Made a few changes recently that I think I'm content with now to see me through 2019 so thought i'd post my first ever WITB, so I can update as I go along and keep track of any progress.



Current Handicap is 1.6, hoping to get to scratch by the end of the year.



Main Changes of 2019 so far:



917 D3 & 917F3 have been replaced

Vokey Sm6's replaced

716 TMB 2 iron replaced with 712u for lower trajectory.

MB 4 iron replaced with Vega VM-02 3 iron (bent weak)



I'll be changing the grip on the 3 wood to a midsize lamkin cord to match the driver.

    How do you like the Cobra so far?



    Off topic - are you countertops butcher block? If so, how have they been to care for?

    The cobra is hands down the best fairway I’ve ever used (for me) always felt I need to sweep with a fairway. With the cobra the rails just give me the confidence to hit 3 wood from lies I previously wouldn’t consider.



    I even hit a few out of divots the other day on the practice ground and you can get so aggressive and hit down with it that it just pops out and flies.



    Yes the worktops are butchers block, they haven’t been too bad however my Wife does regularly care for them with wax and polish.



    Have to be so careful that you wipe down all surfaces after use otherwise watermarks etc will show and mark the finish.



    Had to replace a section around the sink as I inadvertently got water up the splash back which sat on the block between the sink and wall, it caused the work top to swell and crack.

    Thank you sir!

    Yes currently using the shotscope V2. I like collecting my stats to structure practice and coaching sessions.
  • Ok I was wondering. I have the game golf tags and I painted them black (plastidip) and was wondering if you did the same. I forgot shotscope v2 tags were already black.

    Decided to add an Armlock to the bag, it's now replaced the Laguna, after much tweaking and trialing.

    Decided to convert an old Studio Design 1 to an armlock myself, I tried several grips and just loved the AL2 so stuck with that over probably more sensible lower weight options.

    Specs are:
    Loft: 7
    Lie: 70
    Length: 42 inch
    Head Weight: 420g (Head is 330g, 90g of Tungsten Powder added to shaft and corked)

    As you can seen it's a bit of a beast next to a 35 inch putter with midsize matador.

    Now the weather is getting better in the uk I decided to pick myself up a Flightscope, should massively help with the coming season. Can e-mail practice sessions to my coach to help structure sessions we have together and work on swing faults and just try to dial in numbers.

    He uses a GCQ so I'll compare the two units side by side and see what sort of tolerances I'm working too. Hopefully they provide very similar data but it seems fairly accurate to me so far

    Below is screen grab from 5 iron on the Skills App.

    As I predominantly use an electric trolley these days I decided to get a more suitable bag. I’ll keep the stand bag for when I want to carry or hit the range.
