first time on a lathe

First off........ Hello !! this is my first post an I am rather new to the turning world, 4 months total. Got my first lathe over the summer and have been turning clubs ever since. Below are 3 of my latest ........ 2 made with Goncalo Alves and the third made with Purpleheart with gold hand painted rings all three hit with a few coats of linseed oil . I dont really care for the finish but it was easier then poly or most other finishes ............. this wood is TOUGH to work with that's for sure so any tips would be appreciated

So what do you guys think for a first timer?

Looks good to me. You gonna drill out the heads and pour lead in them?

i added lead to an oak club before because it needed the extra weight but with these weight isnt an issue, trust me theyre HEAVY an almost 2 inches thick at the tips ...... im working on adding but/pommel spikes to future clubs though.
