  1. Just got a new pair of Puma ignite discs but I’ve never had a shoe with Boa before. What’s the best way to clean these? Can you damage the boa by getting it covered in polish, water, sprays etc?
  2. Got an awesome gift at Christmas in the form of a lesson with either Rick Shiels or Peter Finch. I’m a big fan of both with Rick edging it. Due to the availability it’s looking like Finch is easier to get booked in with. Has anyone had a lesson with him that can let me know how it went or whether I should hold off for Rick??
  3. New driver

    Decided to go for the titleist 917 driver and had the fitting a couple of months back. During the fitting I was fitted for a stiff shaft, draw face and draw weight. Had a lesson last night and hitting more of a fade now. Would the slight swing change knock the settings all out??
  4. Looking at a new driver and 3 wood and have been fitted for both models. Both stats came out roughly the same but the fitter recommended the titleist being half inch shorter if I choose that one. My irons are 1.5 inches longer with being 6ft 5” but what’s the advantage of the shorter driver shaft and what’s people’s thoughts if they had to pick one of the above??
  5. Not hit balls for 2 weeks

    Just range time at the moment due to snow!
  6. Is it just me or does anyone else have it when they don’t hit balls for 1-2 weeks that they feel like they’ve lost their swing a bit? Starting to think my muscle memory is shocking.
  7. New driver

    Hit the ping demo tonight and it felt amazing! Titleist demo next week and they’ve got their work cut out for them. Clubrat, Scotland’s not in the dark ages. We have fitting centres and trackman!
  8. New driver

    So I’m looking for a new driver for next season. Currently playing a Callaway X2 hot but I’ve narrowed the new driver down to the Ping G400, Titleist 917 or the Taylormade M2. Any thoughts on which one is best or the order which you’d go for?
  9. Cleaning the irons after today’s round and picked what I thought was a bit of dirt off one of the iron shafts but it seems to have been a bit of the shaft coating. Can this cause any problems and what could have caused this to start to come away?
  10. Must have hit a rock or pebble and noticed a small nick out of my Apex 5 iron sole. Is this worth bugging out or will it smooth itself out over time? Silly question but will this nick cause any playability issues with it being on the sole and being a forged club? The ball flight seemed lower yesterday but that could well have been me mis hitting it instead of the club.
  11. Lost the love

    Thanks all. Been having a think the last day or so and realised the moment I decided I'd had enough. Played a course which is usually the easiest in the area and had a nightmare on it. Maybe I went into it a bit too cocky and it backfired on me and carried forward to a few rounds after. At least I've identified it now I guess!
  12. Lost the love

    Going to be around a full month now.
  13. Lost the love

    Hit a slump in the game last month and decided to take a break for a bit. Went to the range tonight to hit a few and get back into it but stopped early as I couldn't be bothered to finish the basket and don't know when I'll be playing next. Actually thinking do I want to play again which I hope is nonsense as I've loved it since starting out 6 years ago and it quickly became an addiction. Any tips on how to get the love back for the game?
  14. Fade or draw?

    Very valid point! Lol. Would a fade mean I'm coming over the top tho?
