Share Your Name, Folks!

One of the nice things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

One of the bad things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

I recently asked several of our Forum Leaders and Supporters to take the small step of adding at least their first name to their signatures.

I'd like to ask everyone else to do that as well (if you're not sure when you get a signature, read: ). Just add your first name to your signature. It likely won't really identify you to anyone, but it will let people know that there's a real person named Steve or Tony or Ivan or Ulas on the other end of the discussion. It'll let people address you by your name rather than "golfer12683" or whatever you've chosen as your username. It'll bring a bit of humanity to the discussion.

So, please consider adding your first name to your signature, and thank you.

I like this. I always prefer addressing people by their names instead of their usernames. I already made it easy for everybody else...

Done, I think I've signed ~Tom B. on many of my posts already anyway.

My 3 sisters & 2 Bros. in laws still call me Thomas, which is fine,

But "Tommy" is like Nails on a Chalkboard to me.

It seems I have many names but my real name is Mike.

My Boy Scouts call me Mr Mike, not sure why it has been this way for the past 11 years. Never liked being call by my last name!

My son calls me Daddy O

My wife has many names for me, but I am sure you all can figure that one out. :censored:

hello everyone , I'm John and i just registered so the thing with the signature might last a little while. I'm a newbie here as you can see and also on the tee, got recently pulled in by my brother in law, now i'm not sure if its because of the thrill of playing golf or to get away from my sister LOL, long story short its cool to be here where i can read many many useful threads and learn every day about golf and hopefully that will improve my game. and thank you all in advance for having the patience with me as a beginner :D

Hello everyone, my name is Bill. I spend my summers at Mable Lake in British Columbia golfing & boating. I also golf around Calgary, Phoenix & Palm Springs.

The sandtrap is where I need to go to find rules I’m unfamiliar with.

    • If lessons from an instructor were not available, I might suggest a visit to the local library, or internect connection, and read up on the basics of the swing. Address position, grip, and a one piece take away to the top of the swing. I wouldn't worry about anything else, untill I had a working understanding of those three items.  Once I understood the above items, I would move on the more finer points of the golf swing, a little at the time.  Too many times I think golfers over load themselves with swing mechanics, with out fully understanding these mechanics, and how they relate to each other. Frustration sets in, and they don't improve, or worse yet they quit. 
    • Sometimes, it takes a guy a couple of years to find his game again after winning one or more majors. After a major win, I've heard they go on so many paid exhibitions and travel so much doing so that it wears them out, and can affect their swing. But Jordan's worked on his swing over the last year; and it could be he needs another set of eyes, or a consultant to assist his instructor.
    • You are not yet 40, so yes you can definitely get more distance. But, it will come down to a couple physical factors: flexibility, muscle control, muscle speed, and coordination.  It sounds like you have some coordination and control, you just have to learn how to properly let the club head go and know how to create ideal launch conditions.  A pro can certainly help.   You don't have to be fred couples or john daly to hit the ball long.  At 8 months, you most likely don't fully trust the swing yet.  Once, you start trusting yourself more, you'll be able to let it go more and get some distance.
    • 2017 D&D Invitational Pretty tight leaderboard with some big names, going out in threesomes due to weather threats.  Should make for some good watching. Simpson has been trending this year of late.  He's back on with his putting after several changes since the anchoring ban.  I'm rooting for him. I also like the D&D shops.  Ridiculously high dollar, but some good eats.
    • It's tough to answer without knowing your physical abilities, but my guess is that you will gain some distance since you've only been at it 8 months. In reading your post, you seem to be a student of the game. What I like is that you are not bothered by this right now - except as a gauge for improvement. In my opinion (I'm not very experienced) and as you stated, trying to keep up with others can be very detrimental. Be patient, and keep learning and developing your mechanics. Distance will come.
