Seeing as how I started last month, my 2018 goals are to get through Q-School, win my first PGA Tour Event, and last, but the not least, qualify for the 2019 Masters.
Now when I'm awake lol ... I would just like to consistently hit the ball straight. And if I'm able to do that well these next few months, I'd love to enter a tournament, just to get the experience under my belt. Competing in Tournaments (particularly National ones), with success, is my overall goal.
I won't speak ill of your instructor, but learning about the things you're doing wrong isn't necessarily productive. Ideally, you should leave each lesson with one, no more than two, specific things you're going to work on when you practice. You might have drills or slow movements to practice, but you shouldn't be loaded up with multiple changes all at once. Video can be a really useful tool, both to demonstrate what you're trying to change, and to take on your own to verify that you're actually making the desired change. I suggest you talk with your instructor to make sure you understand what your "homework" is at the end of each lesson.
And yes, I'm still working on my game. I got my first instruction in more than 20 years through my own Swing thread here, and a little more when @iacas visited my club for a TST outing and Aimpoint classes. A year later, I'm still working on the changes recommended, and making slow progress. Golf is hard, but its a lot of fun.
Haha, dully noted, my friend. And thank you for the warm welcome.
I often have to tell myself to calm down after I hit a " good " shot. Because generally the next one is a violent hook. I fear I may have to start showing up to the golf course in disguise until I get better lol.
Your challenge is to hit the ball first. If anything, a tight fairway will help you get the ball in the air and traveling the right distance.
And....... TOTALLY IGNORE THE ADVICE IN THE ABOVE POST. Do the opposite.
