Hey guys, fairly new golfer here. I started back in November with a lesson which basically taught me grip, stance, and how to use a pitching wedge. I haven't had a second lesson.
I try to hit the range once a week to work on pitching and chipping and try to get in a round once a week. At least on an executive course. On straight par 3's 9 hole my best score is a 40. Where i live we have a nice medium sized 9 hole course with par 4's that when played twice I have gotten a 109. I am not perfect but I still have shots that feel good and that I enjoy.
My problem is larger courses. There are some here where I live (Nashville) that I play that embarrass me. I also was on vacation in Florida and got on course I had no business being on and shot 70 on 9 holes! I did the same on a large course in Indiana.
My question is, how do you mentally handle a large course? And what is my problem? Further more, should I work on driving or keep practicing chipping and putting?
