Hi everyone! I'm Marta from Spain.

12 posts in this topic

Hello, I´m Marta from Madrid, Spain. Sorry if my english is not the best, I need to practice more!

I´m getting married in May and we are going to spend our honeymoon vacations in USA. We are passionate about golf so we really want to play golf at the best golf courses in the US. We are going to visit  New York, San Francisco, Pebble Beach(of course :-D ), Hawaii, Las Vegas and a little stop in Pinehurst to watch the US OPEN!

Can someone recomend us which golf courses we should play?

Thank you very much!

Hi Greg!

Thankyou very much for the congratulations! :-)

About the motorcycle road racing I don´t follow it anymore, but I used to like it a lot a few years back! I´m curious... why you ask?

Hi John!

Courses in Spain.. where to start... there are many courses in Spain!

The most famous is Valderrama in The Costa del Sol, but there are many great courses all over the country.

There are great golf courses in the North of Spain, for example, "Real Club de Golf de la Coruña", "Pedreña", and many others.. there are also great golf courses in Madrid like, "Club de golf Villa de Madrid" and in Barcelona (Catalonia), like "Real Club de golf El Prat".

But also in the South, In la Rioja (winery regions).. and the islands! "Canary Islands" and " Balearic Islands", specially in Palma de Mallorca.

Well, maybe is too much information!. If you tell me which part of Spain you would like to visit, I will recomend you the best golf courses in the area.

I ask because I know road racing is big in Spain. Plus one of my favorite racers is Jorge Lorenzo in MotoGP.

Hi! Yes!, We plan to play there, at Bethpage Black, but I saw that is kind of difficult to reserve a tee time in advance if you are non-NYS resident... still we hope to find a way to play there.. :)

    • 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.
