Get this: If you took up golf today, once you had the basics down, you could play in the same game as Tiger Woods and still hold your own! No matter what your skill level... thanks to your 'handicap.'
You've heard of a golf handicap right? It's the system that compensates for your level of expertise... no matter WHO you play with.
PGA pro Suzy Whaley shows your fellow viewer Kristen Sodemann and me how the handicap makes golf unique compared to most other sports.
You can go to HLNtv.com/Robin or PGA.com for more lessons and pictures from my training.
I'm going to be playing with Bubba Watson, the Masters champ, at the PGA's Pro-Am, right before the Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda. Watch that, next week on our sister network TNT.
If you're interested in taking up golf check out "Get Golf Ready." It's a PGA program designed to get you out on the course in just 5 lessons!
Thanks to the Atlanta Country Club where we shot most of these segments.
