Do get some lesson to ground your fundamental right.

you can go for 2 person lesson with yuki, but no more than 2. The more people in 1 lesson = lesser attention per student, plus to arrange a time for all to be free might be an issue.

Also OFF TOPIC:

Today, I was at TPY.

There is a range staff there who is friendly and has good intentions I am sure, but gave me unsolicited advice about hitting straight and golf equipment options.

I dun mind but I was chatting with the cute F&B girl and taking a rest.

After he saw me hit a few to 180-190 metres and dead straight down the range, he started giving me advice about getting 'better' golf equipment. (I use 907/909 Titleist woods & Nike CCi irons and ProV1 golf balls.)

Then after he saw me whack a few balls within a three metre area at about 90 metres using my Nike CCi forged blade nine iron, he wandered away to 'bother' somebody else.

He kept asking me why I dun aim at the targets (and pay the extra money for the PlayGolf system). I said if I can hit straight at will, it's just a matter of determining average distances for each club.

Rolling Eyes

No harm I suppose, but I wonder who trains people like him?

Shocked

Okay, Blee2007.

The others in the flight dun have to worry as my handicap has been going UP from 24 to as high as 29.

I always get a few 'blow up' (disasterous) holes that negate any chance of a decent final score for 18 holes.

CU. Thanks for booking.

Hey HooterMan (Clarence Kim),

Your slip is showing!

First you said this about TPY,

Then later on you said this,

So how come if you are driving dead straight and pitching to within a 3 metre radius, your handicap is 24? And climbing still into skirt territory, 29?

You are a golfing anomaly!

ROFL lol! ROFL

That's an oxymoron, like army intelligence. ROFL

He must be a range player only la.... once on the course and don't have the driving range bays to assist with auto alignment, cannot aim straight liao.. that's the only explanation I can come up with, cos he not buaya le, as far as I know. My wallet never kena raped by him before.

Please do Blee2007, verification is needed to clear my confused mind on the state of CK's game.

Ready to move to the ladies tee, golfing machine, or buaya in sheep's clothing.

ROFL

Enjoy the game!

Can always check the SGA handicap registrar Urself.

Birdman is prolly correct, on an actual course, play is far more difficult.

That's why I have been practising short-game skills.

I dun care anymore whether I can hit to 250+ metres nowadays, cos up to 70% of golf is from under 120 metres (at least if you get close enuff with two or less strokes from tee-off depending on the holes' par ratings).

And lag putting is crucial to low scores.

Birdman has played with me last year on the Tampines course at Tanah Merah.

Short-game mistakes (blading too far, chunking the grass on short pitches/chips, misjudging distances, etc) and a few double-par holes keep me from getting lower scores.

Sad

But like most here on this forum, I always hope for some improvement eventually.
