I try to play at least twice a week. I'm not too bad. Finally got some new clubs this past spring and they have helped my game a lot.
what the heck its offseason and chatter gets old, im pulling my clubs out of attic and golfing today for first time in years. golfing at monroe country club where Michael Jordan and Lawrance Taylor have played. Living in monroe and have only played courses within a 100 mile radius i've sure i've never played golf where a fin player has....but who knows. has anyone played a course with or after a fin player has and how have ya done. im a horrible golfer and only shot in the 90's where MJ and LT played. anyone show danny boy up.....and yes this is a bored drunken post but what the hay
Got golf league this afternoon. 20 rounds of 9 each year and I get to get out of work early to do it. We also try to line up the vendors to take us for 18 ocassionally.
It can be an expensive game if you play all the time so any free rounds help.
It is the most challenging game that I have ever played. That is what keeps me coming back to play it. Unfortunately I don't seem to be getting much better over the years. Probably dropped 5 strokes from when I first started playing nearly 40 years ago. But when things go right it can be quite an adreline rush.
Last week I couldn't get off the tee without putting my ball in the hazard. But for two straight holes I chipped in from 30 feet and then from 30 yards. Never do that again in a lifetime. Both times were to save double boggies because of errant tee shots. One part of your game will be working but then another fails you. But at the moment of the hole ins I was on top of the world.
Golf is somewhat like a football team working together. Offense, defense, special teams compared to tee shots, chipping and putting. You have to put all three together to have an excellent effort. Hopefully I come up with one hole today where all three things are clicking and I get the ever elusive first birdie of the year.
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1

I have the same problem. When my iron game is going good that day, my driving is awful. When i'm driving the ball straight, I can't chip or use my irons for ****.
I'll master it one day.
Shot a 52 last night. Started out with 7 & 8 on 1st two holes to kill my round. Settled down after that to end the round strong with a par on a hole that I havent gotten par on in a long time.
Left a couple more pars out there with some crappy putting.
You just never get a level putt. But I usually score much better when I go to another course so its all good.

Yeh then you have a nice cigar (or a cheapie) and a brewski that way you have something to blame your poor golfing on. I started playing 3 years ago and usually am landing in the 94-102 range. Probably going to take my first lesson soon.
