I did actually spend some time on this last year. I did get frustrated. Will work more on it this year! 8 months ago

I played a scramble during a departmental team-building outing. It was an absolute blast, and then my boyfriend convinced me to get my own clubs, and we’ve been playing a bit or hitting some balls at the range. It’s quite fun! I’m still terrible though, and would probably benefit from a lesson or three! 12 months ago
I tried to learn to golf last summer, but my schedule didn’t allow me to do it. I hope I can do it in this spring and summer. 17 months ago
On the golfing trip I was just on, we had 2 days of golf lessons.
Day 1, we worked on ‘grip, aim, setup’ and our drives. Driving is hard! especially because I didn’t have gloves, and my left arm hurt so bad after a couple of hours of gripping a club. I drove with a 7 iron.
Day 2, we did some putting. Putting was much more fun. It’s a lot more gentle and just mind work. I find I put with too much strength. So what I did to make my put softer was to say in my head ’ gently, gently’ at the moment of hitting the ball. My puts were definitely more gentle then. I think it’s psychological.
I’ve put some money into the game: I’ve invested in a golf glove.
I need to find a driving range that works for me and do this weekly or possibly more frequently – like, after work; I’ve seen a couple of driving ranges on the route back. 21 months ago
I’m not very keen on golf but my company’s big on golfing so I’ll take this as a great opportunity to learn!
I tried golfing once, at the driving range, but I couldn’t even hit the ball! :o
I never went back, but now…
We’re going on a trip next week and golfing is the main event. There’ll be lessons for beginners too, I hear, so I’ve signed up, and will approach this stately sport with renewed vigour and optimism. 21 months ago
