What’s your go-to club off the tee? • Personally I’d be pretty lost without my @titleist TMB 4 iron. My driver can be far too erratic and even though I love my 7 iron, it doesn’t give me enough to attack long par 4s and par 5s! • I’ve never been too fussed about distance off the tee, but being able to rely on my 4 iron just gives that little bit more which can be so useful...and it does feel so lush to hit!
So playing in 40mph winds today was interesting...to be honest, I absolutely loved it! • I went out without any expectations, so found myself swinging freely and concentrating on doing the right things, I learned a lot - it was a proper practice round! (I definitely more of them, but maybe not in those winds though) • Always great to have my gear from @bunkermentality to protect me from the conditions...not sure where I would be without that jacket! #teambunker
The 17th at TPC Sawgrass - stunning! #theplayers Photo: @premieraerials • I love seeing such famous courses outside of tournament weeks, they always look so different to my eye! (I had to check that this actually was the 17th initially - the tree and the island green give it away)
Are you putting with the flag in or out this season? • I know it had been discussed a lot already this year, but personally I’m perfectly happy to putt either way and don’t see it having much (if any) affect on my game - so I’m sitting firmly on the fence in this debate • Having said that I can totally appreciate that, like most of this game, it comes down to personal preference!

Spent the afternoon doing some putting drills with my trusty @puttoutgolf in order to nurse a niggle in my knee (courtesy of the race yesterday) • It’s always nice to be able to work on the game at home, but it’s important keep it mixed up too, so I try to change up the drills when I can! • Who had any good putting drills, either indoor or outdoor (or both!)?

I‘m loving the new lines of black irons that have been brought out recently, but I also know that my 712 AP2s would look amazing in black too (thanks to @nobadpars for the photo) so really tempted to get them refinished. • I know that I can get it done through @fingleglen but can’t decide whether to do it or not! • Would you go for a refinish or get new irons instead?

Who else is ready for summer now?! • I know it’s still a while off here in the UK, but some of this weather recently has got my far too excited. • This summer I want to try and fit in as many rounds as physically possible, particularly on new courses - all suggestions are welcome!
@bowood_hotel you were incredible! Without a doubt this course has secured a slot on my list of favourite courses. • Everything about the course was awesome, from the epic gateway entrance and the gorgeous clubhouse to the impeccable condition of the course (which, in itself was stunning). • It was long but relatively forgiving for the most part, with some really breathtaking holes. • I will definitely be going back! (Vlog coming soon by the way)
What do you think of @pxg ? • Honestly, before today if anyone had suggested I get @pxg clubs I probably would have laughed it off...but after the fitting I had from @pxg_brady down at @fingleglen I definitely realise I was probably too quick to judge • The fitting itself was immense and far more in depth than anything I’d had before, but the clubs were just a massive surprise! The driver looks and sounds incredible, the irons feel amazing and I may have finally found a 3 wood that I both love the look of and can also hit! ...

I think it’s fair to say that some courses are just more spectacular than others... • @quiviraloscabos 📸 credit: @garylisbongolf
Their first time on the course together! • A gorgeous day out at @thedartmouthuk - perfect for my Mum’s first ever proper round and nothing was wiping that smile off her face! • After a couple of weeks of hitting the range together, it was so cool to see both my parents hacking away but absolutely loving it, on the same course, together...it was a great sight and one I was really proud to be there to witness and won’t forget anytime soon

Who else loves an early morning out on the course? • When the air is still, the sun is rising and you are one of the only people out on the course - for me, that is absolute bliss!

Hybrid or long iron? • I’ve been switching between the two recently, but have definitely been favouring my @titleist T-MB 4 iron, particularly as an option off the tee. • Realistically I will probably keep switching throughout the season, whenever it’s necessary - it’s always nice to keep options open! • What do you prefer to play with?
The weather tried its best to stop me, but I made it out on to the course after what feels like forever! (Two weeks in reality) • I can’t say that any of the practice I’ve put in during that time has paid off, it was just nice to be out again - the sun even tried to make an appearance. • It was lush to get out at East Devon Golf Course again as well...completely different to how I remember it, but such a stunning course with incredible views. Highly recommend if you get the chance!
Can’t wait to get over and play East Devon Golf Club tomorrow! • I’m guessing it’ll look and play completely differently to the last time I was there (the middle of last summer) but still going to be great to play such a beaut course!
Sometimes, when things are going your way (like you end up in a green-side bunker which is under a tree) it helps to just laugh it off and move on...it’s just a game, after all!

Putting in the work at home over the weekend (that’s a concentration face right there) • I’ve found that having a @puttoutgolf has made putting practice so much easier...not to mention that watching the @attproam on @GOLFTV made the grind that much more enjoyable! Not a bad way to spend a wet and windy weekend. • It’s also nice to have some casual stuff to wear from @bunkermentality - their stuff is great for both on and off the course! #teambunker
