  1. It depends on a number of factors in my opinion! I will break it down on how my thought process would go if faced with this (no particular order of steps, just have to consider all) 1. Can I hit it 265? ( front of green) 2. Is this my first hole of the day or 10th? I would probably GO FOR IT starting out on #1, where if it is #10, score would come into play more for me. 3. Am I playing this hole one time? or is it a tournament where I have to play it multiple times? Odds are you will score better laying up 4 times with a 4-5 iron rather than using driver to g
  2. Big year coming up. Lots of events to play I have set goals for what I want to shoot and what I want play for tournaments. I am tentatively playing: 5 Club level (defending 2) 3 Provincial level 1 National Level (based on performance at provincial) 1 Pro Qualifier 1 Team Provincial Level (ryder cup format) Also throughout the year I am going play some courses for training that are approx 73 - 75+ rating, 135-147 slopes Any questions?
  3. Basically did it once last season.. Played battle golf with a friend so i hit driver off #1 but the rest of the round with irons. Played off 6750 yards shot 80.

    Thanks david, I wasnt so much looking for peoples opinions on what i want to do, more 'how to' and specifically things that will help me continue to get better. The purpose of this wasn't for me to come here and look for validation of my idea. I realize that at some point I will have to go pro( move locations, quit my job etc) if i ever want to see how good I can be, I just want to keep improving and do things now, so that if and when i make the decision to go pro i will be that much more prepared.

    The canadian tour is a terrible place to start out and attempt to be a pro golfer for myself anyway... Its like 9 events spread over 4 month, across the entire country.

    Great posts everyone! I came to an online forum to get peoples opinions, I am aware of many mini-tours etc but its nice to get actual peoples opinions on the matter. I have shot -6 in regular rounds, many -3s in competition. I obviously know I need to improve my game to be competitive in the pro ranks, thats no secret to me. As far as money and coming down south, i feel i have enough money saved up to attempt this(start it maybe) but would need a plan of attack to move forward.
  13. Courses from the tips make you actually think your way around rather than blasting driver anywhere and going for every shot. Prob couldn't get to par 5s in 2, which makes it harder and longer par 3s like you mentioned make it more difficult also

    Typically courses would be rated 73-75 for a tournament, at +1 i would typically shoot 72-74...so to be able to compete I estimate +3 would have to be your handicap minimum.

    Touring pro, I appreciate and acknowledge the odds are against me but whatever bro! I don't buy into other peoples expectations, especially on this one because its completely up to me in the end.
  16. You would be hitting wedges/short irons in as opposed to mid or long irons... Whichby definition is more difficult.

    I wonder this myself a lot, I believe it is not as black and white as you may like to think. I would say no in a yes no situation, but I am so far ahead of most golfers that I feel like I can improve a lot with the right training.

    Looking for advice on how to become a pro. ie. financials, what is the route to take that will give me the highest chance of succeeding long term, what specific things to practice to get better, what are goals or benchmarks I need to hit along the way, etc (dont feel limited by my list) basically I don't feel like attempting to win my club championship/local tourneys for the next 20-30 years (maybe exaggerating)... I want more

    Hi there, I am a +1.0 and all I want is to wake up everyday and do something I love (golf). I am amateur now, and I am going to work as hard as humanly possible this season. I need my chance to make it to that next level, Im not exactly sure what that opportunity will be. I would appreciate some feedback, advice, comments or will answer any questions you may have. thanks
  20. -6 on two different courses ... 65- par 71, 66-par 72 both featured 6 birdies and 12 pars, my only two bogey free rounds to date
  21. I have some tourney goals already set, based on course rating and my handicap goals. I also need to devote more practice time to short game.
  22. I played in 11 tourneys last season, club, provincial and national level 2 were team format, 9 were individual stroke play won the 2 team ones, won 1 individual, 4 top 10 amd MC at nationals
  23. I have birdies every hole at my course... Eagleing every hole could take like 40+ years and still not get it... I have gone 18 holes without bogey (2times) I have gone 3 rounds underpar in a row maybe try to beat those ?!
  24. Made 7 - shot 68 (par 72) 71.2/124, 6352 yards
  25. I need some goals for 2013. I am a +1.0 currently and want to continue to get better. Some suggestions on some goals I should work to achieve are welcomed, thanks.
