    common for beginners to get this sores.

    this actually tells you that you doing too tensed.

    gradually as your muscle memory of the swing improves you will be more relaxed and not feel sore at all.

    tip of the day : do not choke your grip on the club.
    you should hold the club as lightly as you would hold a live pigeon.
    golf is about finesse not strength. the tighter you hold the club, the more sore you will be and the shorter your swing circumference and therefore the shorter the distance of your ball.

    You be the organiser can?

    I've arranged twice and no response leh.

    Or you prefer that we exchange numbers to call each other whenever we feel like thwacking at a Driving Range?

    I would appreciate to thwack some balls on Chinese New Year, considering I have no places to visit and nothing much to do those 2 days & the weekend.

    Hi People,

    A friend of mine gave me a old set about 2 years ago and I only tried driving once. Would like to pick it up but know nuts about the game. Any pointers on what iron I should bring down to the driving range?

    Hi VK,

    bringing the 7 iron and no. 3 woods????? no way jose!
    those two clubs are like heaven and earth.

    if you are a beginner, just stick to getting your swing basics right with 1 club - 7 iron. after that you can progress to 5 iron. then you can alternate between all the other irons. dont go club hopping or you'll never get your foundation right.

    7 iron is best for beginner becos it;s neither long nor short, easiest to handle.

    3 wood is the longest fairway wood and relativley one of the most difficult clubs to handle. you dont want to use it till you get your irons ironed out......

    by the way, i have a set of Ping ISI nickel head irons for sale. JZ steel shafted orange dot in very good condition.

    originally $2200 , selling $700 now.
    3 to 9 irons + SW and PW.

    that means less than $80 per iron!!!!!! shops selling at least $100 for same condition.

    damn good deal, guaranteed. For genuine buyer, i'm willing to negotiate better price

    So bro, can I safely say that I should bring a 7 & 5 iron to the driving range? And one more thing, anyone know about the driving range at Sembawang? Any advice?

    Agree that woods are more difficult to handle, could never get my driver to go where it was supposed to. On the other hand I was pretty deadly with my irons. If only my putting was better......

    Go to the 3rd floor of the driving range, look for an office with window. Ask the cashier there for their store value card.

    Top up the card to the amount you are comfortable with.

    Then bring the card (with value) to a golf ball vending machine. Insert the card and press the buttons(All instruction on the machine).

    Make sure you have a basket handy at where the balls are being dispensed.

    Select a driving range, 'chop' the space, do your warm up and start thwacking the balls lor.

    careful the 3 woods....people tend to lose the heads easily at the driving range....its always that number which the range marshall always picked up on the grass out there.

    N....you are welcum.

    I think I will stick to Throttle's advice of using 7 & 5 irons first. Got to get into action soon. Hmmm.........probably will try on the 2nd of Feb.

    dont think you can use woods on the upper levels of range.

    becos if you are long hitter , may whack ball over the netting.

    In the past that was what we did at parkland (east coast)
    compete on how many bALLs hit over the driving range netting.

    hawhaw, very notti then....

    Wow, didn't know that there was a golf fever in the forum, looks like I missed it.

    Anyway, I will be keen for range anytime at night. Just drop me a message at 97452974.

    I would usually be at Mandai range cos the range balls there are by far the cheapest other than Toa Payoh. I am trying to get my Drivers and Woods to hit straight now.

    Actually, I took my PC lessons there. So the top right corner is where my coach would be. I would go play around 7~8 pm when it is not really so crowded. Rate there is $0.05 per ball.

    Another nice place to drive is Orchid CC. But there is a cover charge of $5 per card when you go there, so just use one card to play. Rate is $0.055 per ball.

    Heard that the Toa Payoh range is by far the cheapest but I haven't been there yet...

    sort of pulled one lady rider to exercise some thwwacking of the balls.

    it was the first time she was thwacking the balls at the driving range.

    and she is soooooo good at it.



    and her first time holding a golf club.....

    FYI
    There's a new driving range at CDANS at Bt Batok (next to BBDC) and they are having promo for golf shoes, price from S$39/= onwards & they have those like trackshoe type for only S$49/=. In addition to that, they are giving away freebies of 3 new golf balls and a small pouch.
    Value for $!

    I'm still trying to sell my PING ISI Nickel head irons......been offered $500 for it by the shops. Am sure they would turn around and sell it for $700.
    but i rather sell to someone who appreciates. I dont really need the money so willing to let go at $500 for a 9 piece set !!!!!

    original price i paid was $2000++
