Guys, I know that for the most of you it is an everyday thing, but I played 96 and for the first time in my life, below 100!!

I can touch the moon with a finger right now.

My G400 set, from driver to LW helped a lot.

I really wanted to share it with you.

Congrats man, welcome to double digits! I wouldn't say the goal is to break 90 yet, that seems to be the instant mentality like the first time I broke 80. The more important thing is to continually break 100 until you break into the 80s. Consistency is key!

Again, congrats!

This is how you get addicted to golf and improving your game. I was in the same boat when I started playing golf two years ago and now I've found myself in the stay below 90 stage. Congrats on getting under 100.

Thanks to everybody.

Actually, I am already quite addicted. Couple of months ago Iíve asked my wife if she could take a video, while swinging.

She replied that Iím nuts and at least before I was asking for much more interesting videos..
Then I grabbed the night table and moved it in the correct position to shot the video. Problem solved.

Congrats. I shot a 104 on Saturday with brand new clubs. Only lost one ball too, though it wasnít my fault as someone playing in our fairway hit mine. If I can straighten out my driver it would be so much easier.

So true. Today I was really positive and the bad shots didnít make me blue as before.

I recently changed the grip under instruction of my pga coach and added more rotation before impact. I feel my game much more solid and I knew that the next shot can be better.

Congrats.   Welcome to the never ending rat race to the bottom.  For me, I'm shooting in the high 70s with 81/82 being my bad rounds.  As poster above said, 100 rounds will be come your bad.  

At 100, focus on keeping it in play and taking high percentage shots.  Here I come par 😁

Congrats, enjoy your accomplishment! To keep going, identify what part of the game costs you the most strokes and continue working on everything, but work a little extra on that issue which is costing you the most. At the breaking 100 level, that 'one part' can be a little of everything, and if that is the case and there's a practice green nearby, work on your chipping, you can make up/'steal' a lot of strokes there as you improve at that skill. Side benefit: chipping practice is free and you don't need to consume a lot of time doing it - you can learn valuable shots in half an hour of messing around trying to get the ball close to the hole.
