Expect to make mistakes

In golf, for the amateur starting out, the one thing you should expect on your first attempts at the golf course is to make mistakes. And indeed, generally.

There's no two ways about it. Even if you attempt the course only after having some introductory lessons (as you should) and a good practise on the driving range - you will still make mistakes. It's a part of the game.

Even the best players make mistakes, albeit far fewer. On the professional circuit, the tee to fairway average is still only around the 70-80% mark. Once you recognise this, you should find your first few rounds somewhat better. If you can't accept that, then maybe Golf is not so much the game for you. Good luck!

Welcome to Amateur Golfer

Greetings, and welcome to Amateur Golfer. A golf blog written by an amateur golfer for amateur golfers.

This blog will cover all aspects of the game and should, I hope, make a good read. As stated, I am not a professional but play for the mere fun. Like yourself I should guess. This will not so much provide coverage of the professional game, but will relate more to amateur players.

The golf season is beginning so now is a good time to tee off, so to speak.
