I play a lot of golf as a single. actually, I play a lot of golf...much of it as a single, some in league and then my course has a ton of regulars that we all have gotten to know and I often hook up with them. being retired gives you all kinds of opportunities.

I try to avoid women, younger males with more testosterone than talent, guys dressed like PGA professionals (wannabees) and guys who with their cell phones on their hips.

Play by myself about 90% of the time. Otherwise, I will play with whoever I get paired with. Sometimes play with my dad.

Me, myself and I are typically paired up with another lucky player or two ... I live in the 'burbs near a course, and my friends ... they live in the city far from a semi-private or daily fee course.

Most with my son. A good bit with the guy that owns the course where I work, and a good bit with another course owner we are friends with. My wife when she's not working and the guys in the choose up games.

Used to play a lot by myself but not much anymore. The last time I did I shot a really, really good round and felt like it didn't matter at all. When I got home my wife asked me how I played and I said really good but nobody saw and nobody cared.

At age 57, it's can be difficult sometimes to have a group of golfer to play regularly with, but, I have accumulated about 6 consistant friends to golf with. We usually get out 2-3/week. The age range is from 55-72 yo.

I had a group of buddies I regularly played with when I was a member in my hometown. I've since moved, and usually play with my brother-in-law, guys from work, or as a single.

I use to play a lot by myself, but recently got paired up with a guy around my age (usually I play with older guys, this guy actually went to middle school with me) and so usually I invite him whenever I go out. I use to golf on occasion with my brother but he moved out of town (although he's moving back next week so maybe we'll play more together).

We have a group of about 12 guys......4 of whom really make up the core.  We play every Sunday, and at least one buddy and I are generally able to get out Friday afternoons too.

I never play alone.

i have 4 close friends at my club, every friday at 1130 i play with at least 2 of them but ussually 3. on occasion when we are free there are floaters that we can get a 2nd foursome to play with. If i had more time to golf I could get a game several days a week at various times with different groups...someday that will be an option!!

With my son 100% of the time, he got me back in the game over a year and a half ago. But with his last tryouts today for the HS Team if he makes it not sure he will have the time or the want?

My father in law 95% of the time will also come along, but i don't have a group or set regulars at this point.

My younger sisters boyfriend (surprise surprise) haha....he is hardcore into golf, but pretty much stinks. Not that I'm that much better. We both really got into golf this past summer, and he would play way more than me. He'd probably play or atleast hit the range 4 times a week. He still has yet to beat me lol Other than him, usually play alone after work, sometimes with my girlfriends parents

      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
