Here's a great tip for you. Don't be such douche. Most people don't want to help someone who acts like a douche (i.e: you).

hey brah...u mad brah? this is just a thread for me to get help when i need it, so if u dont like it then leave i dont care what u do.

hey 804, have you ever seen the SNL skit "The Worlds Biggest Douche Bag Awards"? they gave the Biggest Douchebag award to the guy that calls everybody "brah"....

no brah i havent seen it

i'm amazed on the length of this thread. i really don't care. i'm bored at work and noticed on how many people think the same thing i am. i was surprised that this thread was still at the top even after this weekend... maybe its time for you to go bother the people on golfwrx.com.

But i think its about time for the admin to lock this one down....

Ok, in all seriousness I will answer your original question. Yes you have potential, but until you start going out and working at it every single day then you are wasting away that potential.

I can't believe I just read almost this entire thread. What a waste.

To 804. I not only think you have potential, I think you could probably make a decent living within the next couple of months. My advice, drop out of school and pursue golf full time. I think you could reasonably expect to be making upwards of 250K by the year 2010.

Judging by your contact on the vid and your extreme distance (170yd 9 iron - DAYUM!) you should be able to leapfrog basically the majority of amateur golfers on the planet.

I wouldn't worry about the fact that you can't seem to figure out how to calculate an index because when you make it big you can pay for somebody to do that for you.

Good luck, Brah


@Moderators. If this were my forum I would close this thread and ban this kid. There is no possible way he can be serious.

I think you could POSSIBLY find your way onto a small pro circuit in several years if you practice for at least 2-3 hours every day. And referring to a point someone else brought up, the courses the pro's play are HARD. Im a mid-single digit handicapper, and last year I played a junior tournament at TPC Wakefield PLantation in Raleigh, NC the week after the Nationwide Tour played there. I played pretty good but shot 88. Crazy tough. The course was 6,970 yards from where we played it, which is over 600 yards longer than my home course from the back tee's. But the length wasn't the problem, it's the green complexes. I had like 40 putts that day. The break and speed of those greens are so great that you can't even practice putts that difficult on your home course greens. But with hard, productive practice every day, you may be able to do it. And don't feel dumb for trying, because I'm wanting to do the exact same thing with my life

yes, brah i feel ya. I am trying to get out on most days and play or practice something but its hard with school being in session, but when the summer rolls around, I hope to get out everyday and practice or play, and hopefully i can get a couple of lessons just to give me a few things to work on. good luck brah.

How do you correct the shot thats kinda of a low hook??? anybody know?

This is the reason why we ask you to post a video where we are actually able to see you swing. There could be so many different things that are wrong with your swing, that it's not really productive (in my opinion) to give out general information. I know you say that you don't have a digital camera, but if you go to school, they should have one available for loan.

    • No one started out being a "scratch" golfer...……  Be the kind of person you would want to play along with...... I prefer to play with people that are better than me - I find that tends to make me play better.
    • I’d love to see a picture of the MacGregor chipper, if you get a chance. The argument against chippers seems to have a couple of main themes. First, “It’s a single purpose club that takes up one of the 14 slots allowed by the Rules.” True, but we carry two other single purpose clubs and I don’t see a movement to start putting with a driver, even thought the lofts are similar. The other, “Real golfers don’t carry chippers!”, seems to imply some kind of group consensus of what a club set is supposed to consist of; but I gave up trying to run with the pack in my 50’s. 😊
    • No guesses as to whether it'll survive, but I would think whether it does or not, streaming is going to be more prevalent. Despite the problems with Peacock and the USO, maybe they're going to broadcast some tournaments via Peacock? I don't see the COVID situation changing drastically anytime soon and with the uptick in people golfing, you'd figure there would be a chance to capitalize on that but that's not happening AFAIK.
    • Okay, figured out the culprit was using too much epoxy. Watched some YouTube videos on club assembly and realized I was overdoing the amount of epoxy in the clubhead and applied to the shaft. Assembled some irons last night and used an appropriate amount of epoxy, and the hairline of black epoxy isn't there. Now, I just hope I didn't use too little epoxy...
