How long were you playing until you broke 100? - Page 2

post #19 of 24
It took me a year and a half, with a decent amount of lessons. First time was early last summer proceeded to keep it in the mid to low 90's all summer (save for a few bad rounds). However, once winter rolled around and play became more infrequent my game has slipped a bit. Haven't broke 100 since late November (didn't play in December/limited practice, one round in January, two in February, two in March). However, haven't shot over 103 so I've been close, just really suffering with pitching/chipping right now - so bad I had an entire lesson devoted to it a few days ago.

Stay patient. What I've been told from my instructor and friends who are low single digits is improvement comes in waves. You'll see your scores drop, then go up again, then drop more, then up again, etc. The important thing is recognizing where the improvement is needed and devoting lessons and/or practice to that.

Final piece of advice... My scores dipped below 100 once I made a serious commitment to practicing short game often. All of it from 100 yards in, including putting. All of the people I know who are awesome golfers were insistent on this, and they are right. Get chips/pitches within one putt range, eliminate three putts, you'll be good.

About two years. I played a season before but I didn't keep score or a handicap. Once I started keeping score and not giving myself mullis I would shoot 100, 101, 100, 104, 100 and on and on. Then I shot an 89. Just like that. Two years till I broke 90 again. Welcome to golf.

I know the first time I broke 100 in a competition it was the main junior stableford of the summer. Scored a 93 and got 50 points, was quite happy...

At a guess I would say it took me around 10-15 rounds to break a 100 but I had quite a few lessons with a coach and a lot time at driving range.

 

If you want to make fast progress, I would really recommend going to see your coach. You wont find a better improvement pound for pound over him.
