  1. I have a golf friend that is into golf more than anyone I've ever met. He plays in leagues, inner clubs, and then when he's not golfing he's studying his rounds, and inputting his rounds into a golf website. Then when he's not doing that he's watching golf. You get the point. I haven't spoken to him in about a year so i went onto GHIN to see his handicap. Last time i checked he was a 2. He is not registered in GHIN anymore. So i checked the Inner Club Tee Times and i saw he wasn't signed up. This is horrible, but my first instinct is that he was dead. THere is no way he wouldn't have a GHIN ca
  2. As most of you know, I am 73 years old. I have a huge place with a yard that covers 1/2 of a block. So, I mow in the morning, trim trees, work in the garden, and then try and quit by noon. Eat lunch and then take a nap. Usually head to the course and play at least 18 holes and sometimes 24 to 27 holes. My problem? I am so tired I have trouble controlling my driver. So, I get mis-hits, slices, pulls, and a bunch of other maladies. I have yet to shoot the low 80's this year. So, today, I am resting up and doing nothing to see if I can shoot a low eighty score
  3. After having been a single digit handicap for the last 7+ years, swing changes and frustration has me at a 9.7 with the next possible round getting me to a double digit handicap. In the grand scheme of things, Im still a better golfer than a large percentage of people who golf, but at the same time it’s very frustrating to me to shoot in the mid to high 80’s. I know I’m a better golfer than how I’m playing right now and it’s so aggravating. I joke when I tell my buddies I’m going to take two weeks off an quit, and I know changing my swing for the better is going to take a lot of work, but
  4. I am seriously considering quitting golf. I am by no means good at it (20 hcp) but lowered my handicap by 10+ this year. In 2008 i was hoping to lower it again to about a 15 but now im not so sure. i went to the range for the first time in 2008 and shanked about 90% of my shots. (at worst i have 2 shanks per 18 holes when i play.) i dont get it.... i slowed my swing down, took 3/4 swings, 1/2 swings, loosened up like 5 times, tried pitches but nothing. kept on shanking and could not hit the sweet spot. should i just stop?
  5. I started golf 6 months ago and now I am ready to quit. Golf is a good game and I love it. But I just could not get it. I had private lessons, I watched YouTub a lot, I even paid a program so I can practice drive range every day free. But I just could not get it. I understood what my instructor said, I know what I should do, but I just do not know hwo to do it. I hit from the top, I have chicken wings, and I can not release the club with hands cross-over. I top, I have fat shot and slice. I am going to see my third private instructor tomorrow and I do not have confidence in either him or me.
  6. Need something to do for a little me time every week. Golf is dead to me. Its been a long time coming but Im done. Its too hard, too costly, and it takes waaaaaaay to long. Golf isnt going to fix slow play and golf isnt going to get easier so Im out. But what the heck do I do now?
  7. I'm a fairly small 32 year old guy: 5'9 and 130lbs and pretty weak in the upper body. I've played golf for a couple of years and really enjoyed improving. I average 85ish. Anyway, my 7 iron distance is roughly 135 yards and driver is 200, at best (total distance, not carry). I'm starting to feel that without a faster swing, further improvement will be incredibly difficult. Here's my question: If you woke up tomorrow and found that you were stuck with 200 yard drives, forgetting about the sense of embarrassment on the course, would you continue to play? (I love the game, but my lack o
  8. Hi, I'm new here. A friend referred me. Anyway, I just started playing about 2 months ago and got a friends pair of handmedown Taylormade RBladez. I am taking lessons because my dad who them at a business raffle and had no intention on using them so I took them, and right away I noticed that I have really good distances with all my irons, but terrible consistency. My instructor says my swing is pretty good, but a little too inside and over the top so I've been working on fixing that. The last time I went to my instructor he made no swing changes just made me turn my feet out a little and my s
  9. I have never been more frustrated than I am right now! So, after four years and tens of thousands of dollars on my golf game I am now just another mid 90's player somehow! I was able to get my handicap down into the 9s last year! Granted, I was working on swing changes because of Evolvr which can derail a game some because of the change, but I felt like I was making decent progress! Fast forward to now and I come out at the beginning of this year and my brain and body feels like it's never played golf EVER! No feeling no distance control on my pitches/chips. I can hit long dr
  10. How do you handle those days where you literally can not get good contact. Thin.fat.slice.hook. Whatever it is, how do you cope with this kind of problem? Do you set the clubs down? I always after a round can not stop thinking about it. Need some advice, this drives me insane.
