Returning UK Golfer

Recommended Posts

Morning all from sunny Scotland (well sunny today!)


Thought i'd sign up after having a browse for the last few weeks, a little about me and my game. I used to play when i was 13-18 mainly as a school friend lived bang on the third hole of the local course so we could jump on late on play all the way to the 16th and then walk home! Got to 18 stopped playing as much as everyone moved away, girls and beer became a thing etc etc and didn't pick up a club until late 2018 oh and 15 years passed also!. Bought a second hand set of clubs from a friend and went out for a round with my BIL and 2 friends, really enjoyed it and even managed 2 pars and shot a 114, and that was the last time i played in 2018.

Played 4 rounds this year and its been the last 3 Sunday's and 1 midweek game, scores have been fairly consistent, 2 further 114 a 103 and then yesterday a 120! 

Thought it pop on say hello and hopefully pick up some tips and tricks along the way!

Hello from rainy (for the time being) Georgia.  This has been an odd week.  I met a Chinese guy who doesn't play Ping Pong...and now I find out that everybody in Scotland isn't a scratch golfer.  It's a funny old world sometimes.

    • Day 475 - April 16, 2021 Ten minutes downtown before Natalie showed up to do some work (before a lesson).
    • Day 5 - April 16, 2021 Another great range day. 2 hours of work on the elements from my Evolvr review. Strong grip and turning the left side down and under. Found a good trigger with the right heel to pull the left side down and maintain the tilt. Spend time slowing everything way down to impact to maintain the body turn and not stalling. Also did more full swing drills along with 1/2 of chipping with the strong grip. Finished with some putting for about 15 min. I have a round scheduled for tomorrow morning. 
    • Sounds like a good time. And y'all should have better weather this year.
    • I would assume McIlroy is in pretty good shape so resting HR would be something in the 60s. He's just on the tee about to hit and it's almost double that.  
    • @billchao, @nevets88, @jamo and I try to get together for a round every year. We generally try to meet in the middle. We are looking to see if other New England, NY and NJ members are interested to get an idea of numbers and location. No date has been set. Bill and I are going to Erie June 12 to 17, so that week is out.  There is also the meet up in Wisconsin in July that Bill is going to. It would be a weekend day.  Let us know if any of you would be interested and I can map out a place and a potential date.
