I'll go to the range before a round and correct my slight slice before I play.


It's that easy....?


why havent i been doing that?



to think in only a few minutes on the range i can fix my slice and occasional hook and then i'll hit it straight for 18 holes

You state these things as if you are still playing and playing consistently. No one says "I'll do such and such" if they are not currently still doing said "such and such." Typically, someone who played only 10 rounds and stopped playing would say something like "I would" or "I used to." Your shtick is retarded and transparent.
So because I've only played 10 or so rounds in the past means I can never play again in the future?

All I was saying is that when I'd go play, I'd go to the range first.

Because my slice is easy to fix. I found out, through trial and error, that my swing plane was coming from too up and down... if that makes sense to you.

I just flatten it out slightly, and bam, slice is gone. I practice getting it in the right "slot", and I'm good to go.

no, all you're saying is that when you go play after only playing 10 rounds of golf you can correct a slice with a few balls on the range and be good enough to hit the ball 300 yards consistently off the tee for your round

look, if you are being honest, you really need to quit your job, hire an agent and devote all your time to golf

with your natural ability you'll be playing in the US Open by next year

I don't know what else to tell you. I was a baseball player, and there is no doubt that is where I got my power. I'm 6'3" and have long arms.

I'll go to the range before a round and correct my slight slice before I play.

I know people say a baseball swing is bad for golf, but I don't transfer my weight the same way a baseball player would.

On the range I'm around 300. Sometimes less, sometimes more.


You are so full of shite. 10 rounds and you can correct your slice on the range before a round. This is an insane lie.

re: Just started playing golf


Two things people lie about the most:

1) Dick size
2) How far they drive the golf ball

In reality though, this is always the end result of a golf thread. Someone says they can hit it 300 yards or shot a good score and there is a 10 page pissing match about it. We should just settle this like men and have this dude post a video of his swing.

Would mean nothing without trackman or some other way to not bull shite whatever distance he is claiming.

If he had said he had been playing for 10 years or 10 months even, his story could possibly be believable. But 10 rounds??? GTFO.

Next time I go, I will.

I've been wanting to play, so I'll get out there sometime soon.

Yeah, but you can usually tell how far a person can hit it by their swing. You can tell a lot about distance/ball flight just by looking at a person's tempo and weight shift.

Or you could just go outside and film yourself hitting a pine cone.

Why is that so hard to believe? It's not like hitting a golf ball was the first time I have done something requiring coordination and technique.

Like I said, I have played baseball my whole life. Turning my hips, shifting my weight, and hitting a ball comes naturally.

I would sometimes have a little slice, but I can fix it through trial and error by finding the right swing plane.

Because it's not that easy. You can keep this shtick going as long as you like, but it will never make it true.

Just fricking stop already. No one fixes a slice that easily, most certainly not someone that has only played 10 rounds of golf.

I'm out of town. But next weekend, or maybe sometime during the week I'll go to the range.

I did. I didn't fix it for good because I don't play enough. I have to make the adjustment and I can fix it for the day... for the most part.

That isn't any easier. And we haven't even touched on the distance control and course management you wouldn't have after 10 rounds. You bit off more than you could chew with the 10 rounds bullshite, just admit it already.

The only other explanation is that maybe I haven't played 10 rounds. Maybe it's 15? I don't know exactly, but it's somewhere in there. I don't keep track, but it isn't a lot. I just said 10 off the top of my head.

But other than that, everything else I said has been accurate.

Do you live at a driving range? Unless you do, your claims are still way out there.
