  1. Hi everyone I have been thinking of putting a new(for me) set of irons together and have naturally been doing some background research into what length to have the shafts. I am 6'2" and still growing, btw. I came across a website which held measurements for traditional 70s lengths which led me to think, why not play them this length now? Surely it would lead to a more compact and controlled swing? Furthermore I have always been recommended/fitted for plus size shafts and found them to feel unwieldy, which in the long irons is a very bad feeling. I was just wondering

  3. Hi everyone As part of a qualification in school I need to identify an area of Welsh heritage and culture to try to promote, so I made a video/advertisement. My video editing skills aren't great (rather terrible) but we weren't giving a lot of notice so I threw it together in order to get it out there quicker Please can you spare a minute to watch it and maybe leave a comment on YouTube or maybe on this thread. Thanks in advance to all the watchers Zach http:// youtu.be/RtDouANULwk
  4. @BZCDR do you mean that the ferrules would cost $38? :-P surely get them from another shop 12 for $5 ;)
  5. Personally I'm always looking around for classic Wilson irons on eBay (if it's the irons you have) and sell for maybe £40-£100 depending on condition
  6. I have previously toyed with the idea of buying into the S series but didn't have the money at the time, during my research I looked at the Maltby playability factor, and by that formula S58s are in the game improvement area in terms of COG etc. I have no experience hitting them though so possibly someone else could help you out there :)
  7. I have decided to overhaul my bag in exchange for lessons which are badly needed. I am pretty much decided that in my 'new' bag will be a V-steel 3 or 4 wood, Cleveland sand wedge and an old Odyssey 2 ball. The dilemma comes to the irons and big stick. Having surfed on Ebay I found that I can get my hands on a set of MX-17s or an old set of titleist CBs for very cheap. As far as the driver is concerned, I have no idea. I was thinking maybe a taylormade R5 model or an older titleist model? I was just wondering if anyone could recommend an old set of irons or recommend a go
  8. Starting work on 5SK to get a solid swing together over the winter ready for start of next season to nail a good HCP :D
  9. I shall set the scene: I had not been golfing too long, had just put a decent swing together but was still not hitting good shots often enough. So it is the first time I had played my home course, in the middle of the 8th fairway with the 15th running parallel left. I saw a group on the green, preceded to line up and once they were far enough away I hit probably the cleanest shot I had until then, about 20 ft from the hole. Rather pleased with myself I turn round to my playing partner who was in tears... I think you can guess what had happened ;)

  11. Gary Player - very humble beginnings so he has never taken anything in life for granted. Plus I am just fascinated by his life story and he has a fantastic personality. Now he has retired, his charity work is nothing short of admirable. Of the programs I have seen, he seems to be such a genuine person
  12. Hi all Need some useful exercises to acutually get myself into the gym and then to carry on with a decent twice a week routine, golf orientated obviously. I was also thinking to keep myself supple by taking up yoga?
  13. I found an old putter in my garage, belonged to my grandfather. The chrome has mostly chipped away so has seen better days, but it putts fantastically. I was going to paint it matte black and adding on alignment aids. Is the paint job recommended or will it affect performance?
