Hi! I'm really new at golf, about 10 weeks into it. I took a 7 week golf course going once a week, and now, I am hitting the ball consistently. The problem is, every club I pull, I hit about 175 yards. That's driver, 4 hybrid, and 7 iron. I did some research, and it seems to be something called casting. Do you think this is the case, and how should I go about fixing this?

Keep your left arm straight, and your right elbow tucked into your right side. That, along with keeping the elbows as close together as possible, will allow your hip turn to power your swing. It should also keep you from releasing the wrists early and coming over the top. Don't try and hit up on the ball either, if anything hit down on it with irons. If you can learn to hit a very low shot, it can help break the tendency to hit up.

Do you take a divot consistently?

It depends on how I feel, which determines if I divot consistently. If I'm playing angry golf at the range (quickly hitting the ball one after the other out of frustration), I'm pretty consistent. It's when I slow down to think that I lose any consistency at all. I will try to pay attention to my elbows to see if it will help.

    • My personal favorite! No in all honesty I feel the same way @iacas feels, they are purely functional until they are so gross that they must be tossed. Working at a golf course for all these years has ruined me from buying hats when I play different courses. I know how much those hats really cost wholesale, and I have a hard time paying $35-$40 for a $13 hat, I don't care if it does say Pinehurst no 2 on it.

    • According to Whoop anyways. I was surprised to see that as well. When I'm sitting or laying down, I'm around 45-60 bpm, so wouldn't be surprised if it got lower in sleep. Never really seen this data before, so still learning about my baseline.
    • Why does the outdoors thing "matter" a little bit? Four NHL teams exploring possibility of playing outdoor home games In an effort to try and get some fans back in the seats, four NHL teams are investigating the possibility of hosting their home games outdoors for the coming season. 1 p.m. Thursday: Elliotte Friedman reported on Thursday that at least four NHL teams are exploring the possibility of playing their home games outdoors if it will allow them to have fans in the building. The teams are the Ducks, Bruins, Kings ... and the Penguins. Friedman reported that the Penguins have looked into both Heinz Field and PNC Park. The Steelers schedule overlapping with the possible start of an NHL season would obviously be an issue. That's one of the reasons why. Us being golfers is another reason why I'm curious about any super-spreader events that occurred outside only (or even 85%+).
