Great site, thanks again nootje!
Not ugly, just scruffy and nervous looking.
Very cool of you to post, thanks! I think I will mental-note your breakdown above, so when he tells me to 'suit myself' I think 'last week was driver, back to the short irons for a while' and keep myself in check like that. I am 90 percent sure if I tried to 'step change' on the upper deck at my driving range, then I will plummet to my death. No faith in my coordination at all! Will poke around that site, thanks again.
Thank you very much for those insights. Never even know you were a teacher. You will live to regret revealing this little nugget of information to me at this point in my life!Maybe 'curriculum' was the wrong word, but I suspect in a roundabout kind of way, we may actually be saying similar things. If it depends on my "abilities and progress", he should be the one assessing that, no? As opposed to saying "whatever you want Matt" and letting me decide what I will work on...
2 lessons down...progress is being made. As above, he has pulled me apart and put me back together, and the togetherness is starting to come together. A few cases-in-point (and I am prepared for mocking on my distances)...with The Matt Swing (all arms basically), I'd be proud of 100 yards with a 7 iron (!). Yesterday I was hitting my PW 120. 10 in a row actually...then the wheels completely fell off Historically I have been petrified of a driver and tended to mumble...
Congrats! I, on the other hand, just had my worst ever trip to the driving range. It was humiliating!
The drive through the winery road between sienna and Florence is lovely. Highly recommended.
Yeah. It was interesting. I grew up in Australia, where golf is cheap and plentiful, and was (or so I thought) quite well taught as a kid by my late uncle, who used to play off 8. I have played intermittently over the years. Broke 100 once, but more typically shooting around 108. Should note, we are only talking about maybe 10 rounds of golf in the past 25 years here. Generally speaking, I have always hit straight, but not far and not high. Still, there is a lot to...
Had my first lesson yesterday, set of clubs on the way from GigaGolf at present. Time to blow some more money....
Ya there are three very good courses in Danang, two in Dalat, and I am pretty closely involved with the new one in Ho Tram, which seems to be pretty widely regarded as the best in the nation. That involvement is part of the reason why I am getting into golf now. That and being old. Thanks for the suggestion above. Not a vanity thing, just fair to say the climate I live in here is as far from that of Blighty imaginable...35 degrees (C) and sunny every day. I am also blind...
