I only use my phone but I'm starting to question its accuracy sometimes. Every so often I'll pop it out and it seems to be significantly off and have to close the app and start it again to resync with the GPS.
Shot a 50 (+14, 34.6/129). Played like crap, again. I played a different course than my usual and played tees which are equivalent to the blues at my home course. It was too long for me today mostly because I was so cautious with my driver and wasn't getting my typical distance. Therefore, I had no GIR. My irons weren't very good again either. My putting is still improving and was pretty good again today, so that's a positive. I was rolling it well and sunk a few...
Congrats on such an awesome trip. My 30th is in September, wouldn't mind trying to do something similar.
I find wedges around the greens constantly. I always put it in my cart, not my bag, and turn it into the pro shop afterwards. I don't put it in my bag simply so I don't forget to turn it in.
49 (+13, 33.5/125). Another awful outing. I had no control over my driver and got lucky quite a few times. My irons were erratic. About the only thing I feel improving right now is my putting. I rolled it well and missed a few by inches. Definitely getting better there and soon they'll start dropping. I've been avoiding it, but it feels like I need to get a few lessons or I'll drive myself crazy.
Some folks have other obligations. I can't be out for 4-5 hours every time, in fact I play 9 2-3 times a week and 18 maybe once every other weekend.
Public. I have a "Twilight Club" membership where I can play unlimited after 5pm each day and/or get two large range buckets per day, also after 5pm. For the typical 9-5/M-F person it's a great deal at $50/mo. I typically play 2-3 9s per week. Cart is extra at $10 for 9 holes. Normally 9 holes with cart costs $26-29 weekday/weekend, so the savings adds up quick. A weekend morning at this place is $58 for 18. I do feel the obligation to play at my home course, and...
I always ride. I don't have a pull/push cart and lugging my bag on my back isn't appealing to me and my easily irritated lower back. I also don't really play golf for the health benefits. I'd like to walk it once if I could borrow a push cart from a friend, but I don't know of anyone who has one. My home course requires carts for non-members, so it's not really an option for me anyway and I don't mind that.
I would imagine the economy has had more of an impact on golf. $50 rounds aren't cheap for the majority of folks out there, many of which are just happy to have a job.
Great thread. It seems like you need to refocus what you want out of playing golf as a hobby. Going in with an expectation that doesn't seem to happen, regardless of what it is, will always be a let down and make you question your commitment. Stop buying equipment, don't practice, and just go out and play with a completely recreational frame of mind. When you get on the first tee, take in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings. When you miss a putt, get animated in...
