Congrats! And way before schedule!

Looking at your card
- when u GIR, you got par or bird. 8 of 18 is damn good!
- when u dont GiR, you scrambled 3 out of 10 times.
- 32 putt a round is def good enough. Avg pro putts 30 a round. 

Really cool to see this journey. Tks for sharing.

Hi Guys,

Well done mate a sound achievment to be sure.


decided to set a personal challenge to break 80 by end of this year.

A little bit more about myself :

-25 years old
-handicap 8.5
-currently play around high 80s, occasionally low 90s due to drastic swing changes
-plays a round of 18 every weekend
-hit the range at least 2-3 times a week

Was plagued with back aches after coming back to golf after 7 years of break, and decided i was probably doing something wrong in my swing.
Took the plunge and changed my entire swing, throwing my game totally off.
Putting is horrible too, which will require alot of effort to improve. Cant find a place near my house to practice my short game, may end up
getting a putting mat if neccessary.

What will be posted here -
Updates on every round of golf that i play - if i can i will attach a snapshot / photo of the scorecard.
Weekly planning of what I will attempt to master during the week at the range.
videos of my swing perhaps every 1-2 mths to document swing changes.
Thoughts of what I have learnt, and hopefully I can learn some stuff from you guys here.

and lastly, let me know if you guys are interested to practice together ^_^
I usually range at the bishan range, and golf on the weekends at MBGC

 when i start breaking 80 consistently i'll change the thread title maybe. 
it could be just luck that i broke it, so i gotta work more to be more consistent and hit more GIRs.

like they said, once is heng, twice is still heng, three times onwards theres some skill already Razz
