So you’ve seen Tiger elegantly making that last hole down the course and from
that scene you realize one thing: you want to learn how to play this game.
However, you have one tiny problem. You have never picked up a golf club before and you have never played a game of golf your entire life. And with so many things to learn about golf from equipment to handicap and motion, where do you begin?
The quickest and most effective way of playing golf – or any game at all for that matter – is through study and practice. Not only will you get theoretical knowledge of what to do and how to do it, but you get an opportunity to put that knowledge to the test out there on the field…err, course.
For beginners, the goal is to develop the skills and techniques necessary to get on the game. But once you have been on the course for quite some time, your goals change. You have all the skills you need. Now, what you are going to require is judgment. And that, my friend, is something you can only get from experience.
