Re: The Golf Topic

Almost walked in halfway through the back 9 today. I continually have a good front 9 (+4 today) and then fade away as soon as I hit the turn (+15) for +19 total. Of my 5 submitted scores, the same thing has happened three times (across two different courses). Trying to figure out if it's a fitness ...

I’d rather a regular hit out of the centre of my modern sledgehammer than a much lower success rate with a Persimmon!

Re: The Golf Topic

^ All sounds very good so well done and seemingly from a couple of those scores it looks like there's still potential for further reductions in your HI during the rest of the summer. :thumbup: Yes….my bad shots are now (in the main) not that bad and easily recoverable from. Not long back from an on...

Re: The Golf Topic

So after spending the best part of 9 months completely rebuilding my swing it seems that my game is coming back. I have got to the point where I don’t have to think about my swing now (rather than go thru’ the mechanics of it as a practice swing and have to keep thinking about what I was doing) and ...

Sharing your problems is good and people on the forum will be happy to chat but…and I can’t say this forcefully enough….call The Samaritans now and talk to them.

Seems a friend of mine has just bought a box of them so I’m nabbing a sleeve to try them out …..putting practice only though!

Re: The Golf Topic

Oh…balls lost per season. Don’t like to think. Let’s just say somewhere between more than I would like and gazillions 😁 I seem to lose an inordinate amount pointlessly. For instance I was practicing chipping a while ago and one ball ran just off the green…and I mean maybe a foot…into some not very l...

Re: The Golf Topic

Haven’t managed to get out since about 16th December due to weather,work and life in general. Didn’t even get to the driving range until a Wednesday this week. That was an experience! The combination of time away and also a minor injury hasn’t done my swing any good it seems. I managed a short lesso...

Re: Pre-launch Revival Model Exclusive

I had the intention of probably buying a C5 but found that I just didn’t have the urge to do so. The C8, however,was another matter. I owned an original C8 and was quite tempted but he revival watch. However (and this is an issue which stopped me buying CW watches for a while) it has that hideous ho...

Re: Helm watches - thumbs up

I meant to post this up a month or so ago but got distracted and then forgot! Anyhow,seems I added a third Helm to my collection. The Khuraburi. This is another 300m dive watch which is 42mm with 22mm lugs and a Seiko movement (NH38).Another well made watch which again is incredible value for money....

Re: Pre-launch Revival Model Exclusive

I always liked the C5….I think I had 4 or 5 of them in total. I have a vague recollection of paying about what, £150?, back then.
