Well, you gotta start somewhere...

Last Friday I went golfing with my father-in-law, Paul and Brad Hutchins at Cathedral Canyon Golf Club near Palm Springs. I suck. I mean, I REALLY suck. I'm still very new to the game, and learning on the fly as far as how to use certain clubs, etc. Here were our scores

Tom - 102
Brad - 134
Paul - 145
Nick - 158

That's right, a 158. That includes a 19 on a par-5, in which I hit the water FIVE times. I also had two 14's and a 12. I had a pair of double-bogeys on Par-threes and those were my best two.

I think I shot something like 145 my first time out, don't feel bad.

You know what I'd recommend? See if your local course offers a short course at nights, one night a week for like 6-8 weeks. They're often really affordable, and it made a big difference for me. I routinely shoot in the 90s now even without playing as much as I'd like.
