I usually hit 3 iron, 7/8 iron (depending on wind & pin sitch) on that hole (blues). I think it's more than a 'slight' dog leg left.

yeah play it the same from the blues, usually a hybrid to get it a little further down there.  3 wood is a better play from the blacks if I was giving a crap that day.
it’s not like I’m tired of WINNING, but dude, let me catch my breath.

I meant to say it 'feels' more than a slight dog leg left. Elevated green that's undulated making birdie (let alone eagle) tough. I always play my second shot a club long.

That’s why nobody gave a eff, everybody has seen plenty of lucky shots before.

Since you know the course I made a 2 on #7 once from the blues on a 10 foot putt, probably 25 mph down wind.

Been on from the blues on 7 and 11, never made my putt though.  Was 5 yards from the green on #5 once (might have been whites). Funny how the strong south wind giveths on the 4's and takeths away on the 3's.

#2 and #17 usually eat my lunch

how do you play #2, I quit going over, I hit something short of the creek, knock an iron short of left bunker and then try to wedge it close.  #17 is tough a lot of guys play to the middle every time but it’s always a tough 2 putt. (There’s a lot of talk about an extra club on that one too)

I also quit trying to carry the creek. I'm usually in the trees on the left or right the entire length of the hole.

17 is def a plus one club.

I learned to play golf on a par 3 course and never learned how to hit a driver, usually tee off with an iron. I recently acquired a driver and am absolutely awful at hitting the ball.

I've been practicing with wiffle balls in my backyard and can crush everything but when I try to hit real balls on the course nothing works.

Please help me learn how to hit a driver.

if taking an actual lesson isn't your thing, find some video on youtube or something where Tom Watson or someone shows you the basics.  if that's not your thing either, play the ball forward in your stance and swing easy.

what kind of shots are you hitting?

whenever i practice irons a ton and hit driver i tend to rush it. agree with mm and swing easy, on the backswing at least.

The ball should be in your stance farther up, ideally just inside your left foot provided you are a right handed player.  With irons your swing path is steeper, with a driver you want to sweep it off the tee.  The driver itself might be an issue as well, would probably recommend a club head with 10.5 degrees of loft and a regular flex graphite shaft.

Finally getting some success with my driver so I'm hoping everyone can help me out with another issue in my golf game.

Usually my Iron game is on point but at least once a round I have a complete meltdown for like 2 holes where I cant hit an iron to save my life. I hit too far under it, take a giant chunk of ground out and the ball goes about 20 yards to the right at a 45 to 30 degree angle. I usually overcompensate by moving my right thumb back to make me hook the ball until I stop melting down.

Is this all Mental?

I suggest abandoning the worthless game of golf entirely.   Throw your full weight into fishing.   On the weekend of majors spend the morning fishing and then take a break with some cold adult beverages and watch someone else play golf.    Your life will be much more enjoyable.

 i think you just need more practice really. hitting tons of balls isn't the best for hitting the ball straighter, but it'll surely improve you hand-eye and you'll hit the ball solidly.

hard to say what's wrong though, need to look at the swing

If any kc EMAWS are looking to play golf with anyone let me know. My bros are only good for every other weekish and im trying to play twice a week.

Just played a solo round at teetering rock for $21 with cart and shot a 85(only 1 par 5, 21 over par)

My goal is to consistently shoot under 100 by the end of summer.

played that course last year, it's hilarious.  The heart shaped green.  The random dinosaur "art".  Fairly fun course tho.

Anyone have any recommendations for free golf apps? I recently downloaded 18 Birdies and its pretty good, just wondering if there is something better out there I am missing.

I mainly use it for the GPS showing distance to the green and to determine my handicap, also use the "shot tracking" feature to measure how far I can hit each club.

Played 9 holes on tuesday night at Heart of America with a buddy then played a solo 18 sesh at Minor Park last night....Got a legit birdie on a par 4!!! Just crushed the drive 176 yards then used my PW to put the ball about 5 ft away from the hole. Gawd that was a great feeling.
