Actually I do play golf 2 - 3 times a year, and do enjoy it. Kind of. Even though I started practicing seriously for a while 15 or so years ago, I never could break 100. Yeah, its that bad.

That said, any excuse to get outside for a while. Just so happens I am a better shot with a rifle or shotgun than I am with a golf club.

Besides, its easier to get birdies that way, but its a good idea to stay away from eagles.

I may be able to help you with that score. Let me know and I will come your way and play a round of golf with you. I play to a 18 Handicap.

Here I am....I'll remove later. Meantime, I guess it can be copied/downloaded...Swing looks pretty good?
Crusader,

I have reviewed the movie and if it is really you, I see that the stance needs to be modified. The weight needs to be place a little more on the right side. The follow through looks pretty good. The finish is also good. You are opened toward the mark. Your hips need to turn a little more quickly. Other than that, it looks ok.

Where are most of your golf strokes (ie, chipping around the green, sand shots, or pitching) generated?

Yes, 'tis I. The swing(hips) was intentionally slowed down for this particular video. The weight on the right side....probably because it was just a practice shot that it looked "off" but I will try it regardless and make sure the weight is properly placed. Thanks!

Driver - fighting to keep straight so I've gone back to an old unconventional swing that goes straight 90%. Farthest drive on video 195 yds. I've gone further by 20-30 yds including "the roll". Nearly all of my iron shots are straight. Sand: typically in and out in 1 stroke - lots of practice there :lmao: . Pitching onto green is not great but I get there somewhere on the green! Chipping is better than the pitching.

Did you slice or hook your drive?

195 Yards is a pretty good drive and if you can get the extra 20-30 yards, great.

Iron shots pretty good and straight, does that include the long irons (3,4,and 5)? Sand shots that is great. Once out in one shot is the putt made? Does this include fairway bunkers? (That is where I sometimes miss).

Pitching can be improved. What is the distance that you usually pull out the wedges?

To me it looks like you have a bad slice, or maybe just push everything right.

If you want to shave strokes, practice chipping and putting. The average golfer spends 1/3 or more of his strokes on the green which offers the greatest potential for improvement. Your chips from green side should leave you within a bushel basket from the pin where 1 putts become a reality. If you are now shooting 108 for 18, I would guess you are better than average on a normal day. Correct me if I am wrong but I am guessing if you count your putts you are averaging between 36 and 40 putts or a little over 2 per hole.

If you get deadly with your chips, the number of putts will come down considerably. If you are going to practice, do it on and around the green. Practicing your drives may make you look prettier but you will only get to use your driver 9 or 10 times on the average course.

If, on the other hand, your problem is with the driver and you are using up 20 to 30 strokes for out of bounds, unplayable lies and duffed drives, I suggest you put the driver in your trunk and tee off with a 5 iron. Don't waste time practicing on something you don't use.

Just my opinion.

So True. I reduced my strokes by at least 1/3 by using the "bump and run" technique on the chips.
