  1. Played the usual small course I play, now that the weather is nice..straightened my swing over winter...played both sides at +10..for a +20...not a bad outing for the 2nd time since last october...Chipping and putting isnt quite back where it should be yet..need a few more rounds to get my short game back to normal...I had no bad holes, really..just left some chips long and some putts short..that gets fixed with playing time..
  2. I agree 100% with you..I am living proof..:)
  3. Then I guess in your mind..after trying to get better, and not being able to do so, is pre-concieved ...if I had believed in beginning I'd never get better, I wouldnt have spent teh money or time...I did infact beleive if I had a good instructor I could at least learn to have a basic repeatable swing....unfortunately, it didnt work for me...but thanks for letting me know I am a lousy student, now I wont have to spend any more instruction money...I owe you one..
  4. I never believed it was easy...which is why I practiced each day..and took a lesson at least once a week when possible...you can believe what you like, because it works for you doesnt mean it works for all of us...if it did, we wouldnt be posting on the breaking 100 thread...
  5. Sorry I disagree with you totally...I listened and practiced many hours...it didnt work for me...Not evryone has ability to swing a golf club correctly...
  6. More likely it hurts thier pocketbook to be honest with a student that has no ability and wont improve...I have yet to see any Instructor turn away business by being honest ....its thier paycheck after all...
  7. same here, Dawg...I am 5 minutes away from that store...Guess I'll have to go to the PGA superstore if I resume playing again...They offer lessons as well...and have an indoor practice area...
  8. Joey, They have another in west Plano i think...they may have a sale and then move the rest to the others...Golf-tec notified me they would be moving...altho I am done with them ...f your close by, hollar at me...lletterm@gmail.com
  9. The store a few blocks away from me in Plano,Tx is closing Oct 16... I am glad a PGA superstore is a few blocks away also....
  10. Great Post Gus....I did 5.5 yrs in The AirForce, and feel very similar thoughts...I did time in Thailand and in Da Nang in the close of the Vietnam conflict...and I also Stand when its played..those that dont have that right...I also have the right to disagree with thier position...I put my life on the line for that right....
  11. Like your Friends and or Family , I left the game also for that exact reason....
  12. I cant agree with you more...and because of it I have quit and walked away from the game...2 years of lessons, and significant money later, and hundreds of hours practice, to no avail...same lousy swing, same inconsistant shots, same lousy score...
  13. If anyone is interested, a well known Instructor, Shawn Clements, will be doing a group clinic in Dallas and San Antonio in October...he ask me if I was interested, but I am not playing any longer, so i thought I'd let people in this thread know...for the People that can improve that are +30 golfers, he probably can help you...he is a good teacher....if this violates any rules for this forum, My apologies in advance...
  14. Glad something worked for you....and that you are better than before...Lessons, practice, whatever, nothing seems to overcome the lack of ability...I have come to the realization that people with zero ability to swing a club will never get any better...you will play +30 scores a different way...but it will still be +30...and it will still be no fun hitting lousy shots one after the other...I'll leave the rest of this year to those of you that enjoy the game...at this point I am fed up with it and consider the lessons and the time a waste..
  15. Well spent most of the day practicing swinging....No surprise I sucked worse than usual...I was at least consistant...as many right pulls as left....Bob Costas remark in his Feherty interview fits me perfectly I guess...I sucked before lessons, and now I suck a diff way after lessons...probably time to donate the clubs to 1st Tee...
