I have not been to fairway range... usually frequent OCC or bishan range

Occ & bishan also crowded range...but I like OCC range

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.

U means during wk days?

Yep wkdays. I'll go MBGC during weekend

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.

Is it due to the swing or mat? I thought the swing shd be standard?

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

Ya I totally agree with you on the coordination of many aspects. I somehow felt I'm an octopus trying to rem all and ensuring the right setup. I only managed to correct my turning posture lately.... Too used to my old habit until my coach enlighten me and it help me greatly when I play at mandai course. So now trying to ensure my muscle memorize it too

I wonder how will the crowd be at fair way range later on.

Are we? Haha... Are you going fairway range?

Nah... I prefer to go in the day time. Also to less crowded range.

In case my Charles Barkley swing kills anyone

Yep same here.. I prefer less crowded range... can really relax and not so pressuring

Yupe, a few good companion in golf is much more appreciated than a crowd.

Anyway most range in JB here is not that crowded and some of them also have turf area which I prefer over golf mat.

And may your muscles memorise things as well as a PSLE student.

Nice try in using this trick to see whether or not she is attached/single.

Touché.

I applaud your open sneakiness which would have otherwise escaped the eyes of the lesser trained.

Many Thanks.

OK, Thanks for pointing it out.

I wasn't paying much attention to this thread as I thought Alice Leong was your forte.

I'm trying to win a war over at Irene Yeo's thread so might have been a challenge for me to battle on two fronts.



Many Thanks.
