Hello all. I've been reading this forum for a few months and decided to join up. I've been a golfer all my life. However, I am a prime example of not achieving past your goals. My goal all through High School was to play college golf. So I worked hard and I was an All State golfer in Utah my junior and senior years and made it to play at Trinity University in San Antonio in 2003. I got the bag with my name on it and thought I had "made it" in a much lighter sense of the word. Long story short, I never got used to the pressure over every shot and struggled for 4 years just to stay on the team. Now, 2 years out of college I am working to get my game back to where it was. So count me in on having lots of questions and being a "student of the game" once again.

Highlights of my golf career:

1. Played Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and Spanish Bay with my Dad on a golf trip.
2. Shot 70 twice (have never broke into the 60s)
3. 2 hole in 1's (hence the user name)

Thanks, Rick! what is travel golf league?

Little John Golf League   website is www.littlejohngolfleague.com

Schedule for events is on the website.  We play pretty much every other Sunday morning at a different golf course in the Greater Houston Area.  All play is stroke play and we payout 3 best net scores.  We have 2 flights split by handicap index so we pay out 6 places net.  We also payout closest to the pin on all par3s, most birdies front 9, most birdies back 9.  We offer an optional combined gross/net skins game.  Handicaps range from a +3 to 36.

Greetings! During the 1990s, I went to school at University of North Texas, at the other end of the state above Dallas.

Congrats on making it through four years of college as a golfer. I teach in a University business schoo, and I see what a time-consuming sport college golf can be - especially with springtime road trips to tournament.

Good luck on your game as a "big kid!"

    • This course has 2 of those dog legs that suit me. I managed to get close to the green on both but this one was much better because you have trees that start about 30m from the tee box and you need to go over them. Smashed driver and didn’t hear a noise. There is no way to cut it off any further to the right only if you can hit it longer. Pitched to pin high and two putted for par though. 
    • 7 hours ago If Rahm holds on for the win, will he be the first Basque major winner?   No, Olazabal is from Hondarribia right across the water from France ,Rahm from nearby Bilbao .Seve was also from the north coast not sure if it’s classed as Basque .
    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
