New from Middle TN

7 posts in this topic

Fairly new to the game and really enjoying it so far. I grew up in FL and have clubs down there, went to the range but only played one round about 10 yearsago. My brother in law recently needed someone to play with, so I said if he had a spare set of clubs I would go play with him. Really glad I did, managed to shoot ok and even got 2 pars(we won't talk to much about the other holes). So 2 weeks go by and we play again and this time I can't hit the ball to save my life. Somehow this is how I became hooked. I refuse to go down like that and can't wait to put some time into this game and really enjoy it. Now I just need to get my clubs back from Fl or get a new set!

Currently living in the Smyrna, TN area and can't wait to get to know yall and learn as much as possible.

In case you ever decide you may want lessons there is a 5 Simple Keys instructor at the Stone River Country Club named Rob McGill.  He is a solid instructor and has very affordable pricing.

I have a brother in Cookeville. He and I are the only ones left as two of my other brothers passed away earlier this year. Gene used to golf, but he must be about 87 or 88 years by now. Two of his boys also live in the area, one has a "mountain pony" mini  ranch. I should probably go back there soon.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
