We were visiting relatives in Milwaukee, WI, when I was around 10 years old.  I got bored and took a walk to a near by golf course and watched some guys tee off and thought that would be neat to try. Unfortunately at the time we lived in the middle of no where. The closest golf course was probably 70+ miles away.    Fast forward to my junior year of high school, when me and my friends found out anyone could join the golf team at the small school we were attending.  Free...
Nice on the 92! I am going to have start thinking about getting a net so I can practice more at home.  I have about enough room to hit a sand wedge and that is about it.
Played league last night and shot a 54 from the blues, one under my handicap.  Happy with that I guess, still want those 40's scores for 9 holes.   I had 3 blow up holes, 2 of them water balls and on the other I chunked an approach shot, left my pitch short and 3 putted.      On the water ball holes, the 1st one I pushed a tee shot into a hazard; the second I pulled a 4I into a pond.  I didn't think I pushing my luck with either shot but I guess I could have teed off...
Nice Jim!
 Great job Gerald!  Congrats on the 98.
  @isukgolf I have been taking some lessons this summer and I do have some things I can practice.  The thing I really need to work on is getting my swing more inside out then outside in.  At my last lesson the things I was told to work on were keeping my lower body stable, keeping my arms in and swinging out. And no, I have not posted to the "My Swing" thread yet.  I think I will wait until after my last lesson this year.
Yesterday I learned the importance of practice...   Before yesterday I had not played or practiced since last Wednesday.  When I got to the course I found out I had just over an hour to play the front 9 because of Tuesday night women's league. So I rented a cart and did my version of speed golf. It was ugly. I finished the front in 55 minutes but with a 57.  The back 9 was more leisurely and I shot a 54.  I really struggled with my swing until about the last 3...
Though this is off topic from the thread I would have to disagree with your statement, at least as far as I am concerned.  I am shooting for a score it's just 20 strokes higher than the score you are shooting for.  
Played league last night and shot a 50.  I had one 8 and 3 6s on the night.  The rest of the holes were bogeys and 1 par.     On the 8 it was my classic 1st hole jitters, I topped my tee shot with my 5 wood, laid up in front of the ditch, then proceeded to top a 6i into the ditch, then my next shot went long and into the pond by the green.  Probably lucky I scored an 8! This seems to be a problem for me when playing a competitive round, I have trouble getting started on...
