  1. I've made more of an effort this year to get better and play a lot more as my son is old enough now to play with me (he's 7 and has been 'playing' for 3 years now). We started playing 18 holes last year and he's actually progressing very well (which I started when I was 4 rather than 30, LOL). We even when to the drive putt and chip competition last month which he loved. I guess the thing that is a bit frustrating for me is all the conflicting information out there. Example..one teaching method for chipping is hinge and hold, and another is stiff wrists.. and then middle of stance.. back in stance.. neutral hand position others say hands forward. I mean it would be nice if there was some consistency to techniques but for many things there is zero consistency in teaching.
  2. Ive been playing off and on for about 17 years. I still shoot between 110 and 130, LOL. I've gotten a little better but still struggle a lot. I can make good contact with the ball but directional control is often a issue along with thin and fat shots. Generally I lose about 8 to 10 balls a round which adds 20 strokes to my score (hence the higher scores). it's a definitely a struggle for us not gifted people, LOL. I have shot a couple scores in the 90's but that's about it. I still love playing though and have been watching a lot of youtube videos in the hopes of improving. I would love to get lessons but the cost is far out of my reach.
