I started this season at 14.3 . This was my first time back golfing since my high school days and I was probably a 14-15 back then too. I have been playing 4-5 times a week and I just turned in a score yesterday that put my trend to a 9.6 . Now the hard part is going to be keeping it there most of my scores the past week have been in the 11 range. I had a streak of two weeks were I was breaking 40 everytime out just about but im kind of in a rut right now where I shoot 40-42, no better or worse.

I started playing last July. I wish that I had taken up the game earlier in life .. I am 25 now. I live in CT so I was able to play for a few months before Winter.

...This season I have had an intense practice routine/lessons/played a lot and I am down to an 18.8. So I went from never swinging a club to a bogey player in roughly 7 months of playable weather.

I am happy with my progress so far.

I love this game and I am working very hard to be as competitive as I can be!

From age 15 to 18 I went from an 16 to 6

From age 18 to 21 I went from 6 to 5

From age 21 to 24 I went from 5 to 3

From age 24 to present I've been hovering around a 3

best advice is once you get down around 10 to 7 from there on down its all short game. I was trying to figure out how to hit it further and finally my college coach set me up with a local pro and it was all short game.

I was a 12 in January. Dropped to a 9 in March and then to a 7.4 in June. For me it is all about practicing and playing. I made a commitment to play and practice more and it has paid off. I drastically improved my putting (i used to be the king of three-putts) and I still have work to do there.

I like where I am at right now because I know going lower is going to be harder, but after every round there are still strokes that I gave away. I have things to work on and that is good. I would hate to get to a 4 and have nothing to work on - but I doubt that is ever the case.

My goal is to be under a 5 by years end and to be as close to 1 or under by end of 2010.

Yeh that was me at the start of last year (2008), but in about march i made a commitment to practice alot (2-4 times a week) & i would hit balls at the range 2 a week, do alot of putting and chipping (doing actual drills) & in about 4 months i went from 9ish to 5 and could play consistently. That was in about july/august last year and i have only dropped about 1.2 since then and recently made about .9 of that back, heap of bad rounds.

You probably got 3 or 4 strokes from your sponsor

too, hehe.
