Going from a 14 handicap to the US Open is quite the task, no matter how recently you picked up the game.


That's what I remember, but 14 is what is says right now.

 

My son has roughly the same handicap, but aspires to be something other than a golfer.

 

However, kelzz, is really into golf. He has the passion and the desire to get in the low single digits. Maybe...

Day 5

Long day today, but a great one. Got up at 3:30am to set up my practice net, and took hits from 4am to about 5:45-ish and then got ready for school. I worked out at TNT, felt great, but was unable to take to the course. Tomorrow will be a long day, though! Saturday baby!

 

Like promised, heres some videos of my "new and improved" swing. I've been working to get a more explosive pull down and push at contact, like Tiger. Thoughts?

 

Pardon the light and only view of the lower body, it was really dark and raining out in the morning. 

 

8-iron

He was, this is a quote from the third page of his swing thread when he first came here. I'm guessing he had a couple of good rounds right after coming back, but then the pattern devolved into the all too familiar inconsistency that many of us know.

Cheers!

 

 

EDIT: This post is not meant to bash in any way, that's not my intention here. Just answering a question. There was that Nick character who came around the same time though who appeared to have a similar situation.

Also, I'm glad that Kelzzy finally got some better camera angles even if they aren't in great lighting.

The best way for a High HC to score in the 70's is to quit after about 15 holes.............LOL

 

BTW..nice swing videos in the pitch black of night.

That may be the first thing that you've said that we agree on…

Funny thing is that I think you've probably got a chance to be a good golfer...As soon as you get just a little bit of humility you might even become bearable to be around.

 

Don't worry. Golf is a great teacher of humility once you start playing competitively.

Well you'll need to work on that. If you want to shoot in the 70s you'll need to learn how to breath.

If your comment is directed towards anyone in this thread, from what I've seen none of them are idiots and I think they deserve more respect than what you've shown. It would be really cool if you did accomplish your goal and I think many of us "idiots" would be happy for you. 

 

If your goal is to play golf at a professional level, wouldn't you want to bring your communication and interaction skills to that level as well? Think about the guys on tour - they all have giant egos but they're (usually) careful about what they say in the media.

 

It's good to be confident but as others have posted, a little humility might go a long way.

Improper punctuation.

 

Bummer when one screws up an English critical post!

David,

 

Proper form for an ellipsis is three dots, each separated by a space. I was once firmly admonished for this same error by an old editor of mine.

 

Sorry to be so hypercritical, but my inner grammar nazi overcame me and I posted without even considering what I was doing. :-(

There are also preformed ellipsis, and…

Tell him to pound sand!  While the 3-dot ellipsis is certainly more traditional for an aposiopesis, I'd call the use of 4-dots more non-standard than improper.

 

At least that's the excuse on which I'm going to hang my hat!   :-P

 

Ok, I know, back on topic...
