Money would allow me to make the time, i.e., I wouldn't have to work.
Agreed, if I didn't have to work I could spend more time playing and practicing. Mind you if I didn't work may be I would do others things than concentrate on golf....Catch 22 I guess.

Driver Accuracy - Off the tee with the Driver I am only hitting the fairway 45% of the time. While I still usually have a playable drive and my length (290) helps a bit, those 2 or 3 holes where I am scrambling from the trees really hurts my score. 3-wood off the tee isn't much better.

Re: Name one thing that is holding you back in golf.

Just one thing? That's hard. I think the underlying problem is time conflicts-- as a grad student with a family, it's hard to find a block of time during daylight hours to vanish to the course. Of course, playing a round per week is no more time than if I went to the gym for half an hour a day, but somehow it's "worse" to take the time in one chunk. Plus, I'd really rather play 2-3 times per week.

This leads to poor consistency, which manifests in the blow-up holes-- hard to break 50 (for 9 holes) when you've got a couple snowmen or worse every round and the rest of your holes average bogey on a good day...

I have very little confidence in my driver right now.

Has to be chipping, my touch comes and really goes. Stupid I haven't sorted it out yet as I am sure an hour with my pro and I could be a much better chipper.

My scoring

But really, partial swing shots. If I can't hit a full shot, I am extremely inconsistent.

Course Management.

I'm wayyyyy to aggressive.
I find it boring if I don't test myself though.

Money and time. I have so little of both. Also, not playing at all for half of the year kinda dampens your progress.

Re: Name one thing that is holding you back in golf.

For me its time and money. I dont have as much time as Id like to practice and play and I dont have the money to play as many rounds and go to the driving range as much as Id like.

Used to be a money problem. Now my biggest problems are time because of school and it is winter in Michigan=[

Re: Name one thing that is holding you back in golf.

Money is usually the biggest downside for me. Besides that, my driving accuracy is my biggest issue on the coarse seeing as I only find the fairway about 43% of the time.

But now I have to worry about this winter weather which is never fun...

Re: Name one thing that is holding you back in golf.

Laying a consistent swing on the ball. I'm still learning so I try not to get too frustrated when I ruin a hole with a poor shot. When I get it right making par seems straight forward but I'll always have those few holes where the wheels come off and the snowman (or worse) rears his head.

I'm always amazed how the pro's can recover from bad shots and escape terrible lies to salvage their mistakes more often than not.
