TURNING PRO/ SCRATCH

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

(age 22) 

 

Played golf for around 3 years, but only casually for the first 2 years. Taken it seriously for 11months after I received my original handicap of 16, but have been cut to 7 since then. Hitting driver on a good day between 260-300, solid yardages with most of clubs down to gap wedge going around 105/110. 

 

Really looking for a career in golf, whether it be as a club pro or a tour player (aim high!). Am going to give myself 2 years to get my handicap down to scratch/ +'s. How realistic would that be? And does anyone have any tips towards going down this road? 

and what would peoples advice be in my practicing any drills and any focus areas towards achieving this goal?

 

cheers

Good thread on practice

Other than that I have no idea what your issues might be, so it's tough to say what you need to work on.  If you want to learn more about the swing, check this out http://thesandtrap.com/f/4088/swing-thoughts

 

If you're looking for a capable instructor, then it would be good to ask him these questions http://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/the_instructor_quiz_nine_questions_youve_gotta_ask

Tune your game from 100 yards and in and tune that part between your ears. Precise short game, become mentally tough and good luck.
