So i just started working at a golf course in the restaurant about a month ago, i got moved into the pro shop and started playing about 3 weeks ago. I was slicing the ball as badly as one possibly could. After about 5 or 6 times hitting the driving range i am now hitting the ball very straight the only problem is that 50% of the time i hit it perfect and the other 50% im hitting before the ball causing it to go way short. How do i fix this? Also what score should i be shooting for? I hit the first 4 holes after hours today and it was only my third time every playing a real course. I missed a chip on to the green that would of given me a par put...ended 1st hole with a double. Went to the second and put first shot in woods, chipped out, drove the ball to the rough on the side of the green, chipped on and sank the put for a bogey. 3rd hole I drove the green and missed the birdie put and sank the par. The fourth hole is a long par 5 and i hit my second and third shot a combined 30 yards, and still got away with a double bogey. I finished the 4 holes with a +5. I was pretty excited about the par but was upset with how else i played. Is that a decent score for just being my 3rd time like i said before. Thanks for the input and help!
