None of your catagories apply to me. Before retireing, I walked 2 miles briskly every day. At the time I didn't have time for my second love, golf (first being my wife). After retireing,I quit walking and got myself out on the practice tee and re-built my swing. I have played golf every day since. I know some will say golf isn't exercise but to me it is. I walk, twist, turn, stoop and jump up and down and cuss for 4 hours every day and that's enough for an old dude. BTW, I am now Senior Club Champion for year 1999 (scratch division) at my club and expect to continue to be for several years to come. Have a great day. Saml.

Did you do this on your own ? If so, what instruction book/manual did you use ? If not, how did you find a Golf instructor capable enough to work with you, and how much did it cost ?

buy2win---- I have never had a lesson from a pro in my life. I have been a student of the game and started playing at age 9. I know more about my own swing than any pro and I know how to fix it when the wheels come off, as they eventually do for everyone. For most of my life, I have been a single digit handicaper, but for the last 10 years prior to retirement had to give up the game due to business obligations, thus the re-building swing thing. Was a good thing though, because I had to go from a younger type swing to an older type. Pros always make things too compilcated, I like doing my own thing. Have a great day. Saml. ( I know this is not for this board, just answering the question).
