I was just curious as to how many coaster enthusiasts are also golfers. Golf actually consumes much more of my time than coasters although they are easily my #1 and #2 hobbies.

Marty,

I play golf on occassion, but it is too slow for me so I prefer coasters. Considering the fact that I only play maybe once I year and it around a 105 I guess I am not doing to bad.

Just like me Eric...when your golf score is higher then the speed of the fastest rollercoaster you gotta stick to coasters! LOL. Yeh, I try to play golf and I work at a Golf Course....(Caves Valley, US Senior Open 2002), so ya know...

Im like you, Marty, golf takes up more time than coasters. Probably because the nearest park is 2 1/2 hrs away and the nearest golf course is 2 1/2 minutes a way. I golf 2 or 3 times a week during the summer, and most weekends during the spring and fall. Unfortunatly, I still shoot in the 90's. But Ive only been playing for 3 years, so I guess I dont play that bad........

I'm not a huge golfer, but I do come from the country that invented the game - Scotland. In my home town (Edinburgh) there are 18 municipal golf courses, and of course it's only a 1/2 hours drive to St Andrews from there. If ever you are coming over give me a shout and my friends will put you up. Scotland has RUBBISH coasters - but great golfing facilities (but go easy on the tartan you guys - it's tacky!)

Ah, I love golfing, no, I'm not all that great on the greens, but I've got a great tee shot, usually I can stay under 90, so I guess that's good enough.

Oh yeah right here. Even though I'm only 16 I've been playing for 4 years. In fact I'm watching the PGA championship right now. I hope Sergio wins but it would be nice if Phil Mickleson finally gets a major under his belt. Peace Out,

I am rooting for Mickelson too. It would be great seeing him finally win a major after all of his close calls.He and David Duval were two of the best players to never win a major and Duval finally won his first a few weekss ago at the British Open. I think it is finally time for Mickelson to get his first.

When you are tired and get a bit lazy your hands will start taking over even more. I have been working through this issue since June of last year. It is REALLY hard to fix, but I do have a few suggestions for you. BTW...these are the drills my instructor gave me, and I do them everytime I am at the range.

1.) Try hitting half shots with your clubs. Start with a wedge and work up to a driver. The goal is to hit the ball dead straight. If it goes left or right your hands are probably breaking down. During this drill pay special attention to hitting the ground AFTER the ball. Try some practice swings concentrating on keeping your right wrist (assuming you are right handed) stable and making sure you are rotating your upper body. THe angle formed at address by the clubhead and the ball must NOT break down until well after impact and it only does because of the body rotation.
