Finding an instructor is the problem. I'm gun shy. The first guy, I worked with, let him make the changes, which were unconventional, and it destroyed me. The second guy wasn't as bad, but we didn't click. I'm not a "player". I don't use forged irons. When i make a good swing, it's very good, but I don't always make that swing. I'm not presenting myself as a low handicapper in high handicapper clothes. But, I am a legit 24, and I can, and do play lower on occasion. I'm an 18 hole a week golfer, 9 on Wed. 9 on Sunday. I know you can't buy a game, but I'm certain you can buy a better game. Before I bought the XR, a high percentage of my drives were right, in the trees, or OB. Now, it's not a common thing, but I still do it. The draw bias is huge for me. So with that in mind, I ask opinions about XR vs. newer drivers.
As further explanation, my league is 40 man, 10 4 man teams. C 0-4 handicap, 1 4-9 handicap, 2 9-12 handicap, 3 12 and up. I clock in as a 2 man. I go up and down during the season, as low as 9, and as high as 13. I finished as a 10. It's not uncommon for me to play better than the 1 men when I'm in their group. I'm an average golfer, and age does matter, I've seen my length shorten even while my technique has improved.
I bought new irons, I'm curious about drivers, and I've been working on the most important tool, my body. It's not easy at 62, but I have built up some strength, and I'm anxious to put that to good use.
But, wherever you go, I guess there are people that can do a detailed diagnosis with fragments of information. I'm not referring to you. So, that is my mindset, and situation.
Sort of in line with this, I was recently told about the potential for a home owner to have a right to their view at the time the property was purchased. At first, I thought that it was BS, but I guess view ordinances as they are called, exist. It is up to a city, though, to adopt one, mostly for homes that have views of a lake or ocean or similar. The course I'm at has a ton of land to cover, so to always try and trim the blackberries or alders back from around people's homes may never happen. The person who told me about it said he had heard about the right to a view in Seattle, which makes sense, but for us not really. In the OP's case, it's different, but if there were a view ordinance, it could effect the decision.
Posting scores where liberties are taken do nothing but hurt , or make a fool of, those that do it. Sandbaggers , posting higher than usual scores , or not posting low scores, ought to be taken out back and whipped and outed with their picture in the pro shop
