They've never had mats in use up there. Full tees and greens all year round. 👍 

 

The only mats are the ones introduced to the range. 

 

Wide fairways, numerous tee's and big greens, no need then.

Cracking round at Kirkcaldy this morning. 

 

A new PB was on the cards, was +8 with 4 holes to play (PB is +10) but ended up dropping 6 shots over those last 4. Still a 3 under handicap round and starting to get into a groove in time for the season.

Think you need to stop munching on your mat and start hitting shots off it.

Who mentioned condition in March? "Get it into" championship condition. Because its impossible for a course to be in good condition without using mats throughout 6 months of the year and on all playing parts of the course is your opinion it seems. Paying good money to play toy golf for six months:rofl::rofl:.

Glad to not be a member of a club. When time allows; myself & my non-member friends, happily turn up at a local course, flaunt the rules, & wind-up effete arseholes who inhabit said club. Then, leave without contributing a penny to their shitey bars.

 

The last person who told my mate to play off a mat, one day out from the season beginning properly...that was a funny day. :lol:

Kilspindie - not strictly true though, just play later and there are never any mats left, if it's bang in the middle of the fairway we kick to the side but not 100% in the rough, the course is immaculate these days.

What do you do when your ball is not in the middle of the fairway? Kilspindie member asking.

Watching the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sky.

How bad a commentator is Mark Roe. Totally monotone ,no rapport with his fellow commentators, and tries to be funny and totally fails

I know Ewan Murray is not everyones cup of tea, but why Sky are going with Roe I dont know..

I don't mind him. His content is usually decent even if his voice is not for all. 

 

He's done a few good features on The Masters using some impressive camera work. 

 

I'd rather have him than Alliss providing commentary.

Quick question peeps. Has anyone customised their wedges? As in stamping and infill paint jobs?

And if so, have you got them done professionally or done them yourself??

Or post a pic if you can?

Some hole in one from Ryan Moore on 17 at Sawgrass. Slam-dunk without a bounce. The hole needs repaired now! 😄

Starting to think I need a new set of irons (currently using mizuno mx300) and I think I’ll go for a fitting to get them. Last year I got a new driver from Scott Gourlay but I was thinking of just going to American Golf for the irons. Alternatively, I could go up to Gleneagles and get fitted for a new set of mizzys. Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

As an aside the new Ping i500s look gorgeous.

Mizuno JPX919 are possibly the best looking irons on the market just now. Cracking reviews from each of the models on offer. 

 

The JPX 900 are still available too and will likely be reduced.

That’s the thing, I think the jpx919 forged look really good and probably give me the forgiveness I need but my head has definitely been turned by those ping i 500s.

I’m with you on this, would definitely go to Scott for fitting on irons, but don’t think he stocks Ping and I am a real fan of these new i500’s not saying they’ll be best for me, but would definitely like the chance to see the numbers as they’re beautiful irons.

The trouble I am having is finding a place where I can try the mizzy 919 forged alongside the i500s. At the moment I am being swayed by the looks of the i500 even though my head says mizzy. 

 

What a conundrum, I’ve even got blessing from the wife to get a new set but struggling to choose which one.

I liked the look of the mizunos and went to try them and didn't like them same with the Taylor made p790. The back of the iron is huge. 

I'm still trying to decide on new irons but the way it's going it'll be another season with the current irons. ☹

Do American Golf not have them both? You could at least go along there to try them out.

That’s the plan. Can’t find any “reputable” fitters that will do both. Will let you know how I get on.

Was it possibly the 919 Hot Metal you looked at? The 919 Forged are quite neat.

No it was the forged. I play Wilson Staff V4 Forged and they've got a really small head as far as it goes.

Just got fitted at American Golf. Felt a little bad as I would have liked to go to a “proper” fitter but nowhere had the stock I wanted to try. Used the swing dna thing and focussed on 3 shaft types, all stiff. Tried jpx 919 forged, i500 and p790. The trackman numbers definitely favoured the i500s but I was a little sceptical regarding this. However, the dispersion, feel and forgiveness from the i500 blew me away. I was kind of pleased as I really liked the look of the i500s anyway. Ordered them there and then with a small change to make them 1 degree upright. Shaft I ended up with was project x lz 6.0.

 

Fingers crossed they perform as well on the course!

Good stuff. 

 

The leading brands don't make duff clubs and no doubt if you had the opportunity, to try various on technology like TrackMan, you'll find several that'll produce similar numbers once you've trialled different shaft and loft types. It'll essentially come down to preference of look and budget. 

 

What did you go with 4/5 iron to wedge? 

 

Set of new wedges next since you've got the shopping bug? 😄

On another note, The Players is heating up nicely on the back 9! Four way lead at - 14 including Rahm, McIlroy, Pepperell and Furyk. Three others one back including Fleetwood. Few guys bunched at - 12 too!

I'd rather buy clubs that felt good and a consistent dispersion rather than clubs that are a bit longer but more inconsistent. 

 

When I tried out a few, I hit TaylorMade the furthest but I was never that comfy with them. Ended up with Titleist AP1's.

The audio on sky sports is ****ing annoying. 

Jason day misses a putt but the groans were heard before he struck the ball.
