  1. http://www.usga.org/championships/ge...kets.html#2008 That is the information. They do go on sale on Monday, so it is probably a good idea to buy them then.
  2. Shot a 153 at the local Muni.
  3. So I was watching the Open today and saw that commercial about the kid who shot the Ace but thought no one saw it. Anyway, I saw that and immediately called and got a Junior Membership (I'm 15). I've been wanting that hat and for 15 dollars all that is a steal. I was told that I would have to wait 6 months for some of the stuff I get. Is that true?
  4. 70 on 9 holes. I'm slowing dropping.
  5. I am surprised at how well Phil is hitting, but hopefully Adam Scott can pull ahead. Did anyone else see that almost Ace early in the day. Awesome.
  6. How much did you win?
  7. I am lucky to be the kid of members of a nice country club. I really like that I can go and hit as many balls as I want, and not have to worry about running out of money. Also, just the service exceeds anything I have ever received on a Muni or Public course.
  8. Played 9 - it got way too hot. I got a 60. Pretty good for me. I had a lot of nice drives but my putts were very poor. I started the back 9 but I got too tired and really just frustrated so I stopped at 14.
  9. Hey

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I am 15 years old and have been playing seriously for about a month. I have been taking lessons with our club's pro and hit about a 120, dropping every day.
  10. That's a really good point. When I practice I just hit ball after ball. But that's not how it is on the course. On the course I have to hit different distances and have to include other factors. Next time I go to the range to practice I will think about every shot and visualize a place on the course where that shot would be helpful.
  11. Ah. I have been doing that, however, I am very competitive, so I think in my mind about my score. I'll have to go out some evening when it isn't too busy and just play without even thinking about a score. Hopefully that will improve my game.
  12. I just started to get serious about golfing. I hit on the range a lot and can get into a good rhythm and really hit the ball well. It goes straight and it goes far. The problem is that I can never, for the life of me, duplicate any of those shots on the course. I fear the problem may be me being tense, trying to hard to get the ball where I want it to go; unlike the range, where I just hit and it goes where it goes. Advice?
  13. That reminds me of the time when I worked for our club's big money tournament as a ball spotter. When there wasn't anyone teeing off I would look up in the woods for balls and came home with about 100 pretty nice balls.
