My oldest Grandson can hit the ball off the tee, straight, and averages 290 yards. He swings a lot John Daly did in his younger days. We have won a couple of best ball tournaments, due to his driving. He usually out drives me by 60-70 yards.
Problem is that he has no talent around the greens, or on approaches to those greens. Absolutely none. Myself and others have tried get some finesse into his game. Just doesn't have the knack for any thing more than swinging as hard as he can.
He just graduated with a degree in teaching. He was a sucessful football player, and wants to coach in that sport. Although his "natural" sport was football, he can still drive a golf ball tour length at a moments notice.
Just drives me nuts sometimes when we play.
The one thing I dislike is when the pace of play is very slow....Sitting at the tee box for over 5 minutes waiting for the people ahead of you who are waiting for the people ahead of them is just aggravating. It is like you get loose, then get cold and have to loosen up all over again. Hard for me to get a rhythm going when you have delays before every shot you make...
