In the last year I have lost 160 pounds and I feel like I am ready to hit this game head on. I have only played 3-4 rounds a year but just joined a golf league at our church that is welcoming to beginners. I will be playing nine holes with them and will be getting another 9-18 holes in on the weekend.
For equipment, I just bought a used set of the original(2008?) Titleist AP1 irons and Dick's sporting goods had the Taylormade RBZ bonded driver on sale for $100 so I picked one of those up. I will be taking the irons in to be fitted and most likely extended today.
My biggest tool is joining this site to help with round management. This is embarrassing, but my approach has been to just take the longest club I have available from where the ball is. I have spent the last couple days on here reading about how you guys approach the course and I caught myself laughing at myself multiple times.
I will try to have a video of my swing on here in the next week and I am guessing that will be entertainingly sad for most of you.
Over the next couple of weeks I will keep my mouth shut on here for the most part but try to absorb as much as possible without bombarding the brain. Thanks all for letting me be part of this forum.
