Welcome to TST. I think you will get a lot of technical golf help as there are lots of knowledgeable people here. 6 hours round trip is quite a long haul for a 15 year old.

Try the first tee in Orlando. You might even be able to help teach some of the classes as you play with this group. The rates are very good, and they have a support system of instructors who donate their time.

I agree with Lihu - You will find a large population of helpful and knowledgable golfers on this website. I don't know much about the golfing community in Orlando, but I will offer you this advice - In future posts, try to use punctuation (most importantly, periods). It is very difficult to interpret an entire post written like that and you will likely get a lot more responses when writing in an understandable manner.

I take it you're not a fan of Herman Melville? :whistle:

Just finished "Typee", after starting it as a sophomore in high school a few decades ago. :tumble:

Where do you live in Orlando?  There are a TON of courses around here, many of which have junior membership options.

I live in lake Mary about 30 -40 minutes away from downtown

I live in Lake Mary.

Some ideas.....

Try Mayfair or Magnolia Plantation.  Neither is in very good shape, but should have junior memberships fairly inexpensive.  Wekiva and Eagle Dunes are two other courses, both in better shape than either Mayfair or Magnolia and are less than 20 minutes from Lake Mary with good practice facilities.  Dubsdread, down by Winter Park.....probably 15 minutes away, has an annual Junior membership for only $750.

Hey David...I'm a newbie(I believe this is my 3rd post). You live close to me...I'm in Winter Park area. If I was still a 7, I would ask you if I could join you sometimes to play 18(I'm a complete horse$hit hacker right now!)... I don't know many people in the Orlando area and would like to meet some guys to golf with. I had a long winded post on my intro thread, explaining I haven't really played since moving to Orlando area 3 years ago. I'm getting back to practicing though.

Haha - Well I would consider over-punctuation better than none at all. By no means are my grammar and punctuation always correct, but I try! Anyway, I am not familiar with that one, but it seems that it is not what you'd call a "light" read!

    • Thanks for posting that.  Now I know what you're trying to do.  The club is running parallel and you're using bisecting to describe that position. You're working on swing plane so I can tell you how to check for a good swing plane with confidence. Place the camera behind your hands and point it straight down the target line.  Draw a line with a swing app, I use V1 golf, from the hosel of the club and extend it to you're lower right elbow and stretch the line all the way up.  That's your elbow plane and the closer you can stay on that line coming down the better.  It may shallow below it during your transition which is fine, depending on your unique swing or above it if you are casting the club. So to be clear , hosel to right elbow and draw a nice straight line across those two spots from DTL. Can't tell but you may be trying to get under plane and getting too shallow.  That line is your guide to good swing plane.  Every swing is unique but that shaft needs to be getting near that line when the plane is coming down at some point. If you get dead on it when your hands are approaching your right hip, you're good.
    • I’m honestly really using my legs to start and feel like I’m squaring it up by turning my body around...kind of like I’m inside out...not in the golf sense but like I’m some kind of rubber ball with a cut in it being turned or squeezed inside out. It’s a hard feeling to explain. I think these are the correct motions. But the club isn’t behaving on video...yet. As for the hands, I really can’t feel either one during the swing I think they are working as a unit. And there might be a hit impulse but it honestly does feel like a swing. I can feel loading going back, I change direction with the hips that bumps them...at that time I feel like the club and everything is falling...and then I get that twisting inside out feeling I tried to describe. Now my hands are saving it at the end because they must. From everything I’ve heard good players talk about, I think these are correct feels. I’m either sending some forces wrong...or I don’t even know....but hey I can hit good shots lol. The goal is to get to scratch tho...all that and didn’t even mention that right leg in the downswing. But one mission at a time
    • Yes I’m trying. And ya, no kidding, it’s not like waving a wand. In my old/bad swing I got to this position with over the top and hit impulse and pulling the handle.
    • Day 46.  Another long day at work, another dozen balls in my indoor practice room when I got home.  Slowly hit, and I love the feeling.
    • Are you trying to bisect your lower forearm? ( not sure how that's even possible by coming down your elbow plane)  it should be your right bicep. Maybe I'm just not understanding you correctly.  In the model swing you did bisect your bicep ( upper half of the arm) and it was on plane. Now with a ball in the way I can tell you why it gets steeper.  You are trying to hit a ball and your right arm is firing to soon and wanting to take over for power but you don't need to do that. The right arm needs to stay passive until you post and release.  It will only steepen the shaft if you don't wait.  Your left arm needs to be the dominant player up until the last moment then you can use your right side to generate more speed by releasing the snot out of the golf club.  If you want to try something, hit some at a little slower speed and keep your right arm quiet and see if you have improvement. One drill would be to hit some easy ones with just your right finger tips touching the grip. The challenge is to break through with a ball in the way.  It takes time, stay patient with it.  But right arm dominance early in the swing causes the shaft to get steep.
