I have always heard that it is better to create a draw or slice by changing your line up and the swing path....that being said, I do it the wrong way, by changing the position of my right hand (stronger or weaker) and it forces me to open or close the face. This is probably one reason I am not all that great :-)

I'm working on getting my shot to fade or hook when I want it to. (as opposed to slicing, which I just got over) I'm curious, is a good way to accomplish this the grip? I watched a quick video on this and was on the driving range and it seemed to work, but is there a better way?

yep play it as it lies. It works for the good too because sometimes it may hit a tree or the rake and bounced out of danger into a more favorable lie.

Thanks Jon.

Hi folks.

I've a rules-related question. I played a round of golf today, and at one stage my ball hit a rake lying next to a bunker. After hitting the rake, the ball deflected into the bunker. What are you supposed to do when something like that happens? Should I have replayed the stroke?

Anyone got a recommendation for a push cart that's not too expensive?

Wonderful Group! The game is truly timeless. 

Tip of the day: get the power in your golf swing from your left hand. Not only will this improve your consistency, but you will become a more controlled ball striker.

I just joined this group, hoping I could find people who could give me advice to learn to play and enjoy golf.

Happened about a week ago but I shot my first Ace at a local course! It, definitely wasn't my best round ever but that didn't matter after that shot!

I have a set of old Ping Irons and really like them. I first played Ping irons about 20 years ago in Hawaii. They were the rental clubs at Kapalua. I will say the most clubs by real companies now are going to be really good. You need to find the ones that you like to stand over and that feel right. Advantage to Ping is the different sizes they make, get yourself fit for your clubs. This will do more for your game than anything.

My Introduction

Hello friends!My name is Ryan, and I am from Orlando, FL.

Due to the types of jobs available, I am currently back in school pursuing a degree in Biomedical Sciences. I, like most, extremely enjoy reading and bettering…See More
