Handicap Index

  1. Hi all, noob here. I've played a few times 7 years back then quit and decided to pick it up again. I can only play on my local course where the 'pro' is a 20 year old with a handicap you wouldn't call inpressive enough to taje advice seriously from for €90 an hour. Sooo I decided to take the free advice from anonimous internet users. And there we are. I've played for 2-3 weeks now and found myself to have a stable iron swing. I tee off mostly with my iron 3, about 170-180 meters. Hardly impressive, but 90% of the fairways are hit. It's that I have to 3-putt a lot that makes me score a lot of double bogeys. Onto the problem. The only way I seem to be pretty stable with the (longer) irons is when the ball is positioned a little bit in front of my back foot. Is this at all acceptable? I NEVER see somebody doing this, but it seems to work for mr pretty well. Go with what works? Or quit this while it still isnt in my system that much? Thanks in advance.
