    Premium Ball Market

    Taken the plunge and bought a dozen Pro V1x's after a little ball fitting. Felt a bit sick purchasing them but hey, im all for trying things to improve my game and I only lose maybe a ball a round on average at the most. I used to be sceptical about shafts until I got my Project Xs and X stiff...

    The Oaks

    I recently played at The Oaks in a Pro-Am on Friday 13th May and had a magnificent day. Its situated in the middle of nowhere really, between Howden and York(ish) for those of you not local. You can tell it’s a quality place as you drive up. Nice tidy entrance and a driveway, which meanders...

    Favourite golf quotes

    Share your favourites. Mines from Mr Player: "you must work very hard to become a natural golfer." Not the funniest but so very wise and true. People aren't born with perfect swings, they are constructed and honed in

    Who's swing would you have?

    Which pro players swing would you have if a genie granted you a wish mines a toss up between oosthaizen for his templo and plane and then McIlroy for his motion. Rory just pips it though for how he goes through the ball. So many intricate movements in his body for the power he generates

    FS: Odyssey Versa #7 - Superstroke Grip

    Bit of a heavy heart with this one but I am looking at moving my putter on. I am wanting to go back to a blade since I struggle with pace using this putter despite me being great from 6ft with it. There is some wear and tear on the top where the white coating has come away. Apart from that its...

    Two Balls in Hole - Ruling Please

    I had a quick search but couldn’t really find anything: Scenario: We are both on the putting green. I have a putt then nudge in my ball after missing the first. I go to get my ball but I see my playing partner is in the zone so I step away and let him have a roll. He holes his putt - so now...
