Hello from another Floridan

Recommended Posts

I'm originally from Georgia  but moved here in 2013 a year after retiring.

I' m a late learner coming to golf since my dad did not play neither did I until i was around several guys at work that played it finally rubbed off on me but like a lot of beginners I bought a cheap set of clubs and hacked at the ball my first few years lost interest for a couple of years then took a few lessons and tried to play a couple of times a year.

fast forward a few years I retire and me & the family move to Florida the land of year round golf and great prices & opportunities to play courses.

the first couple of years here i only played a few times and then the bug bit me hard and i started playing 2 & 3 times a week I've made some great improvements  and been practicing my week points a lot.

I am at the point now that i am almost breaking a 100 before you laugh i'm proud to say that I do not take mulligans , do-overs , pick-ups , give'mes ,and i take penalty strokes when applicable.

Greetings from Idaho! Beware that there are several grumpy Spies about that are still snowbound and are envious of your global position... :P . Really though, great group all around here and welcome in. Looking forward to hearing about your improving game!

 

Cool profile pic BTW!

Welcome aboard and since you are retired, I predict you will be busting 90 before 2018 is gone!

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.
