  1. Well depends but if packing all woods (i. E + a 3 and 5 though don't have a driver - use a mini driver sometimes ) then maybe a midish iron for chipping and a pitch iron (use v open if necessary to increase loft)
  2. If people think a 7 wood is good and undiscovered may I dare to suggest you also try higher numbered woods (especially good in soggier conditions) - I hate to admit that I have not only a 9 wood but also an 11,13&15 -( they are metal but would prefer permission!) - sort of equivalent to hybrids I suppose. The 9 is 28* the 11 is 31*, the 13 is 34* & the 15 is 37* - incredibly easy to play!
  3. It was I who resurrected this topic & should be castigated. My theory is the oil will help protect the exposed metal in the tiny indent marks - it is a very light smear that should quickly dissapate from the rest of the face with a wipe with a towel.
  4. I know this is well old - but just got hold of some secondhand MP 32 and the 3 iron had a few rust spots - one a little raised. So FWIW Cleaned it up with very fine steel wool soaked in vinegar (happened to be white wine vinegar but any should do) - lightish scrubbing removed spots and then thoroughly washed in soapy water and dried then applied a very light smear of machine oil. None of other surface seems effected - will have to see how it goes but will possibly reappear as the raised spot was due to v small chip in face.
  5. I have recently taken up golf again after about a 45 year gap. When i first learnt (aged about 15) lifting the left heal was how I learnt. Coming back to golf after all those years I still do it by nature - but apart from assisting in helping turning in the back swing the planting back of the foot is one of the main trigures (at least I think so for me) in initiating the down swing.
  6. I also have a mini driver - taylormade do a 12 & 14 degree version. I got the 12 and can hit off the fairway if a good lie. Calloway do one with an adjustable hosle but a lot more expensive. I have now (mainly) ditched the 3 wood and carry the mini a 5 wood and a 7 wood (love the 7 btw).
  7. This idea may be of use or not - I have a small narrow practice mat which I use in a high ceiling room. Concerned about the divot issue I cut off a section of the front of the mat (about 4 or so inches) and re connected/positioned this to the rest of mat initially using elastic cord*. The practice ball is positioned on the join or just before - the idea is that the cut off portion of the mat will move/fly forward to simulate divot. *the elastic cord broke after a while so don't bother with this and just pick up the loose bit of mat and re-position it after a shot.
