    Vanity Set Of Irons

    I've got some Mizuno Jpx 919 Yours, love the clubs and was fitted into them tbf, but no question my 19 handicap would appreciate something a splash more forgiving from time to time... Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Stableford Scoring System

    Sorry, I must be missing your point here. The UK stableford basically says playing to handicap equals 36 points (2 points per hole). Stableford is never played on a scratch format ( no handicap). The frequency of a net birdie or net par doesn't really have a relevance as far as I can see. What...

    Stableford Scoring System

    It's not though, in golf a shot is a shot is a shot. Otherwise your handicap can't apply either. Does a net birdie on a hole you get a handicap stroke on count for 8,even though you got a stroke, but a hole you net birdied with no stroke only 4? It has to be a point per extra shot. Sent from...

    Stableford Scoring System

    In the UK we use stableford for a lot of comps and most people use it for friendly matches for sure. The scoring is a bit different (net bogey 1, par 2, birdie 3, eagle 4 etc) but it is a great way to play across handicaps as it means high handicappers who have a blow up hole can still be in the...

    Which putter grip do you use?

    I was standard, moved to claw in December and am putting of much better than before. Much better rhythm and consistency of strike

    Asking to have the flag put back in once it has been taken out, immediate 1 stroke penalty.

    Shot Scope

    My SS definitely misses strokes during the round. I don't take practice swings and I think that is the main problem, the advice seems to be 2 practice swings per shot to ensure it registers the club.

    Do you have different golf bags? Stand / Cart / Hybrid?

    I'm just in this conundrum. I have a mizuno cart and stand bag at the moment, I carry approx 50% and use my clicgear the other 50%. The stand bag is getting worn, so am thinking of investing in a new stand bag and just using that for everything,generally simplifying everything. Next problem is...

    Removing clubs to mix it up

    A friend of mine played a comp this weekend with only 3 clubs and a putter as it was carry only due to the weather (I'm in the UK) and his back won't let him carry a full set. Came home with 30 stableford points and really enjoyed the challenge, so a good idea to mix it up for sure.

    Golf Gloves - How Much Effort?

    I'm always amazed by people that don't use a glove in good working condition. They are only $10-$20 usually, and given the amount of money people spend on everything else in golf having an old / worn glove makes no sense to me. Also, when buying one, the difference between cheap and expensive...

    Something For The Golfer Who Has Everything Almost

    You've just got to ask yourself which club would you leave out of the bag for it?

Putted really well, which makes a big change for me. Hopefully this...
