Just a new member checking in from Arizona. As the topic alludes to, I share a name with one of the young up and comers on the tour. It certainly gets me some great reactions, but I honestly wish I could have half of his game.
As for me, I am playing off of a 25.8 handicap. I have lost over 130 pounds this year which has drastically affected my swing. I am starting to feel like I am making better contact and that my scores will start to come down in the near future. I am always open to suggestions, especially on how to groove the proper inside-out swing.
I can't get enough golf! Glad to part of the community.
I didn't get into golf until later in life. (I wish I had started as a toddler ). I have spent approx 80% of the last three summers at the range grinding it out with lessons, deliberate & focused practice etc.and not really seeing the results.
This summer I decided to flip the script and have spent ~80% of my time playing, and only hitting the range sporadically. I try and play a local par 3 course weekly, as well play 9 holes x2 weekly at a traditional course. My short game has improved dramatically which is probably the real reason for the lower scores and not so much cutting out the range
I'm playing some pretty good golf (for me) and am shooting in the mid to high 80s consistently I have never been able to do that in years past.
Now I just have to get use to and comfortable playing with others, as I pretty much always play solo. But as my scores improve so does my confidence.
Greetings fellow members. Just joined the forum today. Started playing golf later in life and discovered a passion for the game. My handicap is at 13 and aiming for single digit this year. I hope to gain plenty of insight into the latest trends in golf equipment and techniques in this forum.
I have been a reader of MGS for a while now and finally decided to join the forum!
