Hey guys,

We have recently taken up golf and are now on a very tongue-in-cheek journey to becoming scratch golfers. Don’t worry, we’re closer to landing on the moon at this rate.

We document each round and would love to hear any feedback, tips or if anyone else around London/Essex wants to play.

Our latest video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6K8KtmpGbA

Check it out, if you can!

Lukas and Andrew

I may be in Surrey around the Holiday's but more than likely I'm gonna just let the wife go this trip and I'm gonna shoot for the May/June trip. I've never played golf there so I'm looking forward to leaving the bikes at home (shhhh don't tell them that) and taking the golf clubs! It would be great to have an insider knowledge to some great courses.

I can provide tips on fashion but you certainly don't want any swing tips from me!

Wow! Looks like you guys are having a great time.

Disclaimer: I AM NOT A SCRATCH GOLFER!

First tip: Tee up behind the tee markers, not in front!

Second tip: Practice putting. Putt, putt, putt. It will help reduce strokes. I liked your no-look putt. It almost went in!

Third tip: If you are not already doing it, use some swing lube! A beer or two per nine holes is my recommendation! Second disclaimer: I'm not a doctor, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express once!

Please post more videos, I'd like to see some progress.

Haha, thanks for checking us out. We really appreciate, mate!

We will definitely use the tips, especially tip #3. Feel like that one will come in handy

Yeah, we will definitely post more stuff. We are playing next month, a year to the day since we started so will be a good progress update.

Great video! Looks like fun! Tips? Take your putting a little tiny bit more seriously. Before you address the ball walk behind it and get a visual line. Then stand as if addressing your ball but a foot back. Practice your swing and speed until it's groovin. THEN step up, address, and hit. You'll save more strokes by good putting then anything else. After all on a par 4 half of those strokes are putts! :-) If you have grass or even carpet at home practice there. Its just getting that putter swing dialed in.

Be careful with the brew- it doesn't always make your score better but it might make you feel better about what you score!! LOL

Thanks very much, we glad you enjoyed it

Appreciate all the tips as well. We will definitely take them on board and apply them this weekend. We'll show you the progress update on our next video!

haha, yeah, I reckon we'll take the brew in small measures otherwise the putting may suffer even more!

ROFLOL OMG Tooooooooo Funny!
Maybe not walk all over your line to the hole when you are putting? Oh...and yuppers...it does help to eyeball where you want the ball to go when you putt. Just sayin. Love the enthusiasm...you'll get r done and down in the single digits in no time.
