Yea, but not in a while, and I would want to get lessons so I don't form any bad habits
The smart thing to do is not EVEN begin to start playing this game. Its way too expensive and the only thing you really get out of it is stress and frustration. Spend 4 + hours doing something constructive like wood crafts make some wooden toys or something.....
The beginners clubs your about to purchase will be the number one reason that you will suck at. They will either be too long or too short for you, thus leading to the reason why you dont hit the ball straight EVER.
Sounds like you've had a bad experience
