My Swing (bomberman)

44 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 1year 1month

My current handicap index or average score is: -

My typical ball flight is: Straight down

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull


Videos:

Yup I'm Asian

Things to note -

I never had a coach since i started.

Learned everything myself

Only 1 Year since i started

7 Iron 170 Yards

8 Iron 160 Yards

9 Iron 150 Yards

PW 140 Yards

(This is with range balls and range mats - No compression and wind)

Things to say.

I'm sorry if i have offended anyone by commenting in this forum earlier on. Just want to express my feelings and thoughts as a 19 years old who have not much financial support and accessibility i am proud to say that within my means i can play good golf within a year. All i ever did was practice hard and smart so for those who started 7 - 10 years ago you should unarguably be 5x better than me.

So therefore my thoughts were implying that golfers with 5-15 years of game time and exposure should be able to swing a conventional swing at least. Hence my sarcastic remarks that help is all around , on-line , friends, gadgets so no excuses if you REALLY want to improve on your game.

Lastly of course i will accept comment and remarks and insults or whatsoever on my swing. Lousy IPhone camera  (don't blame me) but this is the best even after editing and etc.

Peace.

I find it interesting that your syntax is very different in this thread.

Anyway, great swing in that video.

Weird. Doesn't look like Iceland. Looks like Singapore perhaps.

would like to see a DTL swing, especially considering all your comments on mike's thread about how horrible his positions are, and what you think a good one is like.

And you call yourself a golfer right?  Look at that shirt...  No one would ever believe you play golf wearing that shirt.  DO YOU EVEN OWN SOCKS?  I bet it stinks to have to ride in the same cart with you for even 9 let alone 18 holes.  Oh, and lose the red grip.  No one can play golf with a red grip.

All of the above sounds pretty ****ing stupid doesn't it?  Not any different than the gibberish you're spouting.  Tone it down a bit and the people around here would probably help you a lot.

Is it possible that the swing posted does not belong to the OP? That's about the only thing that would make sense out of all the childish posts.  Generally, as one sees improvement in their game, they should feel less need to belittle others, and might in fact try to offer help.  I haven't seen any of that here, which makes me wonder whether he just took a video of an accomplished golfer at the driving range.

my gosh another one appears.

Skype? Or face time? I'll do a live one for you :D  DTL? FO?

The reason i dare to make so much noise on other people's post because i know I've been through that phase and successfully overcame it and i know why and how because i am self learned and not listening to other people's advise/teaching

So instead of trying to belittle me how about just give your honest comments? Bad or good there's always room for improvement!

HA! All you've been doing is belittling everyone else! Sounds like pot calling the kettle black... except the kettle is white.

I don't think anyone wants to help you, because all you do is treat everyone here like an idiot... like assuming gwlee7's swing is worse than yours because he doesn't like the way you act like a child.

Nobody has any problem with your golf swing (except for losing a yard or two by falling back at the end of your driver swing). Everybody has a problem with your know it all attitude. I know some really good golfers with State Amateur Championsips, collegiate wins and All-Conference honors, Mini Tour wins, and Nationwide Tour top ten finishes. Not one of them chooses to belittle other golfers the way you do, and not one has a head the size of yours or is totally in love with themselves like you are.

Like a child? How about asking him to start acting like an adult then? If he had not given such a comment would i reply with such a inappropriate comment as well?

haha I'm sure gwlee7's actions are very commendable and appropriate yeah? So matured and responsible as an adult to make fun of a child (Me)

Another thread deserving of closure. There is no desire by the OP to receive anything constructive.

Yep, I call BS on only playing for a year as well, unless you are jobless and do nothing but swing a golf club and "teach yourself". Seems you are online a lot though for that.

You called BS who confirm? And what stakes are we looking at if i'm able to prove it?

And i'm online because it's +7 GMT here whereas ET over there hence the time difference.

You accused me of uploading a fake video. Then say i have no desire to receive anything constructive when clearly i stated that any comments/feedbacks would be good? Like i said just comment about it if not nevermind?

why the anger? did i even say anything?

Of course it's possible.  The OP isn't being 100% truthful about something...not sure what, but something.

