  1. Hello everyone. I'm a retired military vet of 22 years. Well retired in 2016. But of course there isn't a such thing as fully retiring from the military. So of course I'm back working. I have been golfing since I was about 15-16 years old when my dad taught me how to play. But I only golf about twice a year. But have decided to get out more. Have a generic brand of clubs I bought about 15 years ago but got fitted for a driver last weekend. Now trying to relearn how to play. So that's what I'm here for. To learn from everyone as much as I can.
  2. I currently have 13 clubs in my bag. Pretty basic set up I think. I am looking to add a club or 2 to fill some gaps, especially between my hybrid and 5 iron and maybe changing my wedges around a bit to get more consistent loft gaps between clubs. I have attached a pic of what's in my bag. My driver is at the top, it's kind of cut off but it's a cheap basic Tour Edge 10.5° regular flex graphite shaft.
  3. Hi everyone, Newbie here. I just started getting serious about improving my golf game and getting course ready. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the information out there and was hoping to get some insight and thoughts and answers to some basic questions that I have. I've been practicing on the driving range at least twice a week for the past month now and I'm taking my first one hour lesson with a pro today after work. I have also been watching countless hours of instructional videos on youtube which I feel have helped a good amount. The last few times at the range I have started hitting the ball pretty consistently and I'm feeling very optimistic. I really want to hit the golf course as soon as possible and start actually playing the game but I'm still feeling a bit uneasy about actually going out there for the first time. I don't feel that I have enough experience under my belt and am struggling to determine when is a good time to pull the trigger. Anyways, I posted a few of my questions to the poll which I hope can get some dialogue going. -Andres
  4. Hello All, I have been golfing for about 8 years now. i started to play when one day i came back from work and my girlfriend signed me up for a group lesson at a nearby golf course as a surprise. So at first i was hesitant to start a new sport. I have some background in football and baseball. I know it takes commitment and will to be good at a sport. I went to the group lesson and thats how i started playing golf. For about 2 years I have been playing with a group every Saturday morning at a golf course nearby my home, but since i have to work on Saturdays now i really dont have much time to play. Sundays are reserved already. I go to the range now to practice but someday planning to join my buds on Saturdays again. Im glad to join you all and look forward to learning and sharing with you all. Thank you
  5. Hi folks ..Live in Surrey in UK, newbie just starting at 63 yrs young . Got all the gear and no idea at the moment . Off to my local driving range for a few lessons on Sunday...Wish me luck !
  6. Hello everyone ! I am Steven from Vietnam. I am learning about golf, how to play and how to design golf course mini in home. I join this forum to receive some advise from everyone for newbie (Don't know more about golf before). Now i know a little about: What does a golf course include ? The golf course does not follow a certain standard but will be scheduled according to a set course consisting of 9 or 18 holes. Corresponding to each hole on the pitch, there will be a tee box or tee and an area with a hole called the putting green. In between the tee and the putting green, other terrain types will be available: Fairway, rough grass, sandbanks and other obstacles (water, rocks). , Grass dust, ...). These obstacles will be arranged according to the design of each type of yard and not follow a standard. How to play golf (just a little). Golf has two forms of play: stroke play and match play. In it, the play stroke play golf is the most popular. And i am learn more about this 2 forms of play. The questions i am finding out the answer is: Which form of play is easier for golfer. If anyone know, please give me some informations. Thanks very much.
  7. Hey! I'm excited to start participating. Golf foruming can get pretty fun with the right amount of Happy Gilmore references.
  8. So for some back story I had played a little golf here and there up until januaty 2016, it was my junior years golf season start and I wanted to be good. I was a 100s golfer in 2015 and these were my 2016 results thus far 101, 98, 95, 93, 93, 90, 87, 91, 85 each new score is one week later and new tournament. I have started practicing everyday and now work at a golf course and have improved vastly (partly thanks to my swing coach Mark Gray I highly recommend his website www.theprozone.net) as of today my handicap calculated from April 25th to may 22nd is - 7.4, today I played 9 holes and was only 2 over. I plan to keep practicing every day this summer and am playing on the STPGA Junior Tour and the Beltway Jr Golf Tour, I will update yall with each tournament. I hope to earn a spot on a college team, scholarship or not, and eventually move up to a bigger school. I want to either be a tour pro/pro am player or a PGA caddie. I hit about 50% greens in regulation and 80% fairways and these numbers are growing higher every time I play. I can make all 10ft> putts basically and many 15ft and some 20ft. I have basically dropped 20+ strokes in 5 months and am only getting more into golf daily. Any advice, tips, recommendations, etc. Are appreciated! PS I'm 17, going into my senior year, and live in the Austin Texas metropolitan (between Driftwood and westlake).
  9. Hello out there... New to the forum as of yesterday, when I got tired of looking at video of my horrible swing (which I finally decided to film after 8 years) and posted it in the "my swing" section of the forum looking for some advice on how to build a better swing from the ground up. Being obsessed with the game, particularly the awesome sight of a fundamentally sound swing, I'm now in search of some solid instruction that can put me on the tough road of changing some poor moves I've seemingly ingrained in my muscle memory (head on over to my post in the "my swing" section to see the ugliness of which I speak). No more quick fixes, now it's time to actually put the work in and one day hopefully reap the benefits of a repeatable golf swing. Really looking forward to contributing here on the forum and to have joined a community of like-minded individuals. And that's right, I'm in the Bronx! Teach high school earth science here in a very difficult neighborhood with tough kids, and I've flirted with the idea of starting a golf team. to help teach the values that many of my students seem to lack. Any other coaches out there who work in difficult urban settings? Would love to hear how you're doing..... Well, great to join an online community about all things golf! Walter
