    Advice Needed

    Yeah, unless you plan to go to the range about 60 times or more seems a bit steep.
  2. Don't know if this link will work for you but some good basic information about set up with the driver. It's from golflink which is a really good site but the forum is not nearly as active as this one. They have excellent tips and videos. You may be asked to sign up to see it but it's free now. It used to be a pay site. http://www.golflink.com/tipsvideos/v...t=38234&e;=.swf

    Help with irons.....

    When my irons go funky I let my left arm/wrist be more dominant. I try to exaggerate it. For me kind of pushing the club through the hitting zone with the right arm gets me in trouble.

    Advice Needed

    The first instructor has already helped you so go with what you know. As for the memberships, do the one you know you are going to use and get your money's worth. If you have a lot of time on your hands and can play rounds freely to the golf course. But if you want to play multiple courses, have guys you play with that want to move the game around to different courses, do the driving range thing.

    not taking divots

    If taking a divot for you means more solid ball contact then it is probably true. One could argue that the angle of attack is steeper which will change your trajectory and may increase range. But I wouldn't take it as a given.

    See Ya Later Driver!

    I know how you feel. After a six month layoff my driver play is horrible. One tip I tried that helped was choking up on the club about 1.5 inches. Next is to correct all my setup problems. I forgot how different hitting a driver was to an iron. There is nothing more awful feeling than continously hitting the ball off the heel of the club.

    not taking divots

    It helps if you hit the ball first.

    not taking divots

    That is another way of thinking about it but one that does not work for me. I have come to the conclustion that am more of a feel player and can't think about too much mechanically just before I swing. I think about taking a divot and that causes me to make a descending blow on the ball.

    This is getting frustrating....

    Practice, practice. There are a lot of approaches to putting you just have to find the right feel. A reverse overlap grip may work for you. I like to make sure my right hand is in control. Some people like to go straight back and forward others like a slight arc to their stroke. Some golfers put a little forward press in their strokes. Do some experimentation, read some tips and try things out. Then again, don't let one bad day make you dismantle a good thing. Some days we just don't have it and just need one slight adjustment.

    not taking divots

    The only way to take serious divots it to pound the ball down into the ground. I try not to think about a method for taking a divot but rather let taking a divot direct my swing. But I know some people play really good golf taking minimal divots. If you try to start taking divots you will probably hit more than a few fat shots but eventually you should get better at it. But if as you say you hit the ball crisp then why bother?

    Need Help Keeping my body still

    When I keep my body still the ball usually stays on the tee or the ground in front of me.
  12. Well I have come off the longest golf layoff for me in about eight years. Didn't play for about six months. I wish I could give you something more to go on but I cannot get the ball in the air with the driver. The ball usually just dives down and rolls along the ground mostly to the left (right hander). It is not even a screaming worm burner. I don't make good enough contact for that. I didn't think I could miss that many times that bad even if I tried. No ball came close to hitting the center of the club. I was able to hit some decent iron shots. But no dice on the driver or even a three wood. Just baffling. Just to add, it is almost like I am smothering the ball. It is a pull more than a hook and just has no flight to it. Just an awful clank when I hit is so apparently way off the mark, probably off the heel but I don't know for sure. So I did a search on "Driver" and found a lot of discussion about my problem I think. I am pretty sure I am hitting off the heel so I have some things to try now. Should have done that in the first place.

    Official Tiger Car Crash/Infidelity Thread

    I am not completely sold on the sex addict thing but certainly if you could get all the snatch you wanted just about any time you wanted I could see where it could get habit forming. Having a hot wife has nothing to do with it. Being sexy and good in bed and fulfilling fantasies and making the guy seem like a super stud blows away having a hot wife who does none of those things. Not saying Ellen wasn't an adequate lover which I wouldn't know but looking hot is not the deciding factor in the long run. That being said, it would be a miracle for this marriage to survive at this point one would think. Tiger has created a large hill to have to climb. If it were me none of these sordid details would be part of the daily news. Poor girl has to endure a lot of embarassment.
