New to the fourm, need some advice on what to do

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, my name is Charlie. I'm 15 years old from Minnesota and this is my second year being a serious golfer. I play about 4 rounds of 18 a week, and lately have been struggling with things that were recently my strong points. To start off, I'll share my clubs. I have a RBZ driver, Rbz 3wood, burner hybrid, Cleveland irons (not sure what model, they are a bit older), vokey wedges, and a nike drone putter.
At the moment I'm a 12 handicapper, however lately I've been shooting around 90 because of a few things. My drives have a tendency to be pushed right, leaving me with tough approach shots from the trees. I also have been pulling My short irons (7-9,pw). I really am struggling with those two things ATM. Before. I would hit a 275 yd drive consistently in the middle of the fairway, and hit a great approach, and was able to shoot low 80s. No I'm stuck playing close to bogy golf

Welcome to the forum @charliek98. Great to see how much you are playing and (hopefully) enjoying the game. There's a lot this site has to offer... I would recommend you get acquainted with the 5sk thread, which should really give you some important things to focus on, and also learn a little bit about the ball flight laws (tons of threads in here about that). That way you can self diagnose a little bit what's going on with your swing by observing your ball flight. 

 

If you're not already doing so, try getting some of your swings on video and uploading them on the member swings forum... just make sure to submit according to the rules laid out in there. If you're looking for a few quick tips you might get some people to chime in, but nothing beats being able to observe your swing and provide feedback off of that. 

 

best of luck!

Welcome to the site.

 

I would also say to start a "my swing" thread.
