    It's all about practice and commitment, I started playing about 15 years ago playing off 18, After lots and lots of time and effort i am now still playing off 18.

    I don't practice enough :)

    The best tip i can give you is get some lessons, every time you feel like buying a new club put your wallet away and book a few lessons.

    Just hit the ball really straight and really far. Chip on to the green with a bit of backspin and pop it in for a birdie.

    (I have a spare coaching session over the weekend if you want, I'll send you my account details...)

    Practice you short game, it doesn’t matter if you are a short hitter, the real savings are chipping and putting, as Abu says lessons are well worth it but not many have short game tuition.

    Need more information. Best to start with telling us your worst shot, the shot you really want to eliminate or improve.

    concentrate on improving your short game. This is where you’ll bring your handicap down.

    Just snap your clubs over your knee, lob them in the bin and get pissed in the clubhouse pal; ) It will save all that walking and fannying about trying to retrieve your balls in the rough because you're shit at golf mate.
    As for tips, don't eat yellow snow; )

    Course management.
    In other words don't take on shots yo cannot manage.
    I only hit it 220 and play off 6.
    Of you play off 18 you have a shot a hole so play each hole as a bogey.

    Only my first lesson comes free ;-)

    As above , lessons and practice particularly short game helps a lot.
    Most important thing is to enjoy the game though.
    The single most useful thing for me which didn't involve lessons or practice was getting a golf GPS, I was surprised at how far out my distance estimations were to the middle of the green even in my own club. Knowing the distance and how far you hit a club gives a lot of confidence.
