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!

    • Found this link looking at Tiger and his new swing. Michael Jordan makes some very good points about why the term "GOAT" doesn't make sense. Smart guy.
    • I think we were.  Yes, this is a GREAT feature, long overdue Some people even make Snaps (snapchat) while driving.   
    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
