How long do you spend at the range Weets?

I get sooooo bored after 10 mins

i used to love practicing on the Range for hours, short, long, bunkers etc 8hrs a day sometimes

Now a small bucket and I’m bored. I’d rather be out playing but don’t have the time usually.

Yeah 100

Would probably be something like 70:30 full swings to pitches. I hit pitches to start to warm up as well as during the session.

Committed! I hit about 60 in maybe 20 minutes and I'm done.

Placegetter and I could well be at the range for 8 hours if I had a leave pass for that long.

Mind you, we would have only gone through a small bucket between us in that time because he is the person who I have decided off my own thinking is the best golfing man I know at the moment.

Yeah - but as I have all the natural golfing ability of a house brick I have to grind it out

And I'm a glutton for punishment

I wouldn't call it pressure, but through the gentle use of his subtle, passive-aggressive tone, I have come to realise that I was incorrect

A house brick would still take Mick to the 18th in a match, so I date say you've got the brick covered by some margin.

Lol - that's a very good description of PG's expression of his hurt feelings

Nice of you to come around

After more than a decade of range sessions including times I hit over 300 balls I'd hope I have him

Took me over a decade of playing to break 100 so my natural chops aren't too good
