Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I used to golf a bunch as a kid. Got to college, sold my clubs and didn't play for 12 years.
Well I bought some clubs off of craiglist. Have gone to the driving range a few times and I've been pleasantly surprised that I can still hit it halfway ok. At least with a driver I can.
When it comes to irons, I get no loft whatsoever. I feel like my swing isn't too bad, and the ball goes somewhat far (~100-150yards on my 3 iron). However, again, I get no loft whatsoever. I see the guys around me hitting, and it seems like with no effort they are able to hit it farther and higher. I feel like I have to swing super hard to match their distances.
So I guess the question is, how do I get some height to my hits? I try and hit with the ball in the middle of my stance. Should I get it farther in front? I usually hit the ground directly in front of the ball...should I be hitting the ball more while the club head is still going down instead of up?
Any tips you guys might have I'd appreciate. Thanks!
