PostSubject: Newbie lookin4game   Mon Jul 20, 2009 9:38 am

Hi, i'm 22yrs old, Persian, relatively new to the game of golf and love the challenge. Haven't had many formal lessons but I get fairly impressed reactions from most experienced players when they find out that I'm a noob but I've only played courses 3 times (2XBintan and 1XRaffles) so I really wanna start gaining some course experience, there's only so much you can do at driving ranges.

So hope to find some other noobs to share the frustrations with or experienced golf gurus to watch, learn n maybe get some solid critiques from on my game.

Yeah, Persia is what Iran/Iraq used to be before it was taken over and converted to the Islamic nations we now know. Used to be the Persian empire and when the battles with the Islamic forces were ended in our defeat, we were forced to flee or convert so most Persians fleed all over the world. My grt granz moved to India n my dad moved here, Singapore, so this is where i'm based now.

Pardon the possibly boring mini-history lesson there but just thought i'd make sure i clear it all up, not many folk are aware of what exactly Persian means. And just in case it comes off as such, i'd like to emphasize that i hold no animosity against races/religions of any kind, was just stating some broad, basic facts...and now, onto golf...
