  1. We offered 3 different grinds on them so it depends on which grind!
  2. Sounds like you have one of the SB1 sets that had more offset before we made them with zero offset in the short irons. Your right it's about 1-3mm progressive.
  3. Post a couple pics and I can tell you the specs!
  4. One thing to note when it says UK above it really means England. Scotland often does its own thing when it comes to covid restrictions etc. I live in Scotland and people here are not confident in international travel before June or July at the earliest. I'll be surprised if they allow international travel into Scotland May 17.
  5. Completely just for looks. Some say it helps them a little with alignment. Classic look that I personally am a big fan of.
  6. Golf in Scotland is open and has been during this lockdown. We have just recently been allowed to play as 4 instead of just 2. Still locals only.
  7. Yes that's no problem. There's virtually nothing that we cant do with these putters. Best part is they perform better than anything else out there because they moi is 130% higher.
  8. Jeff we have discussed this multiple times. The wedge you wanted copied was one you modified not one that we ground. You are one person who cannot be made happy. You were also so rude to my employees that 2 of them refused to continue to work with you. That's the reason we chose to not work with you with the new company. Either way I hope your doing well and your game is good these days!
  9. Add the islands to Ayrshire and Machrihanish. Shiskine on Arran, Machrie on Islay and Ardfin on Jura. All easily accessible by ferry from Machrihanish area. Also if your in Machrihanish do not miss Dunaverty and stay in Campbeltown. Great little Scottish town.
  10. St Andrews is a great place to base your trip out of I was just saying make sure you get out of town and go play some other local spots or you don't really get a true Scottish flavor. St Andrews to me is its own thing especially during the busy season.
  11. The closest to Bandon would be St Andrews which is basically just a resort itself. They have 7 courses on site plus many others very close like Kingsbarns etc. Next id recommend the golf coast area of East Lothian which has 21 courses within a 30 mile stretch of coast including greats like N Berwick, Muirfield, Gullane etc. There's other options too. Troon and Prestwick are right next to each other and you could also play Western and Glasgow Gailes and drive 45 min or so to Turnberry. Dundonald is new and also in that area. Gleneagles is a very nice resort. If your feeling a little adventurous you could do Campbeltown which has 3 great courses and access to 3 others by ferry. Also a bunch of great whisky distilleries in this area.
  12. I lived in Oregon for 10 years and spent a ton of time at Bandon. I have over 500 rounds on Pacific Dunes alone. I moved to Scotland a couple years ago so I have a ton of experience with both. Bandon is amazing. Absolutely one of my favorite places to play golf in the USA. It is absolutely authentic links golf, you can play the ground game, watch the ball bounce etc etc just like in Scotland. Bandon is where I fell in love with links golf. I find the biggest difference between Bandon and links in Scotland or Ireland etc is the width of the fairways. Bandon has very wide fairways compared to most links over seas. No doubt to make it a little easier and more enjoyable for the resort guests. The links over here have tighter, more narrow fairways in general. Once I moved to MI from OR I did find it easier to get to Scotland than Bandon. I like the overnight flight and landing early and going straight to the golf course. The culture over here is also completely different and imo its really cool how golf is a game for everyone over here. Scotland is cheaper than Bandon for the most part. The food is better in Scotland too as is the whisky. People who say Scotland has bad food are eating the wrong things. Everyone who is serious about golf needs to take a trip to Scotland at some point. Make sure you don't just goto St Andrews as that's very different from the rest of golf in Scotland especially during the normal busy summer. There is no right or wrong answer here Bandon and Scotland are of the best places to visit in the world and everyone who loves golf should try to visit both at some point in their life.
  13. Dishonest people generally do not stop being dishonest because a few years go by. And I don't appreciate being called a liar because I shared what happened to me. I'm sorry your offended by my experience. I'm very glad your experience was much better. Hoping you make lots of birdies the next time you play! I'm off to enjoy some other conversations!
