst lifting at work, well consequently I've not swing a club now for about 5 weeks so at 11am today I'm off for a knock about just to see how things are, wish me luck !... :thup:

    That's blown it...

    A week ago Friday I was at work lifting some reasonably heavy mats about (with a work mate, not on my own) when a sudden twang announced the arrival of lower back spasms and the immediate inability to do anything other than hobble about like an old man... They say an active working life helps...

    DI's...

    Driving irons, seen one in a local charity shop and was thinking about seeing if I can pick it up cheap enough... Anybody use one regularly or are they just a bit of a gimmick and I'd be better of sticking to the 3/7-wood and 4h that I've already got in the bag... Just interested in giving it...

    Maximising potential...

    Hello chaps, although I hit my current 3-wood really well (XCG3/stiff) the dispersion can on occasion leave a little to be desired, I'm fairly confident (bar measuring) that my average drive (off the tee) is somewhere in the region of 220/230 carry 'although' I can hit it better or worse on any...

    To cut or not to cut, that's the question...

    Recently aquired a set of 'King Cobra 3100i/h' irons which I'm playing really well barring the 6i which I have a tendency to put right of target... I did a 'spec check' on'em and discovered that they're .5 inch over standard and a half a degree uprite so 7i is 37" and 62.5° lie as opposed to...

    Traveling light...

    How many clubs do you guys have in the bag, the full compliment or just enough to get the job done ?... Ive got 11 at the moment, 3w, 7w, 22* hybrid, 7/8/9/pw/sw/50/60 and putter although this can change at any time... Do you use all yer clubs or are there clubs that you really wouldn't miss...

    I got wood !...

    Yesterday I managed to pick up a real tidy set of 'King Cobra 3100I/h' irons and a matching 7-wood to go alongside them for what can only be described as 'loose change' from the bottom of my pocket... Now, as some may know I've recently been struggling with certain club/swing related issues the...

    HC for dummies...

    Hi peoples, just wondering if there's an easy way to calculate yer score minus yer handicap or is it all dependant on slope ratings and wotnot... I'm reasonably new to the game in a competitive nature having only just aquired my handicap of 21 and to be honest I find it complicated enough to...

    Iron distances...

    Hello boys and girls, haven't been on for a while as I've been busy with work and a college course and of course 'playing golf' as much as possible before it starts raining again... Just a quickie really I've been working on my drives off the 'T' as this is where I've been falling flat on my...

    Fatties...

    Been struggling with my irons as of late (regular Speedblades) with lots of shanks, slices and pushes, I've had the lies checked, shortened the shafts, lengthened the shafts again, had a pro check my swing (no issues there) I've even tried different demo irons and a set of standard irons 'off a...

    Distance vs accuracy.

    Howdy, not to sure if I've asked this before but here goes anyway. Ive got several sets of irons but 2 are of particular interest to me, one a set of 'Wilson Fatshafts' that I first started playing with 2-3yrs ago now the other a set of 'Nicklaus Polarity TR1' with 'Aldila NV' shafts in which...

    What's really happenin...?

    I is confoosed, I was just reading the thread about Rory and his M2 driver when a little notion popped into me head, I thought I'd heard somewhere that 'TM' were ceasing to exist as of January 2017 alongside Nike ceasing production of golf equipment, is I correct or did I just dream it up one...

    Stiff vs regular or accuracy vs distance...

    Got a bit of a problem brewing so to speak, I recently changed shafts in my irons from regular to stiff as I was having accuracy problems (couldn't stop pushing right) which has done wonders for my accuracy, tightened up dispersion and now allows me to head straight for the pin as opposed to...

    Why did I bother...

    Went out for a knock about this evening, 1st time in 3 weeks after having a chest infection, by the time I'd got to the 3rd T I was wondering why I'd even bothered, as soon as the cold air got in my lungs that was it I couldn't hit swing a club for peanuts let alone hit a decent shot with any...

    Long boy...

    Had a bit of a play around with shafts in a 'Big Bertha 3-wood' at work this morning, a work colleague and myself happen to have 4 different shaft configurations kicking about our lockers, a standard 'Aldila stiff' driver shaft, a 'Speeder regular' driver shaft about an inch shorter than...

    Are you a tackle tart ?

    Took my old 'Wilson MDS Fatshafts' out for a run on Friday and the first thing that struck me was how straight I was hitting them compared to my currant irons (Mizuno T-zoids) the second thing that caught my attention was the extra distance I had gained and how hard I was able to hit them...

    Blades it is...

    Having struggle with so called 'game improvement' irons from the off (been playing seriously for a couple of years now) a friend of mine suggested I try his old 'Mizzy T zoids' but me being me (and having spent a small fortune on my present irons) I was reluctant to admit defeat so persevered...

    What rescue !...

    Hello peeps I'm on the hunt for suggestions as to my next rescue club, I want 19* and extra stiff but where I come unstuck is I need something that's gonna glide through thick'ish rough with relative ease or at least not get tangled up in it quite so much as my current rescue which is an...

    Had enough now !...

    For over a week now I've been looking foward to a round with the boys on 'New Year's Eve' but all its done all day today is piss down, I was hoping it would clear away this afternoon giving the course a chance to drain a bit before tomorrow but no chance ! Tomorrow looks like it's gonna be...
