A TALE OF TWO ROUNDS OF GOLF!

Golf. What a bloody game!!! Having not played or practiced as much as I would have liked... I had two rounds in two days. I didn't really have that much expectation to be honest, but felt pretty good and completely refreshed. My first round was at Doncaster GC, followed by the medal at Howley Hall GC. Wow... how ...

PUTTER FITTING AT RYAN RASTALL GOLF

PUTTER FITTING AT RYAN RASTALL GOLF

Putters. I always find it's a love hat relationship with them. Most recently, mine is mostly a hate relationship!! Having struggled with my putter for quite a while now... I decided enough was enough, and get a new one! However, rather than going to eBay, I'd go and get one that was actually right for me, and my putting ... More

WHAT’S IN MY BAG FOR 2017

A question I get asked a lot... well, maybe once or twice... it What's In My Bag. In the past, I have been a little bit of an eBay golf addict. Yup, I was forever buying clubs that I thought would be good for me without trying them before realising they actually weren't and then selling them again! Thankfully... I have ... More

Lesson Number 3 with Rick Shiels at Quest Golf

Lesson Number 3 with Rick Shiels at Quest Golf

After the debacle at the weekend, lesson number 3 with Rick could not come soon enough! I headed over to Quest Golf Academy not feeling particularly great about my game.

Lesson 2 with Rick Shiels at Quest Golf Academy

Time for lesson number 2 with Rick Shiels over at Quest Golf Academy. So, the first lesson with Rick was great... and certainly gave me some things to work on. However, I had a holiday straight after so never had as much time to practice as I'd have liked. But, I'm not one for excuses... not this year anyway! Once I got ... More
