No real reason to post. Just wanted to say hello to all the regulars.

Shocking time - i'm sat at home trying to make sense of it all. Fortunate enough to have a garden long enough to hit a few airflights.

Hope everyone out there is safe and home and healthy. I'm one of the 'vulnerable' ...so if anyone feeling wobbly, i know how you feel. Use every avenue you can to keep in touch with people.

Take care everyone.

Hi MPX ... Nice to hear from you - Scary times indeed _ Golf seems a distant memory & pretty insignificant already - Hope everyone here (& beyond) keeps safe & healthy ... Paul

Hi there MPX, changed times indeed. We'd normally be in a frenzy as the Masters approached, but, this year everything is put into perspective. I have two colleagues who are suffering from the virus. Suddenly makes you realise how fragile we are.

Hope everyone is keeping well, staying safe and coping with the stresses and strains of home working or staying at home. Hopefully we will get out of this soon if everyone follows the rules.

Stay safe everyone.

David

If i've a full 3 months at home, might get around to posting my new kit.

Funny how practicing in the garden without no particular end game has resulted in swinging it a lot better. It if could warm up 10 degrees it might be possible to enjoy part of the experience.

Speculating what the golf industry might look like when we all get back - let alone life in general. Could either come back with a bang as we're all desperate to play again or a little flat if everyone is broke. Can't see much happening until July at best.

What really bugs me is so now I am gardening? walking the dog? exercise? combine the walking the dog with exercise and I find my self at the golf club, fine you may think but a few weeks ago Frinton golf course was under water. Since then it has closed and only half the green staff are at work. It looks oh so beautiful, that aroma of fresh cut grass, perfectly cut fairways the spooky thing is on the perfect looking greens NO flags. How many more weeks of this torture am I going to be able to cope with. Stay safe my friends I shall try to stay sane.
P.S as barbers are not open I am even more Hairy.

A tease by the weather forecasters this morning that it might be a bright, warm weekend ahead. With the course closed it may be time to cut the grass and start some practice in the back garden :)

Keep safe everyone. Already it seems ages since l last played (18 days only), but I’m sure we’ll all make the most of it when we’re finally allowed to do so.

I’ll also be looking at the ST 200x driver (and 3 wood?)

Anyone tried the new putters?

Have been hitting air flights up and down the garden - all seemed good until i was curious enough to film my swing (mainly because i was convinced i was swinging it beautifully). Turned out it looks horrible and now i can't enjoy fact that i seem to be hitting it pretty nicely. By the time this is over i'll have over thought my way out of any sort of workable golf game.

Fatal mistake. I did this just before we had out Northern Forum event last year. I was hitting my wedge really well and had my daughter film me hitting a few shots. After looking at the video I was traumatised. I have never thinned wedge shots ... until after that day . Once it is inside your head it cant get out. Best to leave the camera work for the Pros IMO 😉

I'm going to try to emulate your garden dudes. Not sure how Leith Docks will like me hitting balls off my balcony like!
Pick a target and go for it 😉

Not been in for a while. Hope everyone is keeping their heads down so to speak. Lots of murmuring now that UK courses could open again with restrictions. I hope that's the case if for no other reason than to get the lad off the flipping xbox
