New Oklahoma 'hacker'

3 posts in this topic


Hey everyone, I live in this great state called Oklahoma. My Father-In-Law got me hooked on golf this summer and I've been hacking away trying to learn and play whenever I can. I have a cheap set of generic clubs that I bought off the neighbor for 30 bucks and already broke the head off of my 6 iron! For my birthday I received the TaylorMade RBZ driver, which compared to the driver I had I obviously love. I've been on this forum for a little while but just discovered this part and thought I would come say hello. If there is anyone in the south west part of Oklahoma feel free to hit me up and lets play a round! Obviously I'm not very good but I have a pretty quick rate of play so I won't hamper anyone down very much!

Welcome!  If you have a chance to play in Norman, let me know.

I played at Quartz Mountain once - had fun there.  Where do you play in Altus?

If I'm ever up that way I'll holler! I play at quartz 95% of the time because my brother works there. Which means when he comes out with me, all I ever pay is $10 for a golf cart and $5 for range balls. Can't beat 18 holes for 10 bucks!

    • My Swing (saevel25)
      By saevel25 · Posted
      Refresh what I need to do. Some comparisons between those last two drives and the rest of the round. 

      Good Drives I did the following
      I got into a good set up and grip. I made sure I wasn't on my heels. I shortened the swing, swing felt more in control and compact. 

      Bad Drives
      These drives just felt very fast and out of control. Backswing felt fast. Downswing felt super fast. I was hitting either low on the clubface or low and heel on the clubface. One I almost topped the ball with the heel. 

      -I am just hitting the heel of the putter a ton. I also apparently can't aim my putter. I keep aiming way right. I just don't feel comfortable making a stroke right now. The putter just feels horrible in my hands right now. 

      I plan on practicing from now on. I haven't really hit the range in a few months.

      Good point on it being up to me to practice what I am taught. One thing I left out above is I have an indoor ( bubble ) driving range just two miles from my house that offer some great rates for practicing and is right on my way home from work which will be a great help. 
    • Picking the right Golf Instructor

      Golfers see the most benefit from instructors they can talk to easily and get along with; obviously you also want them to be very knowledgeable about the swing.  As such, I'd suggest one of two things 1) take a quick 30min lesson or so from each and see who you like the most / who's philosophy about golf matches yours the closest or 2) just go up to them and talk to them for a bit about lessons and how they approach it.  Keep in mind that taking lessons is great, but it really comes down to you practicing what they teach.  Also, if you are not seeing some type of improvement in a lesson or two, find a new teacher.  Good ones are able to help find results quickly, but as said before, it's up to you to repeat those results as best you can.
