 Great analogy!
I would guess that we're talking about the amount of friction required to stop a ball slipping on the clubface for a given impact. Once you've reached the necessary level, however the face is treated, making it rougher won't make any difference. If a simple, raw face, even w/o grooves or milling is enough for that point to be reached, I'm not sure doing anything else is going to make any difference. Which seems to be what's being said here. Usual smoke and mirrors from the...
Great quote that. Where have all the great statesmen and politicians gone?
Ah. Of course! Easter vacation for U.K. schools... Seriously? Hang on to the result last year. That's usual though isn't it? As long as we beat England? Let me know when you manage to beat one of the Southern Hemisphere big boys.I'll leave you with......The Telstra Stadium, 2003. Wilkinson off his right foot, thank-you very much.   Back on topic. Bubba's a bit much sometimes but I've warmed to him this year. Seems a decent enough guy who plays some pretty unique golf. Who...
Hmm. Guess you and your friends have never achieved anything much and never suffered any massive loss. What men you all must be!
Whoops! Just goes to show one should check facts like this before posting! Sorry about that. USGA confirms No Brainer is OK (https://www.usga.org/ConformingGolfClub/conforming_golf_club_results.asp). R&A site doesn't list the No Brainer in its Non-conforming List so looks OK. Think I was getting in a tangle with the LB 130...
^^^^ I seem to be similar. I often feel I put a better swing on it when I can see my shadow. Not sure why...
I'm with the  program. On my second DCT driver (1st cracked - replaced F.O.C.) and I really like the fairway woods as well. Mess about with a few fairway woods but, tbh, the DCT driver is as good a head as I've ever hit. Fairly traditional shape, deep-faced and 440cc (looks even smaller with its deep face). In fact, the current invocation I have in the bag of 10.5° with a lovely Graphite Design YSQ shaft is a bit of a revelation for me. Low spinning before it became the...
Took me maybe 4 years. Started as an 11-12 y/o and was sub-10 hcp by about 15. Obviously it depends on the person and savael, above, has pointed you to some great info. It takes a lot of practice (unless you're stupidly gifted) to learn and hone a solid, fundamentally sound swing. If you do that though (and you've decent hand-eye coordination anyway), it'll stay with you. I've been sub-5 hcp since ~18 y/o and I'm now a 48 y/o (ouch!) but the lowest I've ever been even...
Not my regular ball but I've tried them quite a bit and, given I've never been a big Callaway ball fan in the past, I rated them very highly. Good value, as long as any other 'Tour'-level ball, great spin into the greens and the feel, for me at least, was very good - soft on the chips and putts. Nice, bright white as well which didn't appear to colour to any degree. Good cover resilience when hit with a full wedge. Overall, I didn't find anything in there not to recommend...
