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

money... thats the biggest issue for me...

as far as the actual game itself... distance...
ive popped a few good ones in my time... but the majority are around 200-250 range... mostly on the southside of 230... its really tough getting girs on alot of par4's when you are swinging long clubs for approach shots... therefore it puts alot of pressure on scoring on par5's and par3's

based on the consensus here, i am going to give tiger a call demanding some money, so we can all work less and play more.

Actually the last two weeks it has been the weather - cold and rainy in Houston.

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

Like many of us, for me it is time. With two kids and a wife who works from home, I basically have time for 9 holes a week (on a "long lunch" ), but rarely any range time. Maybe I can hit wiffle balls in the backyard or swing a trainer in the garage. That being said, I have been improving steadily, I dropped my average for 9 holes by about 3 strokes this year, I now consider myself a true bogey golfer.

Sorry...a silliy thought, but if you replace girs with "girls" it reads the same.

it should be easier to get girls with longer clubs on approach shots

A lack of talent would be the main thing at the moment

Definitely time for me... can usually only get out once a week, twice if i'm lucky... and I haven't been to the range in a month! My tee shots have gone back to slices without much practice lately

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

At first I would have said time,but unlike other sports I have played,I started this one at 35 yrs old.
Too late,I learn quickly but my body is getting older.So golf is more than just a score for me really,but that won't stop me going for it.

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

If i were to pick one thing, i guess it would be driver. Im ok with it most of the time, but when my driver gets wild, it gets really wild. Im talkin 100 yards wide type of misses. Its nearly impossible for me to even break 80 when im swinging the driver like that.

If I could make putts of any significant length (10 - 15/20 feet) on a consistent basis, I wouldn't be so bad at golf.

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

Simple, an over active left hand. It was a huge mistake to play right handed when I'm a natural lefty. At the time there were very few lefty clubs and parents thought they were helping by having a left handed kid learn to play right handed. There was even some nonsense that it was preferable. Baloney. I'm glad current thinking has switched the other way. The stronger hand should not be in front. You can pick out a few isolated examples where it has worked but in the vast majority of cases the strong lead hand has a tendency to want to do too much, leading to erratic results. It feels like stealing now that I'm chipping left handed with a docile lead hand, but at this age I'm having difficulty making the transition to lefty in my long game.

My swing. I can bomb the ball out to about 280 and sometimes 300 yards but have a hard time keeping it straight. I'm ok with being twenty yards from the green in the rough as opposed to sixty or seventy yards out in the fairway. Just those damn sand traps... and the trees! Ouch!

Driver. If I drive the ball well, even if my iron play is not at my strongest, I usually score well because my short game is normally fairly decent.
