Re: Help with driving
Firstly congratulations on taking the game up, it's a cracking sport... welcome to the addiction.Fixing your slice:
As for your driving issues, you can spend your money on clubs, or lessons. Clubs may help a little, but lessons will help a lot, especially when you are first starting! Your driving/slicing conundrum indicates lessons may help you more than a new club also.
Alternatively, you can film your swing and post it in the forums here and people can give you advice: http://thesandtrap.com/playing_tips/filming_your_swingHybrid & Club Distances:
The pga tour average for a hybrid is 225 yards carry, 237 total.
All the forum members are trying to say here is that as a beginner, it is not likely that you are hitting the ball consistently well and 10-27% further than the PGA tour professionals, so please don't be offended.Other:
Finally, a very obvious point. Golf is about precision and not just distance. So why are you trying to use the same club you hit 250-300 yards, to hit a 165 yard shot? Your distances you hit each club are unique to you, and the conditions on the course, but take a look at the following just to get an idea: http://golf.about.com/od/beginners/l/blclubdistance.htm
Hope that helped... oh and if you're a troll "few cough"
