  1. Hitting low wedges with back spin is simple to learn in my opinion. Place the ball level with your back foot, hands will automatically be forward of the ball. When you take away take it away a tad steeper than normal this makes you come in slightly steeper than normal causing to squeeze the ball and creating some meaningful back spin. Also dont swing flat out, 70-80% is your max with wedge shots!
  2. Couple of drills he can do to stop him coming over the top from the top downwards! 1st is to use the headcover under the right arm drill, makes you stay in sink and makes sure yo bring down on plane! When you do this swing at an easier pace than normal! 2ndly you need to find a grass range for this drill really! If you have a shaft or something with no head you can stick in the ground! Stick it in the ground behind the ball by about 9 inches on the exact line your going to hit down! This way your body has to make the club come from the inside! Hope that helps man! :D
  3. Congrats on reaching your goal must feel great.
  4. You have got a real solid swing there man nice! Couple of things though, your club face is shut at the top, is it seems you slice the ball your trying to combat that! Secondly you take the club outside the line on the takeaway which is the start of coming over the top! Try feeling like your dragging the club around your body rather than straight up!
  5. Ok there are a few things that you need to work on! Firstly your down swing is very steep. When im getting abit steep on the ball i use the headcover under the right arm pit helps me shallow my swings abit! Secondly on your downswing your decelerating on the ball, this causes your fats more than anything else, this is probably down to you swinging to far round your body and then realising that you could air mail the green so you subconsciously slow down to stop this! And last but not least, your take away is outside the line, i know this is not good because i used to do the same thing, w
  6. Balls, tees, pitch mark repairer, ball marker, sharpie pen, pencils, 2 towels one for cleaning clubs one for if it gets wet, bag headcover, waterproofs, sweater, 3 pairs of gloves, and my food and drink for the day! I put my wallet and phone in my bag sometimes!
  7. I tend to put a blue dot above the name on a pro v1x and two red dots either side of the number and a line through the pro v1x line!
  8. Its great to see young kids play some good golf, but when your getting beaten playing for money and the kid is playing his socks off every round what can you do but stand back and admire!
  9. I wouldnt say he is a sandbagger! over the last 6 months he has lost 9 shots through competitions only! Came second in our club chamionship medal! Only beaten by his brother haha! Now he is off 9.9 now quite crazy! 11 shots in about 6 months!
  10. Evening all, It was my home clubs midweek stableford competition, i was paired with a 12 year old who plays off a 13 handicap. 1st green he has a 50ft putt for birdie and sinks it, from there on in he didnt miss a fairway a green and didnt make a double bogey all day! the course is best part of 6700 yards and this 12 year old only hits his drives best of 220 yds yet he manages to get the round the greens and gets up and down etc! After the front 9 holes he has 24 points!!!! He shot level par gross! Back 9 was more of the same really, fairway, green 2 putt. Coming down 18 he was only 2 over
  11. Its nice sometimes to play with some people who are a higher handicap because you then dont have to compare your shots to someone of your own calibre so you just relax and swing more freely which most of the time works out in your advantage! There are 8 of us every saturday morning, 3 of them are in the 20's and i enjoy playing with them, not because they are high handicappers but because they are sound people who are there to have fun but take things a little serious (play for money)
  12. Evening all, it was my home clubs club championship today, i was paired with a 6 and 18 handicapper! On the 2nd hole the 18 handicapper hit SIX tee shots right out of bounds. When he finally got a ball in play he went and found his 1st ball he played off the tee and then tried to persuade me that you take a drop to make it then in bounds!!!!!! I mean come on, ive played golf with 9 year old kids who know the rules better than this guy! Just to think what else has he got wrong in competition and then gone on to take money etc! That is all
