Speaking of ball mark repairs.  This is my first year of golf where I'm taking lessons and actually studying the game.  I'm hitting the green now from 100 yards out and closer so I actually have ball marks to repair ;)     I find it fun repairing ball marks.
I follow the rules when it comes to attire, repairing divots etc etc.  I want to treat the golf course and the facilities with the utmost respect.  Neither myself nor my friends are scratch golfers.  So if my buddy hits his ball onto the cart path or in mud, for God's sake take it out and place it where you can get a decent shot....I'm not a stickler at all for that stuff.
  Same situation for me.  I usually play with my best friend who's only ever had one lesson.  So if there's nobody behind us I'll help him out with his swing or advise him on what club to use.  I don't do it all the time though, just when I think he needs help.  If I'm playing with someone I don't know well then I wouldn't offer advise unless I'm asked.
Have any of you guys been tempted to buy the Taylor Made r11s driver or is that too "gimmicky"?
Well....just in the last couple days I bought a Callaway Diablo Octane driver, Diablo edge irons, a new Callaway bag and some balls.  My son is starting to learn how to play so I figured I should give him my Nike clubs and get new clubs for myself.   Yeah that's it.
I like Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy.
1.  Get par twice in one day. 2.  Get consistent with my 3 wood off the deck. 3.  Focus on getting to the green in regulation 4.  Work on short game!
    I agree 100%.  I was crushing the ball with my driver, 3 wood and hybrid all day yesterday but when I got close enough for the sandwedge and putter....I tanked bad.   I need to spend more time chipping and putting.  If I spend more time on the close game, I'm going to shave off quite a few strokes.
I am a beginner myself.  I took 4 lessons so far and I plan on going to a golf clinic later this month.  The lessons have REALLY paid off, along with going to the driving range about 3 or 4 times a week at least.  I played a round yesterday and played the best game of my life.  Learn the fundamentals and practice practice practice. 
I don't really keep score yet because up until now there's just been too many triple bogeys and lost balls etc.  After 4 lessons with a PGA and a couple dozen visits to the driving range this year I'm getting to where I don't lose the ball much at all and a legitimate bogey is very common for me.     When I get to where I'm making par "here and there" then I'll start keeping track.
