KT, there are many thing that we can talk about. There are also some things that need lessons and no amount of free advice will help. besides a lot of the "advice" given here is just opinion. I think it's important to know when to discuss and when to guide someone to a knowledgable teacher. saves them a lot of frustration and heartache.
developing range is one of those endeavors that requires good guidance that is modeled and monitored.
