Seem to be a bit unlucky on ebay lately 😐

Ordered and paid for a little Thermos 6 tin cool bag before 7am yesterday, also added Royal Mail 24hr Special Delivery for £7.99.
It didn't turn up this morning but I did receive a proud message this afternoon saying it should soon be in the post, 2nd class.
😅 Got a full refund.

On the plus side, 2 pairs of shorts and 2 polos from County Golf should be here in the morning just in time for the cold, wet weekend 🙂

A new Bushnell GPS watch on eBay. I played this week at Horsham with my TomTom Golfer 1 watch, but the distances were all wrong and it dawned on me that the watch thought I was playing the old 9 hole course which had been revised and expanded three years ago. When I checked with TomTom, it turns out that they have not been adding new courses for some time. Apparently the watch has insufficient memory to allow it ... but they could create the space by removing all the closed courses! Course numbers are going down not up. Grrrr! Hence the new Busnell watch (See photo).

Purchased a set of ping EI irons, to be sent to me in Sweden. Worked out to be reasonable when I factored in buying a travel hard case and shipping cost for mine. So next is a hybrid, wedge, putter and bag ..
Any UK websites willing to post to Sweden??

New putter on the way for me from golfclubs4cash. Just fancy trying something different on the greens as just not getting on with my current putter.

Purchased a rife putter as had a good experience with them previously.
Geurin Rife knows how to make putter that rolls.

Great choice 👌

Lord forgive me, I have sinned. Affordable Golf via Ebay are flogging already-reduced Cobra F9 5 woods with another 20% off so I couldn't resist to the tune of £127.

Here's the link for any fellow sinners: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264672888570 there are 8 remaining.
Been looking at these for a while now and couldn't pass it up when the 20% off came up.
I have to stop spending 😬

Mine arrived today, all nice and shiny with cellophane on. £127 for a brand new wood that's only been out a year is a steal, really. The only thing I don't like is the big Cobra Connect thing adding half an inch to the length that I won't use, but I guess I'll just remember to grip down slightly.

I was looking for a budget stand bag, £100 was feeling a little more than I wanted to pay. Then I noticed Decathlon are in Sweden. So I checked them out, stand bag for 900kr which isn’t bad, the £ is weakening so it looks expensive at £77. So that was ordered in offensive yellow 🙂 plus cap and towel. So next on my shopping list is 5 wood , hybrid , putter and I think a 56 deg wedge. Which should be enough clubs .. I have decided on a Wilson staff L putter. The hybrid needs to be matched to my 5 iron distance +10, so I think I might be trying those out. The 5 wood .. may be get a g400/410 or TM not sure see what takes my fancy. 56 degree wedge could be anything from titleist or Cleveland .. might try others

A pair of Greg Norman shorts (1st ever item of clothing from his brand) plus a pair of Under Armour shorts arrived today. Happy to report both are a nice relaxed fit for golf.
A Ping polo, slightly on the small size but OK, and an Under Armour polo, perfect fit.

County Golf were a day or 2 slower than their normal despatch time (no issues with that) but delivery was still the 48 hr tracked so very happy with that.

Some Taylormade TP5x in yellow, and a Scotty Cameron Newport to try out. Nothing wrong with my current putter (Odyssey O works) but fancy trying a Scotty.

I got a Greg Norman windproof top as it was in the shop when the previous pro was leaving and I had to get my shop credit down. It's a nice fit and excellent quality so I think youll be fine with them. The clothing brand has been going for decades so they must do something right. In fact in all honesty it is perhaps an underrated clothing brand

Some new Adidas Kaiser 5 rubber stud football boots ready for pre season training in the morning.
Gonna be tough 🤮
How is that working if you don't mind me asking? Our Sunday are wondering how and when to start training together. We're currently thinking about meeting in two or three different locations since you can only have up to 6 people I think. Or we go to the same place but split into distinct groups of 6 for 3v3 games or something like that.

I wore the Greg Norman shorts this evening, yes very very good quality.
For some silly reason I've always been put off by the logo, ridiculous I know but true.
I think I'll investigate what other items they have.

I'm not 100% sure mate.
One of the lads works with the F.A. and is running it, all I know is it's like you said, maximum groups of 6 with no contact.
Looks like its going to lash it down as well 🙉
