Returning UK Golfer

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.

    • Look as if my driving improvement is on track. I hit 6/7 fairways this morning, the other I was barely in the second cut.  Not going to complain about distance, even if the driver I am finding the short stuff with is 20 yards shorter than the driver I was gaming last season. KId pulled an old Ping G400 off the shelf and told me to try it, It works! Very forgiving, and long enough for me.....
    • I own a U-iron (gap wedge loft, I think Ping calls it a utility iron?) and a 50 degree Ping Glide in that loft.  I alternate them depending how I feel.  Right now, I'm on the U-iron, and I made two full swings with it that hit the green.  Sadly, neither was for GIR, but that's hardly that club's fault  
    • My fault, he came to me for a putting lesson and I taught him everything I know. Didn't I pick Xander?
    • My Dad was a purist... but not very sports savvy.  I grew up in St. Louis and when he learned the players on the Cardinals weren't from St. Louis that was it for him.  So for my Dad, the game was ruined years ago.
    • Looks like @onthehunt526 and I made the same pick (true I was first though), but Jordan needs to go on a run if he's going to get to -14 and win.
