Or you could look at it differently seeing as you are spending all your time at a range: shooting on the course at some point is going to really mess up your range performance.
A few years back I took lessons for about a year, was doing well on the range. Had difficulty translating that to the course though. Shot choices, hazards, pressure all conspired against me.
BTW, look at ecco for golf shoes. Not the sexiest shoes on the planet (ok, the word clunky comes to mind as the politest adjective) but damn, ecco makes comfortable shoes. And if you like walking courses as opposed to spending 3/4 of the game sitting on your ass in a cart, comfort goes a long way to make up for the gunboat-look.
