Played a round today and knocked 7 strokes off my game. It was easy. I skipped the 18th hole. Actually, I got rained out 
I started playing golf but after playing for four years I noticed I was getting worse instead of better. It got so bad that I could expect to hit only about two out of 18 fairways on my drive and my pitching game was all over the place so I got so frustrated that I completely gave up golf and sold my clubs.

I took his advice and made sure my main focus was to watch my club move the blades of grass. Many times the ball landed before I even lifted my head, but the results were...
Saw this instructional video on chipping from Jim Furyk and it was very helpful to this beginner. I never before considered chocking down on my irons and taking a putting stance, but I tried this and was amazed at the results it produced.  
 The pleasure I get from playing a round decreases proportionally to how fast I play a round
