  1. I second Mizuno. I'd look at the Mizuno JPX series. I bought my set of JPX 825 Forged new from a fiftter and they are still in the bag. Great forgiveness and feel. Not a distance club per se, but solid with more reasonable lofts. Less distance penalty when not hit so well, rewards good strikes with feel. I would think used sets would be available at UK shops since they do volume there. There are some cast versions too that were more distance oriented, didn't hit those. They are seven years old now, so should be good value. I plan on holding on to mine as a backup set
  2. My older son plays the Winn's, and he is very partial to them. Like others have said, the feel is different. Tried out the Tour Velvets for a different feel, and he wanted the Winn's back. They have a squishier feel than the Vtmax and Tour Velvets, and a good amount of tack. Vtmax grips are not bad, but they will wear more quickly. Had them on my younger son's set, and he wears them out really quickly, so need to go in a different direction for him.
  3. Lots of good advice in this thread. I have two boys under 10 who are playing a fair amount. Most of their competitive experience is match play, and their leagues play 4-5 person teams Coaching others children in golf has been a good learning experience for me in coaching them better. You get better context for you own kid's improvement. And if you wouldn't do something on the range or course with someone else's kid, hard to justify it with yours.
  4. Kids are fickle, at least mine are. They need routine and reinforcement, and will choose "screen time" over anything else. Mine are young (6 and 8), but we are having the spend a good chunk of the summer in golf "camp" at the local Muni. For them, they get to hang out with other kids, ride around in the carts with the HS golfers, play golf and soccer golf, and eat hot dogs. They will play more holes this summer than I will have over the past few years. Both play in golf "little league", but neither has expressed serious interest in Jr tournament play. Maybe they will, maybe not. It somethi
  5. Ive got both the rovic Jr and the 3.5. I think the 3.5 is the better way to go. The rovic is great too, but 3.5 is nice. It will fit a larger junior bag. Gotta try that volleyball trick.
  6. Playing golf, at decent hacker levels, involves making a decent move at the ball most of the time. Having structured feedback frees you up to experiment. You can exaggerate the fix/feel, and then find it again later. Our own physical limitations (or advantages) can trick us into making golf swing harder than it should be or could be. Have to be able to make a decent semi althletic​ move to the ball.
  7. This has happened to me. And also only on mats. Monte straightened​ me out. 1) Weight off the toes. 2) More hip turn. 3) Fix hand path. 1 and 2 are pretty straightforward. I tend to get armsy, especially when warming up with wedges, and forget to turn properly. I also needed to keep my hands higher at address. A variation of the drill mentioned before is to use two balls and address the outer ball, then swing and hit the inner ball. Gets the hands working correctly. Search "Monte two ball drill."
  8. I'm not sure I could practice with them. I'd be too afraid they might get a rock chip.
  9. Followed on Twitter. Looking to swap out KBS Tour R for Modus 120 R.
