    Golf Mat or Astro Turf - Recommend?

    Hi All If we are gonna be "stuck" at home for a month, now that I have my golf net I need a golf mat for smashing balls off. Any recommendations? Couple of cheap ones out there for £30 - £60 are they good enough or shall I just get 2m of Astro Turf? Potentially go up to £200 if I have to!!

    New Grip not on all the way... Issue?

    Hi All Recently had all my clubs re-gripped. One of the grips seems to not be on fully, it seems to be 1/2 inch off the end of the club. This makes two of my irons not the same length instead of 1/2 inch difference! Is this going to cause me an issue? Should I get it replaced or not bother...

    New Hybrid : G20 -> G410...

    Hi All I've had my G20 4 Hybrid (23 deg) for about 10 years - it's ugly as hell and the offset is huge - not a pretty sight at address. I used it alot for the few years I was playing 2010-2015 and it used to go straight but it also used to hook pretty badly whenever it wanted :( I love the...

    When does lie angle become negligible?

    Hi all So I'm tall and my irons are fitted but my driver / woods/ hybrid are standard length etc. I'm assuming after a certain length lie angle bears very little significance on shot shape or does it?

    Shorter Long Irons ???

    Hi All So I'm 6" 4" left handed and my Ping i20 clubs are 1" longer than standard. Now I can hit my 7 iron (effectively a 5 iron length) pretty well around 175 yards but I can't hit my 5 or 6 iron consistently - just too long! I know I can go down the hybrid route for 5 iron, but any thoughts...

    New Hybrid same length?

    Hi All Im after a new hybrid to match my G20 23* but my current hybrid is 0.5" longer. Im thinking if I get a 20* that I want to get the standard length as I should be able to hit it aswell. Anything longer I might struggle with. Any thoughts?

    Hi All hit 100 or so balls with my new i20 clubs and they already have small scratches on the face of a few of the club faces. Some of the balls I hit were pretty old, are these doing damage to my lovely new clubs? Mattie

    Now many layers of tape can you get under a grip...

    Hi All Just took delivery of my lovely new i20 irons with 3 layers of tape and a jumbo grip. Unfortunately I have such big hands that I have to put tennis grips over these so I dont get cramp. Does anyone know what the maximum number of layers of tape you can get under a ping orange (jumbo)...

    Offputting Offset?

    Hi All Recently, as much as I love my G20 Hybrid, the offset club is really starting to put me off. Is this something you find as you become a better player and clubs with no offset become more appealing to the eye? Mattie
