    I need help

    Hi and welcome, to be honest, you are wasting money by buying a driver without getting a couple of lessons.. I have been given the same advice, and to be honest, ignored it, spent a fortune, and not until I had a lessons was I able to have anything resembling a constant strike.. I watched a youtube video not too long ago, where someone was using a 7 iron for most of the game, a 7 can usually get around 150 yards(carry).. A par 5 at say 500 yards, you will be on or near the green in 3, then it's short game.. Takes a fair bit to realise it's your short game that matters more than anything... If you think, a bad chip turns into 2 chips, 1 putt turns into 3 putts, there's 5 shots that should have been 2 or 3.. Hope that helps a bit.. and good luck
  5. Dive on Twitter and give this guy a shout, he's at Chrolton Cum Hardy (Guessing its close) Just been out in Spain with him and 40 guys, a fair few are from the Manchester area

    Just wondering what I can get away with putting in the golf club carry bag ? (RyanAir) Shoes, clothes and Towels ? Or is it just Clubs ?

    New (to me) clubs

    So I got myself a set of Benross Gold Speed (Senior Flex) Irons when I started playing in 2016, bought without advice and for what I thought was a good price (£139, 5-SW).. Well, I've really been enjoying playing with them, but have never felt 100% confident. 2 days ago a friend of mine has had to hang up his bag due to ill health and gave me his old clubs, a set of Callaway x-18's .. So, I literally picked one at random, and very weirdly felt confident with the club, so I went to the range with them, and fired a basket of balls, each swing feeling better and better. I cannot believe how different they feel, how much more confident I feel using them, and more importantly, how much more consistency there was with my shots, possibly a placebo effect, not sure, I just know I will be able to do wonders with them. Am not being delusional, I know that I am still going to have plenty of duff shots, but I believe I will have less duff, and more balls going where I want them to.. ( was also a lot straighter with the shots)... Is it normal that there can be such a difference between clubs and the fact that the feeling of confidence does aid in improving the shots (makes sense that it could)... Any thoughts ?

    How far should golf adapt?

    Amazing.. Knuckle Draggers... People then wonder why golf is perceived to have an "old school" secret handshake type underbelly... Yes, I get incensed about this old school garbage, all these narrow minded committee members need to be encouraged to open their minds or move on...
