    Tips for shallowing swing

    trying this last night is probably the only tip I’ve taken on board that has felt ‘natural’. Everything I’ve worked on during my lessons at the start felt very uncomfortable but I have to say this felt great. I’ve always watched videos / different types of swings and subconsciously always...

    Beware Golf Apps

    I sympathise with the thread starter completely. Although mine has been the kind of opposite way round. First thing I did after having lessons and buying my clubs was to download a ‘decent’ golf app. Since April I have been using V1 app which I paid £30 for the year and in all honesty it has...

    Tips for shallowing swing

    If you’re right handed do you bend your left arm in the backswing? I’m rarely that much above shoulder height with my backswing and my left arm never bends which seems to give me very good control. I can generate enough power to hit 300 yards like this but I’m left feeling that I have more to...

    Tips for shallowing swing

    Nice one. Watched a couple of videos and the big change I’ve made is to turn my hips first and let my hands/arms kind of drop in during the transition of my downswing. It’s worked really well for my irons as scored my best to date on the approach game on toptracer. My drives will take a little...

    Tips for shallowing swing

    Seems to apply to driver more than anything. A friend filmed my swing for the first time in months and I’m coming over the top quite noticeably on my driver during the transition of my downswing. Looks very amateurish. To try and control it I changed my backswing which is very short now which...

    Good course south of Birmingham on m40 route ?

    Stratford Oaks just off the M40 near to Stratford Upon Avon. A beautiful course and personal favourite. Just down the road you have The Warwickshire (has two courses Earls and Kings). Great set up here. And just round the corner from there you have Kenilworth Golf club. All courses on are on...

    Drive for Dough???

    I will often hit fairways pushing the 300 yd barrier. I will still double bogey + the holes. Short, approach and putting are far more important.

    Waterproof socks

    Recently purchased some Puma Ignites which are great but unfortunately not waterproof. Would be a waste if I couldn’t use them through the wet days. I’m looking at waterproof socks to get round this. Anyone use them? Please advise

    Golf is very similar to my first relationship.

    3 putts + : Gonorrhoea In the drink : Syphilis Heavy downpour mid round: Hepatitis A great shot followed by the ball disappearing into thin air and never to be found: HIV Someone picking up your ball: Full blown AIDS Shooting 20+ strokes over your best: This is that woman you thought loved...

    Golf is very similar to my first relationship.

    Last few rounds I’ve gone from hero to zero. Shot 83 a week ago to just being mid 90’s the last few rounds. It’s demoralising. Almost as if this honeymoon period has come to a sudden crash. The high I hit at the start of last week was on par with losing my virginity. I now feel as tho I can’t...

    Am I on to something?

    while we are on the subject can I just add I shot my best round yesterday. I played the whole round using only my 5 iron once (didn’t use 7 or 6) and that was in the rough / trees where I hit a low 100 yard bump and run type shot to get back on the fairway. Opted to use my 4 hybrid instead of...

    Am I on to something?

    Sounds reasonable 👍 I do this 100%. Subconsciously I think I do this because I want to get more distance and my 7, 6 and 5 irons generally travel the same distance so I’m always swinging faster the lower down I go. So from your extremely clued up experience do you think I have a point in...

    Am I on to something?

    I’ve read this thread back 3 times now and I have come to the conclusion that my brain cells cannot fully digest what people have been saying. I’d love to reply to each and every one of you but feel as tho I’d be here for a long time. I’m not being rude I am just a bit thick and I do not quite...

    Am I on to something?

    Ok, so I’m head scratching a bit. Had a few lessons at start then decided to invest in a set of Cobra RadSpeed One length weapons to get me going. My main reason for my thinking here. Consistency. Now the problem I’ve been having is my swing is basically the same every time (honestly) but the...

    Keeping your head screwed on during a round

    I suppose this will come under the psychological aspect of the game. 3 months ago I would have been chuffed with a double bogey but it’s now got to the point where a double bogey will sink me into deflation mode and if I get a couple of bad ones I feel like walking off the course. I haven’t...

    Golf after finger break

    It’s not the same thing but very similar. I had the Brabazon booked 4 weeks in advance and the day before dislocated my finger (left hand middle) playing football. Turned up for the round the next morning extremely hung over, took plenty of ibuprofen, shot my worst score to date but didn’t come...

    Golfing trips abroad

    People have talked about Turkey and Belek which I’ve had a look at. I can get a flight in January to Trabzon from London for £150 return and I’ve seen a few offers about that have confused me. Can someone explain the picture attached in this post as I don’t quite understand how a unlimited golf...

    Golfing trips abroad

    I stayed 5 mins away in Villamartin. Sounds like the area we stayed was excellent for golf. This is what has given me the bug. I’ll be sure to email the stray sod. Our Villa cost us £60 a night and could potentially sleep 6 so it could be the way forward. Maybe we won’t be getting value in an...
