Well, gents and ladies, I'm here. My name is Charles, I'm 21 years old and live in central Long Island.

I began golfing this spring, and I have a long way to go before I'm considered a good golfer, but I at least have a few upsides to my game. The handicap of 30 in my profile is a rough estimate, since I haven't played enough rounds to calculate one. I'm here because I don't have a lot of people with whom to talk golf, and none of my regular playing partners are in a position to give me advice, since they aren't any good either.

I'm not a hardcore golfer, nor can I spend much on the game, but I'm young and athletic, and have a lot of fun playing, and a lot of room to improve every part of my game. I look forward to being a part of the Sandtrap community.

Wherabouts in central Long Island? I used to live in Miller Place, which I guess is more eastern LI.

I live in Lake Grove, but there aren't too many courses really close. The closest ones to me are Holbrook Country Club and Heatherwood, and Bethpage and Spring Lake aren't too far.

Welcome fellow LI-er.

We've all been there. Enjoy making progress as it comes. The learning experience can be a great reward in itself.

Town of North Hempstead here, so who knows maybe Bethpage one of these days, if I can keep my neck vertebrae in playing condition.

    • 😜I foresee 27 shanks in your next three rounds. 
    • Day 13 - back to the indoor practice putting mat.  Mainly used the white line side (has the smaller hole cutout in the ramp section) to focus on keeping the ball going straight - worked from 3' - 6' distances in 1' increments.  Goal was to make 8 in a row at which time I could move to the next distance back.  IF, which was more the case, I left the line and missed the cup more than twice I had to move back to the next shorter distance.  Really forced the focus to be on making sure the backswing and follow-thru were equidistant from the starting point, keeping the head steady and having enough swing to sink the ball and not blow through.  Tough exercise but rewarding when I could "hear" the ball fall.  
    • They still accepted lottery applications for 2021, so would guess they would do the same for 2022 and just reject everyone that they don't have a ticket for.  I would assume some people that are rolled over to 2022 may not be able to attend and open up a few tickets.
    • Nice.   I agree with Erik, the bigger ones would give me some concern.
