    Cool Hello! (From the UK)

    Hello everybody.

    Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England.

    Been playing golf for 5/6 plus years, a lot more these days due to giving up football (soccer). Started summer 2016 playing off of 24 (unofficial HC) and am now a rough 18/20.

    Use Benross Quad irons, a Benross Hot Speed fairway 5 wood and a recently acquired Scotty Cameron Studio Style Newport 2 putter (got it second hand for 80!).

    Struggle with using a driver and even though I've seen an improvement in my golf this year, I've also been struggling with some really inconsistent shots in my last couple of rounds; spraying balls left, right and rarely centre.

    Fully addicted to the game though.
