    Cool Newish Golfer from South GA

    Hey guys and gals,


    Started playing golf again at the old age of 34


    I played briefly in my teens, but that was mostly because I worked at a golf course and it was free. I also took it way too seriously back then and got so flustered that it wasn't fun at all.


    Fast forward to now, I have decided to give it another go, but with a whole new attitude. Been to the range a few times, and played a round of 9 Saturday morning, and have a long way to go. This time though, I refuse to get mad or angry, as this should be fun. At any point, if it is no longer fun I will have to reevaluate the game.


    Saturday I shot a 60 on the front 9 of my local golf course. So needless to say I am horribly bad right now. But the main thing is, I had a blast with the group I played with, and I think that is the take away.


    Look forward to getting a little better and making friendships!
