Name one thing that is holding you back in golf.

111 posts in this topic

length, short game, putting, concentration, desire, confidence, interest, fitness, time conflict, attitude, health, etc. what is that one thing that plays the biggest role holding you back in the game improvement?

for my older kid, i think it is putting, because at her level of play, the pressure to make putt is high.

for my younger kid, i think it is desire. may be she is still too young.

for me it is time conflict.

Not enough time spent practicing. Especially from 50 yards and in. I have to sneak onto my local course to get the ideal practice area. But can't do it in the fall or winter because of sunlight or on weekends other than in the spring and summer due to crowds and sunset.

Time is the issue for me. The golf season is the busy season also with my job, so I rarely get to play let along have time to practice.

My swing. Actually it's my putting. Short ones for the most part. And I could be a better iron player. Time is not a problem, I'm retired.

For me, it's definitely distance. My driver is 200 yards on a good drive. Occassionally get one up to 210 or 215.

Driver distance and accuracy. I would be happy with 240 yards consistantly. Just haven't found the groove...or the right club.

The things holding me back right now from getting down to scratch is getting those high scores off my card, and that's usually caused by my long irons going erratic. Plus, I can't really find a consistent pattern with my chipping anymore. It used to be the best part of my game, so I guess I need to go out and figure out a good form again.

Money, plain and simple.

I was once told that I couldn't get any better than I currently was at that time without more practice and playing time. Which is why I no longer care about 'how good I can get', and just enjoy the game for what it is.

Money would allow me to make the time, i.e., I wouldn't have to work.

Consistency which I attribute to a small number of flaws in my swing and inadequate practice. I'm going to attempt to fix both over the next year but am afraid that my scores will suffer a little bit in the short term. That will be a hard pill to swallow, mentally.

I vote money for me too. I would like to play more mini tour events, but can't without sponsorship. My family comes first... golf is way down the list of things that are worth risking food money fore.

My driving is good, and I do ok around and on the green, but my fairway shots have way too many fat shots or topped shots. I plan to spend more time on the practice range to work on these.

conisistency.

Some days i can strip my driver 270 down the middle with consistance, others its 230 all over the yard and anywhere in between.

I pure my irons all rounds some days, and others its fat and/or thin all day.

I can drop puts from all over the green or three putt everything.

I know i'm gonna shoot in the 90's, but i have know idea whats gonna prevent me from being in the 80 on any given round.
