The big thing about Orlando when it comes to where you want to live is not so much the traffic, but the toll roads which can be a bit pricey.  That's why people generally live closer to where they work, to avoid the tolls.   I believe you can get from any place to any place without hitting the tolls, it will just take a lot longer.   The Apopka area is actually pretty nice and when you get closer to Clermont you're looking at a place that is quite hilly.   As far as...
I think it's something you may have to practice a bit. I would also suggest looking at the ball position. It should be up front. However, I've found on uphill bunker shots I actually need to play the ball *back* in my stance. Haven't really understood why it works, but it does. The other thing is that you need to follow through with a bunker shot, many amateurs don't do that. You may also have the face a bit too far open. But again, I suggest trying to get some...
I've never had real close calls myself, but I've witnessed two of them. One time me, a buddy, and some stranger were playing on a par 3. Adjascent to it was a par 5, but the hole was tree lined. Still a dangerous hole because if you hit a hook it goes in the other fairway, landing about where every hits their driver on the other hole. My buddy gets up, his a slight draw, but with a little pull. We didn't even yell four since we figured it probably hit the tree and...
I agree with certain parts of Moe's swing, but the big flaw I see with his swing is the lack of body rotation. Moe wasn't known for distance and his lack of body rotation was why. Also, it can be difficult to hit is straight if you don't have proper hip rotation. But the best things to take away from Moe are how his hands are high at address and how he gets the arms extended at impact. 3JACK
Depends on the person and the time. I think the thing I don't like is having to look for golf balls every three holes or somebody who loses their temper a lot and somebody who asks too many questions on the game. But I've played with 12+ handicappers all of the time who play from the whites and have enjoyed it. I think the preference of playing with low handicappers just comes from it being easier and I can focus on the task at hand instead of helping out with the other...
I would suggest buying a camcorder. You will need it if you want to get lessons and you don't have to be a golf swing expert for it to be an invaluable tool for you to improve. Generally I suggest that if you want to take a serious step to improving, work on no more than 2 things at once...or you'll just get confused and get worse and I suggest trying to fix the biggest problems with your game first. Other than that, I suggest doing things to help improve your...
Well, it's frustating for those who know the golf swing and have to deal with other instructors, particularly well known ones, that contradict themselves all of the time. That being said, a lot of times a flaw in the golf swing can cause a golfer to make one of two or even three moves after that flaw. For instance, somebody who takes the club too far inside on the takeaway may wind up looping the club up over the top or they may do the opposite and come too far from...
I'd also suggest a chiropractor if you can afford it. Where I used to live I had a very affordable chiropractor and even though it was a pain to start coming in 3 times a week, it was well worth it. Not only did it considerably cut down my back pain, but for one year I didn't have a cold or any sinus problems. It's debatable whether that was do to going to the chiropractor, but I can't think it was just some odd coincidence. The problem is that chiros are expensive,...
This is kind of a tough show for me to watch since I think it has golf going in the wrong direction. Because these kids have parents who have money, they are put at a considerable advantage when it comes to playing college golf. I squeeked onto my team because I knew somebody who knew my college coach, but when I got on the team it was loaded with considerably lesser players from wealthier families who could get into programs like this or junior tournaments. These kids...
Muscles have almost nothing to do with distance. For instance, Tiger Woods is far more muscular today than he was when he first came on tour. Yet he his driver distance is the SAME in 2008 and 2007 as it was in 1997. Distance is determined by flexibility and then rotating the body properly. If you want to gain proper distance, the shoulders need to rotate at least 120 degrees and then the hips need to rotate on the downswing to the point where the belt buckle is facing...
