The Taylormade M1 ’17 vs M2 ’17 Iron Review Feat. Ghost – GolfBox

It isn’t every day that you can say you have seen/heard a Ghost. Well, I can say that I have! (Obviously, it wasn’t but it sounded like it). It was during my review of the Taylormade M1 vs M2 ’17 Iron Reviews for GolfBox Reviews – YouTube Channel


Sounds like he is opening a can of Pepsi! However, we have noticed that a few similar noises have been heard on the PGA Tour. (See video below)

Hi Guys, 

Had a rather quiet stage recently on the review front. However, this is because GolfBox Reviews is getting bigger and bigger! Exciting times ahead…. that’s all I can say at the moment but watch this space. 

Anyway, I will be back this week with more reviews etc. I would just like to know what Reviews/Vlogs you would like to see? It can be a comparison, tuition or product review.

Golf Short Game Drills – That aren’t boring!

This is an issue very close to my heart. As I find short game practice so boring and will do anything I can to make it more interesting.

I go and play, maybe hitting Driver and Irons reasonably, to always get let down by my short game. If I had a dollar for every time I heard “if only you could putt” or “you’d be dangerous with a short game”, I’d be a few dollars behind Mr Bill Gates.

The worst thing of all is that get very angry at my seldom short game. I mean, why?, I don’t practice, so how can I get angry?! (I’m sure most people can relate to this). Instead of moaning about this any longer, like a giant sook!, I decided to take action. I managed to find the best short game drills and games that kept my Goldfish-like attention span interested for more than an hour.


I’m going to start this with one of my favourites, as this has helped me kill a few minutes before a tee time and a few hours after work. It has become my default drill.


  • A drill created by Mind Coach, Karl Morris (Cheers Karl) –  This game includes three very easy steps.  WARNING: Be prepared to lose a few hours – please apologise to your partner in advance
  1. From around the green, you’re going to pick 9 locations to play from, 3 easy, 3 medium and 3 hard.
  2. Each mini hole is a PAR 2 and by playing 9 holes you make a total of a PAR 18.
  3. Play all 9 holes and keep your score – making 18 your target score.

  •  This one is fun, yet frustrating. Created by some bloke called Jordan Speith (Never heard of him). It’s called the ‘GATE CRASHER’ for a reason and is ‘aimed’ to improve accuracy – pun intended. 
  1. Find a straight putt uphill of about 8-10ft and place two markers in the middle of you and the hole – setting them just wide enough for the ball to go through.
  2. The goal is for the ball to roll through the ‘gate’ tees and also into the hole at the end.
  3. Score yourself half a point for getting through the gates, and a full point if it also goes in the hole.

“I like to play this one at the start of my putting warm-up to dial in my accuracy before I go on the course. To be good at this game, you have to steady your body and make solid strokes. It’s perfect pre-round practice”– Jordan Speith for Golf Digest

Recording your swing at the range

As you may know, recording your golf swing is highly addictive and can encourage any poor range session. If you don’t do it, I would highly recommend that you start. Without a recording device, I can be bored and unmotivated within 20-30 mins. With a recording device, I could easily be there all day.

Here are a few swings that I have logged. I’m trying to prevent a drop in my swing that allows me to attack the ball with a more neutral angle of attack. My ‘normal’ swing can be so far inside, that I either flip the hands over to attempt to recover – on a good day this works. Or, when playing a Tournament I can lack confidence and I do not commit – the big block appears! When I say block – I mean wayyyyyy right!…It’s truly devastating.

A few slow-motion swings that wouldn’t look out of place in a Blockbuster HAHA!

The swing below is from my recent Perth World Super6 Pro-Am Experience at Lake Karrinyup. By far one of the best golf days thus far. I was partnered with a Tour Pro that replaced Tiger in the Oakmont US Open. This is the 18th approach with wedge in hand. (Instagram)

This one was taken at my home club – The Vines GC in Western Australia. 18th tee again, Driver in hand and looking to carry the corner. On this occasion, I did. (Instagram)

This one was the early stages in the ‘drop it like its hot’ issue. At the top, you can clearly see a loss in height and me consequently getting the club stuck behind (YouTube)
