    i work in a bar at a hotel/golf club and the local members have been blaggin me to play a few holes with them for weeks now, i've finally caved and agreed so been out in the garden knockin a few balls around today, i've got a fairly mean drive on me and my chipping an putting aint bad but was wondering if anyone who actually knows somethin about golf can give me a few technical pointers? safe in advance

    you drive for show and putt for dough. a very famous golf phrase

    your short game is really important man as most breddas can drive a ball off a tee with a little practice but being able to putt well is what will give you the points.

    i dont know a lot man but im a dab hand at golf as my old man taught me, he plays of a 4 handicap and has taken me to watch the Pros at 'The Open' a few times.

    all the best bro

    play off 9.

    love golf. am a member at two courses. http://www.bridlington-links.co.uk/ & http://www.southcliffgolfclub.com/

    drive for the cameras and put for cash or whatever it is, is true but its still hard to hit the ball straight no-matter what handicap you are.

    heres a great swing thought wayne stevenson told me.... just relax.

    its the most important thing when you hit the ball and is subconciously linked with timing. only tip i have sorry but if your ever this neck of the woods you can play at the links in brid with me anytime for free.

    nice smooth swing, dont try hitting the ball hard as 9/10 youll end up missing it. let the club do the work!

    little tip when i first started, when you tee-off line the name of the ball (name or make) so you can read it nice and evenly and centered on the tee , then focus and read the name whilst you swing, keeps your eye on the ball and keep looking at the ball name the whole way through, this should help in keeping a straight swing
