It may be better to post this in the open forum.   You may get better results.   Good luck.  

Thanks. Pretty new here!

All Handicaps can be fixed with time and effort.

Find a range that is open, Find a good instructor, work on contact in the full swing, get to the gym and improve your range of motion and strength. If you have the space get a putting green inside and work on the 3-6' putts.

Just don't stay idle over the winter.

Great tips! Thanks. Doing all that except the lessons. Just can't afford it at this point in life

Get a metal ruler to practice putting.

 

Try the online coaching if you need less cost. A good set of lessons can be had for less than $400 private and less than $150 in groups. It is worth the time and $ to make sure you are doing things correctly.

Practice doesn't make perfect it makes permanent and the hardest thing to do for higher handicap is to know what to work on and not what corrects the ball flight for that day. Get good fundamentals. It will save you years of pain.

    • For something like a driver, grip down for awhile before you make a decision.
    • My club sent out a letter just last week because of inquiries.  I copied and pasted the pertinent items outlined below. The Waterside Grill/Banquets/Special Events: 1. Detailed cleaning policy of the entire establishment, every 2 hours, set in place and strictly monitored. 2. Sit down restaurant dining has been eliminated to adhere to social distancing requirements. 3. Take-out orders are available based on limited menu. 4. Curb side pick-up available upon request. 5. No gathering of more than 10 people and social distancing within the building observed of 6 feet. 6. Cancellation/postponing of all scheduled events and community activities. 7. Special “Family Style” dinners for take-out and catering orders being offered. 8. Take out of mixed beverages allowed with food orders. Golf Operations: 1. Detailed cleaning policy of the entire establishment, every 2 hours, set in place and strictly monitored. 2. Social distancing of 6 feet per person required and no gathering of more than 10 people. 3. Golf cart ridership restricted to one person per cart (exception for family members only) 4. Flagpoles to remain in hole at all times. Flagpoles cleaned 2+ times per day. 5. Rakes removed from sand traps. 6. Driving range closed until further notice. Putting green open and flagpoles removed. 7. Removal of sand bottles and coolers from golf carts. 8. Golf carts cleaned and disinfected after each round. 9. Cancellation of all scheduled tournaments and events. 10. Elimination of all shot-gun starts to minimize crowd size in favor of tee times. 11. Remove water stations on golf course and provide bottle water for free. 12. Elimination of course beverage cart. Snacks, beverages and ice bags available in Pro Shop. Fitness Center: 1. The Fitness Center is closed until the COVID-19 social distancing requirement is removed. 2. Membership fees for the fitness center are suspended until the center is reopened. Tennis Courts: 1. Detailed cleaning policy of tennis court area, every 2 hours, set in place and strictly monitored. 2. Water stations removed. The club is doing all it can to remain open and keep as many of the employees working as they possibly can.  Our club is within a city that is solely within a gated community.  The golf course is more busy every day than it has ever been because of the "stay at home" order from the county.  Also, the golf course is considered to be a "park" and has not really had any issues staying open....so far.  What we do have to do is practice social distancing.   Also, the golf course is only open to members and their guests.  Outside players unaccompanied by a member...not allowed.   The county sheriff can show up at any time to make sure all the precautions required are in place and being observed.  As far as golf membership dues are concerned...we are paying what we always pay.    
    • Good stroke there. We didn’t film down the line but it’s a great way to practice (with the sticks) for the path.
    • HI, I was wondering if I should shorten the length of my daughter's Ladies Rogue Driver. And if it needs to be re weigh after shortening? I did ask the store. One person said I should shorten, another person said no.  My daughter picked up golf 1 year ago and she is 5'3 (with shoes) wrist to floor 30.75 in. Her driver is 44.5 in (standard length). She is small and her swing power within the range of a ladies flex. Her driver distance is 150 to 180 yards. And she does slice the ball.  The Ping chart says to -1 inch. Not sure if it only refers to irons or includes drivers as well. any inputs would be great!
