Ball Fitting for 12 year old! Please Help

I am 12 and am fully committed to being better. I shot in the low to mid 50's fro 9 holes last year. (haven't got out in 2011-yet) Please help. By the way, I am interested in the Pro V series. I bought the Tour Is for spin, bt haven't played it yet. However, I am still interested extremely in Titleist.

You should use softer golf balls thats what i do and i shoot high 70's(in 18)

Domenico,

 

It's good to hear that you're commited to becoming a better player. Commitment is key! Titleist is the #1 ball in golf. If you can get the chance, go visit your local Authorized Titleist rep and he/she, will put you through a ball fitting to determine which Titleist ball is best for you! Good luck!

Thanks!

Thanks a ton

Hi Domenico,

By what you said you shot last year, you have about 100 strokes per round of 18. My assumption is most of those strokes are on the green; lots of strokes are putts. My suggestion is to get Pro V1s because of their high spin rate and how well they roll on the green. If you have used Callaway's Tour I(s) in previous rounds, than you will be very impressed with the Pro V1s because of their better distance than Tour I(s). Pro V1s are probably in your best interest.

Hi

I am 13 and I play all the time I shoot in the high 70's on 18 holes. The key is putting. you should always try to improve your putting. As for a Golf ball, I would suggest a pro v1. Because it will spin and it will give you a good amount of distance.

Ok first off how often do you practice and play, secondly, my putting is my best part of my game, it's inconsistency that kills me, today im puring my irons but i cant my 60* for crap ONe day i shoot 48, next day 59.

Hi

I play every day. The most consistent parts of my game are my short game and putting.

Go to the range and just practice your wedges for two hours three times a week for 5 weeks or until you can hit them consistently. I have a friend who is your age and he has the same problem. I shoot 38 at my course (9 holes) all the time.

By the way, what is the name of the golf club you play at?

Practice. Practice. Practice.

 

If you can't hit your 60* very well, go practice with that club until you're comfortable with it. You mentioned that you can putt well, so, if you can dial in your 60*, your short game will be even better, which, equals out to better scores. Take notes after every round. I do, and it helps me a ton. Make yourself a course/yardage, book/map. You're determined to become a better player, and, with lots of practice, you WILL become a better player. I wish you the best.
