Same thing happened to me. I tried to pick it up for 2 summers and live 2 minutes from a local course. Both times I hurt my hand so bad I couldn't pick anything up - even after taking lessons.
My son started at the youth golf clinic at the local course and I finally figured out I hurt my hand because I was holding the club wrong. Fixed that and have been on a tear since then. Gets me outside for a few hours and presents a similar fat guy friendly challenge.
