Seems like a lot of guys are leaving shots short of the green
My advice is while at the range focus on your irons. Newer players always want to focus on their drivers.This thread is mainly for the casual -- or avid -- golfers on NT, but PGA discussion is probably unavoidable.
I started getting into golf a few summers ago, but was never a consistent goer. I've collected a few clubs here and there, mainly hand-me-downs and I'm ready to go from a just-a-thing-to-do golfer to more casual. As in, I want to go at least, two weekends a month, but try for 4 or 5 times in total a month.
I suck though.
I heard everyone starting should get lessons, so I'll get on that. Other than that, the best tip I received thus far is in terms of driving. I'm the common slicer guy, but an in-law suggested rolling over my left hand (I'm a right handed golfer, if that helps) more inwards on my grip in order to eliminate the slice. For the most part, that has helped tremendously. Now my goal is consistency, but also learning my clubs.
I went to the driving range yesterday and only hit with my pitching wedge and driver. I need to get down my distances and various shot techniques with my pitching wedge -- I feel that it's important -- before I advance to the other clubs. Normally, I'd guess at what club to use or listen to someone else I'd be playing with, but the results were scatter shot, so I'm stripping myself to the basics for now.
