    Rolling Balls Yield More Aces

    I didn't know when stating an "opinion backed up with facts" you could use words like probably and unlikely. No fans around? He's on The European Tours Twitter acct.

    US Kid's Golf - New 5 year old questions...

    You don't need anything. Sign up and go play. 6 and under play from about 25 yards. I haven't measured it but that's what it looks like when we get up to the green we see their tee markers.

    Rolling Balls Yield More Aces

    My 11 year old daughter this year in August got a H.I.O. 135 yards with a 3-wood with about 20' of roll.
  6. I've read several of Bob Rotellas books, "Zen Golf", "The Inner Game of Golf", and a 3-4 other books on the mental game of golf. A common theme in all those books as it relates to this thread is to definitely CARE about the result of your shot but never WORRY about it.
  7. I play with a closed stance and just out of curiosity googled "closed golf stance" and this thread popped up. The title is exactly what happened to me when I was introduced to a closed stance. An effortless inside swing. I could not no matter what I tried start inside to out. I was ott and steep. As soon as I closed my stance my swing shallowed out and stayed inside. Gained big yardage too. Almost eliminated fat shots instantly without any other swing changes. I was always hanging around the 19-20 handicap range and after adopting this change I got down as low as a 12 and have not been higher than a 15 since. (14 now). I also scored a lifetime low round of 75.
  8. Yeah ok until someone on here will say no keep working on the long game because that's where you will shave strokes.
  9. I'll bite also. My son and daughter play USKIDS tournaments and I see all the time where 1-2 kids out of their age group will drive it 20-40 yards further than the rest of the kids and still get the same score as the top 4-5 because the other kids are 1-2 putting. Also I play in a money game every now and then and I will drive the ball 20-30 yards past these old timers and they still beat me or tie. I'm on in regulation and 2-3 putt they get on in 3 and 1-2 putt.

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

    See now in the previous posts a bunch of you were saying 4 hour rounds are "slow" now you're saying 5-6 hours is slow. I would have never said a word if we were talking about 5-6 hour rounds. That's slow. I have problem when someone says 4 hrs. is slow. Oh and thanks for my picture 🤝

    With that logic someone could say that 2 1/2 hrs. is slow then.

    Is it anything like the neurosis of all you guys that think if it takes more than 4 hrs. its slow play? I don't get what the big freaking hurry is. Really 4hrs. slow? Just go do something else then and save the bitching for the 4 1/2 plus hour rounds. Anything below that if your not enjoying yourself quit the game.

    Your Game, Without Continued Practice

    I never "practice" at the range. I love to play golf hate to practice. Sometimes I will play 72-90 hole a week so that to me is my practice. Real life situations. With that said I've gotten down to as low as a 12 and bouncing around as high as a 15. By the way seems like my handicap never stays the same very long. It wont go higher than 15 but always moving up or down 1/2 or 1 point. Sometimes will go down 2X in a row then back up. Almost everybody else I play with in money games or tournaments at the club they've had the same handicap for ten years. I just figured it was because I wont commit to regular practice but one guy told me if you play a lot it makes a difference too.

    How to become successful in golf at 17

    Inbee Park didn't start till she came to the usa when she was 12. Ricky Barnes said golf didn't find him until highschool. He played basketball, baseball, and football also.
