    Grip: the V formed by your thumb and index fingers of both hands should be down the center of the shaft.

    Proper distance from the ball: with the club in your left hand (if you are right handed, reverse for lefties) head of club on ground, arm straight = proper distance from ball.

    Technique: Left arm straight (for righties) - do not break (bend) your elbow while swinging.

    Best way to learn to play is to learn chipping and putting first. Don't worry about using woods and hitting far until you can consistantly hit straight chip shots (pitching wedge, 9 iron)

    YOU DON'T HAVE TO SWING LIKE A GORILLA! Using 9 iron will help hone your swing and tempo. Once you get the stroke down remember the feeling, you should swing every club in your bag the way you swing the 9 iron.

    come to Myrtle Beach, SC and play golf with me! There are only 100 + courses here to choose from.

    good luck -- don't give up. Remember, leave hitting long far shots alone until you master the short game.

    The easiest way to learn golf like a pro is by following "The Simple Golf Swing" program. It's primarily a 31 page eBook that teaches golfers how to make solid contact with the ball, how to avoid hitting fat, how to avoid slicing, how get more power, accuracy, and consistency in your swing. Consistency being the number 1 golf skill.

    You not only get the eBook though, you also receive a ton of extra material including video, lessons on putting, driving, chipping, sand play etc. Here is their official site: http://www.golfswingguru.net

    Practice some swings with your eyes closed (be sure no one is close by that might get hit). Feel the weight of the clubhead. Learn to sense where it is in the swing. That really helped my golf swing.

    Practice, practice, practice. It's a tough game to get good at, so you need lessons and school is the cheapest place to get that. Hang in there.

    You'll be glad you did, when you have the time to play golf over the years.

    get a book about golf instruction. I recommend "The Only Golf Lesson Youll Ever Need" by Hank Haney (he teaches Tiger Woods)
