  1. I do... took a bit of buffing to get rid of dings, then extended it a bit and added the wristlock grip with the plastic replaced with Dippel leather. I have a fantasy of Evnroll doing a copy new 'inspired by' version with the distance control grooves, and body made from titanium to improve the sound.
  2. A match made in heaven. Just saw him tee off at the Open, and sNopeed (<---- dear frikkin gawd, what the good fukkitty feck is this... [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@ is a perfectly decent English word) when I saw the logo on his shirt lapel.
  3. My driver’s an Adams 9015d, so from 2008 i think… bought from Sellinger’s with a Diamana Blueboard 80s. It’s now got a Diamana ZF70s Irons are Epon 301s released in 2007, although they were available as Technica Pro-1 before then around 2004.
  4. I always loved the Diamana Blueboard - and am now very happy with a Diamana ZF 70S in my driver. I'd recommend it - https://www.mca-golf.com/products/zf-series
  5. Using the Golfworks ribs (or a ribbed grip) - give it a try at 12 o'clock.... so directly on top of the shaft. Easy to set club square in a vice and then apply the rib consistently at that Top position. This then allows you to monitor/feel the clubface from where that rib sits in the V of your left hand - works very nicely for me (as I tend to grip with the face a bit closed, maybe due to being left eye dominant)... and I can use Bestgrips leather grips with the reminder rib installed underneath it (and the grip on upside down so the stitching is on top too).
  6. I nominate 'hooplehead'. Kidding... all the mindless 'get in the hole' etc, it would be better if never heard again but...
  7. Copy pasted this reply from another thread Steve Elkington's book "Five Fundamentals of Golf" has one of the best written instruction on the grip. He mention "if he had to have one operation done to improve my golf, I'd have the Doctor sew my forefingers to my thumbs".Pic below shows it as Monte describes - no gap in that V (on either hand actually). In the book he shows a black marker pen dot on his thumb - to the side of the thumb, which is where that thumb makes contact with the grip.... NOT the ball of the thumb (again, see below)
  8. Here’s my Frankenstein wrist lock putter… as i’m left eye dominant and like having the ball well forward it works great for me - see my description for info on what and why… First round with a Wristlock grip fitted to my Cameron Futura 2003... and the short review it works brilliantly. Mind you, here's some info that may help you decide if it's for you too... I'd say you need +/- 3 inch extension if you want to maintain same posture - I have the wristlock bump resting about almost halfway up my forearm (which also seems to mean less forward press required),
  9. find yourself an old Adams 9015d or 9016 for some deep love...

  11. Because a putter designed for Arm-lock is more comfortable to use than this from many years ago (and doesn't put the eye line way outside the target line) Actually, I like my own version - an old Scotty Cameron Futura, extended about 4 inches and a Superstroke wristlock grip put on. Works well with my left eye dominant eyes & the ball setup off my left foot. The main benefit is it helps prevent the wrist breaking down.
  12. Easiest job in the world? Weather forecaster in Singapore. I mean, seriously. "Today, it will be humid.... and 31 degrees, or maybe 32."
  13. Holy cow.. she really does give that 3 wood a proper seeing to... You'd think after this much time on the tour and having got to to number one, the announcers would have some kind of a clue as to how to pronounce her name even remotely near to correctly... "Air-ier" FFS.... I reckon Pete Alliss would have made a better effort than them, and know when to shut up too.
  14. The "Old Course" there is peculiar for that... I played there over 25 years ago when it was the only course at Siam Country Club and it had the irritating midges then too (seemed like midges anyway)... whereas even on any other tree lined golf course in Thailand I've never come across anything like it. Or even the Plantation course which is a newer layout at Siam Country Club, again... no problems with the insects - weird.
