    I'm kind of new to the wonderful game (or so I am told) of golf.  Now I go to the driving range on a regular basis and have mastered the golf shot from the mat.  But hey, what do you know, put me on a course and I cannot for the life of me hit a clean shot from the grass.  Can someone please tell me where I'm going wrong?

      hmm not I.. I really hate golf as my step father when I was a kid made me play it. I hated to be forced to do things. Hopefully someone else can answer this for ya... smile But hmm logically I would think hit the ball on the bottom with the club really hard. It should go someplace. lol

    You can use a tee on the grass only if it is your first shot on that particular hole. You cannot use a tee on any other shot. There could many reasons why you are having trouble. Maybe you are taking your eye off the ball when swinging your club. I would get someone to watch you, they could give you a better idea of what you are doing wrong.

    I Always suggest to New players that to break the habit of using a mat (or security blanket) they tee off with a driver.

    Always play the ball on the fairway with a putter...
    Always se a snorkel in the water hazard...
    And Always putt on the greens with a sand wedge.

    The rest of the game will quickly fall into shape for you if you:
    Always yell "Fore" when your opponents are teeing off.

    Glad I could help lol
