Hi people,

I started trying golf about 3 months back and really like it a lot. Did not take me long to realise this is not an easy sport to pick up at all !

Very occasionally I will practise at ranges in the western part of Singapore. Part of the reason is being alone, there is lack of motivation to practise regularly.

Not sure if there is anyone out there who just started as well, maybe can practise and improve together? Please drop me a note k.

Thank you.

Welcome to the game. Am a newbie myself. I practice regularly at the range and course at JCC. Let me know if you are keen to hit some balls together. Have fun!

Hei!
Welcome to the forum and most importantly, welcome to this beautiful game we call Golf. Don't get discouraged on days when you think you're not hitting the ball well cuz as we all know, even the best golfers in the world suffer from days like dat. What more amateurs like us.

My advice to you if you want to enjoy this game more and adopt good habits, would be to take a couple of lessons from a teaching pro and ingrain the fundamentals in your swing. Ive never regretted the amount of money and time i spent with the pro who has helped me with my basics at the beginning.

If you're interested, we can hit the range to whack those lil white balls. There is always something to work on in this game. Smile

hmm.. adamantium stiff shaft would be interesting. although a bit of carbonadium would be good for those wanting flexibility.

for club head adamantium would probably does not require any maintenance other than cleaning. since it's virtually indestructible, you don't need to worry about the ding, scratches etc on your beloved forged iron.

that would be the ultimate keeper club for generations.. Very Happy

Stay positive, think only of those wonderful shots that you had. Focus on what you are doing right, not what you are doing wrong. That will keep you going Smile

Cheers!!

Thanks. It always the same story; went to range thinking I know from last session how to swing correctly, but turns out rubbish again...

Will keep practising ...

If it is any consolation, I hit like crap at range and hit better on course.
But that's me.

So dun be too upset with bad range practice.

Bashful, you can pm me your number then we can practice together. Most likely I will be practicing Saturday between 2-4 pm. You need one more post to be able to PM, though.

Driving Ranges are sometime too frustrating for a beginner. I was slogging off regularly and was losing interest as my game never did improve. Then I went for a spin at the JCC Executive course and hey.....I was not as bad as I thought (but still bad, of course).

A roll on the grass rejevenates the interest. Me & my friend, both beginners plan to hit JCC E-course tomorrow afternoon.
