Partner, you might want to consider another option, that is to forgive your bad shots rather than getting forgiving clubs Laughing

We should play together more often. It'll be like going for confession. A heck of a lot of forgiving going on.

nothing but respect for Kian, but I am having lessons to improve my golf not to beat him.

I couldn't hit driver in my last golf game, and still struggling to find the swing at the range. With some spare time this week figured I should go for back to back lessons in 2 days to try and sort that out before playing on Friday and Sunday this week.

Usually it gets worse before it gets better and I am not really certain how the upcoming two lessons will turn out as its under a new coach. But golf is a roller coaster ride. I am hitting good iron shots but very poor tee shots and poor short selection around the greens. Have to improve before Feb 8 or I will be letting my partner down against a tough matchup with Duval and Hardrock.

I'll get a head start and remain quiet from today onwards.

A Master of Many taught me yesterday to hit 3 X 7 iron and one putt for par rather than 3wood and short iron for an attempted GIR with a possible bogey outcome.

I agree. Especially off black - no point taking big risks for GIRs. Just play safe. But golf is a messed up sport - you want to prove to yourself that you can hit it like Tiger, look like Camilio and be rich like the entire tour put together so you go all out.

Any thoughts? Ping G20 or Titleist 910D2, in terms of getting the ball in the middle of the fairway? Dispersion ahead of distance.

just to think out of the box...ever consider teeing off using fairway wood rather than driver ?

the last game i have, i found 12 fairway, excluding all par 3 holes, i only miss 1 fairway, and that is the only time i use my driver....btw, my FW and driver distance are equally short...haha

Why should the fairway wood be a better choice? Today's drivers are bigger, with a bigger sweetspot.

Wouldn't it be easier to hit than a fairway wood. Does that 4-5* difference in loft between your driver and FW make that much difference in shot accuracy??

TS,

ASthetically, the G20 looks ugly to me. The Titty is very traditional looking which sutits me more.

On a seperate note, having not played with you, I can only relate my own personal experience to you.

I always thought it was the equipment. So i was on the quest of looking for the "ultimate" piece of eqipment that could imporve my game. Vietnam is very hard to find various brands so I resorted rummaging through my friends golf bags to try clubs. MAybe hit a few good shots with their clubs but soon everything went back down the drain. conversly, they would try mine and have no problems hitting it except with maybe an issue to the flex in the shaft.

Food for thought......
