    I Need Urgent Help Guys

    Emergency fix... Don't take a full backswing. SLOW DOWN. Works for me.

    League Play: Pros and Cons?

    The ONLY time I play 9 holes in is league...after work. Almost never time after work for 18 holes.

    League Play: Pros and Cons?

    I've been playing in a league for about 10 years now. It's been pretty good. Most of the guys are decent enough. It "Guarantees" I'll get out on a regular basis. Always a chance for some prize money (our league is handicapped). Really no downside, IMO.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    My personal best yesterday (8/26). Shot an 87. 6250 yards. 11 FIR, only 4 GIR. Made some great up and downs to save par.

    What Has Happened to Golf?

    Walking, twilight rates, used clubs...plenty of ways to make golf cheaper than other hobbies. Agreed. I rarely pay full price for golf. I'm a cheapskate.

    Match Play Opponent "Too Nice" - Gamesmanship?

    Nothing really to do with "Gamesmanship", more about getting in my own head. This week in our league, I was matched up against my instructor. Thought about it all day long, leading up to the match. 1st hole, slice on into a pond. 2nd hole, tried to lay up on a hole with a creek out at 235 yards. Hit my H3 right into the creek. Farthest I've EVER hit that club...normally good for 210-220. I ALWAYS hit that club on that hole, and NEVER hit the creek. Goes on from there. Totally psyched myself out.

    Par 3 etiquette

    We waived a twosome on last Friday. I was playing in a foursome. The course was dead, so it made no sense to have this twosome behind us. Plus, they were better golfers than we were.

    Easier to hit a draw than a fade?

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    We play in a league. 5:15 Tee Time, shotgun start. There is another league that tees off at 4:00 to 4:30...NOT a shotgun start. The course always puts us on the same 9, due to a ladies lesson/league night on the other 9. For the last month, we've never got done before 7:45. Always waiting on every hole. We're considering moving to a different course. No way EVERY week should take 2.5 hours for 9 holes.

    Has this ever happened to you? What should I do?

    I'm 58 years old. Been playing since I was about 17. Took my 1st lessons about 5 years ago. The 1st two years were absolute Hell. trying to un-learn 30-some years of bad form. Finally now, the lesson have become fully ingrained for my shots. I'm not having to do a mental checklist for every shot. I'm not having to replace my golf glove every few weeks due to a worn out heel. I'm hitting the ball farther than I ever have. I still have some blowup holes...that's why my handicap isn't coming down as much as I'd like. Stick with it...you'll get there.
  11. I've been playing since 1975 (or so) and have never got a Hole in One. Had 4 or 5 within a foot, but never in. I never took a lesson until about 5 years ago. I wish I'd have done it YEARS ago. I'm playing the best golf of my life now, even though my handicap is still real high.

    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    Yakuri, I just took those numbers off the Grint...I didn't do the percentages myself. 4 Double Bogies, 1 Triple Bogie (with the 4 putts), 5 Pars, the rest Bogies. In the past, my short game kept me in rounds. This year, my driver is the best part of my game.

    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    Inconsistency. Shot a 90 this past Saturday. 16 putts on the front, 20 on the back, included a 3 putt and a 4 putt. Front 9 57% GIR, Back 9 86% GIR. I'd love to be able to putt together a good round of ALL 18 holes.

    Contacts vs Glasses= Better ball striking?

    I wear contact lenses when golfing & hunting, glasses most other times. Can't stand not being able to look out of the corner of my eyes when putting.
