The only thing that I can get out of this thread, is that you get all this good stuff and talk about high swingspeeds and swing coaches, and you're still shooting 46's...that sounds to me like it's more than just short game issues. Not trying to bag on you, just saying that it's bothersome to see. On a more positive note, that driver looks sick..
Yeah, I'll hit bad shots other than shortgame, but it's mainly shortgame costing me strokes if I had to bet on it. I might hit 1-4 balls bad off the tee, and miss some greens that I don't get up and down from, even if I just barely missed the green. I've been playing 1 year, I get cool clubs, heck yeah. I love equipment, that's one of the coolest things is trying out new stuff and seeing the results, even if I'm not a great golfer yet it doesn't mean I need to be called out on it every day, what's so "bothersome" should I not be allowed to buy cool clubs? I've never seen a good golfer with a bad shortgame, ever. Nobody hits the green every time, good golfers are always scramblers, getting up and down, draining putts, and that's where I lack the skill needed to shoot lower scores, and trust me, I'm working on it..
I appreciate the compliment on the driver..
PS, high swing speeds do not make anyone a good golfer... I don't think I gain much by hitting it a little further than other kids my age.. and am I not allowed to have a swing coach? Because I shoot 46? I don't think there's a certain score you have to shoot in order to earn a swing coach, I'm trying to get better and now I'm getting dogged on for taking lessons?
And somehow people think it's just dandy to make comments like that toward me on here, I never ever hear it except for here, some people say things that help me, and are useful but what am I supposed to take from your comment? I didn't even want to reply but I'm not really sure what you mean by "bothersome" either, if you don't want to see a 19.2 handicap with a nice set of clubs, and little updates on how I'm playing this is probably not the thread for you.
