Title: Hello all
Post by: Geoff on November 26, 2020, 06:44:15 AM
Hi everybody,

happy to be part of the forum.

French amateur golfer, I am restarting after 2 years break.
I am living in Japan for one year now for a 2 years contract.
Unfortunely discovered the JDM gear in Tokyo and now spending my time to looking for some curiosity (and explaining to my wife that this club is very different that the ones found last week)
Really a large market with a lot of thing.
Very interesting to compare the approach of golf between Europe and Asia.
I am happy to learn by your side.

Have a nice day

Hey Geoff,

Welcome to the forum. It's relatively quiet here but there's a load of great info curated over the years.  Do enjoy your stay and hope to see you sharing your experiences and reviews especially with you being in Japan.

Thank you,

I am already running through some interesting topics.

I will share of course, I donít have the same level of analysis as old members but I will.

Look forward to it.

We are having issues with the website and can;t pot pics direct ... you'll have to use an external pic hosting service... yeah... its a bit of a pain but not that much.  Some of us use imgbb.com if you need one.

Hi Geoff.

Loads of info on here for you to search/sort through. A little quiet on here lately regarding people posting new threads, but hopefully it'll pick up in the new year when we're all out of lockdown restrictions.

 ;D

Ian.

Thanks guy,

No worries, I will adapt and read.
I will post the list of my stuff, nothing outstanding but some good thing pop up in the used market for fair price (like my Grindworks Variant One Utility on Mitsubishi OTi 95S brand new).

Thanks everyone.

 @mbbg, if you have any questions take photos.
 In fact, there could be a worse place in the world than Tokyo.
 I am here with my wife and my children, the main topic is rather knowing when we can fly again to France to see the family.

Yeah that would not be fun being in a foreign land and unable to travel to see family. What is day to day activity like there as far as the virus is concerned? I find it quite interesting Japan didnít adopt a large scale testing protocol like many other places yet seems to be doing very well despite having many elderly people.
