Just got back from Sentosa where we are helping the tour guys with gripping and loft and lie adjustment.

Many of the pros were hitting balls in the hot afternoon sun....

jeff is there today and i think he will change 400 grips by day end.

Well done, Eric!!

All old liao lah. Got new tech called double side tape. This new grip allows us to relax our grip completely just like what my pro taught me in the beginning Razz

everything from golf pride is there....also pros can ask for grip master (leather).

spoke to a few of them when i was there...they told me that the rough is not as long as last year but everything else is the same. the first guy i ran into was Chapchat and surprise surprise, he is shorter than me...haha

i will be going to sentosa at about 2 plus tomorrow. if anyone wants to have a peep, please let me know so that i can sneak you in.

we learned quite a few things today...like most of the better established pros have teams from the tour vans to take care of their clubs. while who do not have a sponsorship are not so lucky. Jeff took a loft and lie reading of a prominent chinese player today and was shocked to learn the loft and lie was all over.

this player really have to rely on his talents if his equipment is in such a stage.

oh btw jeff told me he has no fingerprints left. he left all his skins on the tour players' grip.

glad you guys had fun...groveballer, jeffgoh and "i".

Hi DGman,

It was an eye opener, thanks for the opportunity! My view of the pros in layman terms, i would say easy swing, let the clubs do the job and see the ball fly.

so did the prominent player get his loft and lie adjusted in the end? or is he going to play as how it is now.

Of course he had them bend after he was told the irregularities and their results which he concurred was some of his problem.

speaking of which, it will not be a bad idea for you to bring in your irons and have them adjusted to the same specs as LWC...at least you will have an excuse for your loss tomorrow.
