Hi from Canberra, Australia

Hi everyone

I've just returned to golf after a five year absence ... life got too busy and also being honest I had reached a level of frustration with my game because I could not find a way to improve. I had managed to get my handicap down to 19, but seemed to be stuck in the 19-21 bracket. Historically my short game was generally ok but my distance is terrible. I don't hit the ball long mainly due to what I think is a bad reverse pivot habit ... I never learned properly as a kid when I took the game up. I was all arms and its only recently I finally had some lessons and learned about weight transfer etc. Problem is now at age 42 overcoming the habit of a lifetime is really difficult!

So anyway I returned to golf about six weeks ago, again off 19 (my club reactivated my old handicap) and I've been a bit all over the place. Worst round is 108, best 94 so far but generally I am stuck at 101 or so.

My distance is still terrible but I am passable enough on my good days. I'm determined to improve my game starting with the short game ... while I have always been a passable putter since coming back I know I am wasting so many shots leaving pitches and chips short and I'm certain I could knock 5-8 shots a round off if I can find some short game consistency.

Anyway I am keen to talk golf with those more experienced and try to find the right way to overcome the flaws in my game and improve!

I was in a very similar position to you,..about a year ago! The golf bug grabbed hold of me again and I can't get enough! Good luck!

Welcome, and of course you guys are right in the middle of summer there...jealous already. Get a swing video up ASAP and you will get some help finding that distance you want.

Yes it has been quite pleasant so far ... fairly mild and great golf weather for the most part. Tempeatures will probably soar in the next few weeks though!

I have thought about swing video, I'll have to check out the best way to take one via iPhone, I will search around and see what the best method is.

Thanks for the welcome!
