    Last of the BA 747's took off today

    Spotted on BBC Breakfast News (at 8.35) that the last 2 British Airways 747 (Jumbos), took off from Heathrow Airport this morning. I live in Cardiff/Newport, so have seen a load of the current 747's parked up at Cardiff Airport. I could not figure if they meant that BA will no longer be flying...

    What distance with less spin

    Just wondered, if I produced around 1000 less spin on the last shot, what distance gain would that equate to. From what I understand, with that spin (3209), the ball tends to climb, and the preferred spin rate people advise is around 2200 I ask, as I am still contemplating replacing my driver...

    New Iron set for under £300

    So, am looking for advice for a set of Irons under £300 (nearer to £200 the better :)). I have been using Ben Ross HTX Irons for the last 3 years (bought Dec 2016), and in the SIM tonight, the head snapped off my 7 iron.

    How to lower launch angle

    With the lock-down, and lucky enough to have a Skytrak, am trying to figure how to reduce my launch angles. At the moment, with my 7 Iron, I am getting upto 155 yds total (carry 135-140 yds), however my launch angle is always quite high. My Ben Ross 7 Iron is lofted at 30.5, with a regular...

    LPGA BMW Championship - UK Coverage

    Noticed that this weekend is the LPGA BMW Championship from Korea, however in the UK (on sky) seems to be limited coverage, as in they are only showing Day 3 and 4. I quite like watching the ladies golf, as it is more similar to my game, than the mens PGA game. Does anyone know if Day 1 and 2...
