I got heavily into golf about 2 years ago but still not very good.
I do PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELING for frustrated golfers. My office is the 19th hole at the many public (and private) golf courses in our area. You might be surprised to hear that there are many, many frustrated golfers out there. They think that because they hit one great shot, they will be able to repeat it. They think because they shot a "career best" yesterday, they would do it again today. Guess what, guys and gals------------------NO ONE conquers golf-----Tom Morris and son, Harry Vardon, Jones, Hagen, Hogan, Snead, Nelson, Palmer, Nicklaus, and Tiger NEVER did------------and NEITHER WILL YOU------------that is the attraction and challenge of "The Greatest Game of All", as Mr. Nicklaus called it in the title of one of his books.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

My first post on this board. Hi yall. Ive been away from golf for about 7 years, and I started back playing a little this year.

Spent the last 7 years cave diving. As the dives got longer and deeper, some of the buddies dropped out. At the same time, I was catching some flack at home, so my reg dive bud and I decided to back off a little, skip a few dives, and hit some golfs.

The game sure ain't no easier than it was seven years ago.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

I do a little woodworking. I'm not particularly accomplished, but along with golf it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble for the most part.

This is a busy time of year.......seems like woodworkers are always filling requests for Christmas. Lots of jewelry boxes, humidors, etc...... Here's a small jewelry box that's getting close. A beautiful piece of curly maple and Bolivian rosewood. My cruddy pic doesn't do the maple justice......it's depth and iridescence is amazing.

I love saltwater/reef aquariums. I like riding/racing motorcycles but golf and the aquarium thing are my top 2.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

although golf is definitely one of my favorite hobbies, i also enjoy restoring classic cars (i have 4 Mustangs: a 67 GTA 390 Fastback, and a 68 GT Coupe as well as a 96 Mystic Cobra and an 04 Mystichrome Cobra), and i like restoring old soda machines. I also collect vintage gas station signs and clocks too. plus i love to fish for redfish and snook. im currently turning a small barn/stable on my property into a vintage Texaco Station which takes up most of my free time these days.

Bowling (however I'm forced to take a season off to heal from an injury), bicycling (We're riding our triplet, a bicycle built for three across the USA starting the middle part of May 2009), Motorcycling, I'm a Goldwing rider since 1985.

My 10 year old niece and I hope to hit a few golf courses during our upcoming trip this summer. Otherwise I will not be golfing for 3 whole months...that would be bad.

Fishing of course.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Reading, walking my dog on the beach, and that's about it.

I'll be lucky if I keep up the ambition to play golf much longer.

Since I've retired, I've missed work exactly as much as I've missed the chicken pox that I had when I was eight.

Some people were designed to veg out.

saltwater fly fishing/tying from my kayak. Nothing better than catching a 30" redfish on a flyrod and letting him give you a sleigh ride in a kayak in a foot of water.

I love baseball. Almost as much as golf. Also, I really want to learn to play the acoustic.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

Craps.

Don't get to play all too often (which is probably a good thing). When I do get to play though, boy is it fun! Just got back back from a trip to Mesquite and did alright for myself. Taught a friend how to play too. We both had a good time.

Re: Hobbies besides Golf?

I just started investing in golf to be one of my hobbies. My other hobbies are Woodworking, Photography, Cycling, and building Guitars. Would home improvement DIY projects count as a hobby? lol

Kind regards,
