Looks kind of like a fools bet now, doesnt it?
During the winter I walk 30 minutes on my lunch break.During the nicer weather, I do the same, but also take my dog on a 2.5 miles walk after work.My issue is that I sit at a desk all day and I am busy. By the time I get home I am just worn out. Especially after cooking dinner and helping my kids with their homework. Now when I get home I do my best not just to sit down, but to stay on my feet and moving!
I am trying to incorporate alot of these, however the daily grind just seems to beat me down.   I had started jump roping at the begining of the year, in the garage. However it snowed, alot, and I had to put my car in the garage. I am doing 45-60 second planks every morning And I am lifting weights as often as I can.   Always something to work on!
I find it soooo much easier to bail on work and just show up at a local 27 hole course. they usually just let me go off on 1 of the 3 Nines by myself. My my golf friends are 18 or nothing. Not to mention trying to coordinate with the guys can be complicated. They want to play close to home, not close to where I work. they want different times. And 9 or 18 with some of them can turn into an excursion.   Really, if you are playing golf you just need you a ball and the...
I already do....   Bwaahahahaha!
It is funny that I encountered this very scenario this year. Typically with my normal scramble 4some if we are putting for birdie and get one with in the grip of a putter, we consider that par if it is super close or tap it in, and continue on putting for birdie. I know it is "technically" not proper, but it moves us along and keeps us from marking a 6" putt and holding up groups behind us.  a gimme is a gimme!  Now mid summer I played in a charity scramble with 3 guys I...
My point was that any other team is probably filled with a bunch of guys, possibly drunk to varying degrees, who maybe out for the only outing of the year. They are going to do what they do and there is nothing you can do about that. They are out there to have fun and if they need to cheat to have fun and possibly win, what can you do about it? complain to the organizer? I have never seen anyone DQ from a scramble.I have seen some people pass out, or OD but no DQ I myself...
MosMost the scrambles I play are either for charity or organized by a friend. Either way at the end of the day the charity or organizer/promoter makes their money on the scramble and they dont really care which drunk bends the rules. I have seen the worst fall down drunks collect their sleeve of balls for shooting a 18 under, when in fact they were the group infront of me and they were lucky to get off the tee. I dont usually equate Scrambles with integrity and...
When I first started playing and joined a golf league I had no confidence in my game. I was as likely to shank a ball just because I was worried about not hitting it well. Which of course led to me trying not to shank a ball, which lead to me tensing up and shanking the ball. It is a vicious circle, which goes around and around, which makes it a circle! It does not help that I used to suffer from bad anxiety, I used to get near crippling stage fright before performance...
Never during any round that meant something. Even if I was simply playing to see how well I score. However I would give it a try once, maybe during a "fart around" round to see if it really offered more as advertised. Maybe at a "beer drinking" Scramble, because my group never seems to win anyway (too many bloody marys, way too early)
