It's not that you care about golf, it's that you want everyone else to feel the same as you do.  You can't stand it if someone wants to play just for fun. People with attitudes like yours are what suck the fun out of it for the rest of us.  And I take back my apology.  I only wrote it to try and soothe some hurt feelings because some people seem to lack basic reading comprehension.  Maybe I will take your advice this time and see if I can find a place without such an...
I apologize for being so defensive.  I was a little tired and grumpy last night.  I guess I shouldn't have put the as a beginner part in.  I only did that because I wanted to get recommendations on what a good club for a beginner would be, not what would be good for an experienced golfer.  I tried to word my question so that I could narrow down the answers and not waste anyone's time.   There is a big difference between the way I play and the way a serious golfer...
What advice was that again?  To get rid of clubs that I clearly stated I didn't want to?  To make sure that everybody understands exactly what my question is?  The fact is, I thanked people for their input and never said anything to those that gave me more than I wanted.  The only reason I responded to Sean is that I agreed with him about the reason I gave for keeping the chipper not being a very sound one, so I clarified.    And why SHOULD I get rid of my chipper? ...
I have no idea what I did to set you off, unless it was something I said in another thread.  Just about everyone else seemed to understand what I was asking and I got some very good advice.  Your advice was good too, it just didn't happen to be what I was looking for at the time.  Next time I will try to anticipate how you want me to word my questions.  
I appreciated the advice.  The more info you give the more I learn.  You just missed a bit of my question. The full question was:     I know I'm not doing things the way they should be done to best improve my game.  That's why I tried to word my post so that it wouldn't be another general question on what clubs I should have.  I don't have a handicap or compete for money so I can afford to be a little goofy with my club choices.
I wasn't being completely honest.  I also keep the chipper because I actually enjoy using it.  I  didn't mention that part because I didn't want this to turn into a big discussion about how if I learn to use the other clubs properly they can do everything a chipper can.  If I ever get more serious I will consider leaving it at home but for now it is a fun club and I use it a lot more than say, my 6 iron.  I use it whenever I am within about 10 feet of the green.  That's...
You could make something up in Excel and print it on heavy stock paper.  That way you could have everything you want on it and easily change it later to add more or get rid of what you don't like.   That Scorecard software does look pretty nice though.  Looks like it would be a lot easier than carrying a little book around.
Lesson one Domenic:  You don't need to use that kind of language towards someone just because you disagree with what they say.  If you want to earn respect on here you need to learn not to get angry.  You would be surprised how much support you would get if you posted in a polite manner.  
That's the nice thing about this forum.  People don't get banned just for being young and ignorant, or in my case old and ignorant.  He is only 12 or 13 so we give him a break.  Remember how excited you were when you got the golfing bug?  Now picture yourself as a teenager with the same excitement.  Who knows, in 10 years he might be a forum leader on here, if he has time between PGA tour events.
Seems like a lot of people have trouble with hybrids.  I am one of them.  Yet I see a lot of people and manufacturers recommend them because they are supposed to be easier to hit than irons.  I gave up on mine before I joined this forum and learned about things like hands forward and hitting down on the ball.  I was always trying to hit them like a driver and don't think I ever hit a good shot with one. Now it is too late.  I have been scared away from them and won't...
