purchase update; decided to get a set of Mizuno MX-950 irons (with 3+4 hybrids), after trying a few clubs i found these the best by far, hopefully these will last me a while too.
Only issue, is that the set goes from 3 to PW, so theres no SW/LW etc, which I'll probably need to buy seperately, and am not looking to spend too much money

suggest you find out what deg your PW is and then get wedges in equal steps to 60.

my PW is 46 and SW is 54 and there have plenty of shots where I would have preferred having a 50 deg GW or something between 54 and 60 deg.

as thing stand i hit my PW about 30 yds further than my SW with a full swing

He's barely played over the last 2 years anyway due to his knee injury.

I wanna see Tiger in action as well Oops

Judging by the amount of escorts and pornstars he's banged. I don't think we'll be waiting too long before the real one shows up. It's funny to me how all these escort agency owners go straight to the press, their other high profile clients gotta be shitting it, as well as taking their custom elsewhere.

Tiger Woods sex tape is said to be worth $5m if it exists. I think he did quite well keeping it a secret for as long as he did, being one of the most famous people in the world 'n all.

This is interesting:

"Lawyers acting on his behalf obtained an injunction in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales on December 11, 2009, preventing unspecified claims about his private life from being published in the UK press.[215] The order itself specifically prohibited the publication of any images of Woods naked or having sexual intercourse, without confirming the existence of such images."

i've never had a driver in my bag as i thought it was a waste whilst i was still a high handicapper. I suppose i'm getting to the point where i should start trying drivers out though… but for the time being i'm just looking at a 5 and 3 wood.

modern drivers with high loft like 11-13 degrees are easier to hit than 3 or 5 woods imo.

i normally hit my driver very well but have stopped using 3-5 woods as i was losing too many shots trying to use them off the fairways

if i have hit a drive and have 200+ yards left to green i will hit a 7 iron to middle of fairway and then a wedge as pretty much guaranteed to be on the green then whereas if i try and hit a 3 or 5 wood that distance i could be playing my next shot from anywhere.

shame poulter couldn't stay in contention this round, but i'd love it if westwood won this.. i fear the american crowd will carry mickelson and possibly woods through.
proper cringeworthy hearing an american golf crowd sometimes.

for anyone that's interested the finish to Masters is going to be huge.
