A lot of people hesitate to start playing golf for many reasons. They think it's time-consuming, difficult to learn, and boring. They may also believe that they are starting “too late in the game, but this is not true. You can learn to play golf at any age, and it's not as difficult as some people may seem.
The main reason golf can be difficult to learn is because it is rarely taught correctly. In general, it is taught from the point of view that people naturally want to be able to be very good golfers, so they are taught the perfect grip, posture and alignment of golf and shown how to swing the club “correctly”. Once you get bitten by the golf bug, like me, you'll most likely want to learn everything you can about the game. Whether you want to learn golf for social play, for business, to keep fit, for leisure, or to compete in competitions, it's never too late to start.
