Does anyone ever go to a drving range?

And get a bucket of balls and whack them? I went for like the 3rd time in my life a week ago. That was fun as hell. We didn't care if we hooked or sliced, mainly we aimed for the dude driving the ballcart or just swung for the fences to see how far we could drive. We went to the Arrowhead golf course on Butterfield road.

Shit, it's been like 3 years since the last time I went... Now that I think about it, that sounds pretty good right now. Get my frustration out.

Only thing I didn't enjoy was how fast we went through one bucket. That sh!t adds up then. I rented a banged up Spalding driver from the pro shop.

i used to play every day during the week and sometimes on weekends. But that was in high school and college cause I was on the golf teams. After that I hit balls a couple times a year and maybe play 2-3 times a year excluding the strectch of 4 years I didn't play at all.

I go about 2-3 times a week and play 100+ rounds a year and maintain a 8 handicap = high 70's low 80's

I would like to get out with anyone from here.

I also love to teach the game, if anyone is looking for help.

Yeah, you do go thru them pretty fast. Specially if you had couple of beers in ya

You only hit it with the driver? Should try it with irons, and try to get it as high as possible. lol At least that's what I'd do, after reaching my max with the driver.

I enjoy the driving range. I try to go often but not always the case. I golf once a week with my brother(9-hole). Yeah R6bbie i could def use pointers. My biggest down fall is the apparent lift and or reach. I need the work on my mechanics!

My swing feels like sh!t, for sure. I heard someone tell me use 75% of your power, not all of it when you swing.

I actually live about 2 blocks from a golf course and a driving range. I own my own clubs. Yet, I haven't played golf or hit a ball since the 80's.

I'd be up for a bucket of balls if you could help me out sometime. I like to get out there and chase that little white ball around. Gets me outside and off the patio. Maybe with your help I might actually keep score someday and not get depresed about it.

Me too, now I'm a chop. I'm playing in a outing next week. That should be a good laugh

I gave it up for fishing, much more relaxing. And less people.


I'm pretty anti-social I suppose.
