Nice to get off direct PCa comments for a while so here’s my golfing tips from a 14 handicap average golfer.
Use a 2nd had set or the cheapest “game improver” clubs that you can get ur hands on to start, because I assure you that if you get into golf in 6–9 months time you’ll definetly want to change them for the latest craze!!
Also get lessons from a club pro, as this is the only way to learn the game properly, as once you start with bad habits they’ll stick with you forever.
Don’t forget that once you join a golf club you’ll be expected to put in 3 cards, (usually with the club pro, or a committee member), to get a handicap, which for men and ladies at the moment is 54! Which basically gives you 3 extra shots per hole, eg. If it’s a par 4 hole you can take 7 shots and still be credited with a par score for that hole. I won’t go into the various formats of the game at the moment, eg. Medal, stableford, Texas scramble etc etc. As you’ll soon get to grips with them as/when required.
Please note that the aim of Golf is to reduce your handicap to your true playing ability asap. Therefore don’t dwell on 54 unless you really need it or you ll soon be categorised as a “bandit”, and will forever be the butt of Mexican jokes from players such as me!!
All the best
