  1. Ladies and gentleman, I, like many of you are suffering from not being able to golf in the snow at this time of year. What do you guys do to keep sharp during the 2-3 months that we aren't able to hit the course so we arn't backtracking on the progress we made this year. I've been putting on my hardwood floors and setting up chip shots in my living room. Started by landing the ball in the middle of the couch cushion. Then moved to chipping into the paper shredder bin (10 ish inches long and 6 ish inches wide.) then chipping over the ottoman into the shredder bin. What kind of things are you gents going?
  2. I would be more than happy to I just don't know how or where. I tried to upload it to the bottom of my last reply but apparently it's over 5MGB or whatever the limit is.
  3. Gentleman sorry for the 2 day absence after I posted, been out hunting every day since I can't golf with the weather here. As this was my first post ever on here I didn't think this was going to end up with 4 pages of comments in this time. I wasn't even sure I would get a response to be honest. Next to the people who actually gave reasonable advice thank you for pointing me in the right direction. And thank you for the benefit of the doubt. Yes it's really possible because I'm certainly doing it. To the rest of you I have no way to prove to you I started 6 months ago so I guess we're going to have to agree to disbelieve each other. I knew some people would not believe me when I posted it, because of how good I am but let me explain how I got to this point. I started playing golf by complete accident the end of May, up until that point I hated golf and wanted nothing to do with it. Ended up going out to the course the first time because my dads truck wouldn't start. While waiting for a tow truck he grabbed a couple buckets of balls and we waited on the driving range. after about 5-10 min of hitting a driver on the range I was putting them to the back fence of the driving range in the air almost every time. I figured I might actually be good at this and decided to try playing a round with him. My first round ever was like 95 or 96 and from there I got addicted to the game. From that point I started spending 3-6 hours per day on the course playing 27-36 holes per day (unless I was on a time crunch) and hitting 2 buckets of balls per day on the range. (To answer the question that's undoubtedly just popped into your head, no I don't live in my moms basement unemployed. I just happened to be very lucky to be able to retire at 24 years old.) I have never had a lesson from a pro. For the most part it's all been trial and error, or on the issues I've had, I turn to me and my golf tv on YouTube and after watching the video go back to the course the next day and fix said issue. I'm highly athletic, I grew up playing hockey and baseball, so it's not like this is the first sport I've ever played. I'm very well aware I'm not ready to be a pro and I'm not ready to compete on a pro level. However with my immediate (and from your responses, unbelievable success) on the golf course I would like to try and chase the dream of professional golf. One last thing gents as the last comment says he probably has thick skin that is completely correct. my skins thicker than Rosie O'donnels silverware drawer. i do thank you guys for your time and responses I never thought I would have gotten a response from so many of you.
  4. Ladies and gentlemen, I am new to both this site, and game of golf as I only picked up a club for the first time 6 and a half months ago. I believe I belong to a small group of gifted golfers, as I have a 4 handicap and am regularly just barely off of par on a par 72 course. (Yes I understand the claim I just made. No I am not a troll.) my goal is scratch or under by the 10 month mark, as it's currently below zero where I live which makes it difficult to get out and continue my progress. I am an extremely long ball hitter (at 6'5" 260 pounds and 24 years old) and regularly hit 300+ on my drives with a longest personal drive of about 340 yards, and start hitting my sand wedge at 150 yards. I believe I can make money playing golf in the near future (3-4 years hopefully), but how do I get to that point? My state doesn't have much for big amateur tournaments besides your average run of the mill club house scrambles and the like, and traveling to different states to play in amateur tourneys isn't much of a possibility right now. Any helpful tips or ideas are more than welcome. Thank you for your time.
