Hi from Quebec

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

I just realized I never did an introduction thread!

 

So I am 28, from Quebec City, Canada. I am a video game network programmer. I started playing golf about 7 years ago, but only started playing regularly last summer. Before it was only 2-3 rounds per year, and I played something like 25 rounds last summer. I also play left handed, the only one I know in everyone I play golf with, so everytime I miss a shot, you can be sure I hear someone say: you should try playing the other way around!

 

I am currently practicing at an indoor facility with simulators because it is totally impossible to play around here in winter. Courses should be playable in April (late March if we are really really lucky with the temperature). I am also taking some lessons this winter (still have a constant fade that switches into a slice every 4-5 shots) and I'd like to get rid of that.

 

Last year, I was playing around 110-115 at the beginning of summer, and at the end, my last 3 rounds were under 100 (98-94-96). I hope to play under 90 this year!

 

For my equipment, if anyone is interested

Driver: Taylormade RBZ

3 wood: Taylormade RBZ

5 wood: Taylormade RBZ

4 hybrid: Macgregor tourney

irons (5-6-7-8-9-P-G): Wilson Di11 (I also have a 4 iron, but I keep it out of bag for the hybrid, way easier to hit)

56 wedge and 60 wedge: Wilson

Putter: Nancy Lopez putter (I am built quite short and like to lean a lot over the ball when putting, so a smaller putter made for a women really fits for me)

 

So that is me. Feel free to ask anything, I don't bite!

OH NO the French Canadian!!! I kid I kid :-D

 

If you are going to invest in lessons, get a membership to Evolvr. Online video swing analysis. Cheaper than getting golf lessons in person, and will beat anything except a live instruction with a 5 key's instructor.
