I started playing golf a year ago with my son. When I started I was shooting about 85-88 shots per nine holes. Most of the time my goal was to get my tee shot past the women's tee box. I used my 4 iron for every shot after that except for putts. I actually once had a tee shot hit the rocks that designated the women's tees and fly into the air, go behind me, and land in the backyard of a house that is on a hill about 30 feet high.

Lately I have been hitting in the low 50's for 9. Yesterday I played and got a 51 (tied for my personal best) on the front 9 and a 52 on the back 9. My goal is to get to the mid to high 40's by the end of summer.

I can't wait until I can hit in the low 80's/high 70's.

The very beginnings of this game are the most fun IMO. To see such dramatic improvement early is what keeps you coming back! Enjoy the big jumps when they come, they get farther and farther apart as you progress in the game.

    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
    • I guess it's not extremely "unconventional" but I think many parts of the swing goes against some of the more "standard" teachings, or at least what I see on Youtube (forgive me I'm still relatively new to golf). Some of the differences of this upright/2-plane type of swing, according to the Jim Hardy 2-plane swing vs more "standard" golf teachings: Using more of the arms to generate power, rather than the body Having less depth at the top of the backswing Being slightly across-the-line at the top of the backswing Having a more open club face coming down Less body and hip openness at impact Of course not every "upright swinger/2-planer" adopts all of the above, but those are the things that Jim Hardy mentioned in his book and I'm trying to follow it as I don't have any other guide.
    • I don’t think a “2 Plane Swing” qualifies as “unconventional.” Please embed videos here: https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/
