If you don't take any leason that wall will never come down. It migh move some but you will always have issues with your game. Take five leasons over the next month and hit buckets of balls between each leason. You will go backwards before you go foward but don't get discouraged. After you get your swing down take a few leason every summer to check your swing. If you have any talent you will be better then 90% of the players that you play with in just a few years. Also have one leason out on the course.

I also have difficulty hitting long irons and woods off of the fairway. I will lay up in many situations when I should be able to get on with a wood or long iron.
Got ya. Then yeah, lessons and the driving range. Wash rinse repeat!

Re: Golf Help!

Good advice in here Daseal. Schneed is pretty much spot on. Head down always, and 80% of the game is chipping/putting. Good luck.

One more thing I'll add is that golf is one of the few sports where the equipment will affect your play significantly. Don't get a cheap set of clubs just because you're new -- they will be a detriment to your progress.
To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered.
