    Guys, thanks for the input! To reply to th me drive question, I can get it out there to 200 when I do it perfect, which is rare. A lot of mistakes and I average out to 150

    Big courses

    I do drive some and my 6 iron is usually a mess. My pitching wedge is money (not necessarily ON the money but I tend to hit it well and get a nice sound/feel) and gives me good feelings. My 7 is good. I can sometimes hit my 5,6 and ok. My problem with the large course is 1) intimidation and 2) thinking I got to slam the hell out of a 5 iron or long iron that I don't have a lot of confidence in. The ball usually will go about 4 yards when that happens. I guess what I am saying is i lose rhythm and sense of self on the big courses! How do I keep that same rhythm as I progress into my longer clubs? As far as driving, I feel like I am having a hard time keeping a good balance on the back swing. And then I start thinking about every internet video and article I have ever seen/read, and the wheels come off. The wheels literally come off on the larger courses.

    Big courses

    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? Thanks,
