I have noticed after taking enough golf lessons that I focus on each shot and do not know what my score is and each shot is just that. When I add it up it is low!

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

My round today was pretty ordinary, and about normal for me. 41/41 for an 82, Nothing real great, and nothing real bad. No three putts, 3 one putts, and I finished with the same e-6 ball I started with. 12 bogies, 1 birdie, and 5 pars for a +11. (par 71) The one birdie was a 2 inch tap in on a par 3. The ball hit the flag, and dropped straight down, next to the hole. If not for the flag stopping the ball's flight, I would have flown the green by a few yards. Sometimes being lucky is better than being good.
Next week I will be in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. There's a course near FT Worth that kicks my back side every time I play it. Rockwood I think they call it. 90 will be a great score for me based on my previous adventures there. I can't putt on those greens for some reason. I need a level to see the breaks. Iron Horse is another favorite for me while visiting there.

How dose it make you feel to play golf when the weather is a little off?

I'm a new golf player if it is alright, if I wanted to take lessons would you have any suggestions?

Thank you,

I'm new in the game of golf. What would you say would be a good score for a new player?

Let me see if I can answer your questions
1. As an avid golfer, I play when the weatehr is bad, if you prepare for it, it is not too bad, but of course would prefer to only play in nice weather
2. I would suggest just going out and having fun to start, and if you find you enjoy it, consider lessons, but the mail goal should be to have fun.
3. a beginning golfer will have scores wildly disparate. from 100 to 140 or more. if you can get close to 100 as a beginner, you are doing good

I think it is a good idea for you to get back into golf. This way you don't have to be concern about your health. Golf will not only relax you but it will keep your mind off the thinks that make you feel bad also make you physical stronger. Cajun just take it a day at a time don't push it and before you know it you'll able to play like you did years ago.

Go play Cajun you deserve to have fun. God Bless you,

Dennis I was always told, if you want to be like the masters you have to study the masters. If you're able to follow what they do to the tee, your chances of becoming as good as they're can be 100% and maybe even better.

Dennis check out Mr. Woods swing. Study everything about his swing over and over again. Study his arms, feet, legs, back. head, everything. Then see yourself doing it over and over again.

Dennis before you know it you'll have a swing just as good as Tiger.
Here check out Tiger Swing at my blog.

Well a week ago last Tuesday I played in a 3 club wind in Grants NM. Shot 91 with 38 putts. This is the same wind storm that was blowing trucks all over I-40 with dust white outs common. Straight putts were few and far between with the wind. Don't know why I was out there, but I was.

A week ago Last Thursday I was playing Iron Horse just north of FT Worth. Shot an 84 in cloudy some what windy, wet, cooler weather. Had 29 putts during that round.

Last Saturday we only played 14 holes. That's when course marshals at some little track I forget the name of, ushered us off the course due to rain. After 14 holes I had a 70 with 25 putts. I figure that would have been a high 80, or low 90 score again.

Just could not catch a break with the weather on this Texas trip. Thought about playing on the way back to Vegas, but my wife and I have come down with some sort of Texas crud. It started showing up the day we left. Seems one of the folks (2 year old) we were visiting had come down with strep throat. His Mom took him to the doctor for a rash on his face, and that's how they found the strep throat. Our local doctor has us both on amoxicillin. This, after two shots each in our back sides. I have coughed so much that my insides hurt.

Up side is I am losing some un-wanted weight, Dropped 15 lbs since Monday.

Ouch! Tough diet pal...

I've played 2 days in a row for the first time in a bit over a year. Today, my score fell under the category of, "If UGLY was a number, that's what I shot." It would be easy to blame the new clubs, but I just didn't have any feel all day and my putting was atrocious.

Saturday... Fool that I am, I live in hope.
