When Pirelli Tires asks you if you want to go golfing with their first sponsored golfer, Francesco Molanari, you say yes. You figure out that whole don't make a fool of yourself while trying to golf with a PGA pro thing later. 

But golf is that gentlemen's sport. You're going to need it for a meeting, a casual round before that business investment for your new start up, or for the one time you're going to need to impress your girl's dad.  

On a perfect day at Buffalo Tournament Club, I embarrassingly teed off with Molinari and in the kindest way, he schooled me. The pointers that follow are for the fellow rookies, on how to golf with a Pro and not completely suck while doing it.
