I've been reading this forum for around a month now and have found some useful stuff which has really helped me. I first hit a Golf Ball on the 20th December while on holiday in Dubai and since then I've been hooked, I'm completely new to Golf and couldn't even tell you anything about the rules or players etc. so please bear with my ignorance.
As I said, I've only started recently and I'm still a little unsure as to what the hell I'm doing but all I know is I sure love hearing that sound and seeing that ball soar when I hit it right and that's what I want to see more often! I've always been fairly sporty and pretty quick to pick up new talents and skills however I'm preparing myself for a long slog of at least 12 months before I get anywhere near respectable.
At the moment I've got myself a set of Callaway Diablo Irons and I'm trying to get to a fairly good standard with them before I start to touch anything else, although it is very difficult to resist the lure of the Drivers but I guess that's a Macho thing! I'm currently hitting a 6 iron around 160 yards when I connect truly however that is perhaps one in 5 shots, with 2 out of 5 hitting around the 140-150 mark and then the last 2 disappearing or rolling into no mans land!
Anyway I'm sure that's enough for now and I look forward to gleaming as much instruction from you guys as possible
