Welcome to the game of golf Ricky! An old saying "you know you are going to hit bad shots and have bad days, you just dont know when!"

Ricky

Keep reading your Bob Rotella books...He tells you how to work on your swing technically when you practise and how to just trust it and just hit your shots, without any swing thoughts on the course...I've been doing this for a couple of years and play off scratch and better when I get to practise regularly and can tell you it's a great approach..He calls them trust mode (on the course) and training mode (thinking technically when practising).If you really learn what he talks about in his books you get to a stage after a few weeks when you can be as technical on the range as you want to ingrain your swing changes and then simply choose your shot and hit it on the course with no swing thoughts at all..It makes golf like other sports like footie..You never think technically how to cross a ball or take a free kick or corner and so you need to get your golf like that..Get his book called The Golf Of Your Dreams and that will teach you how to practise and then take it to the course without the technical confusion..Be patient though, it isn't easy to change your approach at first but it's definitely worth it.

yeah ive been reading some rotella books there real good.

Just gone back to basics at the range tonight and tommorow ill be on the range ingraining the basics back into my swing! I havent got no competitions for about 3 weeks i think which is good :-)! But the next competition is the County Championship

At the range i was doing quater swings making sure im getting full wrist hinge and the club is on plane and all the basics!

So for the next 3 weeks, lots of mirror work and range work and once i got my swing back to where it was then I can go back too PLAYING GOLF!

Mind you it was going to come soon I had already dropped 3 shots off my handicap since start of april and shooting around par! So I had to go through a bad spell soon and its all apart of learning seeing as im still only 15.

Rick

you know, Ricky, to stop practicing, and just going out and playing for fun is not the worst thing to do.  Just turn off the brain.  Go out and play a match, Mr. Titleist ball vs. Mr. Callaway ball.  Try this for fun.  PLay two balls off the tee.  then pick the worst of the two and play it.  Continue on playing the worst of your shots.  Get your mind off mechanics for a little while.  It works.  Often we lose site of just playing for the fun of the game we love.  We get too results oriented.  Remember that Winston Churchhill wishes he could be out playing golf today.

2 weeks is a long time to a 15 year old! I can remember when.....

I have only read bits of Rotella material from articles in magazines and I like what he has to say. I read Fearless golf by Gio Valiante, and I think it helps me on the course. He repeats his motto over and over on TGC. When you get to the tee, ask yourself- What is my target? That and- What kind of shot do I need to play on this hole? It's part of my preshot routine now before I walk in to the shot and it helps me to mentaly "wipe the slate" before I hit my shot. It can't get much simpler than that.

Ricki for a young guy with only a few years of experience, you've got some tools! If the short game is as good as the full swing you may be headed for big things.

 If I had Gio's voice in my head saying anything, I'd have to put a bullet in it.
