I've just returned to golf after a five year absence ... life got too busy and also being honest I had reached a level of frustration with my game because I could not find a way to improve. I had managed to get my handicap down to 19, but seemed to be stuck in the 19-21 bracket. Historically my short game was generally ok but my distance is terrible. I don't hit the ball long mainly due to what I think is a bad reverse pivot habit ... I never learned properly as a kid when I took the game up. I was all arms and its only recently I finally had some lessons and learned about weight transfer etc. Problem is now at age 42 overcoming the habit of a lifetime is really difficult!
So anyway I returned to golf about six weeks ago, again off 19 (my club reactivated my old handicap) and I've been a bit all over the place. Worst round is 108, best 94 so far but generally I am stuck at 101 or so.
My distance is still terrible but I am passable enough on my good days. I'm determined to improve my game starting with the short game ... while I have always been a passable putter since coming back I know I am wasting so many shots leaving pitches and chips short and I'm certain I could knock 5-8 shots a round off if I can find some short game consistency.
Anyway I am keen to talk golf with those more experienced and try to find the right way to overcome the flaws in my game and improve!
