Hello Everyone
I work as an IT Analyst.

I am a newbie, just started trying to learn the game of golf in about 2 weeks now, i have been to the range and so far i have no clue to where to begin regarding clubs, i have been reading and reading a lot about different drivers golf clubs and how to get started, a few people have given me ideas, so far so good. Golf is in my head now 24/7. Looking towards learning some more, just purchased my first set a dunlop set, and looking towards upgrading in the near future regarding the drivers and clubs, terminology to me is bit of a stretch, but getting accustomed to the lingo by now.

    • I selected the following: First ball, regular par-70-ish course, on a par three Seems obvious Hole in one on a regular course where you don't play all 18 holes (or even nine holes) Unless you're just playing a hole over and over to try and make one Par three course, > 100 yards This IMO is no different than a Par 3 on a regular course. NOTE: I didn't vote for the "under 100" option-anything TOO short is too tricked up to me and can almost be like holing out on an approach shot. That's also why I didn't vote for Regulation course with a hole under 75 yards, not that I've ever seen one that short. Par three, regular course, < 100 yards  The reason why I voted differently on this as opposed to the Par 3 course is that I haven't seen any regulation courses with anything under maybe 90 anyway. Mulligans, Simulators and temporary greens should be self explanatory IMO.
    • Over the years I’ve spent SO much time working on going from steep to shallow in transition. It didn’t improve my Ballstriking much if it all. But I wasn’t particularly laid off at the top when I was focusing on this… I was just chasing a picture. I somehow thought being on plane wasn’t as good as going steep to shallow. I’ve come to see that swing models can be classified into planar and non-planar mechanics. Non-planar being the ones with the steep to shallow move (see Matthew Wolf or Victor Hovland). While planar swings tend to go up and down on roughly the same plane (see Tiger / Fleetwood / O’Grady).   Now I see that both planar and non-planar swings can produce great golf shots consistently. 
    • Thanks for the feedback, @Bucki1968. May I ask what you didn’t like at Atlantic Dunes? I’ve also read that a lot of people liked it better that Harbour Town; more specifically that HT in the off-season isn’t kept at championship condition and isn’t worth the extra money. I’d probably bite the bullet and play HT if this was the only trip to Hilton Head I was planning on doing in my life but I have this timeshare access for 37 more years 😃
    • For me it would have to be on a hole “designed and built” as a par 3, even on par three courses with holes less than 100yds.  Don’t see where a Mulligan really qualifies as a legit hole-in-one, likewise Simulators offer perfect conditions, so real weather is not in play.  Personally I have come close a couple of times of late - the ball finishing within a couple feet of the hole.  
    • Here we go. I should mention that I work with Erik on Evolvr so I get routine coaching and swing feedback there. I have no plans to stop that in 2023 so "get help from Erik" is an ongoing element of seeking feedback for each of these items. Track missed shots with narrative / details (intention vs outcome) Review these monthly and feed into my other drill and improvement work. Arccos gives me good dispersion data, but cannot incorporate what I was intending to do. Biggest gains here I expect will be off the tee. For example, aiming for right edge of fairway but I pull it left towards OB but still land in the left side of fairway. Looks good on paper but is far from what I intended. Realistically I don’t expect to track every shot this way, but enough each round to produce enough evidence on trends to monitor. Play in at least three individual stroke play tournaments in 2023 At least one of these being a Rochester District Golf Association tournament Stoke medal play will be a true benchmark of improvement over time. I view 2023 as a baseline setting year so have no specific outcome goals here other than participation. Improve driver speed (from TheStack baseline start speed of 99) Goal is 105 by August 1 2023 I'm turning 55 in December so perhaps 105 is aggressive and perhaps "maintain current speed" would be more realistic, but I'm gonna try. I’m not convinced that Stack gives enough specific guidance on how to improve (other than repeated testing and workout sessions), but I have access to Top Speed Golf which should help with technique training. Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts Current overall –1.7 putting, –1.8 on 0–10 foot Routine practice (9–11 foot challenge, Mickelson circle putting) at least twice per week on this range, with speed control work mixed in (ladder drill primarily). Consider taking either a refresher AimPoint class, or the AimPoint level II Goal is –1.4 putting (past 10 rounds vs scratch) measured around December 2023. Stretch goal is –1.0.
