That's the whole point :3

My friend tells me if i can get decent contact playing on cow grass, it'll be easier to play on tidwarf. Idk how true it is, but heck, any range on grass is decent enough for me. almost feels like on course.

Hehe... I guess the cow grass won't make much difference to me since my golf is still not up to standard yet.

I know I need to be patient with golf but I feel :S when seeing others' balls can fly high and far...... hrmm... when can I do the same? Rolling Eyes

I think we all get that feeling. When i was training, my friend's contact was sharp n sweet. His ball flew 140m, mine 50m.. U just stare and wonder, wtf... I spent 6-8 months before I went on the first executive.

Same, I prefer OCC too. If you reach there early abt 5+, the crowd is still ok. It'll be packed from 7 onwards unless we go to the second level.

Is it bcos we are stressing ourselves? I do heard from some golfers that golf is also a mental game... Which I thought only mahjong is... Haha

I used to think my swing was decent because on normal golf mats, the balls fly very decently even if the sole of my club doesn't contact the mat at the bottom of the swing... When I used the same swing at turf city range or actual golf course, 50% of the shots can't fly. Now I try to practice at Turf City at least once in every 3 range session.

Mental games. Different types. I still hate mahjong but love Golf. Maybe cuz its a technical sport.

Hmm. I guess its the stage of getting used to the technique and feel of the clubs. So many technical aspects of the swing comes into play the moment u want to execute it. Grip, posture, legs steady, hands in front of the ball (how much in front of the ball, i also can mess up). Turn body? I turn arms only What a Face so on so forth. lol.

Until muscle memory takes over, most people have to contend with getting used to the proper set-up and swing.

Stress, does affect some people. I think it did for me. More of frustration than stress la right. heheh
