Do you ever feel like you practice too much? For me the result can be pains (lower back, golf elbow) or getting sloppy.
I have a 9 year old son who loves to ride his bike/skateboard/scooter outside and so while i'm supervising him, i'm hitting foam balls in the front yard. My neighborhood is also the home to an abandoned golf course that still is still wide open and gets mowed. So i go practice my short and mid irons with real balls on my lunch break 3-4 days a week.
I love this game! But sometimes i have to give it a 5 day break and i'm generally better after that break.

This! I feel addicted to this game even though I suck at it! I just love seeing that ball come off the club clean and straight. I broke 100 last year and I WILL BREAK 90 this year. Hoping I can do it before summer. Going to play 9 holes on Saturday and a full 18 on Monday.
Thanks for the support!

Not doubting what you say, Mike, but when i look at all the various swing techniques on tour i tend to think, use what works for you. I mean, there are the basic's like face, path, and attack angle required to hit a straight shot, but outside of the club orientation at impact, it seems to be whatever works - bring it!
Examples: Jim Furyk, Matt Wolfe, and Bubba Watson are 3 fairly unique swings.
Again, I agree that some professional lessons are in my future. FWIW, i do have one of my kids record my swings in slo-mo on the iPhone so i can see if the club is getting shallow or if my head is coming up.
