Yesterday, in 35 degree weather (and in a tournament!), I hit a 4 iron 195 yards into the wind to about 3 inches. As we were walking to the green, 2 tournament officials and a parent all passed me and said something along the lines of "great shot!' Nobody in my group realized how close it was until we got up there and saw it sitting practically on the edge of the hole. Closest to a hole-in-one I've ever gotten 
I sadly only have 4 in my last 20. I live in a somewhat small town, and we only have 2 golf courses anywhere near here; 1 public and 1 is private country club. I only get to play at the CC during high school season, as it's where we practice, and it is SUCH a fun course. So I haven't gotten to play there since October, but hopefully July will come quick so I can get back to playing it! 
I played in a 2 day tournament Saturday and Sunday.   Saturday was almost 70 degrees, and I was burning up in the slacks and golf shirt I was wearing.   Sunday was 35 and sleeting. I was wearing 4 layers and was still cold. Not to mention we got about an inch and a half of snow last night.   Today it's about 40, and the snow's already melted, and tomorrow it will be 68. Weather has never made me so frustrated before. 
2 main things:   1) like Hammer 4 said, one piece takeaway. Turn with your shoulders, keep the same position with your wrists for the first few feet of the backswing   2) to stop the pull hook miss, post up onto your left side. this involves sliding your hips SLIGHTLY forward to start your downswing, and then getting your weight all the way to your left foot at impact. If that doesn't help, also feel like you're pulling your right elbow into your side on the...
Being 16 years old, I have never had the chance to play with the old persimmon woods or blades of "yesteryear." However, I've always been intrigued by them. I've heard they're harder to hit, but feel great when you do hit one solid. I'm already what I consider a pretty good ball-striker, but I'm always wanting to get better. Do you guys think that buying an old set of clubs and using them for a month or 2 at a time would help my game? I'm really wanting to try some blades,...
I'd love to have the creativity and confidence that some of the guys have around the greens. I am very much an up in the air player - flops, open face pitches, lots of 60* wedges in my round. I would love to be able to play a bump and run with the feel that the pros do.
 I usually do play the ball down and don't use any mulligans (If I do I usually just use 1 or 2), but sometimes when I'm playing with friends we'll give each other putts, like match play. We never really do wagers (as I typically play with guys who are better than me) but we will say "Okay, this is for the *insert major here*" and play exactly like we would in a PGA tournament, in which case I usually hang with these guys up until the last 5 or 6 holes when I typically...
Whenever I'm playing by myself or with a few friends I always play really well - usually shoot low-mid 70s, I've even shot in the high 60s a few times. But, whenever I play in a tournament I always play AWFUL - I've only broken 80 3 times in about 20 tournaments this year. I actually shot +1 on 11 holes yesterday and then went and shot 86 on 18 today. I know there's nothing wrong with my swing, it's all mental, but does anybody have any tips to help? Much appreciated.
I've been Playing Golf for:​ 14 Years My current handicap index or average score is: 76 My typical ball flight is: Used to be a baby cut, has turned into monster (Push?) slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slice (Or Push slice)     Videos:  
Hey guys! I'm 15, and I'm just getting back into junior golf after taking a 3 year "extended hiatus." (I actually quit golf, but I'm playing again, so who cares?)   I had never played an 18 hole tournament until last month, and I ended up playing pretty well - I finished T5, 5 shots off the lead. The thing I realized after the tournament is that I went into it with no game plan. I could only hit fades then, and I decided to get aggressive on a few holes on a limb and...
