  1. Hitting driver very high

    thanks for the reply
  2. So.. i`ve posted a few times and now i have a new problem. I started using my driver again and I seemed to have fixed my hook and slice. That advice that someone gave about the elbow being high and trying to keep the elbows to gather worked wonders. I`m also hitting the irons very well lately but I seem to be always a few yrds right of my target. then when I aim left of the target it i hit straight.. /////Forehead slap Besides that I dropped my score from 115 2 weeks ago to 94 last week. That had a lot to do with my Driver finally working. I was slamming balls to around 260-270 yrs (rolling) But 8/10 tee shots whould only go about 240-250 and seem to die out very fast. I went to the driving range to keep my driver in check and a local pro gave me some free advice and told me the reason my ball is going so high and dieing off is because I`m using a iron swing. He says i`m coming down at the ball and not up with it.. What does that mean..?? I dont want to screw up my irons shots. So is there a diffrence between hitting a iron and a wood? Any drills or tips??? Thanks
  3. As the great adam sandler said.. Tap tap tap. Tap it in!
  4. So its been awhile since i`ve posted and I hope this is going in the right spot. I`'ve droped my handicap into the low 100's. My irons are doing great and so is my short game finally. I`m 2 putting all 18 still working on that =).. But here is the problem.. Out of the blue i`ve started to hook and slice the ball while driving. I`ve adjusted my grips worked on my swing path etc but still get very bad hooks and slices and i have to thing its my club facing at impact. I took 2 pictures to show you whats going on.. It feels like i`m ethier breaking my wrist to late or to soon at impact any tips or drills?
  5. Slice with driver

    I had the same issue when i first started. I fixed it... and now for some reason I have it again. The first time I fixed it because my grip wasn't good. My club head was open at impact. So switched grips and i was nailing them down the fair way so take a look at that.. Once I fixed my grip I started hooking the ball hard which again was a grip problem (my club head was closed at impact). So now i`m back to slicing the ball and i think it has to do with my over swing path haha.. Good luck
  6. My golf game.

    Thanks just ordered it =)
  7. My golf game.

    is horrible =) So im new to the forum and i`ve posted a intro now its to the fun part. I`m a pretty new golfer when it comes to frequency of playing. I`ve been playing for three years and i`ve always shit in the low 100's. I usually get about 5-6 times a year and go with my cop or fire fighter buddies and we get smashed. I use to always rent clubs and never took golf seriously but loved playing it. My golf game or perception on golf changed last xmas when my wife bought me a club set. Since jan i`ve been out about 7 times with another buddy of mine. We are sober when I play with him and we both have the same scores. Low 100s and i`ve broken high 90's once or twice. I always though about going to a pro but i`m not sure if i want to spend 100 bucks for a hr. ( i know its worth it). I`ve seen a lot of people post videos on here and I plan on video taping my self next time i`m at the range. Speaking of the range. I have learned the hard way of playing a full 18. If I start missing shots (which I do a lot) I try to adjust or try something new while im playing. i`ve realized this is a bad idea lol because i miss more shots. When i first started playing golf I had a amazing drive. 280-300 yrs thats when I hit it correctly(or so i though) My irons and short game sucked... I`d ethier worm burn it or top it 5 feet. For my pitching i`d ethier hit it like i should be wearing a purse or fly over the green to the next tee box. Its usually my short game that adds 1-2 strokes a hole. Or i miss that 10 ft putt. As i`ve been reading and watching videos my irons got better, my drives slice,hook and not i drive as far as i can hit my 5 iron. My short game has been producing shots on the green.. Now instead of being over the green i`m about 5/10 on the green or i hit it to short. I love this game and i want to get better. I already know I have some problems.... My grip... I can never find the same grip its all over the place... I also never swing the same way... When i top my irons or even drive it seems i am hitting the ground before impact... LOL.. If anyone has any advice ( i know see a pro) Any drills or any good videos that are free. Please feel free to let me know... Also i`ve seen a lot of review for the simple golf swing or perfect golf swing.. 29 bucks... Are these programs any good..

  9. good day...

    Hello all, This is my first post to the forum and I just wanted to say hi =). I`m a 30yr horrible golfer haha. I started playing with brother inlaw about 3 years ago and i`m improved a lot but still need some help(alot). I live in FL (south) and I work as a paramedic so i`m hoping to use all my free time to get better lol. The past few weeks I have been hitting the course more and more and i`m come to this forum to talk to some pro's, people with the same problems but most of all I love talking about golf. I also have a 7 yr old who has been itching to play with his dad. Looking for Jr club prices haha as week speak.. Have a good day,
