Hi from Quebec

3 posts in this topic


I just realized I never did an introduction thread!

So I am 28, from Quebec City, Canada. I am a video game network programmer. I started playing golf about 7 years ago, but only started playing regularly last summer. Before it was only 2-3 rounds per year, and I played something like 25 rounds last summer. I also play left handed, the only one I know in everyone I play golf with, so everytime I miss a shot, you can be sure I hear someone say: you should try playing the other way around!

I am currently practicing at an indoor facility with simulators because it is totally impossible to play around here in winter. Courses should be playable in April (late March if we are really really lucky with the temperature). I am also taking some lessons this winter (still have a constant fade that switches into a slice every 4-5 shots) and I'd like to get rid of that.

Last year, I was playing around 110-115 at the beginning of summer, and at the end, my last 3 rounds were under 100 (98-94-96). I hope to play under 90 this year!

For my equipment, if anyone is interested

Driver: Taylormade RBZ

3 wood: Taylormade RBZ

5 wood: Taylormade RBZ

4 hybrid: Macgregor tourney

irons (5-6-7-8-9-P-G): Wilson Di11 (I also have a 4 iron, but I keep it out of bag for the hybrid, way easier to hit)

56 wedge and 60 wedge: Wilson

Putter: Nancy Lopez putter (I am built quite short and like to lean a lot over the ball when putting, so a smaller putter made for a women really fits for me)

So that is me. Feel free to ask anything, I don't bite!

OH NO the French Canadian!!! I kid I kid :-D

If you are going to invest in lessons, get a membership to Evolvr. Online video swing analysis. Cheaper than getting golf lessons in person, and will beat anything except a live instruction with a 5 key's instructor.

On that note, check out these threads,

*Specifically the ones on Posture, Five "S" to great practice, and 5SK Video thread.

*You can also post a video of your swing by creating your own My Swing thread.

Looks like you are not entirely new, but still Welcome!!!

    • Just my opinion, but All votes matter!
      Some people gave their lives to gain the right to vote!

      A blue vote in a red state is simply canceled out, but it still matters. It is still your right to vote. It is still how how our election process works, it is a part of our history as a democracy.

      I look at it like this. 9 birdies followed by 9 bogies brings you to even.
      But you still had 9 birdies!
      DO you not play golf because the bogies cancel out the birdies? YMMV!!!!
    • Nice.  Another convert.  Welcome to a life-long game. I was hooked the moment I walked onto a practice green at about 7 years old.  The smell, the velvety texture of the turf on the green ... intoxicating.  Even to a 7-year-old.
    • I'd rely on Erik on this subject. I have a torque balanced E-1 because I aim this mallet great, even with an unobtrusive sight dot. My problem is not aim. As discussed, there are weight limitations with the head - I think the head is 345g with the 9g weight, and 357 with the 21g weight. - you can quiet your hands/add weight with counterweights and the Big Dog grip that weights 120g. If I were to counsel someone, I'd say see which putter you aim best, and if the torque balance presents limitations as to weight or other custom features, and you aim another as well - go with the more customization classic line
    • Ha ha!!! Nope. My game has been in the toilet last couple of weeks after shooting my personal best of 83. Its been very difficult shooting an 83 and then not breaking 100 for four rounds in a row. But tst folks have been encouraging and let me know Im not alone. As far as participation badges go, thats not really my thing. Only two I care about at all are breaking 90, which I have, and an eagle, which will never happen cus I lack distance off the tee. Theres just too many cool folks on here to thank everyone individually so I thought many might see this post and that would suffice. I play the Frisco area. Usually play Plantation but occasionally play the trails and Stuart peninsula. And ever so often make the drive to the Bridges in Gunter. I do a lot of shift work so I usually play during the week vs the weekend. If your available during the week occasionally, pm me and maybe we can go chase golf balls. 
    • None of the reasons actually speak to regretting not staying. He was mugged… in the fall of his first year, and yet stayed that year and the next. He made $43M upon turning pro… which would have probably still been there (or increased) in 1997, 1998… And the worst one, that he planned to leave for a few months in asking for the sponsor exemptions… so what? I know plenty of people who planned for things that they ultimately regretted.
