Do I have a problem if 95% of my day is thinking about golf?

64 posts in this topic

I'm an absolute, 100% fanatic; a golf addict. I always thinking about my swing, equipment and the next time I'm going to the range or the course.

I'm totally obsessed with this game and the golf bug has bit me hard. I've been taking lessons with amazing results and it seems all I want to do is hit balls, whether at the range or getting out on the course.

I'm always looking at my clubs and daydreaming  during the winter months or finding a way to practice indoors, to keep my swing sharp. I'm very happy that I found this game. It keeps me out of trouble and I needed a passion like this in my life. The only problem is that I have an addictive personality and I'm definitely addicted to golf. I'm not making any impulse purchases for the sake of having the newest club or anything like that it's just that I'm really obsessed with the game. It's always fun, which is good but as soon as it stops becoming fun then I'll have to step back and reassess everything. I honestly don't find that happening anytime soon though. There are too many courses to play and way to big of a learning curve to EVER get bored of the game.

Anyone else addicted to the sport like this?

It is so bad for me that my wife will tell me, "you are thinking about Golf again aren't you."  She can just tell.

She told me about a week ago that I am miserable to be around when it is not golf season and that she cannot wait for the season to start... in those general terms anyway.

I think about golf about three times as much, as the other subject men think about.

I often "pretend" to watch TV or a movie with my wife but secretly I'm thinking about golf the whole time. Sometimes she'll catch me, ask me a question about what we're watching and I'll be totally stumped! Lol. She gets all mad! "Are you thinking about golf AGAIN???" And I'll reply, "actually my pivot, why?" She's given up at this point. Letting me go to Erie next month for lessons at Golf Evolution and a membership next season. Moral of the story? Hang in there, you'll wear her down eventually.

Ha, ha, ha!!! This is great. I feel much better knowing that I`m in like-minded company. This is a great forum, so glad I found it. Golf is officially a passion for me now and I know for a fact that it drives my family NUTS! I`m always thinking about certain aspects of my swing and I mean always. Like I stated in another thread, I finally completed my set and it`s incredible. The only thing that keeps me sane during the winter months is looking at my clubs and how beautiful they are. lol . That and indoor ranges and lessons. Cheers everyone!!

Im just the same. Im reading The Match right now and I thought about going to a local course and shooting my low score for about an hour before I feel asleep last night. I also have a wedge in my living room that I will go pick up and grip and kinda do slow swings.  What funny to me is I give my wife shit about going on Facebook and Pinterest all the time. Her quick response is how many times were you on your golf site today(the sand trap).  Then I just shut my mouth.

I constantly give her shit so yeah some times or Im looking up new clubs on ebay or on here (which is almost always).  I don't have a room to hit balls so I just take practice swings in my living room or putt but I haven't putted in a while.

I said "wear her down" not "break her". The trick is to get her to realize how loving and attentive to her needs you become when you get to play enormous amounts of golf not make her see how mean spirited and hateful you can be when you don't get your way. Subtle difference I know, but an important distinction. ;-)

Id say you know what your talking about but you don't know my wife so your kinda talking stupid. We've been together for 10 years and over that time I feel in love with shooting clays and spent more $$$$ and time then Id even care to guess.  She's the coolest person Ive ever met and has no problem with my obsessions since she my favorite one.  She's totally cool with me playing enormous amounts of golf she actually got a set of clubs from her mom so hopefully she will be able to come with me 1 or 2 times a year. :-P

Ha.  My wife does this all the time too. She'll look at me and say, correctly, "You're thinking about your swing, aren't you?"

She told me about a week ago that I am miserable to be around when it is not golf season and that she cannot wait for the season to start... in those general terms anyway

Well I live in southern California, so I don't have this problem.  But I'd like to think my wife's cool enough that she'd say this instead of being pumped about fewer weekends where I'm away golfing a significant part of one day...

Ha.  This is true for me, and only getting more and more true the older I get.

    • My irons keep breaking
      Hi all, first time posting. Basically looking some advice.  Bought a new set of wilson staff irons 2 years ago after being custom fitted for them in the local American Golf store.  About a month after i got them, the head flew off the 4 iron upon striking the ball from the fairway. Returned it to get repaired.  A few months later the exact same thing happened the same club. The store arranged for the whole set to get sent off to be checked.  Then just on Saturday past, the same thing happened to my pitching wedge. I returned to store yet again and they've sent the whole set off again.  My issue is that I've got zero confidence in the clubs. What can i do in this situation? I'm not in the position of splashing out on a whole new set of irons.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I scored a set of MacGregor IMG woods for nz$1 (50p uk, 70c US). Maybe not the most exotic clubs. In fact, they'd aspire to being ordinary. But I can't complain about the price :)   bm
