Well Mick, I would have felt really comfortable giving tips on golf until now. I was out the other night and was atrocious........lol

As Mark Twain once said "Golf is a good walk spoiled"

Setanta golf has some excellent programs for tips! One being, when your having some putting practice, aim for a tee stuck in the ground. Then when you go out on the course, when putting, pick a mark inside the cup and aim for it thinking of the tee :)

If it were only that simple though ;)

Never try to hit the ball too hard. Hit the ball with the power from your hips and not your arms or shoulder.

Try and keep your heads movement to a minimum.

Get some lessons m8 and practice practice practice.

There's a lot to learn to start off with and will take a little while to fall into place but keep at it and if you catch the bug you've got a sport for life.

A couple of things to start off with are get your grip sorted first and a nice slow back swing also keep your eye on the ball, imagine theres 5p under the ball and don't move your head until you can see it, dont look to where you've hit it even before you've hit the ball, a common beginners mistake.

Goodluck!

Been to Rat's, have rash to prove it ;)
Never lick your balls as the grounds keeper may of sprayed weed killer ;)

See you thought I was being funny didn't you.

Also slow everything down till your hitting the ball nice and straight, imagine tram lines your feet on one and the arc of your swing force to follow the other.

Oh keep your head down, count to 2 after hitting the ball before lifting it up.

I downloaded a good instruction video "Butch Harmon Ultimate Golf" from the usual sources.
But I recommend a lesson or two before you pick up bad habits that are very hard to correct.
Cheers
