So were you looking at one of the new (soon to be superseded, if they haven't been already) "M something or other" drivers, and were the figures impressive (even by your lofty standards) ?


Hi mate. There was quite a range of equipment as you'd expect. Interestingly he couldn't really get me to part with my long irons. I need a new wedge anyway so may we'll pick one up. The driver, well, what's impressive look like?

Driver swing speed measured at 112mph, but about a foot before the ball I was peaking at 117mph. Honestly, I have no idea how to fix it. He mentioned something about practice, but I was dozing off before he finished the sentence.

The club I was absolutely most interested in, and I thought I would never want a new one, was the putter. Who knows what Santa will bring.......

Basking in my own advice elsewhere to take a break from golf I'm dropping in here to share that I didn't miss a single fairway today or pull a single putt. Tuning up quite well for the October game at NSWGC really can't wait to get to it now. Just a little more tapering to go.

Hi mate. I play almost every second month. Loving it. Played February 26 to sneak in on that 8 week cycle but had also played a sneaky 9 early January so basically I had to slow it down a bit. Been to the range also, took a bit of recovering from. As for smoking my irons, I'm starting to wonder if technology has moved past me. I'm going to play my next round with just a five iron. That's where the money is.

Lol. I had a fitting, bought new irons and has done wonders for my game. Maybe honeymoon glow at the moment but if the relationship doesnt work out, I still have some shiny new sticks to admire in the garage.

Haven't picked up a club since Growling Frog OOM. I'm thinking it's going to be an interesting day out tomorrow. ...

It's official. I'm a paid up card carrying participant in the October event. I know what you are all thinking, "how does he do it, how does he keep up the pace, gee it seems like only four months ago he played his last round".

And I'm here to tell you you'd be right. Apart from my little chat with PJ on Friday, it's been a little gap.

It's what we in the game call a taper. A fine tune, oil the hinges, blow out the rust, dead set opportunity for the memory muscle to relax.

Look out people, come NSW GC time, anything can happen, and usually does. Quite capable of hitting the longest drive and not making the ladies tee within three holes of each other, the opportunity to play in my group is an opportunity most are only too willing to pass up.

Look after yourselves until the big day, I'll definitely be doing the same.
