If you are planning on playing competitions, my advice is to learn and play by the exact rules to the best of your ability right from the start. Do not fall into the mindset that some have that it is more "fun" to modify the rules to do whatever. Rest assured, all of the "reasons" they tell you for ignoring some rules are just rationalizations whose purpose, at heart, it to allows them to write down a lower score than they earned.
If you post a My Swing video here you will get feedback from some of the best instructors in the country. There is tons of great info on this site. But be careful about getting paralyzed by listening to too many voices.
Good luck, it is good to have more women in the game.
