    Re: Hybrids & Hookers

    ball position and a smooth swing should help. Ball just forward of centre and don't try to "kill it". I used to put the ball too far forwards and loose rhythm with my hybrids and the result was a...

    Re: Jumbo putter grip

    love the Wynn over size grip on my putter. Much better feel in the hands than the SuperStroke. Putting has improved big time since making the move.

    Re: Meon valley

    reasonable course - but can get very wet and boggy. If there has been a good amount of rain ahead of going there, make sure your shoes are leak proof and tied on tightly :-)

    if you are getting into the game in a more regular way - I'd have the pro look over your swing and check out your current clubs with the technology. If they are there or there abouts - stick with...

    Re: Titleist pro v1x alternative

    played with a low handicapper recently who had been given a pack of Vice Pro Plus. He normally plays Pro V1x and felt that the Vice were a great match for them. I tried one and have to agree!

    Re: How much?!?!

    When it comes to the "special" shaft options, I guess they cease to be mass produced and are therefore more costly. Still a lot to pay out, but the higher price is not that much of a surprise. We...

    have seen the Vlog from Rick Shiels on these and they do look good. They match the Pro V across all performance measures and come in at a fraction of the cost!

    Re: high lofted hybrids

    I have a Titleist 24 degree that is ramped up to 25.5 degrees to replace my 4 iron and it is absolutely super! Fills a gap and so easy to hit.

    go with the new grips. If you are changing to the same make model of grip - just change those on the clubs that you use most if you want to keep the costs down. On changing clubs, I'd seriously want...

    Re: Wet grips

    not much wrong with new Tour Velvets to be honest. A dry(ish) towel under the umbrella to wipe them with and a pair of rain gloves will go a long way to helping, but nothing is a perfect solution!

    Re: Gap in the top of my bag

    I'd go the Hybrid route to be honest. If you have access to technology, choose a club/loft that fills the gap - could be anywhere from 19 to 24 degrees depending on how your swing performs.

    sometimes they just need a change. Success of the new bag man/woman will depend on Rory's willingness to take their input on board in the heat of competition.
