My official handicap was 8 when I got the job 11 years ago I have recently started playing again, haven’t went for my handicap but I’m my 15 rounds since I have been back an 81 and 82 lowest I have shot. Few silly holes ruining my card. Ironically caddying is the worst thing for golf is caddying I don’t get too play in summer months normally but because of covid I’m playing again. Your right too get too too you need a certain level but no excuse for bad manners.
Well, I'm officially in the wilderness with my swing at this point. I think I got so into my head trying to shorten the backswing -- which I have never been able to, no matter how much I focus on it -- that it has messed with everything else. I'm basically at the point where I'm struggling to hit 2/5 shots on the range well, and that (as the video shows) isn't due to getting used to a shortened swing. I'm just totally uncomfortable standing over the ball, so every swing feels really awkward and there is no carry over from swing to swing. Ball flights can be pulls/pushes, thin/fat, and draws/fades, just zero consistency.
(DTL video isn't the best angle, but my phone crapped out during some filming and I didn't realize until I got home)
I thought one has to demonstrate a certain level of handicap to play the Old Course???....is it also a requirement for the other courses at St. Andrews too?
I know it's one man's opinion....I never would have not guessed Lawrie to be arrogant....in a way not surprised at The Mechanic.
But, let's face it....quite a few people who excel in their career are some what arrogant....they know they are good.
Thank you guys. I have probably seen the very best an very worst of golfers an people on the links. Best I have seen his is 66 with every hi fairway and every green Hit by some English pro and worst I have seen is German 50 handicapper who took 22 shots on first but didn’t go in burn lol which was more amazing. Met a lot of the pros. Rory McIlroy, Ernie Els and Brandon stone nicest pros I have met with Paul lawrie (even though he’s Scottish too) very arrogant and Jimenez (up himself too)
