Find a Stable Putter or Midrange and start there.

Am I the only one that is not surprised that his first driver was a Groove?

As for a driver that is beginner friendly, anything that is speed 7-8 or 9 should be fairly forgiving and allow you to learn proper form. So things like a Trak, Teebird, Leopard, etc. would work. If you really want to get better quicker, you should play like no one else so later you can play like no one else and use just mids and putters until you can throw a mid 250-300' like LB397 mentioned.

Innova Leopard and Discraft Buzzz are all you need, wish someone had told me that when I first started playing, though I got lucky and bought an Archangel as my first disc because I thought the stamp was tits, was way more forgiving than a groove....which is #2 on my do not buy list, I threw my buddy's a couple years ago and good heavens, it was hellish. #1 thing is to have fun though

I know lol. The ongoing joke around here is that whenever a new player throws a driver, it is always either a champ groove or a champ boss. The groove is infamous for being the most inconsistent disc ever made.

Now that I’ve gone through the beginner stages and own way too many (bad/unused) discs… I like the idea of:

Leopard AND Teebird… you’ll get an idea of what different stableness of disc can mean. Maybe a champ TB and a star Leo to find out how different plastics wear in and feel. (plus, if you loose one, you have the other)

Buzzz, Roc or Mace for a mid… only need one.

Wizard, Aviar, or Pure for a putter (buy 2, in same color and weight)
