Hi Everyone!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi! I'm new to the forum and to Golf to an extent. I'm 23, from Greater London and have *technically* played since I was a child, but I never played consistently due to anger and concentration problems. You might be able to tell by my username! Anyway I've recently started playing consistently, hoping to play twice a week with a session at a driving range or two thrown in as I have been doing for the past few weeks.


I'm only playing 9 holes at the moment, generally ending with a score of about 60-65 on average which is an improvement as I've seen scorecards from a few years back and there were a few 70s and 80s in there.  I'm pretty hopeless when driving off, however my putting has improved and I'm coming close to finishing most green's within 2 puts.


Anyway, I thought this would be a good place to get some tips! At the moment my biggest problem seems to be just hitting the ball correctly, the main reason why my scoring is so high is because I can hit a bogey or par on one hole, and then hit 5 or 6 over on another...long holes and short gains I've told myself! I'm sure the natural swing will come to me in the end, but I'm enjoying it all anyway even with the hole's I'd wish would swallow me up ha.
