Golf is an addiction.   My favorites to play/watch are soccer and surfing.   ...I live in OK, so no surfing. ...I blew out my ankle, so no more competitive soccer. ...I also like watching college football up until Oklahoma loses to a crappy team.   That takes us right back to golf - my addiction and my current favorite sport to play. 
Not up to 20 scores posted yet, but it's looking like when I get to the 20th, I'll be somewhere around a 10 or 11...  (Currently 8.2)
I know someone who looks down on people who use golf as a verb in sentences like: "I like to golf." "I like to play golf," he says.  "Golf is not a verb!" And yet, he is happy to say something like, "He's a good golfer." I have always found this funny.   "Golfer" comes from "golf" + "-er" and means something like "someone who plays golf".

Still haven't made it to 20 scores posted.  My 'faux' handicap is artificially high thanks to a few good rounds.  Today's 87 is more representative than my last outing's 78.
87 and I sucked.  Much worse than an 87.   3 penalties, hit a short layup almost 80 yards right of the target.... missed putts both sides of the cup, missed fairways on both sides (only hit ONE fairway)....   And worst of all, I don't get to play again until next Monday.  :(
Played a scramble - our foursome shot 66.  If it had been just me, it probably would have been mid-80s.
78.  And that is the first time I've been under 80 on a par-72.  (All the other times were at a par-70.)
84.   Only hit two fairways.  ...says something about how easy the course is...