  11. Hello, of course I know that I have to answer this question even at the end, but I would like some feedback from you :) I wonder if I should sell all current and really stop my golf stuff first and only in about 10 years I once again deal with it, or if I go through with the thing and try to master :) Short info about me: 34 years old, started in the end of 2011, 2012 then few training sessions, range and
  12. Just started round and you make tripple boogy, double, tripple, boogy. You feel tired and not having any fun. Do you quit or finish round no matter how crappy you feel?
  13. Well, I'm 14 years old. I have played golf for 2 years. I am playing terrible. Today, I hit 36 over on an 18 hole executive course. A week ago I hit 45 over on a regular course 18 holes. I just joined a country club and all my friends hit like only a few over. I am feeling really discouraged and looking for some serious help from anyone. By the way, I can't afford too many clinics as my parents won't let me since its pricy. Thanks
  14. Ok lately slow play and bad etiquette has been making me angry and depressed at my once great golf club to the point I may not pay to be a member any more. People are so ignorant and arrogant, they never ring bells to let you know its safe to hit on blind shots even though they see us on the tee box. The worst thing is I can never practice by myself or play golf with my friend as a two ball. We/I always get stuck behind a 4 ball of old guys that never let us through. They hack and hack and time waste so much its unbelievable. Once I got so mad I shouted fore to get a group that skipped in
  15. I can’t do it. I just cannot hit this damn little white ball! I’ve been playing golf for almost 2 years and I have practiced a LOT. Golf has turned into a bit of an obsession with me and I go to the range probably once every 3 days. I have been getting lessons since day one from registered professionals, however the results have been very disappointing. My commitment cannot be faulted – if anything I probably try too hard. I really, really try to put into practice want I have been told however I’m not seeing any improvement. I can get the easy things right. My grip and setup are near per
  16. At 39, I still happy to break 100. Ok, no I'm not. But that's a good day. My courses are short, but challenging. Many hills, blind shots, changing conditions etc. Excuses aside. Backstory : at 22? I started golfing with my brother. Baseball bat grip. Finally started working with a left arm straight approach on backswing, and felt the club twisting in my hands during the backswing. Was able to consistently hit mid to upper 90s. About 4 or 5 years ago, I was sick of this. I took 2 lessons. First lesson I was hitting my 7 iron 165 yards straight. 2nd lesson, couldn't get it back. I
  17. Simply put, I'm not having fun anymore. Playing OR practicing! I used to have tons of fun when I first started 5 years ago. I developed some wacky homegrown swing that worked for me and kept me in the low 90s. That was acceptable and fun for me. Then, one day, I decided I would try to get better. (Big mistake?) Started taking lessons, reading tons of articles, watching instructional videos, researching different methods, etc etc. Turns out, I got WORSE! This summer was an absolute complete wash. I invested so much time and money last year into "getting better" that I felt if I did no
  18. I hate playing with someone who will just leave after a few holes if they r not shooting right at thier handicap! I can't belive how many people do this at my country club! It's so annoying I always make plans to play with 3 or 4 guys and I'm lucky to finish with 1. 
  19. I "was" a 10 HI, now I am frequenting +100 rounds. I still hit my driver, irons and wedges well. My problem is with distances. I just recently lost my eyesight in my right eye and am right eye dominant, so this has really screwed up my depth perception. So my short game is all to hell. Has anyone else experienced this issue, and what could I possibly do to find a feel for distance in the less than 50 yrd. game. Frustration has really put a damper on the fun I used to have. I don't want to quit golf, but I am almost ready to. Any input on the subject is appreciated.
  20. I just go outside to get mad at myself. I practice just to disappoint myself. For the past week, my game has completely gone away. I can't hit a shot straight, not can I even hit the ball sometimes. Lately all I do is either hit it fat, or top the hell out of it. And even if I end up hitting it, it's a complete shank, or a massive pull that just goes straight left. I haven't hit a good shot not ONCE in the past week. On Friday, I was doing absolutely incredible. I was at the top of my game, and I had been for a while, and I had a nice draw, that went nice and high, straight to the target.
  21. Last weekend I had 40 putts in my round. Yesterday I spent a solid hour at the course on the putting green really trying to work on it. I felt like I got down to a good repeatable stroke and a good routine. I was putting pretty decent when I left. Today I went played a new course... and.. had 40 putts. Again! The course does have some pretty fast greens that I wasn't used to, but it's no excuse. I had seven 3-putts. Absolutely pathetic...
  22. thats how i feel today. Sell my clubs and never play this damn game again. i had the WORST 18 holes of this season today, feels like a complete waste of money. I cant putt worth a shit, i threw my putter and it bent which i dont care because it was $20. Pounded my irons deep into the mud. I know im a complete ******* for doing this but it feels good to get it out. anyone want to buy some clubs?
