Hi everyone! New from Oregon

8 posts in this topic

Hello new friends!

I'm quite new to golf.  Started last year, only had time for a few games and a few tries at the driving range, and winter hit and work got busy.  My bosses husband and my boyfriend are avid golfers, and I've always admired the game, so I'm trying.  I would like to focus on paying more technically correct and hopefully my scores will eventually catch up.

I'm a horrid golfer, but I still have an awesome time, regardless.

I bought an old and nasty set of women's clubs from a co-worker's mother (who was a former semi-pro so they were decent clubs at some point in time), and I just do my best and listen to everyone's instruction.

Newbie question...

Golf shoes.  Why?

I currently golf in comfortable, practical athletic shoes.  I'm curious as to difference/advantage, etc.

My goal is to learn all the intricacies and nuances of the game, so I'm happy to hear everything everyone has to share.

Since you're new to the game I don't think it's all that important to have golf shoes unless you feel weird wearing athletic shoes and want to look more like a "serious" golfer.

When you do decide to get some golf shoes, these are pretty good

Thanks so much for the warm welcomes and replies!  I'm enjoying this site.

Just got back from the driving range. I'm getting pretty consistent with hitting 100 yards, and less slicing to the left.  I find that if I set up my swing, double check my grip (more finger, less "hand"), relax, backswing, relax AGAIN...I NAIL it right down the center.  So nice to FINALLY be consistent.  Now if I could just afford better clubs (I have an OLD set...hand-me-down).  My boss's husband is a local "pro" (so to speak) and consistently wins all the local tournaments...says "your grips suck".  Haha...how about a raise and I will buy new clubs!

So, I did find a women's TaylorMade driver on eBay for $5.  So I start there and see what works and what doesn't.

Anyone have a cheap (but nice) set of women's clubs they want to sell me??? :-)

I did splurge and by myself an inexpensive should bag....LOVE it.  Exactly what I needed to make the decent "hike" to my local driving range.

Golf can certainly get somewhat expensive. You can actually have your grips changed and it's relatively inexpensive. Perhaps you could post a pic of your clubs and the peeps here can steer you in the right direction to see if it would be worth it. my thought would be to get your swing working good and then upgrade your clubs.

Sorry. No women's clubs here. I would like to find some for my wife, but she's not really interested. :-)
