I have tried some ‘interesting’ stuff with my golf equipment over the years. Three wood shaft in the driver? Check. 30 grams of lead tape on my seven iron? Playing with four chippers? Check and check. Mainly, I do this to see what it is like. It is all well and good spouting off about… Read More »The Driver Hybrid: The Next Step in Golf Tech?
Everything about golf equipment from clubs to bags and balls
Golf is full of controversies. The whole blades vs cavity backs debate, for example. Or what about belly putters? Single length irons, anyone? People tend to have strong opinions on things. Unfortunately, a lot of these opinions aren’t really based on much, certainly not on any actual facts! I have lots of golf opinions. One… Read More »Should We all be Using a Chipper?
Even the absolute golfing beginner will notice very quickly that not all golf clubs are the same.

In another month or two, humid conditions are going to be the norm. While I certainly don’t mind this, it does present a practical problem or… Read More »How to Dry Out Golf Grips
My current golf club collection is a far cry from what it was a few years ago. I think, at one point, I had 8 iron sets alone in rotation! This wasn’t clubs that were just gathering dust in a corner either. I was basically alternating sets from one round to the next. Given that… Read More »Building a Back Up Golf Bag
