LISTEN TO TIMMY> HE IS WISE.Japheth, Take a lesson. I'm not kidding, Golf is an incredibly difficult game to master, take a lesson and begin learning the right way instead of ingraining bad habits. You'll thank me later.
I was lucky if I could get it to the ladies' Tee.Good Work, Man!!
It might feel like taking a step backwards at first, but slowing things down, taking lessons, and limiting your use of clubs to the ones that are more forgiving, will get you started off the right way. That's HUGE!
Pro golfers on the PGA Tour take lessons and lay off hitting certain clubs (when their swings are feeling wonky) all the time.
Blackfoot eh? Let's hope he doesn't shoot as high as he posts...!! LOL
The "zero friction" tees, and the like, are 100% gimick. The ball is no longer in contact with the tee before it leaves the club face. Any friction caused by the tee is negated by the ball being in contact with the club face. Side spin is caused by the swing (face angle and swing path) not the tee.Use 'em all the time. They help eliminate the side spin us duffers tend to put on the ball.
Often very true. Sometimes it may travel a long distance, but do so at nearly a right angle. 250 yards when 200 is straight and 50 are the to the right isn't very useful on most courses.I learned an important lesson this weekend. The harder you try to hit the ball, the less distance you'll likely get.
