    New vs Old Drivers?

    My persimmon 2 wood is the straightest club i've ever hit. (if you classify it as a driver) I don't think you'll find a huge difference in forgiviness between the older drivers but the newer ones are lighter, more aerodynamic and a lot of them are adjustable. If your going to invest in a newer driver I'd buy a new one. This is kinda like laptops, is there much a difference between a laptop a couple of years ago to the newest version? They all can use the same programs and get the job done except the newer ones are slightly faster, have more memory and have free toys that come with them.

    Favorite graphite shaft and why.

    I don't agree with all this hype about shafts. If your striking the ball well you'll get a good shot. A shaft won't magically make you hit it better. I know with the pro's they fine-tune their shafts for ideal height and spin, but I don't think most of us hit it long enough for the shafts to make a difference. I hate how people go on about different brands of shafts. If you get the flex and kick roughly the same there shouldn't be a huge difference. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Will Americans wins 3 or more Majors in 2011?

    I don't know too many golfers from Antarctica, or South America. South Africa is a former British colony so golf is pretty big their but not in the rest of Africa. Europe, Asia and Australia all fall under the umbrella of the European tour so they're Europeans. The American's will probably win the U.S Open, a European will probably win the Open. It's a toss-up between the other two. I'm calling 3-1 to Europe.

    The REAL Fiasco at the PGA - Fans wearing Golf Shoes!

    Your in Australia, it's actually dry there. Irish (and British) weather is rain, rain, rain and more rain. No point ruining your trainers when you can wear waterproof golf shoes.

    3-Wood off a tee

    a 1 wood is another name for a driver. I've heard of a 2 1/2 wood but haven't seen one. A friend of mine had a 9 wood, I guess these were the old hybrids to replace long irons? you could probably make a full set out of old woods, would be interesting! another friend of mine had a cobra 6/7 iron, don't see the point in it though

    3-Wood off a tee

    I hit my driver off the tee on most holes at my course. There is one hole that is drive-able but you have to play a blind shot over some trees, so I normally take the safe option and my 2 wood off the tee. Also if it's windy I'll just hit a low stinger off the tee with the 2W. I'm not a massive hitter at my club but still longer than most at around 230 yards off the tee, which is pretty short on this forum.

    Lee Westwood - World number 1

    Els is only a 3 time major champion. Molinari Brothers are only some of the biggest stars in Europe. WGR isn't everything

    Help, need a work out routine...

    Running seems like your only option for aerobics if you can't work out at home
