Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

I play squash 3X/week as well as hockey 3x/week. I also am into dogs and reading (mostly fiction or political books).

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Used to hunt a bit...but that has slowed down...nay, halted since getting back into golf.

I enjoy reading, college football, family time, fishing, grilling out and the virtues of really cold light beer.

Snowboarding in the winter and golf the rest. Play most of the major sports recreationally.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Playing tennis, skiing (difficult to keep up with this one since I live in Georgia), reading, collecting sports art (I highly recommend Rick Rush's artwork-very classic stuff).

Basketball, preferably outdoors on a cool day. Now you may not consider this a sport, but I love to BBQ. ;)

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

i was a hardcore rockcrawler untill i sold my jeep 2 weeks ago.. got tired of throwing money at it and watching it break...

i'm gonna build a more mediocre jeep here in a couple months or so.. something much smaller and on 35" tires or less.... something that i can still go off road in and it will be at least semi-street legal...

that has been my biggest hobby for the last 5 years.. i loved every minuite of it untill i went overboard with the high dollar parts and it became more expensive than it was fun...

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

My biggest hobby anymore is chasing my 3 kids, 8 months, 2 years, and 5 years. But I am also into archery, shooting, and raising our growing chicken flock.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Two other items:
1. I do work out on a regular basis, and have a personal trainer, who is located at our local YMCA. We concentrate on specific exercises to develop strength and flexibility in core muscles and those muscles that are important in golf. We have many golfers in our area, and he decided that he needed to become an expert in that area.

2. Reading books in history, business and government. I majored in government, and took many courses in economics, business, and history. The two most recent books that I have read are "1776" by David McCullough and "Team of Rivals" by one of my college instructors, Doris Kearns Goodwin. Obviously, many people are reading the latter because Barack Obama is following the same philosophy that Lincoln did when he appointed Seward, Bates, Chase, and Stanton to his cabinet. He was NOT afraid to appoint former political opponents to key positions in the cabinet. It takes a REAL LEADER to do that. In this day and age, political and business leaders seem to like to have cabinets or Boards that are submissive, rather than contentious. We LACK FOR REAL LEADERS in this country in business and government. Where have all THE REAL LEADERS gone? I will end my comments here since I have posted some in the "Grill Room" on this website.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

With golf, who has time or can afford another hobby? I play golf, practice golf, watch The Golf Channel (and any other golf on TV) and go 'window shopping' at golf stores.

For the time left after all that, my hobbies are watching movies (I watch 6-10 movies a week) and racquetball during winter.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

I am into customizing Volkswagens. I am working on an 87 Jetta coupe. Next project is either a late 80's GTI or any Beetle. Not sure which yet as I need to find it.I love spelunking and hiking as well.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Photography: dSLR and very recently, medium format (120 film)

Dogs: Breed, raise, show in conformation Scottish Terriers. Scotties are what Pres. Bush has ie Barney. Ours are quite a bit better.

Travel: Some due to the dogs, some independently. Recent trips: Bangkok, Tokyo, parts of Sweden and Denmark, western areas of Germany, Ireland, Alaska. Have tried to do some golfing on the trips. Also lots of travel pics.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Travel is the big one for my wife and I. Are up to about 90,000 miles so far this year on our travels with a couple more trips planned before the year is out...13 countries so far this year.

I'm jealous! Scotties are fantastic dogs, such characters! My wife and have said we're going to get one when we are older after we're done with bigger terriers. We haven't got the bigger terrier (most likely a Wheaten) yet so it's a little ways off. We live vicariously through our friends dogs at the moment!
