Short answer: lessons. Long answer: I think 2 main things were causing my slice. Mostly it was an open club face. I wasn't closing the club face at all. It's hard for me to even imagine now but I used to somehow swing without turning my body much at all. The second thing for me was my path. My path wasn't as bad as my club face but I swing way more from the inside now.
It's hard to say what "most" golfers or the "average" golfer does ...since we really are just extrapolating based on what we see on the course. From what I see, "most" golfers do not properly strike their irons so if they stick the green from *any* distance requiring a full swing it's pretty much luck. I think if we set up at a muni on a 100 yard par 3 we'd see a lot more people miss it than hit it. Probably 70% miss is my guess. My own percentage from 150 is not that...
I never knew they had PGA pros at dicks. When they said "golf pros" on their commercial, I just assumed they were exaggerating ...like when commercials say to go see the lending pros or the home pros or whatever, lol. They should have said "PGA pros". In any case, I guess I can see why they changing direction. When I shop at a place like dicks I don't expect or need a golf pro to help me. It's just not part of what I associate with a big box sporting goods shopping...
I'm definitely going pro.  I've been working hard since last year saving up for all the irons. I just need the 3-5 irons now . .and then I turn pro.    I tried to get sponsored by some major club companies but . .apparently you have to already *have* all the clubs before they'll give you any.  How does that make sense?     Edit . . truthfully, I also need a sand wedge but I figured I could play my first tournament without one and then get one with my first check.  
Impossible to guess! I think he has the potential to do almost anything he wants. Impossible to guess what that is, though. Could he win 12 majors in 6 years? I don't think so. Maybe 8. But who knows? Maybe he can't sustain this current level of focus or maybe somebody even better will win them. Lydia Ko? I predict she'll get an invite to the masters , win her in her first appearance and then win the next 25 majors in a row. Failing that, though, things looking good...
I think Rory is incredibly exciting to watch! There's nobody else out there right now that can repeatedly run away from the field. It's his ability to do that, in mind, that gives him the potential to someday be in the same class as tiger, jack, hogan, etc.As far as being European , we Americans assimilate those we like. A few more wins and Rory is American, lol.
Looking at this list of "most pga tour wins":   1 Sam Snead H 1912–2002  United States 82 7 1936–1965 30 2 Tiger Woods 1975–  United States 79 14 1996–2013 18 3 Jack Nicklaus H 1940–  United States 73 18 1962–1986 25 4 Ben Hogan H 1912–1997  United States 64 9 1938–1959 22 5 Arnold Palmer H 1929–  United...
There's really no such thing as star power. It's all about golf power. Jack and tiger are huge stars because they won so much. If Rory or anybody else wins that much they will be just as big a star. Tell me there is anybody on the planet that could win like tiger did (and hopefully will again) and somehow not be of interest to the public?
I got Carl Pettersson. Whether tearing up the course or tearing up a sandwich, your skills are considerable. When you're in contention, the other players wilt like the lettuce at a Sizzler salad bar. Whether stretching your lead or another pair of those white pants, you are .....magnificent!
If Rory can pull it off this week that will be quite a story. I'm hoping he keeps it going and runs away from the field.
