    How to get a Lean Body?

    As regards the OP. To get lean you simply need to eat less than you are burning a day. Lifting weights will help get the look you probably want when you are lean, 140lbs lean on a man is well and good but just looks thin and scrawny imo. So a calorie controlled diet making sure to get adequate protein, 0.5g to 1g of protein per lb of body weight is sufficient. A 500 calorie deficit per day is enough to lose 1 pound per week which is a nice slow and steady weight loss. Lift some weightsifyou want a bit of muscle on that lean body, do some cardio (golf is the only cardio I do 😂) You’d be well on the way to a lean body doing this.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    For something that isn’t rocket science you sure are eliminating a lot of food that is perfectly fine in moderation and fine in a diet to get lean.
  3. I assume you mean a 450 yard par 4 is the toughest but yes you are right.
  4. That’s exactly what I was thinking, making holes longer would make more sense in that regard not that I would agree with it. A 700 yard par 5 would be fairly challenging lol

    Newbie rapid progress

    I broke 90 within a few months of taking up golf, I never considered that it was a rarity until i read this thread. Maybe i am better than I think I am. June 2017 i started properly. I had played 4 or 5 rounds in my life before that with other peoples clubs. My best is 83 but my local course is probably not as hard as others, I played a champioship standard course 2 weeks ago and it was definitely harder but not hugely. I'd love to break 80 now but cant see it happening this year as winter is coming. Everyone i play with is better than me, maybe one or two are worse and one of them is just after starting. Is it really uncommon to break 90?

    Distance with Irons

    I suppose its not exactly the distance that im worried about and moreso it being an indication of me striking the ball properly. Someone asked about clubhead speed with driver and in the one lesson i had he said it was averaging about 117mph. Driver is another issue and I dont hit it consistently at all to maximise that speed but thats another story. Looking at that chart the 8 iron is probably about right but certainly not always that distance or stfaight for that matter lol. I guess I'm more wondering if im striking the ball well, which would require a my swing thread. Ya the gap is fine 10 metres roughly either side of my 8 iron

    Anyone Just Accept Their Swing?

    As a relative beginner, only playing a little over a year. No absolutely not. I’m nowhere near where I want to be yet.
  9. Hey guys, just wondering how do you know you are getting the optimum distance yiu coukd with your irons. I'm convinced that I am not hitting as far as i should, i am not short by any means but i feel like i hit the ball higher than i should so maybe I'm not hitting down enough? Is a lesson the only way to know for sure? At the moment my 8 iron goes about 155 to 165yards on the course but at the range i can often hit a pw that distance. Should I just not worry about it so much?

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Had a personal best 83 yesterday. 12 over at my local club. I was delighted with that. 8 pars and two birdies. My driver is letting me down big time but my irons are going very well for the most part. If i can find the fairway with my driver I tend to have a good score.

    I asked for something to wear and someyhing to play with, my dad bought me a pair of trousers and cut a hole in the pocket😂 On a serious note, I for one am looking forward to this. I love both but maybe slightly rooting for Phil.

    How should a golfer exercise?

    Interesting topic. I lift weights and have done for years. I only started playing golf last year. I have no intention of stopping either as i like being strong and looking relatively big. One thing i noticed in golf is i am longer than anyone i play with, I don't know if that is genetic speed or a result of the gym. I suppose i am a similar build to Brooks Koepka or someone like that, I have only had one lesson but he said that I am way above average speed. I just hope after seeing this thread that i am not setting myself up for a bad back in the future

    Do You Hit Full Shots With High Lofted Wedges?

    I hit my gap wedge full alright but my highest lofted club is a 56° and i dont really like hitting it full. 3/4 swing at the most
