  1. No golf again for 6 weeks while we are in a lockdown, it was announced today that golf courses would have to close again after 48 hours of discussions between the golfing union of Ireland and the government. The golfing union of Ireland have let us down badly, it is easy to prove how golf is one of the safest activities out there and is the only outlet for so many people. I don’t know what I’m gonna suck at for the next 6 weeks 😂😂, in all seriousness though, devastated with the news today.
  2. I put mid 80’s although realistically that is probably a very good day lately. My expectations are high, I go out with the intention of breaking 80 even though my best is still 83. I’m not happy with anything over my handicap of 15. I’m not happy with my handicap at all to be honest. I feel I should be a lot lower by now especially with my distance
  3. Absolutely no problem with it, in Ireland we curse/swear a lot, I mean an awful lot. It’s very much normal, maybe it’s a blatant disregard for a language forced upon us but for whatever reason we do it a lot, so I wouldn’t even notice it let alone have a problem.
  4. Its more to do with those comments, I'm only surmising but it seems as if he thinks its over himself which is understandsble with his injuries etc. I hope I'm wrong, I'd love to see him win another but with the strength of the field now and his coming to an end I just can't see it, but like you said i likely would have said the same thing before the masters win
  5. I think he is asking a valid questiin, Tiger made some comments about ageing and it seems as though he is having doubts, I genuinely can't see him winning another major although id love to be wrong. If you gave me 10k to bet on him winning a major again or not, I would 100% put the money on him not winning another and that is no disrespect to everything he hss done in tne game, he is the Goat
  6. Holy incestuous role play mind games Batman
  7. Its an extra stiff 9 degree driver, not sure on the weight though
  8. I must post a video in my swing thread of hitting driver. I managed to win the comp at my home course the other day and I didnt hit a good drive until the 15th hole, I've lost all confidence with it. I'm not even hitting the centre of the face at all. I refuse to put it away and hit a 3 or 5 wood though, I'd feel like I'm giving up
  9. I abamdoned this experiment fairly quick. One bad hook scared me away lol but really what @iacas said about my grip being perfectly normal was enough to realise a grip change wasn't going to solve any problems.
  10. Played friday and won the open for the day, 37 stablefored points. Didnt actually play very well, scratched 3 holes and 4 putted a par 3 early on. I had 9 pars though soit was enough to win. I got cut a shot though so I'm off 14.7 now
  11. Ya it's quite surprising considering how easy it feels to play a round but ya, its a 6 mile walk at least with hills etc and with all the added swinging and pushing a cart for 3-4 hours it all adds up to a decent calorie burn.
  12. We all walk in Ireland, it is never too hot, quite the opposite really. I use a push cart, I like the extra calorie burn, I’m trying to get lean at the moment and two rounds a week burns an extra 2-3000 calories so it has added benefits
  13. Tried my regular grip today again to compare, couldn’t hit a fairway, I think I hit 3 all day. Not sure what to do.
  14. Strangely and this is probably due to some other underlying problem with my swing but I felt I hit the ball straighter with it, I never really noticed a height difference if I am honest so it must have been similar. My driver was straighter for definite and distance was the same once struck well but this is all from just one round so it is really impossible to tell for sure yet. I think i find it easier to square the face because with my regular grip I always fought with rolling the face open and then having to try square it up so this probably is a band aid really.
  15. You could be right, I’d like to try it for a while though. I used it today for the first time for a round. I shot exactly my handicap, 16 over. My ballstriking was better I thought, I had a few three putts and a couple of bad pitches that would have dropped that score by 4-5 strokes. I was especially pleased with my driver, after the first few it started to go really well and I had 9 drives that I would be happy with and that is very good for me. It probably is a band aid but I’ll give it a shot for a few rounds anyway and see how it goes. Out of interest what do you think m
