This is a blog about learning to play golf as an adult with no previous experience (unless you count two weeks of junior high sports camp).

I started taking lessons in May 2008 at GolfTec in Edina, Minnesota (www.golftec.com). This is one of those cool set-ups where they hook you up to motion sensors and cameras and show you exactly what you’re doing wrong by putting your swing next to Stuart Appleby’s. Believe me, it’s been pretty illuminating, if not depressing, so far.

I played my first 18 holes at a work tournament in June — good thing it was best ball. Since then, I’ve been going to lessons every two weeks or so and playing 9-18 holes every couple of weeks. I suffered a three week setback when I sliced open my left middle finger on a broken glass and had to get 8 stitches. That has healed pretty well and I’m back in action, but still working on being able to bend my finger properly.

In this blog, I plan to chart the progress of my game, the bumps along the way, and all the fun places golf takes me. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

    I would like to learn to play golf, but have too many other hobbies to take the time to do it. Love, Mom

    I really love your blog. Why have you not posted since last fall? It’s nice hearing the experiences of a rookie, as I am just learning too.
