Always try to focus on 1 thing, not i need to think i do this and don't do that. And try to reconstruct what you did wrong. You start learning i my experience if you can feel what you do wrong. I know the first month i had no idea what you do wrong, you see a ball go far to the left and have no idea how it got there. Sure you know you had the clubhead open but how dit it happen at what part of the swing.
Hmm seems the handicap system is a lot more different in Netherlands or I just don't know the stableford rules that well. In our country when you want to lower your handicap you just walk a Q-card which require you to have more then 36 points to lower your handicap. So if you don't follow the rules on a hole you can't score there and simply can't just put down a 7 on a par 5 on the card. Or am i missunderstanding something now.
You have in mind what kind of things you offer to those who donate to the project? I mean would it be something for 30 you get the book for 50 you get it signed and that sort of things? Or is this something you still are thinking about.
I think the biggest problem with higher handicap is that you often can't shoot 9 out of 10 balls in the same direction and if you take a club which you can shoot futher it sometimes give you some nice distance on the fairway but you will also find yourself often in trouble if the ball goes left or right directly when you hit the ball and then you hit it pretty far in the woods, rough or whatever is at the sides of the fairway.   I'm also struggling at the moment with...
And don't assume that everyone who are on the golf can actually hit their balls good 9 out of 10 times. Even those who have 20-30 hcp have their bad days when they shoot a lot of their balls in the trees and cant make a good pitch or putt.   I know the first week when i started playing the 18 holes i didnt want to play with others cause i thought i would hold them up, ofcourse if you miss the ball 5 times without hitting it you would hold people up but if you still...
Would rather buy some big mushrooms that are white, cant count the times i thought that there was a ball when it was a freaking mushroom...
The club were I play have besides the normal 18 holes another 9 holes that is the par 3 course. Those holes are ideal to start learning to golf and also good to work on your short game, 9 holes par 3 costs around 40-50 minutes to complete so if you want to work on your short game that course is ideal for that.   I didn't play very long on the par 3 cause i got my club hcp pretty quick, think it took me total of 3 weeks to get access to the 18 holes course. Once i...
While i don't know any players i personally dislike players who dress themselves as clowns. Don't think I need to call out any names. I find it odd that pretty much all golfclubs have rules about how to dress but everyone is ok with people dressing themselves in the weirdest outfits. Just odd in my opinion.
The drop is always the option it just is the question if you want to move back to the teebox to do the shot again. I play a lot alone myself and it is annoying but for me best solution on the couple of holes it is really annoying is to just shoot it short, if you play alone scoring isnt the biggest factor for me anyway it is about if i make the shots good. Or if you don't want to loose the balls just don't play that hole but i'd imagine if you have several holes...
