eh... i think this thursday is beginner lesson right??

oh.. i found out the problem liao... i tried my driver at the executive golf course this morning,
ball fly sky high... apparently, the tee i use in the driving range did not elevate the ball to the right position... thats why when contact with the ball, it hit the bottom of the club face...

eh again... i thought this coming thursday de lesson is beginner de?

@joleelyn, why dun u try asking Mr. Paul if he has available slot for you? i find that he is a rather professional and amazing coach. Now i can at least hit with my iron after just an hour of simple lesson.

@Jake, i met up with Paul abt 2 weeks back @ OCC for an hour of golf lesson. Hence technically i have yet to receive any 10 lessons golf from any pro except that ad hoc encounter.

@TendyGolf, i would love to attend the session. However, i am wondering if it would somehow be "bad" to learn from 2 different coach.

RSC is a good coach, I believe you will be able to learn from him.

hey guys digging up this thread again because i've kinda hit a snag with my driver shots. i'm popping the ball up like fireworks! haha it doesn't come off the crown but it flies really high and carries about 150m. most of them are going straight with some of them going from left to right.

any idea what causes that?

i've tried reading up about it and the websites are telling me to tee the ball a little lower, little or no shaft lean, and imagine hitting the ball with my chest. so as to promote a shallower angle of attack with less spin.

any truth there?

i'm interested to know what you guys have to say! thanks bery much! Smile

try shifting the ball towards your left feet... you may be skying your ball, check the ball mark on your driver face (it would be near the top edge)...

my one cent worth...

Ironfist, come down to MBGC, looking forward to meeting you.

Without looking at your swing, we can only guess wat's wrong, cos there are lots of ways to get the results you mentioned. As evidenced by many different styles of swinging yet still achieve perfect contact. eg Jim Furyk, Jeev Milka Singh, Lee Trevino.

Best of course is to see a coach, as amateurs, we are merely the patch on the punctured tyre. Temporary at best. Still, who knows wat nugget some one might come up with that might be ur magic pill.

thanks for all your kind words guys! i'm looking forward to meeting Birdman, sunny, missmoon, ts and all the other GRers too! only thing is wednesdays i'm usually busy with school so until next time it moves to another day i'm there!

and i have a feeling i'm probably coming in too steep and imparting too much backspin on the ball.. maybe i can get a video up soon! haha
