I just started getting into golf. It is so damn hard. What tips can you give me about getting started that you wished you had when you started?

most people come over the top of the ball when they start.. try to get a feel for swinging around your body instead of across as soon as you can..

and the best and quickest way to drop strokes is working on your short game

Buy a pack of 5 lessons off the bat.

One of the hardest things to do is UNFUCK a bad swing that you practiced like hell at.

I already learned a couple of these. Swining hard didn't work out. I hit on top off the ball a bunch on the driving range.


I'll get the ben Hogan book.

Chipping is also hard as bitch!

 Hmmmm....I'll just go with an oldie:

Q:  How do you get to Augusta National?

A:  Practice, practice, practice.

Don't expect to get good at golf without putting alot of time in.
