Hi guys.

My name is Chris. I am relatively new to the sport. I have been playing sporadically throughout the Spinrg/Summer for the past 3 years. I am tired of being absolutely awful. Decided that this Spring I will take it more seriously (and be less dreadful). Good or no good, still love being out on the course with the old man or friends.

I look forward to being a member of the community.

Sincerely:

Chris

Hi @chris15

Welcome to The Sand Trap. A lot of us came here in the same situation as you and we have all gotten better from the great advice and help on this forum.

I'd suggest looking through this thread for drills and tips that can help you right away:

And these threads will pay immediate dividends:

And here are the two threads that did the most for me getting started:

Once you've gotten a handle on all that information, you should consider starting a My Swing thread. Once you're ready to start a My Swing thread, be sure to read the rules at the top of the sub-forum before creating the thread.

Have fun and good luck!

Welcome, about how often do you play? I've been getting out a lot this year once the snow melted and it's helped me get more comfortable out there. My course offered a cheap membership where I could play unlimited afternoon golf and unlimited range, so I grabbed it. If you're planning on playing more than 20 rounds this year, often it's worth checking if your courses offer it because you'll save money and play more golf if you can get out a lot. Practice especially gets expensive, at 5$ a bucket I paid for a 300$ unlimited key and it paid for itself the first month. You should also see what the lesson rates are, generally they offer packages. And of course, use the resources on here because they can help a lot.

In years past, I have played very inconsistently. This year, I would like to try and get out once a week.

That will help.

This year I got my average rounds up from 1.25 to 2 a week - the best and most fun way to improve.
