That shot by Cink was incredible! Around a 250 yard par-3, and he stiffs it to about, what, 6 feet?!
Not really quotes or proverbs, but more like a quip.   Heard this the other day:   After a bad shot: "Too much loft.  Lack Of Firkin Talent"   After making a 20 foot put to complete a triple bogey:  "Like whipped cream on shti."   I don't have the most "refined" playing partners, and I wouldn't have it any other way...
greensidelg,   I only have two questions:   1.  Where do you live?   2.  Do you need any new golfing buddies?  
Going to the US Open at Merion.  Practice round on Tuesday, going alone, to really walk the course and hopefully not deal with the crowds.  Then, I'm going again on Sunday with 3 friends, but I suspect I'll regret not being able to see very much.  I did a little "recon" mission today, to just drive around the public access roads near the course.  It's pretty cool, watching the regular members hack it up like the rest of us, but with giant TV stand scaffolding all over...
Another vote for the Costco Callaway Hex Pro.  I'm starting to improve, and not lose so many balls, so I wanted to try a better ball.  I've tried the Bridgestone E6 and RXS, Srixon Z-Star and Q-Star, and Pro V1 and V1x.   For me, the Costco Callaway Hex Pro, at $24/dz, is a nice combination of quality ball and acceptable price.  I don't feel awful when I still lose one, but the better feel is certainly noticeable around the greens.   Probably not for everyone, but for...
I was in a similar situation last year.  I joined a local club near my house based purely on geography; I could not care less about the social offerings...  I was just getting back into golf after a long hiatus, and lost touch with most of my prior golf friends.  So, I was a "single" golfer.   Within weeks, I had met dozens of people, and within a few months of playing with different groups, I fell into a social group of guys who are of similar ages, and we all have...

I'm late to the thread, so my apologies if this has been covered...   I voted "too difficult", but I really think it's a combination of too difficult, too expensive, and takes too long.  If the game was easier, and beginners were quicker to hit those satisfying shots that make us addicts, then I could see them finding a way to justify the cost and the time away from family.  But, golf is pretty frustrating to learn, and the newbie usually has to spend time really...
Thanks for pointing this out!  I was able to watch some at work today...
I played Talking Stick, in Scottsdale off of Rt 101, a few months ago.  It's fairly flat, and relatively inviting for a high handicapper.  I found some of the other more famous "desert golf" courses to be a bit frustrating for my game (around a 20 tcp).  It's also a bit cheaper than some of the other big name courses... Not value golf, but not $250/round either...   http://www.talkingstickgolfclub.com/index.php
