To be honest I can't stend watching golf because it takes forever to take a shot and it isn't the most enthralling sport in the world. However, I do respect the people who are amazing at it because it really does take some skill. Some of the shots they play are simply amazing.

I went once with a few mates and the first swing I took with the club I missed the ball. I find it so hard. I then went to the driving range and I could barely break the 50 yard barrier.... Confused .

It is a hard sport to play.


Man, you live in England and you're not into golf. There are some of the finest courses in the history of man over there.


Yeah you're right... Some of the courses are just amazing. I have never personally been to any but just seeing them on the TV makes me want to go and visit one.... Don't get me wrong I don't mind playing it but I don't take it seriously when I play. I only go about once a year.... Also, I can't stand watching it as I like sports that are much more high-tempo...

I'm taken up too much with my soccer to have time for golf. Wink .

So to any of you guys that have a slice, you can't hold it like a baseball bat. You must turn you bottom hand overtop of the club. This prevents the club head from opening up, preventing the dreaded slice, which about 97% of golfers have. Laughing


I had that same problem and my coach fixed it up.
I also have a problem with spreading my feet out too much, but I feel like I get more power, but my coach said it restricts the hips, so I try to lighten-up on.
I also find it very hard to chip like 10-20 feet away from the green- I always go short of the green or all the way on the other side of the green and into the rough.

I play on the school team and I've been playing for 2 years.

Anyone else?


i try packer i try

i have a natural swing but i need so much work its not even funny


I don't know if you're in high school, but if you're not, then try hiring a local golf pro. I think almost every golf course has one and the classes are usually over the summer for like around $200. I know it's a lot, but after the classes, just practice and it will work out.
Just a thought...

Who is your guys' most/least favorite golfer?

I don't have a favorite, but I really hate Phil Mickelson. He gets me so ticked off for some reason.

Can't stand Vijay Singh, he's a miserable git. Barley smiles if he wins a tournament and I hate that daft grey cardigan he always wears.
As for the golf, I love it and have been playing for 20 years and have a handicap of 5. Use to be lower, but a bad back is setting me back a little.

Huh, I'm sort of a fan of Vijah Singh, becuase of the way he carries himself. He's very lose and just care-free.

Winged Foot is an absolute beast. I really enjoy playing golf and sport anywhere from a 13 to a 20 handicap depending on how in synch my swing is.

I love Phil, but he deserves to suffer for throwing this one away like he did. Using the driver and hitting it that horrible is all his fault. Unlike the Mavericks tonight, Phil can't blame a ref for his loss.

I just don't understand why he couldn't hit a long iron on #18. If he hit it terribly, it goes into the first cut of rough, not the tents. And he would still be able to get it near the green in two.

I thought Michelle Wie was the queen of choke. Phil one-upped her today. Monty too on 18. It shows that everyone, EVERYONE other than a Tiger, can come apart like a cheap suit when it's all on the line late.

It just sucks because I wanted to care about the British Open next month. Now I don't.

I predicted Ogilvy from the beginning to win, and he did. Kudos to him.

I wanted Oberholser to make a nice run after his -3 on Friday, but it didn't work out. Ogilvy was consistent and played great golf. He has one of the top 5 games on tour if he gets his act together.

Meanwhile, Phil looked terrible. Not just on the last hole, but all week. He holed some nice putts but couldn't drive the ball for his life. He also looks really out of shape, but hey, it's golf!

I hate Phil Mickelson a lot, so I'm happy that he choked.

I would like to know how you felt Tiger was going to play this week. I thought that he would either win it (for his father) or struggle mightily (after taking 9 weeks off).

Tiger Woods is, dare I say it, overrated. He has to prove to the Golfing world that he can come back from such a long layoff and has yet to do so. He hasn't won a major in a while, and did horribly this weekend. Parity is happening in the golf world, and Tiger, at this point, may not even be number 2 or 3 in golf for me. It goes Mickelson, Singh, Ogilvy then Woods right now. Ogilvy won the Match Play and this, so he moves up a lot.
