Thanks for your input, Cindy! I really like the idea of finding a good practice partner. I'm captaining my league team this fall, so maybe one of the guys will be interested.
Also, I agree that taking more lessons (and not just taking an occasional one like I've done) is a good idea. Semi-private lessons is something I hadn't thought about, though. Thanks!
I haven't tried drop-feeding. I'll give that a go.
Thanks again, and I hope you move to 4.0 at year-end!
