I've been reading the forums on this site for the past several weeks. As a beginning golfer, the information has been invaluable. IMO with my limited knowledge of golf, this seems to be the best site out there for a beginner like myself. Me and my wife just took our first lesson last Friday and went to the range this week to practice. Before Friday, neither of us have had any experience with golf, other than perhaps visiting the range a few times as a kid. We really look forward to getting into the swing of things so to speak. It's something that we can enjoy as a hobby together, get outdoors, and eventually, play with friends and family. A little about ourselves We are around 30 years old, give or take a year for each of us. We both played sports as kids, and I played through college. We are looking forward to our new hobby, and our goal is to take a lesson a week (1 hour shared with by both of us), then spend 1 or 2 days at the driving range each week to work on what we learned. Right before we started, we picked out beginner club sets for each of us. They were both very reasonably priced, and after reading on forums, both seemed to be a good place for us to start. I am 6'6", so I got all my clubs extended by 1.5". The golf stores said I probably needed 2", but they recommended I not extend past 1.5". We both stay pretty fit. On days we are not practicing golf, we will likely be at the gym. We are close to Riverchase, so that's where we plan to take our lessons now and practice at the range. The staff has been nice to us, and the patrons seem friendly. Anyways, I have enjoyed this site, and thought it was time I registered.
