Just recently graduated from college and found the game of golf in March of 2012. Came across the forums last year and finally decided to join up.
I look forward to getting to know everyone, and please help me with my golf game!

Here are some great threads to get started and familiar with The Sand Trap
Greetings, I started playing, well, with the idea of actually learning to play, in 2010. Before that it was an excuse to hang out with friends and drink beer once a year. So, my advice might just be the "blind leading the blind". So, take this as informantion from whence it comes - a novice. Nonetheless, I learned the following. Get a lesson or lessons. BUT. I have also learned that eventually, it is your swing. I have found that I have to "understand" what a pro teaches me in a lesson. He may say, I want you to do such and such. If I know why? I find it helps. So, being of technical bent, I also think you must know basic swing fundamentals and "how the body works" to make a good swing. Translation - read about the swing. Occassionally, I find that my swing is good (i.e.the ball flight is what I want) without thinking about it - that is fun.
Hey there and welcome to the game and the forum! Just joined this month based on several great references so I figured I should check it out. So far I like all the different categories of discussion and there is a ton of valuable information on this site for someone just getting to know the game. If you have any particular questions, feel free to shoot them across to this long-time heavily trained golfer!
