I chose three things: lessons cost too much, no good instructors nearby, and like to figure stuff out on my own. I put down cost because as a college student I don't think I could afford quality lessons that would actually help. In the summer, I live in a small town with a golf course that doesn't really offer lessons of any kind. Summertime is really the only time I golf. Lessons from a "pro" would probably be at least a couple hours away. I like to experiment with my...
    Ok, so I did all this and came up with 32.2 for my handicap index. Is there a maximum handicap or does it just keep going up indefinitely? Thanks everyone for all the help so far.
I have no idea what the best way to calculate handicap is so I was hoping someone could help me out as I am curious to get a rough idea of what my handicap is. I just entered all of my scores for the last couple years into an excel spreadsheet. I have 61 rounds where I only played 9 holes. My average for those rounds was a 56.6. I have 20 rounds where I played the full 18 holes. My average for those rounds is a 106. All of these rounds are on the same course.   The...
I shot a 93 a couple days ago playing 18. Got a 49 on the front and 44 on the back. The 44 is my lowest score for 9 holes.

Just today I heard that you should keep your weight on your heels when swinging. Before today I had always tried to keep on the balls of my feet and swing. I tried keeping my weight on my heels and found that I hit the ball a lot straighter but lost maybe 20 yards. Is keeping your weight on your heels the correct way to swing? If so I will certainly start doing that.
I would like to post the website in my signature, but it doesn't look like I am able to yet. I hope this will work. http://Shotly.com
At my local golf course it costs around $2 for a bucket of balls to hit at the driving range. Members pay as well as non-members. What is the price range of driving ranges that others have seen? Is it normal for members of the club to pay as well as non-members or are their buckets "free"?
Thanks for the replies. I hope to get out playing golf again soon and will work on some drills suggested.
