I use a 10-finger grip, sometimes hold the club in the palm of my hands (baseball grip) which generates more power....



....for me.

Also do you guys use the linked fingers method for holding the club? I used to but now I feel more comfortable with both hands separate.
For all of the .000000000000000000001% of my life I spent playing golf, I use linked fingers because it's what my grandpa (who only played golf for business) drilled into my brain.

Why not? I've never understood 'golf clothes' anyway.

For the record you wouldn't be allowed on the courses I play at with those clothes

@newbie: For the same reason that Wimbledon is to be played in all-white - the tradition as a gentleman's sport, really.

Nice timing whoever pulled the trigger on the cam.

thanks, and it was my wife.

when i was in college, i was able to get my handicap to an 8. i pulled everything left. now, i play bogey golf, with one eagle this year. the only thing Utah has in common with Scotland is the golfing season!

I hit every par 4/5's fairway which putt me at 7-7 on Tuesday I don't count par 3's. I started swinging the driver slower and sure I loose tons of distance but I'd rather be 260 in the fairway than 20 yards right/left at 275 yards ish.

Saw one of those TaylorMade Tour Burner driver's today. Only £100

Was so tempted to get it, don't have £100 though. Such a bargain



Also went golfing with mates that hadn't played in like a year. They both took shitty tee shots off the 1st, and I stepped up wtih my 3W and belted it 280 yards straight down the middle. Their faces when I turned round were priceless. They were like "you can actually play?!"

Damn straight

Am now a member of the St. Andrews Links Trust, and can play all the courses whenever I want, free of charge

played my first round at the New Course today. Shot a 93, which I was pretty happy with considering the fact that I hit a grand total of three fairways and had a few awful puts. Doesn't matter though, the course was beautiful, as were my irons

Been really addicted to the course lately, been playing 18 at least 4 times a week, getting pretty good too ! Got my handicap down to a 10, if I can just get better with my 60 degree around the greens, I reckon I could get it down to a 6/7.

Jens you lucky twat.

Played bad, but it doesn't matter. Absolutely crushed a drive over the hotel at 17, best feeling in the world.

Fucking epic course.

Nah, melted now.


I am impressed at how long the courses are open. As long as it isn't covered in snow, they'll open play. There were still some patches of snow around the course though, heh.
