    Played Headland off 12
    Course was in great condition
    I had 42 on the front for 18 points
    40 on the back for 20 points
    82 and 38 points

    Driver was pretty wayward with push fades for much of the day and cost me a few shots
    Otherwise played pretty well apart from the wipe on 3 where the bad drive was followed by a bad punch from the trees and not getting up and down with Texas through wet grass

    Even better played considering you had a wipe!

    does anyone know if green keepers are still allowed to work at the greater Melbourne contaminated zone courses..
    green keeping is not really really essential service, and I know last time, clubs had to battle to retain the courses.
    not mentioned anywhere, but then again haven’t heard clubs screaming.

    Advise we are being given is a conditional yes, it appears that a skeleton staff can work to maintain the course to a level, but not the full staff.

    We were essential staff, Up here in qld originally, but I guess if they are shutting life down in Victoria, then, we aren’t…. it’s only turf anyway, We are trained to deal with abnormal growth patterns. I just applied growth regulators to everything when the shit first hit the fan in March

    a few of our Vic members need that growth regulator but may be to late now

    A couple of suggestions, Mads.
    Under the [New Posts] bar, can we also have [Recent Posts]?
    Can we please have the English spelling of favorites to favourites? This is not America, we are in the rest of the world.

    Unfortunately, it may be American software!

    Or we can use the Chinese software 喜爱

    Cleveland HB Launcher irons

    I tried a set of Cleveland HB Launcher irons with seniors flex shafts yesterday. Set 5 iron to GW. These are super game improvement irons. With the large hybrid like sole they are less likely to result in fat shots. Conditions were wet and soggy. Once I got used to playing variable length irons again, I found that they were easy to hit, not super high and carry about the same as my regular clubs. I think they would suit a beginner and senior players with slower swing speeds. These are the superceded model. The new Turbo version look to have slightly stronger lofts on a few clubs.

    Cleveland HB Turbo Driver

    I am using a 12 degree head that suits my 85-89 mph swing speed. No adjustments on the hosel / no moveable weights. It feels light to swing. it is available in 9, 10.5 ( + draw model) and 12. Retail $350-380. Pretty good performance / yard. I have added some lead tape to the heel to encourage a more draw bias. It is a loud driver!

    Milford Single Length irons SL-7

    I have been using SL irons for two years now. The advantages are a single consistent swing and ball position for all your irons. I started with Cobra F7, then moved to Cobra F9. ( 5 -GW) . The Cobras are strong lofted ( e.g. the 5 iron is 22.5 degrees= most 4 irons) and possibly for slower swing speed players the 5&6 irons would be better replaced with hybrids. The 5 &6 were prone to producing flyers with widely varying distances.

    The Milfords have some advantages. They are 50% the cost of the Cobras & have traditional lofts which I have found give more consistent carry distances. I am using graphite shafts. I would say that the Milfords are better suited to players with a shallow delivery, unlike the Cobras with their wider sole.

    I have the SL-7 from 6 iron ( 29 degree loft) to LW. I used the SL-7 SW and LW in summer and Cleveland CBX2 SW and LW in soft winter conditions ( higher bounce). If you are at all interested in the SL concept, these are a good starting point. You need to use them for a few games to properly evaluate the system.

    Cobra Single Length Hybrids

    One of the downsides of SL irons is that you need a good swing speed to get the 4&5 irons ( those under 26 degrees) to fly high enough and get good gapping distances between the irons. The alternative is to use Hybrids, but the longer shafts of traditional Hybrids can make them less accurate to hit. Cobra has been making SL hybrids for the last three models. These are hybrid heads on 7 iron length shafts. Generally they should be considered as 3,4& 5 iron replacements. They are not as long as traditional hybrids, nor as high flight wise. They fly just a bit higher than a iron, with similar accuracy. They are also good for punch shots, chipping close to the green and long bump and run shots. The baffler rails make them the club of choice in poor lies and the short shaft is good for side lies.

    thanks for the insightful post!

    An extra 12 months to get the handicap sorted 😂

    Does that mean you will be out to 19 by then??

    Probably 😉

    I don’t believe you.

    Gotta play (comp) rounds…highly unlikely for a while.

    I’ll be a super chopper by then.

    On behalf of the group….welcome.

    You start off with…”Hi….my name’s John…and I’m an uber-chopper”

    Thank you for your welcome Michael. When do the live sessions start?

    Are you adding 2020 brass yacht holder to your signature?? 😉

    He will have another year off”polishing”

    Maybe we should be doing speed golf. It takes me around 50 minutes to play 18 holes – falls in under the 1 hour of exercise and could keep the golf courses open as long as you live near one. 🙂

    as long as only 5k from home?

    Yes – Bump has paid for me.

    How about, if you get your handicap lower than mine, I will*

    Bump it’s a week later next year so you should be able to attend?
