    Good websites showing golf swing form?

    My new job reqires me to get more serious about golf. I've just been a 1-2 times a year player, although I take my kids to a family-oriented driving range probably once a week or so in the summer.

    Hello all! I (somewhat unfortunately I suppose) only have 15 1/2 feet of depth for a HT-only room I'm about to build in my basement. I can pretty much make it any width up to 15 feet. Basically, I have a square to work with, but I know that a square isn't the best shape. I'm thinking about...

    Starter golf clubs

    Okay, it's time to take up golf. Not as an obsession, just something that I'm invited to do by friends/collegues/family often enough that I need to have a set of clubs rather than borrowing/renting. I'll probably only play 10-15 times a year, so there isn't any reason to spend a fortune. Plus...
