    Scarcroft Vs Woodhall Hills

    So, further to my recent post regarding Play More Golf, the two local courses to me that offer this are Scarcroft and Woodhall Hills. Both the same price, but Scarcroft is a lot more points per round than Woodhall Hills (9 vs 5 at most expensive, except comps when they are both 9). As I've not...

    Does anybody here use Playmoregolf for their club membership? I’m looking at joining Scarcroft as soon as my missy gets a new job (was made redundant at the beginning of the Covid crisis) and was wondering how much the extra points cost? Thanks

    Does anyone know where you can get touch up paint for a TaylorMade Spider Black putter? I've emailed TaylorMade but had no response. I've thought of model paint but it doesn't exactly match

    Abu Dhabi Hero Challenge

    Just watching the Hero Challenge that I recorded from earlier, and the atmosphere looks cr@p! Looks like they dragged in people off the street who would rather be anywhere but there. Not a great advert for the European Tour.

    Which End of the Bag

    So I was sat here trying to get some work done but my mind kept wandering back to the following: If you have a set amount of money, say £250, that would get you either a new driver, or new SW & LW, which would you go for, and also which make/model (I appreciate this is somewhat subjective)? I...

    Estimating Clubhead Speed

    Does anyone know of a reasonably accurate method for estimating driver clubhead speed based on the clubhead speed data for other clubs? I have Flightscope data for several irons and a hybrid from a gapping session, and would like to estimate my driver clubhead speed if possible.

    Winter Distances

    Went to the driving range this afternoon and was hitting the ball quite well, nice slight fade, but the Toptracer figures were around 15 yards shorter than my normal distance for each (done with Flightscope on the same range, so the balls are consistent). The flightscope distances were done...

    Chris Kirk

    Sad to hear about his struggles with alcohol addiction but glad to see he has sought help and seems to be on the road to recovery. Looking forward to seeing him tee it up next week, and will be rooting for him to do well, but he's already a winner in my book.

    Arccos Caddie with Cobra Connect Worth It?

    I’ve just bought a set of Cobra King F8 irons, which come with Arccos Caddie sensors built into the grips, and spare screw-in ones for the rest of my clubs. Sounds great until you find out it’s only a 3-month free trial and then it costs £100 a year. As I only play about once a month I’m...

    Home Opens

    Thinking about the European Tour rule that states that if a player misses his home open, he has to play 3 additional tournaments to make up his minimum requirement, doesn’t this discriminate against English players, since the isn’t an English Open? Perhaps when theY brought back the...

    Corded Grips

    Back in the day I used to have Golf Pride half-coed grips on my clubs, the ones which were corded all the way down at the rear and just rubber at the front. I have been using the MCC grips currently but don’t really like them, and was just wondering what other corded grips people use
