Any courses open that are worth playing?



Pretty much everything is open.

So far (1 round) I am not playing well enough to reward myself haha. No worse than end of last season though which is a small victory.




Npham might have a cheap lightly used M2 for sale pretty soon here
The cobras are nice, and honestly if you want something super forgiving definitely give the pings a lookover (cheaper also)

I haven't had a chance to play it(much)! There was a rattle, so I had to get that sorted out first. It's an M1, not an M2!

Did you ever play the SLDR? If so how does it compare?

I'm a fan of Taylor Made drivers but really hated the SLDR and have been considering the M1/M2.

Played the SLDR 430 for a season or so. It was a bomber, but the mishits were way too punishing. The M1 is a nice upgrade on that that driver. You still get the long ones, but the mishits aren't nearly as bad. I've hit quite a few bad shots with the M1 that still went 250-270 yards. You really need a fitting though, because it's low spinning and finding the right shaft is going to make a world of difference.

She's a dirty pirate hooker (hooking?) M1 (not M2... my bad)

I feel if he offloaded every club he wasnt happy with this season he'd only be left with a few irons

We have also played in some pretty windy conditions for the most part, and a bit colder. The elbow side is extremely wet also, lots of tough wedges if you land in the wrong area.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking at getting a driver/wood fitting done this year. Any recommendations on who to use?

I went to a demo day, and worked with a travelling TM rep. Then booked a time with a local TM rep to get fitted. He was alright but he didn't have as many shafts as I'd expect.
