Yeh definitely makes a difference and there is no dispersion issues , love the engage wedges , just opened these fresh heads a few weeks ago to get shafted. Only got 1 more set of heads to go then will need to find new offerings 🤪

Well the highlight for this season was winning our 4 man team event with a gross of -9 ,

Hopefully after a full recovery this year will be back to playing a decent level of golf

Some very good golf played , and managed to take the straightest drive by landed on the line 😂

First thing I did was go straight to the pro shop and swap the bag for some new shoes and balls.

This is the cause of falling out with my f7 and hitting my crossover literally like 5 yards shorter , had a spare

Aeroburner 15* 3 wood head tour issue

And a spare (my favourite shaft) Fujikura pro 85 tipped 1"

Had it built to 42"

Will be out on Friday for a test ,

Was my favourite 3 wood for years

Well had an iron fitting during the week and tried lots of different clubs , the model I went for shocked me and shocked my fitter ,

I'll keep the make and model to myself until they get here

Can't wait to put them to the test

Yes, is the simple answer, I was struggling to finish a round with the pain in my elbows and hips. Now I can play as much as I want. I used to play 5 times a week with a few range sessions , I reckon I could do this again thanks to graphite

What do you call home in Perth?

I also have arthritis in my wrists and thumb joints so switched to graphite in my irons which helped. Moving to midsize grips also helped and I actually prefer a midsize grip now despite having small hands.

I'm at Dundonald.

Ping G 5 wood - Diamana Whiteboard 80

Ping G400 3 Crossover - 19

Ping i200 4-W + U Alta CB shafts

Cure RX4  putter or an RX5 (depending on my mood!)
