I've decided to take up golf, primarily because I need more exercise in my life and walking around with a bag of clubs on my back seems like pretty
good exercise, plus some fun to boot.
I have only played golf twice and neither experience was good, but there were good reasons for that and this time, I intend to go about it more
I'm moving incrementally toward this goal, as I am not rich and can't afford to buy a set of Calloway's, some fancy duds, and hit the links in high
Last night I bought 144 shag balls, because there's no use wasting good balls by losing them in the woods or the water traps.
Today, I went to a golf specialty shop and told the salesman that I wanted a set of clubs suitable for beginners, but that I wasn't interested in
wasting my money on junk.
I decided on a box set of Golden Bear
clubs that has every club I need, including a sand wedge, for about
$300. I did some putting in the store with the putter and I like it a lot.
I asked the salesman if he had any plaid knickers, argyle sweaters, and perhaps some Tam o' Shanters to wear to the links, but he said they were out
of stock, so I guess the fashion aspect will have to wait.
Anyone have any advice for a beginning golfer and maybe a critique of my choice in gear?
Oh, yes, I do intend to take golfing lessons before I hit the links.
