Simple to take care of. remove a wedge from your bag and add a chainsaw.

I still don't play golf nearly as much as I would like, or can. That being said, I have managed to drop my handicap lower than it ever has before.

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
Couldn't have said it better. I'm in the same boat as you.

For those seeking distance, try Tour Tempo. With Tour Tempo, you will be swinging faster, and thus the ball will go farther. You can see this forum's discussion here. http://www.thesandtrap.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20607

read the book... tried the techniques... all it does is give me a mean hook... makes my backswing really quick but my downswing more out of control... like swinging out of my shoes... funny thing is... i actually lost distance... lolz

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

I'm pretty concentrated when I play. I never really hit a bad shot because of lack of focus. 90 yards and in is my "bread & butter" (Guiliani quote), I really feel confident with a wedge and a putter in my hands. I just think I think too much about a previous shot. I don't let it go. That's probably my biggest flaw.

Loss of concentration/mental breakdowns during a round - I've had several rounds this summer in the mid to high 70's where I am anywhere from +3 to +5 in a two to three hole stretch.

That's stuff you just can't teach or crack open a Harvey Penick book and understand.

The question is how many is that?

I played about 70 maybe 75 rounds this year (51 posted, the rest out of season). Compared to most golfers that is quite a bit. Compared to the guys at my club it isn't very much.

i will give you one guess as to who my wife compares me to and one more to guess who i compare myslef to...LOL

Tiger because you are never home and Tiger because everyone wishes they were as good as Tiger...or use to anyway.

Putting. Without a doubt, putting. I know it's simply practice but I never seem to do enough. Doh!

not sure really....the "right" practice maybe.

Controlling my swing, speed,tempo, and length.

Poor shape.  I'm nowhere near fat but golf is more or less my only form of exercise at the moment and it's totally insufficient.

Interesting question.. I think I answered it before, but I'm too lazy to search, so I'll answer it again.

LACK OF ACCURACY with shorter clubs !!!!!!!!!!!       For the "easy" approach shots say from 130 and in ... I can't get it close - my distance control is good as I'm usually pin high and on the green somewhere, or just off the green --- BUT --- I could be 40 ft left or right ... which puts so much pressure on the short game getting down in 2.       I would love to get my approach shots within 15 ft consistently - just can't seem to do it.      I am afraid I'll forever be a ham fisted wedge player ....

Iron play. I am straight, and above average off the tee, and my short game is good, but my iron play is inconsistent.
