    I used to golf every day in the six months of decent weather we have here. Truly a frustrating game if one isn't good at it. I wasn't good at it but got better by fall and then basically had to start over every spring. But you won't have the weather issues that I had.

    I use to pretty often. Havent in 2 plus years though. Thought about getting new irons and starting again.

    I was scratch - for a long time, then I had to work crazy hours to make a great living. After that I kept working, then I had a kid, haven't been able to play since.

    I have a set of sticks, but when I step on a golf course, people in Scotland roll over in their graves!

    Once upon a time, back in the 90's three of my buddies and I would go out an golf quite often and have a blast. The course we belonged to was open year-round and we would go even in the winter sometimes. Of course, we'd always arrive with alcohol (shhHhhh!) and wouldn't really get a lot of golfing accomplished, but those golf carts sure are fun. They don't make very good bumper cars, though. We just blamed it on the damn ice...which sometimes fell onto our laps at the most inopportune moment. Ever play electric buggy polo-golf before?

    I'm a very avid golfer. I was offered a spot as a walk-on at the university I attended. I haven't played much in the last year because of work. Now I've got a neck issue and I don't know when I'll be able to play again.

    I feel your pain. Aside from the kid, I'm in the same boat. My last round was 2 under.

    I was a scratch golfer too.  After my tee shot I'd scratch my head and wonder where the ball went.

    LOL.  But seriously... most rounds I'd play in the mid-70's...
    if it got much warmer than that I sweat too much and could get a good grip on the clubs.

    I just recently purchased new irons. I'm not sure when I want to get fitted for them. My swing is still all over the place.  I still tend to extreamly change my swing instead of letting the diff clubs do the work.

    are you taking lessons? If you want to take it serious i would recommend a few lessons to get the basics down. That should help with the grip, swing, and all the **** that makes your ball end up in the lake.

    Does youtube count? 
    What I meant was, my swing speed is not consistent.

    I just remind myself I don’t practice and hit hundreds of golf balls everyday and also not on the pro tour. Makes all my bad shots go away quicker.

    I used to golf a couple times a week.  Then one of my buddies joined the army and the other moved to Hollyweird to make movies and TV (and he's been successful).

    My handicap was something like 35.  I sucked.  There was always that one shot that kept bringing me back.  But when I had no friends to go with, it all ended.  Getting married to a non-golfer put the nail in the coffin.  I went once and to the range twice after saying "I do" 17 years ago.  Grad school move meant selling the clubs.

    I have a friend now who's a local pro.  He gave me a couple lessons for fun and said I actually would have had potential with some help.  I was entirely self-taught.  I've thought about getting into it again, but just can't justify the $$$ for clubs, let alone greens fees. 

    Nope, I've moved on to disc golf.  I'm just as bad, but a disc can be had for $10.  $25 for top of the line molds and plastics.  Courses are usually free.  Shorter playing time (courses are shorter).

    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I guess golf is about hitting a target with a small white ball. When I want to hit a target I use a wood arrow, a lead round ball, or a fishing fly.

    Any round under 100 or so and I’m happy. I can hit a 5iron over 250 and pitching wedge 150 every time but my putting and short game is trash. Got some old Wilson Staff irons and woods but looking to buy some newer Taylor Mades, wouldn’t mind getting some real Persimmon woods too, always liked them.
    If you quote me do the @TX98Z28 in your text or I won't be notified of your quote, Thanks.

    Taylor Made Burners about 7 years old.  Played in a night golf tourny last week.  Fairways looked like airport runways and it was a lot of fun.  Most of the game is talking $h!t to my buddies ...just like our poker games.

    Used to do 3 gun competitions, was good enough to get a free gun from Daniel Defense if I wore their shirt at the competitions. Wish my golf game was 1/2 as good as that.
