    The left hand/arm in the golf swing

    The left arm for me is important in controlling width - especially in the backswing and tempo. Rory is a big advocate for the left arm in the golf swing and he talks a fair bit about keeping it as straight as possible. Any large break in the elbow can lead to inconsistency. You don’t move...

    Gym before or after work

    Has to be the morning so long as you can get a breakfast in. There’s been a few studies on training time and I do not think there was massive differences. When I used to train I just could not go after work. Literally zero motivation to go.

    Fairway woods

    I would recommend getting a fairway wood as as you get better you do need one as part of your set up. I think brand wise... I would probably look at a TaylorMade or a Ping. Reason being is they have a friendly shape to them from above and especially how low and flat the face is. Allows for a...

    Shortest period a club has been in the bag?

    Recently bought the cobra King driving iron with a graphite shaft I didn't get fit for it just hit it at the range and then again at an AG and ordered from my club pro. Absolutely loved it went a mile with a nice easy swing. On the course cannot hit it for toffee. I duff every shot with it...

    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...

    FS: Taylormade Aeroburner 3 wood

    Selling my 3 wood. Only had it for maybe 6-7 rounds. It's practically brand new as you can see from the photos. Few marks on face but as you can see from the photos you can't even see them hardly. I bought it new maybe 8 weeks ago for £99 so would like £70 for it including postage which is a...

    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...

    Society Handicap Calculations?

    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
