...accept it, is to find Golf Lessons videos that are free or inexpensive, and downloadable to the iPhone.

After being a wildlife officer for thirty years, hunting and fishing all my life, I find myself retired with a part-time job at American Airlines. Everyone's playing golf, so I join them and I love it. I suck at it, but want to improve, so any videos that cover the fundamentals, drills, tips, lessons, etc. would be great.

Sorry to go so off topic, but golf is like an addition.

I don't think this mission is entirely impossible...

Look up video sports podcasts in iTunes. There's one I subscribe to call "Podcast Golf Lessons with Sven Ljungholm III". It's filmed in HD and everything. Darn that the iPhone isn't HD. He's a PGA instructor too!

P.S. I checked your website out...back when I was a teenager my dad worked as an ASA station agent in Chattanooga.

I would invest in some lessons if your just starting...the best thing is to have a good swing and grip...if you have that you can improve on the rest later...sorry for the OT reply

I concur...

Get some clubs and go to your closest course and get a lesson or 2 from their pro. It won't set you back too far, and you'll learn something in a far better fashion than trying to learn in a magazine.

Or you can do what I do and go to the driving range and park next to an instructor doing a lesson and listen in. Free!

I just got 3 golf lessons with my dad from a pro. It helped out a lot, even though I still suck, I don't suck nearly as bad as I did! Would definitely recommend it.

What do you do at American Airlines? I'm getting out of the military in less than a year and plan to try to land a job at a civilian airline in the maintenance field. I just don't know how their maintenance differs from ours and how to even go about trying to get a job on the outside.
