I started around 3 years old just chipping around our lawn.  Started taking it serious when I was about 8.  Never took a lesson until I was 18.

Played since I was around 7 every summer while watching my brother play on the High School team. So, I just wanted to play on the High School team, which I'm on my 3rd year of now.

I didn't really start taking it seriously until freshman year. I was too young to really understand the game when I was younger.

I started when I was 11 and I just finished up my 3rd season at 13. And I am obsessed with the game. I can't get enough. I used to think it was boring but then all of a sudden it changed at 11 and I went crazy.

I'm surprised how many people have pretty much the same background stories. As a lot of you have, i started golfing when i was little. It was mainly learning my basics like etiquette and rules. Since starting on the hs team i learned what golf competition is really about and love it!! it's one thing golfing for yourself but when everything starts to count, that's when you play your best and drive to get better!

I started when I was about 10 hitting balls around the soccer fields by my house. I didn't really take the game seriously until last year when I was 14 and just finished my freshman year playing jv on the golf team.

I started when I was round 11 just chipping balls around the yard, I played my first round of golf when I was twelve (only one round that year), and I started out when I was thirteen playing in tournaments, my second round ever was a tournament, I shot 51 from the senior tee's (9 holes), and my love just grew from there.

I went from a 17 handicap at the beginning of 2004, all the way to a 4 now. I'm just addicted.

taking it seriously at the break of my 15th birthday or maybe about 2 months before when the season started. Started at the age of 14. No Pro Lessons already shooting a +13 handicap after 6 months of play. Picked up the Tee-off driving simulator for 89.99. Now I got something to do beside my chem hw :)

I stated playing my freshman year. My dad always tried to push me into the game but i was a baseball player, and though of golf as an old guys sport. The summer before my freshman year, however, i played with my dad over our vacation because i was bored. Ended up being pretty naturally talented and fell in love with the game, i feel like i've had a club in my hand since.

I started playing when i was 12, struggled as a rightie for a cpl weeks before switching to a leftie, and started improving from that day and every day since. It helped my progress that i have been on skates basically since i was out of the womb as my hockey background helped me get started. Short Canadian summers don't help, but I rarely take a day off in the summer and have started practicing between hockey and university in the winter.
