    Re: The ulitmate golf prize is...

    Yeah when you add the word ‘ultimate’ it really can’t be any one or two off the list

    It would need to be full fitted clubs etc (that you go manufacture HQ to watch being made for you) + clothing, shoes/trolley, bag/balls etc + the tuition (but from a current tour player, on a top 5 course) + get in the ropes that weekend with VIP access thrown in

    Put me down for that please

    (not forgetting you'll have to get me from A to B etc)

So any prize that I could get by just simply getting the credit card out wouldn't be an ultimate prize. But here are some of my ideas for the ultimate prize:

    Partner a top tour Pro in the Dunhill at St Andrews.
    4-ball at Augusta a week before the Masters with Dustin, Beef and Chris Woods.
    A years worth of of coaching from a top 10 coach.
    Weekend away golfing at the Monterrey Peninsula with Trevino, Nicklaus and Player. Imagine the stories that they would have.
    They ebay a spot each year for charity mate. . . . . . . Just a cool £50k this year

    Re: The ulitmate golf prize is...

    Whilst Madadey has summed it up well from one perspective, an alternative would be an all expenses paid SPA holiday for two....that I could give to my wife.
    Whilst she was away I would be free to play the golf I desired 😎
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    Re: The ulitmate golf prize is...

    In my world, prizes are usually a sleeve of balls, a 10 € voucher for the pro shop or an ugly trophy which you have to return by the end of the year, so all of the above sound pretty awesome to me. But let's dream. The ultimate prize for me would be an allround golf coaching weekend, including an assessment and lesson plus on-course lesson with a good swing coach, a club fitting (including a putter fitting), a session with a personal trainer to get a personalized training plan and a session with a mental coach. Put that in a nice location (preferrably sunny), all travel costs covered.

    A bit much? Yeah, maybe ... think I'll just have to be happy with my sleeve of balls for the time being
    In the bag: Cobra FlyZ driver, Cobra Baffler XL 3 & 7 wood, Bridgestone GC 22 ° Hybrid, Cleveland Halo 4 Hybrid, MacGregor V-Foil M455 irons 5 - SW, Cleveland Black 60°, Odyssey White Hot putter
