I started playing golf when I was 23 years old. I was in college and had no money to speak of. The uninitiated would think that would hinder you from playing golf- not so.
I’ve always said golf can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be.
You can get fantastic second-hand clubs online on sites like Ebay, or any number of online retailers like globalgolf.com and callawaygolfpreowned.com. You can walk many courses at very reasonable rates, and get good exercise to boot.
I’ve spent most of my golfing life at about a 10 or so handicap. I don’t think my hand-eye coordination is the best but I’ve got good tempo and have worked out my entire life and kept myself flexible.
At my best, I was between a 5 and six handicap a few years ago- which I owe directly to one of the products I’ll be reviewing right here in these pages. (Hint: I got very good from 40 yards and in) That melted away pretty quick after my daughter was born.
On a couple of occasions, I’ve taken lessons from some pretty good pros. They don’t seem to stick for very long.
Now, I’m on a mission to realize my potential as a golfer and person. So let’s see how close I can get to scratch.
