  1. my problem is im married, 2 kids, job, etc so its hard for me to be selfish and go "play" golf all the time. lol i picked up this game about 5 years ago when I was 27, so I have had a late start, then considering I dont get to play/practice near as much as Id like, im not really where I want to be. Id say I probably play about 12-15 rounds a year and hit the range about the same amount, if that... probably less. I do not think that comes out to a 70s golfer... But I would like to be a low/mid 80s golfer and think that is within reason. I have a decent swing and overall am pretty
  2. anyone ever done this? if so, how did it work for you? did you improve at all? if so, by how much? Im thinking of starting this week as my guy's golf trip is in exactly 6 weeks from this weekend... im currently about an 18-20 handicap, so im not sure it would get me into the 70s, but if it could maybe drop 4-5 strokes in 6 weeks, Id be happy to shoot in the high 80s everytime out. http://www.golf.com/instruction/how-break-80-your-six-week-plan-lifetime-low-scores
  3. I have been golfing for a few years now (think about 5) and although I do not get to play as much as Id like, I do take it very serious and love the game. I guess you could say Im borderline obsessed. That being said, my son is just now starting to show a little interest in the game. There is a nice course by me that also has a little 3 hole practice course. Its kept in perfect shape, but is perfect to take my son out on because there arent a million people playing it pressuring us to speed up. To date, he has probably only gone to the driving range 2-3 times and played maybe 1 round
  4. this past weekend I signed up for the official USGA handicap with my home course. He told me that after I play a round I can tell them and they can enter it in the computer or I can go home and do it on ghin.com anyway, here is my problem. I accidentally entered in too many rounds. I entered in each round twice. I cannot find a way to delete the extra rounds. Any ideas?
  5. Its always fun to buy a new club. I bought a Taylor Made R9 5 Wood... I rarely ever hit my hybrids because I dont like them much, so I really only have a Driver and next is 6 iron... So I had a huge gap. I hit this club like a champ at a Taylor Made Demo day at my home course last week... Im excited!! Cant wait to try it and close it a degree and see what it does...
  6. Iv never really looked at myself as ever becoming a scratch golfer. I just picked up the game about 3 years ago when I was 26 years old. Really wished I would have started alot earlier. But Im pretty happy with where I have come. When I first picked up the game, I was shooting 115-120 and now im high 80s, low 90s. My ultimate goal has always been to shoot low 80s consistently and occasionally flirt with 70s. Most of my golfin buddies are around a 10-13 handicap. But this past weekend my buddy brought out another one of his friends he works with that Iv never met. This guy came out all cocky
  7. plus u always play your best when nobody is around :) good job man, thats an awesome round
  8. maybe i should just get another iron like a 4 or 5 so it will be a little longer than my 6 and get a 5 wood... sounds like more reasonable thing to do
  9. Thanks for the faith guys, but I have no interest in learning to hit these particular clubs. I hate them and cant stand even looking at them anymore. Im really thinking about a 909H type of club.
  10. My Adams A3 irons have hybrids as the 3,4,5. I simply cannot hit these clubs to save my life. Iv read and heard other people with Adams hybrids say they are an iron hybrid and meant to be hit like an iron, not like a wood. However, I guess its a mental thing, but I simply cannot take a divot and hit them like this. I try and sweep them and its not working out for me. So.... to fix this issue, I simply just dont use them. Because I dont have any fairway woods, I have a huge gap in my clubs from Driver to 6 iron. I want to fill in this gap with a single club for now. Im looking at a diff
  11. However, with all this being said.... I do want to find 1 club between my 6 iron and Driver that I can confidently hit and know I can hit it good. I dont like my Adams A3 hybrids at all. They stand too upright and just hate the way they feel... so im going to go look/hit some other hybrids like a 909H and some 5 woods....
  12. Yes, I did play the same course both times. It was a buddies birthday and we played all day. Well there are a few holes where you dont really want to hit driver. Because I dont hit my hybrids very well, Im really in a bad spot here. I feel that a 6 iron isnt really "enough" but a driver is a bad decision. Im just not THAT accurate with it. This one par 5 hurt me both times. Big water on the left, huge trees OB on the right. Both times my buddy basically yelled at me to use 6 iron and I didnt listen... first time in the trees, second time in the water... If I woulda just done that, hit a 6 i
  13. thought I would give a little update. I played 36 holes yesterday and tried to put this theory into place. Round 1. I shot a 96, but I had 7 penalties. This is probably about as many penalties as I have ever had in one single round before. Ultimately, this is what killed my score (duh). But basically, I played like I said I would. I didnt get aggressive and try to go for the green when I felt I had a very small chance of getting there. However, I did find myself in a bit of a rock and hard spot when I was in my hybrid range. I have a Driver, then 3,4,5 hybrids and then my irons start at 6.
  14. How did you guys play Augusta??? My best played is the Colonial in Ft. Worth, Texas
  15. as a follow up.... I dont plan to purposely lay up on every single hole just because I have an extra stroke... Obviously, when possible Ill still be going for it when possible. I just think this will mentally allow me to not force shots when I dont feel confident I can pull it off. Most all my buddies are single digit handicaps and alot better than me.... So I see them pull off shots and try and do the same thing, even when I dont feel that I can pull it off...... But on a short par 4, after a drive and Im only 100 out, im not going to hit a half wedge shot 50 yards... lol
