  1. 1. Try to reduce hcap ( 14 ) to as close to 10 as I can by longer drives and more consistent approach shots. Less duffs, shanks, thins and 3 putts. Apart from that all is OK. CAC

  8. Mine are in order: 1. Play more golf! aiming for 20 full rounds in 2017 2. Play golf in Ireland to complete my England, Scotland, Wales .... 3. Handicap sub 18 Started with some lessons pre Christmas to work on my swing and consistency and to get me practicing and playing more. Had the first round of the year today which was interesting with a new swing on a pretty long tough course. But there are still 362 days left in the year to work on that 17 handicap

  9. Would like to know if any other of our larger golfers have had the same problem as me I am not small or regular or medium or large but no matter were you go you cannot find golf gear to fit you without ordering and also when you do order 9 out of 10 are black, I would like to inform golf shops and suppliers not all of us larger players walk about in black and golf shops, club shops stock clothes for larger players and wide fitting shoes for people with the wider feet I for one don't want to have to wait everytime I need or would like something new.

  10. Mine this year is simple. Try to enjoy it more. Last few years I have really set some serious goals and worked hard towards them and had some real successes but the lower I have got the less I found I had enjoyed it as the expectation gets higher which is soon followed by frustration.

  11. Hi Pete. Not sure if you've heard anything from anyone but the County Golf League is a decent start for someone from your area. Loads of people from around Sheffield play. We do a round a month and play some cracking courses as part of a league, generally have a matchplay comp and go out and about when the opportunity arises. The website is down at the moment being rebuilt (it will be http://countygolfleague.com/ ) when it's up and running again. We do travel around a bit, first game this year is at Mapperley (Nottingham), I normally organise one near Derby but we do lots up your way. It's free to register and games are usually in the £25 - £35 range on Saturdays or Sundays, and there's usually about 20+ of us. Will keep my eye on this thread and give you a shout when the website is up again (should be 1st Feb) if you're interested.

  12. This has long been a bugbear of mine. I understand the manufacturers position in as much as they want to avoid any bad reviews, the need to protect their reputations and the overriding need to sell ever increasing amounts of equipment to us punters, but, and it's a big but, I feel that the point has been reached where they have become hyper critical to any criticism - and that only benefits them and not us. You only need to see most reviews of the latest drivers. Why do they categorise them into budget, mid range and premium? Simply because if a £90 Dunlop driver is just as good as a £300 Callaway they're going to be pissed off - even worse if it outperforms it. Not really a relevance to the OP, but I would love to see a Which? style mag for equipment, with the magazine buying the kit and independently testing it. Oh to dream..

  13. What makes you thing that all amateur golfers are "average choppers"? What makes you thing that all GolfShake members are "average choppers"? Those are terrible, thoughtless assumptions. Yet another baseless assumption. Where's your evidence for that? You might be hitting it fat, but you have no idea of the effect for anyone else. There is plenty of empiric detail in this thread to show why a glove works.

  14. @uncle chop chp Callaway do pairs that have 'poppers' on the bottom and are very good quality and easy to clean. Worth and try for about £40/ £50 quid.

  15. I think nowerdays since the manufacturing patent for gore tex has expired there will be alot of very good waterproofs around, where as one time GOre Tex was the only way to go. I have a pair of Nike Gore Tex that must be 5 years old which have noe really given up the ghost. I'm going to have to replace them but they have zips and velcro adjusters at the bottm of the legs and I cant seem to find a current pair with the same adjustability. I hate baggy trousers at the bottom,

  16. I didn't wear a glove, not as I didn't like them I just struggle to find ones that fit. I have longish thin hands so they are either to short or to baggy. I am rethinking the glove though! I've always struggled with a strong grip and have noticed this last week or so that with a glove on it makes it easier to weaken the top hand. I assume as the the glove adds extra thickness to the grip in my hand. The glove may stay or I may just get mor tape under my grips!!! Time will tell!!!!! And all this about a glove holding players back is pretty much tosh if you ask me. I expect it may make the kind of marginal difference a pro swinging his driver at 125mph might notice, but the average chopper wont have anywhere near enough control of the clubface to have a glove be the difference. If the clubs turning in your hand its more than likley because your hitting it fat.
