    Limited Edition Cobra Bag For Sale

    I should say, it's AS used by Rickie Fowler, not the exact one he used. I'm looking for £500 for this.
  11. I was lucky enough to win this bag in a competition online, but it's far too nice for a hacker like me and I would like to try and sell it and invest in some new irons. It's a limited edition Cobra X Vessels Tour Stand Bag, made specifically to celebrate this years Open at Carnoustie and was used by Rickie Fowler. Brand new and unused. Roughly only about 10 of these in the world. Specifications: Four-way top with designated dividers and top grab handle Carbon fiber stand legs Full-length umbrella sleeve Seven pockets including an oversized apparel pocket, lockable valuables pocket and dual insulated cooler pockets Single carry strap and hip pad with COOLFLOW foam EASYFlex base allowing maximum turf contact COBRA x VESSEL Collaboration Payment via either PayPal goods and services or cash on collection. Can be delivered but would have to confirm the price.

    #LeafGate - thoughts ?

    This came back to my thoughts at the seniors open when Mark James smashes a bird on the 17th and flies sideways OB and takes 7 on the hole, surely it's the same problem moving object be it a leaf or bird diverts the ball sideways yet one is replayable NO penalty and the other he gets a penalty. RULES ARE RUBBISH.

    Trolley batteries

    You should be able to use the charger that came with the trolley, mines broken now so I bought a 4 amp charger from motosave for £20. Works fine.
  21. With a nod to Having just come out of a 15 - 20 year golf retirement I'm astonished to find how technology within the game has developed. I was last playing when metal woods were in vogue and peripheral weighted was the golfing panacea. Apart from clubs, balls have moved on a bit to and I thought I'd better check out some of these new cheap distance balls, given that I can still wreck a round by flying balls into deep undergrowth and lakes (distance balls go a long way in haha). So I've had a go at Wilson Smartcore, Srixon soft feel and Pinnacle gold having read up on what's around on the net and what I could get cheap Wilsons seemed to go tolerably well off the tee but hitting a superb recovery shot onto the green they'd run for miles and go off the other side. I don't think Srixon's were far behind them but I do seem to get a better result with Pinnacles. The problem with Pinnacles is they really accentuate my poor tee shots (usually a slice), as do the Srixon's but to a lesser degree. I'm playing on short pay-to-play courses that are economically watered in these incredibly dry conditions at the moment. Consequently greens are pretty hard. Yesterday I nipped to my local and did a bit of putting and chipping. The Wilson is a bit clunky while the Pinnacle has a much softer feel but the Wilson also seems to take much less borrow than the others. Chipping all three over short distances seemed to produce fairly similar results, the Wilson might run a foot more than the Srixon which might run a foot more than the Pinnacle. Over half a dozen or so rounds I've got my score down from 111 to 91 so I'm obviously getting a bit more control but the challenges I might still face are to hit a Pinnacle off the tee but control my swing better or try to hit more than 2 out of 16 greens and use a Wilson and one club shorter to allow for more run. Either way it comes back to a proper controlled golf swing which I can't quite get my head round yet However, I'm still experimenting and improving so I'll keep using these balls until I have a prospect of keeping a single ball for a full round at which time I might go upmarket So, so far, Wilson's off the tee, Pinnacles around the green. Would have expected Srixon's to be better but maybe they'll be the better choice when I can play a bit better. Of course, there's no science here, just feel haha

    Trolley batteries

    Thanks for the comment. Does it use the charger that came with the trolley or do you need a different charger?

    Trolley batteries

    For 36 holes with a lead acid battery you should be looking for 33ah or more. My battery is 33ah pro rider. I bought it on ebay for £44 and it does 36 holes on a hilly course with plenty of power to spare.
  24. good day fellow golfers... i am looking for golf societies local to me (morden surrey) or no more than 10-15 miles away.. i am unfortunately not the most fittest person in the world..and always require a buggy to be able to play 18 holes.. i am also recovering from a replacement shoulder( now hopefully recovered) and have not played for 4 years.. i used to be a 12 handicapper but now am back to square one but need to try and reclaim some sort of handicap and need to be able to play and am looking forward to spending my retirement attempting to get back to a certain level where i can please help an ailing old golfer. i do drive so travelling is not an issue. thankyou fellow golfers paul dulake

    St Andrews Golfshake Society

    I have been extremely fortunate to have lived in this historic old town for the past two years, reveling in the unique atmosphere of the place, from the golfers, students, and tourists. Not to mention playing the incredible courses and sharing them with others. It's a remarkable spot. But I am keen to combine that with my role as Digital & Social Editor at Golfshake. Launching the St. Andrews Golfshake Society! My hope is that this page develops into an online community for golfers who love St Andrews. You can be a resident, local club member, a regular visitor, or just someone who has an appreciation for the Home of Golf. This Golfshake Society is intended to become a hub to discuss the town and its courses, sharing thoughts and memories. We'd also be keen to encourage golfers to meet up for rounds, helping visitors to enjoy the full experience, and create a sense of togetherness between users of Golfshake within the game's most iconic destination. There is potential to develop regular games and record those on the Golfshake Score Tracker. But I need to see if there is any interest. So, please sign up to the Forum and state if you would like to get involved with the St Andrews Golfshake Society. Should this be a success, there is scope to start a variety of these Groups across towns and regions throughout the UK & Ireland. Thanks and I hope to see you on the Links, Kieran Clark

    Trolley batteries

    Hiya guys & girls I’m new on here. I’m after some advice, I’ve just got a second hand pro rider electric golf trolley told by seller battery does 36 holes only to find it barely does 18. I play on a relatively hilly course and just wondering what AH battery would be best to be able to get round 18 holes easily without turning speed up and down all the time to conserve power on my battery to make it last. Any feed back is appreciated Thanks.
