From you, of course. . .

 

Without you, he would not even be golfing. ;-)

Count me in... I know i'm late to the party, but previously everyone of my friends I've talked to were "cold" prospects, scoffers, if you will. Recently I've been engaging a close friend of mine and got him interested.

 

Monday, we went to the golfsmith store, looked at some clubs. Went to a driving range, I worked with him on a few basics, head still, weight shift, grip. He did real well, used a pitching wedge the entire time. Hit down on the ball, has a lot of potential. 

 

Today we're going to pick up a small set of clubs and probably hit the range again. He's already talking about going to a par 3 course and getting acquainted with that.

Already know the person, I will create a golfer in 2014!

post #184 of 204

Do we post progress update here?

 

If so, my intended target has got his clubs, took lessons (he wanted to take lessons before doing anything else related to golf) and we started going to the driving range sometimes. So level 2 achieved I guess!

 

Two things left in my opinion to make him a golfer.

- Go play a 9 hole best-ball with him (so he won't take 100 strokes to complete a 9 hole course)

- Go play a 9 hole course where he plays his own ball

 

He's the kind of perfectionnist, he wants to be able to make constant good contacts on the driving range before he agrees to a best ball 9 holes, so I hope I'll be able to make him play his own ball before the course closes for winter (usually october over here).

Haven't had much luck with my created golfer. He bought clubs and went out twice...but doesn't seem that interested.

 

I have however been able to get some co-workers who haven't golfed in a long time to go out a couple times this summer.

I know that it doesn't count because it is my kid, but here is my new golfer. Working on ground forces, and then extension.

Yes, Johnny and Brandel would say she has no future in the game with that swing.

Really?

 

Cuz I'd say she has no future in the game with her father. :-O

 

Ba-dump-bump… Just teasing of course. She's WAY ahead of the game. :-D

I hereby pledge to create another golfer, (My son and I introduced one of his fellow employees to the game and I gave him my used set of Taylormade Burners along with a Cleveland Monster driver, a couple of cleveland hybrids and a Taylormade Nubbins putter).

 

God Bless!!! Ray

So, in the golf outing I did earlier this year I got two of my co-workers who have never played to come out and play.  I even took them to the range beforehand.

 

Does that count?

post #192 of 204

There is one friend I have that (because we both work in a community that has a golf course) plays a round with me once every year, and I am trying to get him to join the golf team, and I made this like packet to explain everything about golf.  SO, I'm in.

Working on a difficult victim now. The lady in question went with me to Florida two years ago and she did not have any golfing-experience. It was like taking a novice skier to a double diamond downhill track. Made a big mistake there. She agreed to play a nine holes par 3 course with me yesterday and we had a lot of fun.

I need a playing partner and commit to creating one in 2014. I think I already have a target picked.

How about this one? :beer:

 

post #196 of 204

I just started to get to know people a bit better at my new job in a new city I moved to. I've got no golfing buddies and have either golfed by myself or with my father-in-law. He doesn't golf very often and likes taking a cart, I like to walk, not that that is stopping me from golfing with him. I would like to get a regular group of golfers from work to golf with, both established and new to the game. I hope to get 1-3 new golfers from work. I even bought my wife clubs. She only likes golfing nine holes and doesn't keep score or even care how she does. Its more of just a thing to do once in a while. but at least she comes out from time to time...I chalk that up to the bonus rounds I get to play lol

Looks like my pick has taken the bait. Had him at the range last night and he wants to come out to an executive course nearby.

My brother-in-law was challenged to play golf by a friend of his, so he's been practicising on the weekends. I can't take credit for "creating" him, but I did give him a dozen new balls and a big bag of wiffle practice balls and a bunch of tees, so that helped him get going. So maybe another new golfer is on the way.
