brassedoff69Harder Than I Thought

I did actually spend some time on this last year. I did get frustrated. Will work more on it this year! 3 months ago


karassaI have my own clubs!

I played a scramble during a departmental team-building outing. It was an absolute blast, and then my boyfriend convinced me to get my own clubs, and we’ve been playing a bit or hitting some balls at the range. It’s quite fun! I’m still terrible though, and would probably benefit from a lesson or three! 7 months ago

I tried to learn to golf last summer, but my schedule didn’t allow me to do it. I hope I can do it in this spring and summer. 13 months ago

raindropsgolf practice

On the golfing trip I was just on, we had 2 days of golf lessons.

Day 1, we worked on ‘grip, aim, setup’ and our drives. Driving is hard! especially because I didn’t have gloves, and my left arm hurt so bad after a couple of hours of gripping a club. I drove with a 7 iron.

Day 2, we did some putting. Putting was much more fun. It’s a lot more gentle and just mind work. I find I put with too much strength. So what I did to make my put softer was to say in my head ’ gently, gently’ at the moment of hitting the ball. My puts were definitely more gentle then. I think it’s psychological.

I’ve put some money into the game: I’ve invested in a golf glove.

I need to find a driving range that works for me and do this weekly or possibly more frequently – like, after work; I’ve seen a couple of driving ranges on the route back. 16 months ago


raindropsgolf - the beginning

I’m not very keen on golf but my company’s big on golfing so I’ll take this as a great opportunity to learn!

I tried golfing once, at the driving range, but I couldn’t even hit the ball! :o

I never went back, but now…

We’re going on a trip next week and golfing is the main event. There’ll be lessons for beginners too, I hear, so I’ve signed up, and will approach this stately sport with renewed vigour and optimism. 16 months ago

ive never really had the time or money but golf has always something ive heard nothing but good things about. Its a big time commitment but in the experience ive had with golf its quite relaxing and no too taxing on the body

Since my original entry I’m really happy to say I finally completed this goal. I played for free and learned from my friends this past spring. I had a lot of time last May to practice and ultimately got to the point of being proficient enough to beat some of my friends at school. I bought a student golf membership this summer and golfed pretty regularly. I’m glad to finally check this off the list as something I worked hard at and ultimately achieved much sooner than I had anticipated. 3 years ago


jantwicThis is especially hard for me

I find this to be extreamly hard because I am lefthanded and I don’t have the means to go out and take lessons 3 years ago


Peggy HillChip and Putt

Last week I went to a Par 3 Chip and Putt. I did okay and had lots of fun. I even got Par on one hole! I also went to the driving range this week. I am consistently making contact with the ball. Hooray! 3 years ago
