    Anyone for Golf!

    I can't really see a general Golf discussion thread like we have for Tennis, so i thought I'd start a similar one. It's been quite an amazing Open Championship this, not before seen so many players grouped together with such low scores on the final day. Some terrific rounds, matched by some...

    Golf ball fitting

    Following the golf MOT I went to a couple of weeks ago I was advised that either the Srixon AD333, Bridgestone E7 or Titleist NXT would be a good choice of ball for my swing / needs Have any of the golfers here compared these balls and if so, did you have a preference for any one in particular?

    New golf clubs

    I can currently play to a handicap of around 18 but only get the chance to play around once a month. I will soon have a chance to play more often and I'm going to invest in a new set of irons as I only have a cheap set of Dunlops. I've narrowed my search to the following sets which are all...

    golf tee

    What height tee do you use for your driver? I usually use a medium tee approx 1.5" ( above ground) but watched a video online that said to use a 3" for greater distance. My new driver is a Callaway FT-IQ ( not used it on the course yet). Neil

    Golf general advice and help thread.

    I am starting back playing golf after a 12-15 year absence and am looking for a new driver. My mate has lent me his spare cheapo Dunlop driver and whilst I'm not doing bad, I noticed that when I used his proper driver I could hit it further even if I hadn't connected properly. At the moment...
