    Re: Turning pro, how tough is it.

    Re: A bad range session. Rant time.

    Happens to all of us. Happens to me frequently. Golf is a game of very small fractions. You'll probably find it's something silly like too much head movement or something. Next time you hit the...

    Poll: Re: Short Game vs Long Game - Golf Debate -

    I have. I think we see it on tour a lot too. Players hacking it into the trees off the tee etc, but still walking away with a par or a bogey at worst, carding a level par round. Ricky Fowler does...

    Re: Flight & Height

    I'm the opposite too. I tend to hit it quite high.

    I know that the most important thing is that the ball goes straight/where you want it to, but there's something satisfying about hitting a club...

    Re: Lithium batteries.

    I've had a non-lithium 18 hole battery on my motocaddy for over 6 years now and it's still giving me 18 holes. You just have to look after it.

    Re: Another Short Game Thread

    I expect to hit most greens in reg. Perhaps miss maybe 4 or 5 a round on an average day. Say 12 greens in reg which i would like to think i should be expecting to hole 3-4 one putts. The other 6...

    Re: Do you really want a hole in one?

    Just to add to this, it's not like i haven't been close. Over those 30 years, i've had the ball sitting on the lip (i mean right on the lip of the hole) several times, just not gone in. Hit the pin...

    Re: Do you really want a hole in one?

    Been playing since i was 12 (so 30 years). I've hit hundreds of thousands of balls and probably played tens of thousands of par 3's.

    Never had a hole in one.

    Re: Another Short Game Thread

    Exactly. Stats can be misleading if looked at in isolation. The reason i think 30+ putts is a lot for me is because i hit a high % of greens in regulation, so i expect my total putt count to be...

    Re: Another Short Game Thread

    I consider myself to be a poor putter, but if i'm over 30 putts for my round i'm disappointed. Anything under 30 is decent IMO.

    Re: Price of new irons

    But i don't think you are getting something worth double the cost. The 5 year old set are going to be just as good.
  19. Re: Which player currently on Tour will have the most majors by 40

    Too early to say about Justin Thomas. From what we've seen so far, I'd say that Spieth and Rory are currently the only ones that have shown the potential to win multiple times.

    Re: Price of new irons

    A 5 year old set of Mizuno irons (new and unused) will set you back around £450. Half the price of today's new ones.

    Re: Where do I start?

    Nice posture at set up.

    The most prominent thing i'm noticing is the whole initial movement away from the ball is a 'roll' with the hands as opposed to a takeaway with the shoulders and arms. ...
