Re: Qualified for a tournament. Bad father? Wife guilt trip
Is his wife really being THAT harsh? I mean if the guy plays with you 3-4 times a month, that means he's playing once a week, which really isn't too bad... I think it's kind of normal for couples (bf/gf, husband/wife, dad/mom/kids, etc) to be spending time together. Playing golf once a week isn't like she's riding him for playing once a month... I think it's a decent amount and more than many dads/husbands get to get out there. I think that some of us on this site just have a different view on things due to being so obsessed with the sport. Playing any sport (skiing, soccer, hockey, golf, etc) once a week is a pretty good amount, when it comes to 2-3 times a week, it's normal not too be too thrilled about it when you're the other person. Relationships are about compromises. Why don't some of you try and get your wives/gfs/significant others to play golf with you instead? As a poster above said, once his kid started playing, all of a sudden it's something you do together. I started snowbaording and golfing with my gf and it's an awesome time we can spend together doing something and being outside on the weekends. No?
