Short term goals(this year):   -Shoot a par round of golf (I shot 1 over a week ago!) -Get down to a 3 handicap (currently at a 6.2) -To not get mad and always focus on the shot at hand   Mid term goals(the next 2-3 years):   -Get to a scratch or better handicap -Get rid of debt and save money for tournaments, golf, instruction, etc. -Move to Florida   Long term goals(2016 and on):   -Play competitively -Pick up sponsors -Compete in mini...
If I'm playing a round of golf, I clean it off so the grooves are clear.  If I play a tournament round, I make sure the whole clubface looks good, I don't know how much it helps but mentally, it makes me feel like I'm ready to hit a ball without any distraction or obstruction.   When I'm practicing on the driving range, I clean the club but I leave the debris in the grooves BECAUSE I practice a lot and I don't want to wear out my grooves from hitting range balls when...
A common mistake is that many amateurs are at a nice position at address, but in between the backswing and downswing, they move forward towards the ball and in turn, the ball hits the hosel.   A good drill to try if you think you might be moving towards the ball is thinking about following through with your weight going to your left heel.   Or another one, take your setup, put a chair behind you so the back of the chair is maybe an inch or two away from your...
Talent is overrated.  Let's take a look at one of the most "natural" and "talented" golfers in the history of golf or maybe the history of sports all together, Tiger Woods.   I'm borrowing this from the book "Talent is Overrated" by Geoff Colvin by the way:   "Wood's father, Earl, was a teacher, specifically a teacher of young men, and he had a lifelong passion for sports." "Earl had plenty of time to teach his son and was intensely focused on doing...
Great job!!!!  5-10 times last year is quite a bit so I don't know if I'd judge a month and a half as being fair ;) but nonetheless that's great!   You pinpointed it that the short game was your problem.  It's the fastest way you're going to knock off strokes so make sure you give that a lot of time to practice.   I was the same way sort of, I picked up the game for the first time and played maybe about 10 times shooting 100-120.  I fell in love and really worked...
Very true about the fake sellers and clubs.  The nice thing is that you can usually tell certain vendors on eBay sell A TON of clubs.  Just make sure you check their seller rating and feedback.  Many sellers you'll see has a 100 percent rating at 20,000 or so.  Very reputable but yes make sure you buy from one of those sellers.
Yes eBay is a great place for new clubs for sure!
Thank you very much for the reply.  Yes I'm very flexible on moving anywhere and also it would be very long term.   And yes also, weather is the most important thing I'd say, temperatures and precipitation are key.   Thanks again!
Hello everyone,   I'm eventually looking to move somewhere warmer to be able to progress all year round on my golf game.   Can some of you shed some light on the Jacksonville area or Florida in general as where would be the best places/areas to be living to immerse myself in golf with awesome courses and resources and all that?   Thanks everyone!
Thanks everyone, and thanks for those last couple of posts. All is well, I'm improving and working on my goals. I just paid off my student loans and I'm going to become debt free before 2013 ends. That's about 43k in a year which is crazy, one of my big goals that will definitely help along the road. I've been getting fit, I've lost 20 pounds and am really trying to be conscientious of staying fit and injury free. I've been working with golftec still to create a sound...
