PostSubject: hi everyone!   Tue Feb 23, 2010 1:17 am

Joined a couple of days ago had fun reading a lot of posts before posting.

A bit of my golfing history. I took one of those golf introductory courses overseas about 5 years ago had some fun but soon neglected it due to me getting really really bad shots etc swing club but ball never move and swing club got hit ball but ball hit the plastic partition that divides the bays making the very loud thump sound. Recently a friend handed down to me his old set and ever since then i have been ranging every other day.

Hoping to find kakis here so that next time can go golfing together!

Thanks for the welcome Very Happy

Will be there for starry night tomorrow. Is there a sign there to identify you guys or something? Very paiseh later go to each and every single bay and ask golfers who are swinging whether they are from GR.

Based on the weather this past couple of days what happens if the sky not cooperative? Move downstairs or postpone?

I can't pm yet not enough posts. Nvm I'll thick skin a bit go round asking ppl at the roof top tomorrow.

Do u guys wear golf shoes when ranging? Have been putting off buying a pair since I am not sure if it is necessary at this stage. But if it helps keep my shots further and straighter then I'll get on immediately tomorrow Very Happy

Get a pair of golf shoes... better grip on the mat to avoid sliding/ skidding... if you dun want to fall 3 floors down... also helps to facilitate a better golf swing when you feet is not sliding. Very Happy

Golf shoes have spikes, better tracktion against the turf or grass, should = more consistency = better golf shots.

Think most of us do wear golf shoes at the range. With the exception of one ms joleelyn, she doesn't wear any shoe Laughing

On Sunday when I went ranging I tried the "back facing green when backswing and chest facing green at the end of swing". I managed to hit btw 130-150m with my 5 iron about 9 shots out of 10 and all the shots landed maybe max 4m from the intended target. Was naturally really happy about it but the next day my back really hurt like hell.

Then on Tuesday I went ranging again even though my back still hurt but I tried another type of swing and surprisingly the pain went away after just a couple of hits. That said, that session was really bad as the balls were either not connecting or they were flying everyway.

Then on Wednesday during the starry night session found that I had totally lost the swing already.

Need some advice from seasoned golfers here. The pain I felt was it because I tried that "back facing green" thing for the first time or was it because there was something wrong with the swing?
