    Fat shots

    I think I finally found something (haven't we all said that a million times)that seems to be helping with hitting fat shots. When I go to the range, I set up normally, with the club in the middle of my stance for iron shots, and put the ball inside my left foot, like I was hitting a driver...

    I got two questions...

    1. I don't mind taking a mulligan once per round, but only if other players in my group are also doing it. I don't mind re-teeing a shot, but I don't like giving putts. I always like to putt out, even if it means I'll 4 putt, which I've done so many times.... I don't really care about my...

    Shawn Clement

    So I was just browsing around on youtube for golf stuff, and I came across this Shawn Clement guy for the first time. After watching one of his videos, I started watching more and more. I don't know if it's just me, but just the way he explains things makes everything seem so clear and...

    I'm not sure I fully understand

    That's what I think too! I mean, it is only 15 yards. But then again, how many times would we have liked to be 15 more yards left or right of where we ended up. I'm trying to learn how to move my golf ball around the course more strategically, starting with the tee box. But I have trouble...

    I'm not sure I fully understand

    which side of the tee box to tee up from. Is there a general rule, or is it different for every hole?

    Buying a new putter

    yea I meant 34 inches and I want to lower it to 33 or so. Alright so I should cut it, give it a shot, and then figure out if I need to make more alterations to it after.

    Buying a new putter

    I'm looking to buy a new putter, the Taylor Made Daytona Core classics. Here's the problem. I can't find one that's short enough. I can buy a putter that's 44inches, but it is still a bit too long and I have to hold the club near the middle of the grip. Does anyone know anything about...

    Adams Speedline

    Has anyone ever tried using this driver? It has good reviews but I want to know what people here think of it. I'm going to demo it when I return home to Canada... can't wait.

    New Golfer - little money - suggestions?

    Go to local courses and practice the short game. It's usually free and you can just play mini-games against your friends. Then, try to play weekday twilight times. My brother and I pay about 20 dollars each at start golfing at about 5pm, super twilight?. We only get about 15 or 16 holes in...

    After today's round, two questions come to mind

    I was never expecting to find a quick fix to my problems. But that's part of the reason I love golf so much. I'll keep working on the feeling confident thing. I'm just glad I'm aware of it so I can work on it. As for tempo. I know I have to somehow transfer that smoothness you talk...

    Potential career advice needed.

    I don't think it's ever too late. I say go for it if you won't hurt any other part of your life (i.e. spending too much time on it and not focusing on other important parts of your life) I unfortunately don't have any success stories for you, but I secretly also share your same dream. I'm still...

    After today's round, two questions come to mind

    1. How are you supposed to remain confident, play without hesitancy, when your swing that day sends the ball in every direction except backwards. It's such a vicious cycle too. After the first 2 or 3 holes of bad shots, fear sets in. And it's because of that fear I can't swing as freely...

    Golf strategy

    Wow, all this information. I think I get it though. I'm gonna try it, I play next thursday and friday, and post what I noticed... I understand what you mean when you say, most of the time people who go down one club might screw up anyway, but I think the difference between making a mistake...

    Golf strategy

    The first two definitely make sense. I think for the 3rd point, you mean hit my tee shot so even if I am 180 yards out, then I can hit my next shot so I have lots of outs should I make a mistake (I think that's what I interpret from that) As for point #4. Say I hit my longest club and I'm...

    Golf strategy

    It's funny, I think it makes complete sense. But it isn't natural for me to think from green to tee just yet. I'm going to try to explore this idea a bit more...

    Golf strategy

    Sorry, how about one more hole to help me get some more ideas. Your Source for Exceptional Golf I'll give you my plan and you can tell me if there's anything else I should consider. I would leave my driver in my bag because of my tendency to be wild with it, and since the landing area in...

    Golf strategy

    So, what do you think would be a not basic and smart principle? Over thinking?

    Golf strategy

    How far does your 5W go though? My 5W would take me right into the fairway bunkers if I missed. To be honest, I never consider wind. I'm not that great of a player, so my only concern is getting it out there. But I'd like to start thinking differently.

    Good strategy as well. I like all of them including that one.

    Golf strategy

    I've read about how people should play a golf hole from tee to green, but I really don't understand it all too well. I also don't understand golf strategy all to well either, as in which club should I hit and why. Could some people give me some examples of how they would play this hole? Your...
