    It's the best forum I've found. But then, I've only tried one.

    Have you managed to get out for a ‘few holes’ lately?

    Played anywhere nice?

    Hi, I coach, but If I play, it's never a few holes, but instead 18 or 36, I can't play 'just for fun' either. How about you?

    Hello, I'm English too, but not sporty in any way. It wasn't for want of trying, but my co-ordination, more when I was younger than now, was up the creek. I can swim and cycle (but not uphill for very long!) and enjoy walking, but otherwise, am pretty sedentary.

    Hi, there's more to life than sport anyway, but exercise is beneficial to the body. walking is enough and there are simple floor exercises that can be done..air squats, push ups, sit ups, or get a couple of dumb bells and do basic exercises with them, cycling is really fun isn't it? Except for the darn cars.

    I no longer play, can’t afford club membership and enthusiasm has dwindled to just watching The Open.
    Haven’t picked up my clubs in a long time.

    I had a golf pro trying to work with me at one time.

    I say trying,
    I probably was, very. :)

    He tried his best to understand what I was barely articulate enough to ask.


    Do you have a favourite U.K course?

    Hi Gracey,
    why not go to a range and hit some balls again, see if the enthusiasm comes back, and golf memberships are cheap these days, but does depend where you feel most comfortable.

    Sorry to hear that your pro didn't understand u, he clearly wasn't the right one for you. I had two sessions with a world famous golf coach, and he assumed I wasn't trying, he got that 1000% wrong. I didn't bother with him anymore especially after he told people I didn't turn up to a lesson, when in fact I had cancelled the day before with his assistant, the assistant didn't pass on the info. This coach is now on tv a lot..never mind.

    We are just not understood by any golf coach, but doesn't that point at their failings to understand the pupil?

    I do have one favourite...St Andrews Old Course, have you been there? What is your favourite course?
