  1. The X-factor is not what creates torque and power in a golf swing.
  2. On new courses hit the shot that you know you can hit, generally meaning playing safer golf by avoiding the big mistakes. I personally tend to overall play very well on new courses except i tend to make a lot of big numbers and ruins my score. Another thing I like to do on new courses is not spend much time practicing putting or short game as I have had way too many experiences where the greens on the course are completely different from the practice green and it completely throws me off the whole round.
  3. 10 as everyone should be a happy camper golfing.
  4. I actually agree with you i did not take into consideration that he may be gripping it too tightly,which may be the case as he stated before that he does have big hands.
  5. True but one of the more successful ways to fix a slice is to get them to hook the ball then bring them back to straight.
  6. Take 3 practice swings while looking at the hole your eyes will tell you how hard to swing then set up to the ball and putt. I Learned this from a PGA Master Professional.
  7. Best piece of advice I have ever received is to take and bucket of balls and slice every single one of them. In your case it would be the opposite take a bucket of balls and hook every single one of them.
  8. Since you are a beginner I would strongly suggest that you do not use a 60* wedge as it pretty hard to hit properly. If I were you I would get the 52 56 and bend the 52 into a 51. I have many friends who are single digit handicaps and do not use more than a 56 and do not feel the need for more loft as they can hit all the shots they need to with the 56.
  9. I consider myself to be a long hitter driving distance of about 280 and I dont always play the back tees at golf courses especially new ones. When a golf course is 7,000 yards it is more than likely going to challenge the golfer on more than how far you can hit the ball. I do not see why people feel the need to always play the back tees because at the end of the day is "what did you shoot?" not what tees did you play?" When someone asks what did you shoot many peoples answers are I shot 110 but I played the tips. If you move forward a set of tees or not and someone asks what did you shoot and you say 88 their response will be wow thats awesome! To conclude nobody cares what tees you play from the final number on the scorecard is all that matters. PS. when I was a junior golfer I would play the whites and outdrive any adult in my group by 50 yards when there was only a 20 yard difference in the tees. How do you think that made them feel?
  10. From what I can see in the video your clubface appears to be dead shut at the top and then you come over the top and actually squaring the clubface, however the clubface is open in relation to your swing plane resulting in the pull slice I'm assuming you hit.
  11. Bigger grips will make your slice worse because they limit hand action making it harder to turn over the club my guess is that it is a swing flaw. Also what do you consider a neutral grip? How many knuckles can you see on your top hand?
  12. Um find a different teacher if you are a 6 handicap which clearly means you are a talented player he should of been able to fix your slice or at least tone it down to a fade. Did this teacher look at your grip? because I would be willing to bet that it is too weak leading to compounding effects throughout the swing.
  13. Honestly start playing from around 6,000 yards as I find it hard to believe that you are not slowing anyone down when you are hitting 3 full shots into the green. Also, if you are serious about getting better play the ladies tees every once and a while, may seem weird but this is a very common technique used by lots of good players as hit forces you to hit shots and also used to help people who are "afraid to go low". The reason this works is because your brain gets used to the idea of writing low numbers down consistently.
  14. I am currently a PGM student at Clemson, and I have my qualifying test on thursday. I was hoping anyone here has any advice about the test. The teachers have been making sure that we really know the material. However, im still concerned about it as it as a very low pass rate. thanks guys
  15. My bad got got mixed up on which one was which. I know the rules on for the different stakes just made a mistake on which one was which.
