    How to shallow the downswing for a serial steep player

    Would appreciate some help from people who have managed to do it. I watch videos of myself and can't believe how steep I swing on the downswing. It starts to explain why my shots get worse the less loft is on a club, and why I have so much trouble off the tee. I have recently been down to 11...

    My first 1 on 1 knockout matchplay of the season is Saturday I am thinking I am going to say on the first tee, making it clear, I wont be giving gimmees and expect it all to be holed out. I dont want to get into the whole psychology of when to give putts and when not to. I feel it favours...

    Hitting 6/7/8 Pitch swings for 40 to 130yards

    Has anyone else experimented with not hitting wedges in the 130 yard and in region, and instead just hitting a small pitch motion to carry the ball on the green and let it roll to the hole? I have been doing it for a few weeks now and it has transformed that area of my game. From 80 yards out...

    How long does your club take to post competition results

    My old club would publish to howdidido competition results on the same day as they finished. If ever not it would always be at 7am the next morning. Now it seems at my new club you could wait several days to a week... I left on Saturday after holding the club house lead and must admit I have...

    No Spare Lockers

    I am moving cities in the next month and have been looking for a new course. Found a course I liked, it has recently dropped its joining fee, held membership prices for another year and it reviews well. Ticks a lot of boxes for me and would be a 10 minute cycle which is perfect as I share a...

    Using different ball for different holes. ie par 3 and par 5

    If you want to shoot this down straight away, click back before wasting time with a reply. Has anyone experimented using different balls for different holes? Like maybe a shorter par 3 using a ball they feel gives them more control on the green, to hold it easier. Then on a long par 5 going...

    Which player currently on Tour will have the most majors by 40

    I personally believe Rory will get to double digits and will have the most Read a lot, especially on here and WRX, that he is done and will never win another. Thomas is good, streaky player when gets hot is really hot. Spieth is closest contender to Rory, such a good all round game, his...

    Spieth 50 Yard Low Check Spinner - Do you play it?

    Does anyone play this shot when they are say 50 yards in from the green? Been watch Spieth play this shot so well, today at East Lake he has got up and down constantly with this shot and it looks awesome. I would usually hit a half lob or sand wedge up high but find it hard to get within say...

    Soft skills to lower your playing handicap

    Was pondering some of the softer skills in golf that can really help scoring, only the legal parts of course. Being able to know and remember the area where a wayward shot had landed is massive. There are certain people I really like being drawn to play with as in the past they have found...

    Do you enjoy playing in strong winds?

    I usually don't mind playing in any weather, heavy rain is annoying but if it starts mid round once you are wet you might as well carry on. But the wind has been consistently strong every day now for what seems a month...my course is particularly affected by the wind being right next to the...

    How many holes on your course have tight out of bounds?

    My course has tight out of bounds on the right side of every single par 4 and par 5. To the point of you can't hit a shot 10 yards to the right of the tee box or your ball is dead on almost all of them. Now when I watch something like a vlog on youtube, or even some pga events. If they have...

    Why are you the handicap you are?

    Why are you the handicap you are and what has stopped you from getting lower? I see a lot of people at my club who have stayed the same handicap for years, fluctuating up and down a few shots over time but not trending downwards. As a new golfer, I am wondering what is preventing golfers with...

    Comments/Accusations about other people's handicaps

    Recently started taking golf a bit more serious after beginning to play golf last year. My game has improved and been working on different parts with lessons every few weeks. I have had some pretty harsh accusations, not formal but just pretty bad comments about the handicap I am. Has anyone...
