    My chippingís finally better.
    I can actually chip and hit wedges (most times).
    Thank god.
    Going to the right as in straight right or a banana slice (curved) to the right?

    First thing I would do is go to the shop where you bought the driver and have them watch you swing it. Your grip may be weak which will allow it to slice. Your hips/shoulders may be too open to the target. You may not be finishing the swing, including not getting your weight over to the left foot, belly button pointed to the target when you finish. Have them look and let you know what they see. If that's not the problem, it might be the club. Many drivers are adjustable for direction and it may be set up wrong. Or, you may want to trade it (your shop should do so at no charge) for a draw-biased driver. They should work with you so that you're happy with the end result.

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    Shouldnít be hitting driver until you can hit a 3 wood with control and preferred shot shape. Itís a complete waste of time hitting driver with no clue where itís going. Keeping spin rate low is what makes a driver go further than 3 wood.

    Fluffing shots off the long plastic grass at the range is guaranteed to cause hitting the ball fat off grass. At the very least hit ball off the short cut mat.

    You're standing too close to the ball.......after you hit it.

    I agree with you.
    My problem hitting fat is probably coming from practice too much on the carpet.
    When I play more on the course and been away from the driving range, I have a hard time hitting off the mat.
    Thanks for the tip.
    Iíll look for the shorter ones.

    first out 9 yesterday at 6:15, could barely see until 4, shot 48. first out 18 today at 6:15. finished in 2:30. 47-49: 96 on a day when i had nothing. the course is soggy and the greens were wet and i had 34 putts, which is typical but it was a struggle all day. i also could not hit shit straight off the tee. that said my wedge play has been great (obviously, for me) lately, my iron play has improved significantly since i got fitted. bunker play solid. i've been hitting the green or close with 5iron, hybrid, 3 wood with a more consistency when that situation arises. today i had one triple and nothing worse than a double. i lipped out a significant number of putts the past two days.

    i hit driver, 3 wood and 3 hybrid at the range after 9 holes yesterday and hit them all really well. today i felt off from the start and still ground out a 96 playing quickly. it could have been better if not for 2 stupid water balls on the back.

    anyway, my card expires in 5 weeks. i am not going to make breaking 90 the goal by then, because i don't do well in golf that way apparently. i've played with 3 different 4 handicaps lately who all basically shook their heads and said they can't believe i haven't broken 90. i said it's because i'm a choker and i'm slowly working my way out of it in golf. i feel like i am right there. i'm trying to get myself to expect a putt for birdie or par -- on in 2 or 3. it's hard after working so hard for so long to accept the idea that bogeys are my friend and play for bogey. they are in some situations but that should not be my goal. my chipping and wedge and iron play have been good enough that i am starting to feel more confident that even if my tee shot is off and i have to punch out, i will still have a chance for a par putt.

    i have had a lot more looks at birdie and par in the past month than i have in a long time. i feel like i'm really close

    played 18 but not all 18 because of the way the day went.

    front 7 in +9 with 3 pars (alone)
    front 7 in +6 with 5 pars (with the boy and his buddy and dad)
    front 4 in +2 with 3 pars. (just dads while the boys are in academy)

    +17 for 18 holes (86 on par 69).

    11 pars in 18 holes is my best by a mile. 1 under bogey golf for 18 is my best ever.

    of course, it doesn't count but it's still my best day playing ever. too bad for the shitty quad and 2 triples.

    Played my first 9 of the year in a pick-up tournament. The new swing didn't make it onto the course. I should have hit a couple first to warm up. Thinned my first tee shot and spent the day making friends. 7 bogies and 2 pars. Missed 2 putts inside of 3 feet. When we finished one of the foursome was surprised at my score. He thought I'd shot much lower. Told him " I can make mediocre golf look effortless".

    A lot. Always takes me a round or two to get used to Bermuda greens.

    So got to play Nanea on the big island today. Itís not one of the top 100 courses because they donít submit it (they donít want the publicity) and not enough people play it. Created by Charles Schwab and George R Roberts about 16 years ago, designed by David McLay Kidd (who also did Bandon Dunes). I only got out here because of a random family friend connection to Roberts. Itís the most immaculate / manicured course Iíve ever played, right up there with San Francisco Golf Club.

    It was awesome...

    So sick. I have heard of that course before. Supposedly top 10 in the USA, easily, if they ever let it get ranked.

    How'd you play?

    Left a few more shots out there than I should have due to some dumb mistakes, but pretty well for the first time. 81 with 2 drops and a chip out. Probably should have been in the mid to high 70ís the way I was hitting it. Tough course, especially around the greens with some massive Augusta-like breaks / reads. You did not want to short-side yourself.
