If the weather cooperates at all I try to play twice a week.

I used to play almost every single day (whether the weather cooperated or not) and from daylight to dark on any day I didn't work. I had a cover and a heater in my cart and could play in almost any weather except for the occasional snow we get here in Alabama.

I was obsessed with wanting to consistently shoot even par on our par 72, 68 course rated course. Just about the time I got to that level I had to drop my membership for financial reasons and pay to play twice a week at another course where they gave my family a good deal.

I had to lose the obsession and learn to be somewhat satisfied with shooting in the mid-seventies twice a week on a par 70 course that is not course rated but would probably be about a 65 if it was.

Occasionally everything clicks and I can go pretty low now, but not very often.

Young retiree here - ex-military - in FLA so I can get out 2-3/week......I play an equal amount of tennis so I'm having a hard time balancing the two.

I try to get out on the practice area (short game/putting or range) on days that I don't get out to play.

Since joining my first golf club on the 1st of March Ive played 5 times and over the Easter school holidays Ive got 3 rounds and a lesson in the books for Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Will try and get out 3 more times over the holiday (family permitting) otherwise Im trying to play at least once a week with a couple practice sessions thrown in between.

Once per pay check, so twice a month or so. But if the weather cooperates 4/6 & 4/7 going out to the NAVY Base. 18 in the morning, 18 after lunch each day, both days! Great stuff.

Did I mention another two inches of Snow for tomorrow? RATS!!! Just put the snow blower away last night!

I've seen the Grounds keepers out working at the local courses, doing every thing except placing the flags.

Like NASA says: 10,9,8,7,6, (This is where I am), 5,4,3,2,1, TEE OFF!

I play at least once a week, 52 weeks a year. Half the year I'll play a 2nd round in a week. I'll probably play 80 rounds this year.

Over the course of a year I will play around 110-120 times (18 holes) which works out to around 3 times a week.  When the weather cooperates in SE Michigan it is closer or slightly above 120 and when it does not cooperate (like this year) more like 100-110.

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
