If you only have 30-60 minutes how you gonna play a full round of golf that takes around 4-5 hours lol.
Its gonna take you quite a while to get decent if you don't put the time and effort in early on. I started 5 months ago and for the first 2 months I went driving range every mon-fri even if it was only 50 balls. Weekend I would practice on the field just on short game. Even in the house when you have a few minutes just practice chipping, putting and just drills to help out. My first score for a full 18 was 112. Its now 85 thats because I put the time and dedication in.
I do think you can get good by youtube though. I had 3 lessons and after that I just watched videos and there is so many out there to cure the things you are doing wrong. Good luck anyway.
Apologies for going off topic lol Its easy to get side tracked when I talk about golf.
