  1. I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years on and off! My current handicap index or average score is: 28 UK My typical ball flight is: Sliced, low and short The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Just need some consistency and a bit more distance!!! Apologies for the lighting in the videos. Videos: [ ]
  2. Hello again all, so it’s been a few weeks since my posts and I’ve been out and about playing golf. Thought I’d see where I am again, as I hadn’t really played consistently for about 8 months! Played a round at a very tricky and long course just over a week ago and scored 107, with several pars... and therefore several duffed holes also!! I’ve also been to the driving range a few times since and have found the same old frustrations arising. The one day at the range I felt I was solving some issues and was striking the ball clean, with the distance improving... 3 days later and I can hardly hit the ball consistently again!!! I haven’t had any lessons yet.... after this week I’m thinking this is definitely the next step!!!
  3. Hello, my names Steve, its my first post on this forum and I’m seeking advice! I’ve been playing (trying to) golf for around 3 years now on and off and I have been a member of the local 9-hole course for this amount of time also. My problem is that I feel like I’ve never got better. Don’t get me wrong I probably don’t help the situation by falling in and out of love with the sport, as I have a good round and feel like I’ve cracked the code, to then play the next time and be the worst I’ve ever played!!! I’m not sure what to do to improve my ability however. A lot of people say “just go and play… everyday.. as much as you can, that’s the only way to get better”. It doesn’t feel right though. It feels like I have fundamental issues with my golf swing. Example, went to the driving range today, every club goes 100 yards! Whether it’s a 9 iron, 7 iron, 5 iron, rescue (sometimes 125y) and my 3 wood reaches 125 yards with what I consider a clean hit!! And I don’t even pick the driver out of the bag anymore! When I first started and also for the years afterwards I had loads of lessons with the course pro, and to be fair to him minor things did improve and he got my grip sorted etc, however a lot got worse also. I felt I was paying a lot of money for 30 mins to have 20 mins of nicey nicey chat and 7 mins of lesson talk… the other 3 minutes were where he would regularly be late!! So I’ve avoided these for the past year!! So I guess my question is, has anyone else found themselves in a similar position when starting out, and how did you figure out what was going wrong and start hitting the proper distances? I appreciate that there is no magic pill and it wont change overnight, but any help to get back on the right track would be awesome!
