I was a complete - golf was a good walk spoilt/for daft jumper wearing wankers etc etc.
took it up two years ago (I'm 49 now) and it is an unbelievably great game.
If anybody could recreate a video game that could get anywhere near the difficulty of golf they would make millions.
Don't worry about holding people up. Everybody started somewhere and your father in law will keep you right.
take a few lessons early on (it pays off big time getting the right stance etc)
just have a go. i am now looking forward to my retirement, hitting a small ball with a stick across a field.
Just do it mate.
