  1. Hi everyone, I'd appreciate some advice, and I'll try to keep this short. So I'm 18 and I've been playing golf since I was 5 and really got into it when I was about 11/12. I have been playing in some low stakes tournaments for the past 6 years and I'm finishing up my last year and last season of golf for my high school right now. When I was younger I aspired to play collegiate level golf and to simply get really good. Being completely honest with myself, I have seen no improvement over the past 4 years (other than simply hitting the ball farther from growing taller) and I am pretty much stuck at a very inconsistent skill level of golf that results in scores everywhere from +18 to +5 for 18 holes. To give you all a better idea, I have put a lot of hours into this game and for many years tried very hard at improving my swing by studying the pros, filming my golf swing, and practicing on the range and course.(Yes I have given golf lessons a fair try) I am a student of the game, and I can feel that I can analyze any golf swing very well. Obviously, it is very frustrating to put in thousands upon thousands of hours into an endeavor expecting improvement, but getting none. I have come to a point where I don't really enjoy golf as much (not that it ever gave me a great deal of genuine joy anyways) and don't enjoy competitive golf at all. I know that I will not be playing collegiate level, and will probably not even have the time to play that much golf recreationally during college for the next 4 years. Now, I am looking to take up strength-training and piano to replace golf (endeavors that will actually result in progress if I simply put in the time). My only dilemma is: what do I do with this sport that I have invested so much into already, and have gained so much knowledge about? Do I quit golf entirely? Should I just resign to my fate as a shitty weekend-warrior golfer? Should I try to make some money through some coaching on the side? As you can imagine, I wish I had picked some other hobby back when I was younger. For a while, golf was a part of my identity. Now it is not, and I don't know what to do...
  2. Greetings, So the Wilson Triton has been getting a lot of press particularly from Golf Channel. What do you guys think? Is it hype or is it an actual good driver? Check it out here: http://amzn.to/2icWBON Thanks!
  3. Winter Depression Thread.... I'm in Arizona and this is the best time to play golf!
  4. To all my fellow Arizonians, What are your reactions to the whole plan with Karsten ASU golf course? Also what is your knowledge of the switch from Karsten to Papago? I for one am super upset about the whole thing because Karsten is the best golf course in Tempe. It has a really unique design and is one of the most hilly golf courses in Arizona. i am gonna be sad to ssee this one go, but I also love Papago. I just want to hear everyone's thoughts.
  5. Greetings all, So.....Rangefinder or GPS? Now that I am actually thinking about purchasing one, I'm kinda stuck. Check these tech specs out and tell me what you think http://amzn.to/2j3Bwou or http://amzn.to/2iUO989 Thanks!!
  6. Rank your favorite brands for DRIVER, WOODS, IRONS, WEDGES, PUTTER, BALL. And GOO!! I'll start it off: Driver: CALLAWAY Woods: CALLAWAY Irons: TITLEIST Wedges: TITLEIST Ball: TITLEIST ** Taylormade is a close second for driver and woods
  7. I would check out ALDILA light weight shafts! Also, if you want easy distance, consider some long drive heads like GRENADE.
  8. I haven't seen anything about him in over a year. Anyone know what happened to him?
  9. Greetings everyone, HELP NEEDED! I'm usually not one to purchase a complete set of clubs together, but I found this set of Callaways on amazon. Would you guys mind checkin them out and tell me if you think its a good deal. Keep in my I would be buying them for a 10 handicap. Thanks! http://amzn.to/2iqWBb9
  10. In all honesty, I wouldn't sweat wedge shafts to much. I just use the standard shafts and I hit them pretty well. The only shafts that matter are driver, woods, and irons
  11. @RayrobinsonYou definitely have a good motion. My only recommendations are to get your hands higher in the back swing, and get more lower body rotation in the through swing. Feel like you're hitting the golf ball with your body!
