PostSubject: Hi Folks!   Tue Dec 29, 2009 10:44 am

Hello all..I'm new to Golf Republic. I have a 15 hcap according to MyGolfKaki and I struggle against the push or the slice all my golfing life. My long game is not so bad, i'm lousy with wedges, in the sand even worse, putting laughable, but I keep coming back..

I don't have a membership to Spore country clubs, so hope we can get together to form enough balls on weekdays morning at clubs who allow visitors. I usually go to the MBGC greens or at Turf City range on Saturday mornings.

Have a merry christmas and wish everyone lots of birdies in 2010!

Cheers!

Welcome to the Golf Republic, pushslice. I push/slice/fade my balls all the time... so can empathize Smile

Good or bad shots are all relative....what is bad for you is actually what I am aspiring to have......

I do visit pros for a tune up, and my slice would be gone...then it will come back again. Pros tell me I'm sliding too much laterally on the downswing, and my hands don't release fast enough to keep up, and hence the push/slice. I know the problem, know the solution but just can't make them permanent. Guess old habits die hard.

thanks for the welcome guys!

Roystonn, saw your swing on youtube (is that you on 090909?). solid meh, can hit the ball off deck with fairway wood cleanly. Yes, let's continue the struggle, maybe I can join you on the next starry night on Jan 6th.
