read the first 3 chapters there and have to say that it has really inspired me. My own journey to scratch has been more of a sunday drive rather than a focused and concerted effort. I have been saying for some time that my short game needs to be better but even though I had a big tournament coming up, I did very little short game practice. I thought I might get a copy of this book, now I know I am going to get it!

Ah the memories. Gold_Coast_Golfer, when you have a spare hour or so have a read through this old classic.

Nearly got myself banned during all this. Had an official warning from Madam's predecessor.

Firstly Hello everyone. biggrin.gif

Is it possible, in your opinion, to take a golfer who cannot
break 100 to a scratch round of 71 within one year? The golfer in
question has a full-time and very busy job and a family life too
which means that practice cannot be more than a couple of hours a
day. He is 37 years of age and of average to poor fitness.

The challenge started this week and I'd be very interested to
hear people's opinions as to whether they think it is

Many thanks


How'd ya go?

When the doctor recommended to Alice Cooper that he take up golf to deter him from boozing so much, he has said in interviews that for the first year he played 36 holes EVERY SINGLE DAY, EVERY DAY FOR A FULL YEAR. And he played most of the rounds with Pros and/ or very low markers. At the end of that first year, he'd gotten himself down to a handicap of 12. From what I here, he now play off 9
I know Alice was pretty wasted before getting into golf, but given his case, I can't see anyone progressing much quicker than that. Unless you're a kid and your parents are trying hardcore to develop you into a cracking pro golfer.frd

Just read this thread for the first time. Gets my vote for "thread of the decade". Apart from the kite string thread of course.
What can possibly go wrong?