That makes no f**king sense.  Successfully overcoming something is no compelling reason to deride others for being unable to overcome it.  There is a natural tendency of people who successfully overcome obstacles to be humbled by them and then appreciate the struggle.  It's the inherent douchebags who take the opposite approach.  Your rationale is poppycock.  You either never overcame said obstacles within the past year, or you are just being a douchebag because that's who you are.

    • I used to play all the time as a single (not as much anymore). I never had problems like the ones you describe. I've had the occasional group not let me play through, and an occasional three-ball who didn't invite me to play with them, but nothing like this. I've found more issues when I'm walking. People assume you are going to be slow, or hit into you because they don't see a cart...stuff like that.  
    • My advice is play w what you are comfortable w and what you like the most. I almost didn't get my ap2 irons last year because I was scared into thinking it was more of a better players club. I hit them fine and love the way they fee and look and might end up getting a set of muscle back titleists next year when they release new ones. 
    • I have had somewhat similar issues with league people a time or two. Basically I walked in to the club house, they gave me a tee time that was after their league started, let me know I wouldn't be able to start until around 5 pm. I was fine with that as I just used the time to hit the range first which was by the first tee. I even gave a good buffer after the group before me teed off to just try to give myself extra room before I would catch up by finishing out the bucket of balls I had purchased. As I was getting ready to go over to the tee box which was right next to the range I see two carts pull up and people teed off. I thought I had screwed up by waiting and that another group had come in and gotten the tee time after me. No big deal, my fault I'll deal with it. I let them play up to the green before teeing off, I hit a good drive down the middle, drive up to it and proceed to sit in my cart for probably 10 minutes waiting for them to putt out. Hit the green on the next shot and putt out. As I finish putting the flag in I see they are still not off the next tee which is a par 3. Rinse and repeat the extra long wait on that hole. Then the third hole. Somehow I was actually playing pretty well even with the waiting so I wasn't bothered too much. After finishing up on the third hole and driving over to the tee on the fourth one of the guys in the group turns and tells me "we're in a league so it's going to be slow buddy". I responded that it was fine, I didn't mind. But the problem wasn't that they were in a league, it was that they were just slow players. There was at least two complete holes in front of the one they were on that were open, unfortunately it would have done me no good to jump ahead because then I would have just gotten stuck behind the rest of the league anyway. The wait got so long behind these people that I literally laid down on a couple of the tees and took some mini-naps. Needless to say, eventually it screwed up my game and my score tanked. Good thing the scored didn't count for anything. That's a bit strange that they guy caught up to you but somehow you ended up having to wait on him after that.... I can tell you right now if you let me through I'll typically be off the green before you even get ready to play your extra shot and you end up waiting very little time overall compared to how much time I'll have to wait on your group.  I never ask to play through and sometimes I'll even refuse the offer, especially since my single rounds don't count for handicap anymore. As for your last comment, well I'll just have to disagree there because I have just as much right to be on the course as any group out there. Please see the following comment: So yeah, a single has just as much standing on the course as everyone else. Never the right thing to do, though I admit to having the idea cross my mind a time or two I never actually do it.
    • drmevo, do you mind if I ask where you live (just a general idea)?  I live in northern Minnesota, and play all over the state and in Wisconsin, quite often as a single.  I have had no issues I can remember about either being allowed to play through, or asked if I want to join if it is 3 or less in the group.  I do walk often, using a push cart, or sometimes carrying if I am only playing 9.
    • http://www.gamegolf.com/player/billchao/round/1080660 Could have scored better, but couldn't buy a putt. Burned the edges of more than a few, didn't really get the greenside shots to tap-in distance either which didn't help. Ended up with 39 putts and 0% scrambling. Funny, at the time of the round, I thought I was hitting it pretty poorly since I didn't put any pars on the board until the back. I struggled some off the tee but how bad could I have possibly been hitting it with 7 GIR? Just want to add that the greens were slow and didn't break much, which threw me off all day. Not sure if it is due to all the rain recently or the greens just are slow here, but my partners did mention this course typically has slower greens compared to the rest of the county. Not a fan.
