PostSubject: Starting golf... again!   Tue Jul 12, 2011 9:48 pm

Hi !

Just a quick post to intro myself.

Am new in Golf Republic. Find it a great resource to find out about golf - especially from a local perspective. Looks like there are many helpful people here! Very Happy

Anyway, I took up golf about 7 years ago. Got my PC (did not get a handicap...) and played for about 2 years... Was never very good (most times, score about 75 or so - for the first 9 holes! Embarassed ). However, a slip disc caused me to stop such 'vigorous activities'....

So it's been 5 years and now, I am keen to start all over again - thanks to encouragement from my brother (think he's short of kakis worst off than him... tongue).

Have gone down to the range a few times and am currently using the old model Callaway X22... So far, can get about 60-70% of the balls to fly but without much accuracy! Sigh...

Hope to start some lessons soon and get a handicap before the year ends!

Am looking forward to reading all the interesting postings in the forum!
